Couple: Michael + Shannon

Venue: Crossbasket Castle.

Date:  29th December 2018

Weddings are wonderful occasions at the best of times, but when you throw in the magic of the festive season it’s hard to top. Shannon and Michael decided to tie the knot between Christmas and New year at Crossbasket castle which really is just the perfect setting.

We kicked the day off by visiting Shannon at her parents’ house, which was a veritable winter wonderland. There was a real jovial mood in the air and it was really easy to melt into the background to take some nice, natural photographs as Shannon and her bridesmaids prepared for the wedding.

Meanwhile, over at St Mary’s church, Michael and the boys were arriving and preparing to welcome the guests. After the ushers had shown everyone to their seats, Shannon and the girls arrived right on cue to commence with a lovely service. Shannon had arranged for the kids in her class to come and sing during the service, which was a great, personal touch.

After the ceremony, we headed on over to Crossbasket Castle for the rest of the celebrations. We first of all made use of the grounds at the castle and down by the river to take some nice, natural wedding photographs of Michael and Shannon. Then all of the guests had plenty of time to enjoy a cheeky wee glass of fizz before the speeches and dinner.

The bridesmaids, groomsmen and parents all put on quite a show on entering the grand hall, some very interesting dance moves on show! Not to be outdone, Michael and Shannon had some moves of their own and even had some confetti canons go off to announce their arrival.

Before the speeches, the guests had to earn their favours by finishing a quiz to see how well they knew the happy couple. It was like Christmas all over again as the winners returned to their tables with boxes full of goodies.

After the wedding dinner, there was a sudden outbreak of Queen, as the bridesmaids led the rest of the room in a good old singsong. We’ve never seen that before and it was loads of fun.

All that was left was to start the evening’s celebrations with a traditional first dance. Shannon and Michael were then joined on the dance floor by the rest of the bridal party before dancing the night away.
