Our Real Bride Grace


Ryan and I met through a mutual friend in our last year of university. No love at first sight stories here, more of a slow grower. Eventually we found ourselves making excuses to see each other and talking non stop when we did.

We’d been together for almost 5 years when ryan finally got down on one knee on the top of a mountain in France during a skiing holiday! I was shocked but so excited and amazed that he thought to buy a temporary ring for me to wear until we got back to Belfast. He’d picked out my ‘proper’ engagement ring but wanted the go ahead before committing (we nearly always make decisions together lol)!

After almost two years of saving and planning we tied the knot on the 25th November 2016! I struggled to imagine how everything would come together but in the end we were over the moon with the results!

Our ceremony and reception were held at Tullylagan country house hotel in cookstown with flowers by Janice Watt @ the flower studio Dungannon and ceremony music by Ruth Corry, harpist. Our fabulous photographer Denise Leacock captured all the special little touches that we put so much time into! After the wedding we were well and truly ready for a break and spent two fabulous weeks in Phuket, Thailand!

The girls at Pianta were so helpful and always there to answer any questions I had no matter how crazy I sounded! thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day the best day ever! Ryan & Grace x
