“We met 15 years ago due to mutual friends on a student night out and clicked instantly. After a few dates, we were soon spending every day with each other and have been together ever since. After a few months of seeing each other, Mark took me to Spain for my birthday and we have continued our loved of holidaying and traveling. We have visited some amazing places over the years, lived in Australia for a while and build up the best memories with each other.”
Fast forward to the 3rd of September 2021, Gráinne & Mark said “I do” at the beautiful Dunmore House and Gardens in Carrigans, Co Donegal. “The idea of having the ceremony in the stone barn really appealed to us and the marquee was perfect for dinner. The bridal party was also able to spend the morning getting ready in the beautiful period country home and guests were free to explore the beautiful gardens Dunmore had on site as well. Everyone at Dunmore was so helpful and Amelia was always there to answer my many questions and massively helped with the stress levels on the run up to the day.
Tom Colton from Spiritual Ceremonies performed the ceremony and incorporated hand fastening, an ancient Celtic ritual where the hands are tied together to symbolise the binding of two lives.
After the ceremony we took a trip to Gráinne’s family pub in Derry to celebrate with a pint (or 3) before heading back to Dunmore House to dance the night away.
