Aiste’s Wedding in a Beautiful Anna Campbell Gown

Aiste recently got married in the Summer, in this stunning Anna Campbell gown. Aiste brought along her fiancé and her son to give their opinion, we are getting lots more men in the boutique recently and we love it!! Always nice to see their reaction, but to be honest, anything Aiste put on, she looked absolutely amazing in.

Sit back, and enjoy these photos!

Wedding venues

I hope you all visited the Quirky Wedding Fair yesterday and got some great ideas for your wedding, as well as meeting some pretty cool people who run amazing wedding venues.

As wedding venues in Northern Ireland are like great, well kept secrets. When you type ‘wedding venues northern Ireland’ into google (I’m sure you’ve done it!) there you have some beautiful hotels, the ones in the centre of Belfast, the Hastings Group which have stunning hotels. If however, you want something a little different, not because you don’t like hotels, just because. Then I thought I’d help you a little, and provide you with a few I have come across in the last few months. I can assure you I didn’t know of any of these when I was getting married. I was like many newly engaged couples- I didn’t have a clue! It did help that I’d been bridesmaid a few times but when it came to venues, caterers, even my wedding dress it was down to a whole lot of research!! It however didn’t help that I got married before the days of Pinterest or Facebook pages or wedding blogs. I write that like it was many years ago, it was however only three years ago and it’s amazing how much things have moved on even since then! 

Lately I have stumbled across some beautiful venues, which I would definitely recommend checking out. When you’re choosing a venue, there’s a few things to consider.

Is it within your budget?

Can you have your ceremony there as well, is that included in the price?

How far is it from your ceremony, it’s hard enough finding somewhere half way between your families but if you can find somewhere close enough to the ceremony if they’ve already travelled it might help them a little. If you’ve found the perfect venue and you want to travel, it’s no biggy just ensure there’s time for photos.

What are the extra costs, such as hiring the kitchen (yes this is a cost), extra guests, is VAT included?

Is there somewhere for everyone to sit in between the ceremony and dinner, think of your grandparents.

Will you be providing tea/coffee/canapés, can these be bought if you’re not (for your hungry guests!)

Are there nice places to get photographs taken?

Are your caterers included, if not, I absolutely love Jane’s Kitchen and I can personally recommend their food. Another one which I’ve heard raving reports about are the Yellow Door, a little more expensive but for the real foodies.

Here are a few places to help you with your search (just click the name and it’ll bring you to their website):

Breckenhill
Ballyduggan Mill
Hillden Brewery
Larchfield
Limepark
Lisaanoure Castle
Riverdale Barn
The Carriage Rooms at Montalto
The Ulster Museum
Tullyveery House

And don’t forget Marquees !!

If you do choose a venue that is a little bit off the beaten track, make sure that you include directions either in your invitation or at the ceremony.. you don’t want people getting lost!
