Sarah and Andrew’s timeless wedding in July unfolded at the picturesque Magheramorne Estate. Their heartwarming ceremony at Newmills Presbyterian Church, Portadown, was a momentous occasion surrounded by cherished friends and family as they joyfully pronounced their commitment to a shared life.
Sarah’s bridal journey led her to the exquisite Castle Couture, where she discovered her dream gown, “Nouveau” by designer Suzanne Neville. The gown’s intricate pleat-detailing was a perfect match for her, as if it were crafted exclusively for this special day.
When asked about the proposal, Sarah shared a delightful tale: “It was a huge surprise! Andrew proposed at Stormont Estate, where we’d had one of our very first dates. Unfortunately, many things went wrong on the day… a park run was happening at the time he planned to propose, meaning we had to aimlessly walk around for 2+ hours until the crowd cleared away. Once that did happen, a group of tourists appeared with their iPads and were trying to take a picture of the trees where we were standing! Eventually, Andrew found a quiet spot and proposed. I was so surprised; it took me a while to calm down and actually answer the question!”
The couple thrives on the mutual encouragement they offer each other to be the best versions of themselves. Sarah finds a profound sense of security with Andrew, knowing she can rely on him for anything. She also cherishes his adventurous spirit, which continually nudges her beyond her comfort zone.
“For us, the most important thing is that we are finally getting married! We have been waiting for this day for a long time, and we cannot wait for marriage.”
Their first dance, set to Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” was a moment of pure romantic bliss.
