Patricia & Conor’s Real Wedding

Patricia and Conor spent 18 stressful months planning their wedding between New Zealand and Co. Down. After the perfect dress had been found and the venue hired, everything started to fall into place.  110 guests were invited to both the church and wedding reception and the newlywed couple spent their honeymoon travelling to Kenya and Zanzibar on the holiday of a lifetime.


The Bride with her Bridesmaids

Patricia went shopping in three different bridalwear shops and tried on between 10 and 15 different dresses before finding a dream gown! She had walked into the third store, based in Downpatrick, and had immediately seen the dress she ended up choosing.   Her strapless, Fara Sposa gown was altered slightly to make it unique, and the bride purchase a pair of shoes from the brand Pink, which were ivory, designed with lace.  Patricia accessorised her bridal look with a necklace which she had borrowed from her mother.


Patricia chose her sister to be chief bridesmaid and a very close friend from New Zealand to be her second bridesmaid. The girls both wore dark teal green, strapless dresses designed by Forever Yours. The dresses were altered to include a sash that dropped to the floor with a bow, and the girls wore jewellery that had been gifted to them as a thank you from the beautiful bride.
