Red Door Wedding

Deirdre and Peter’s Unforgettable Rainy Wedding: A Day of Love and Celebration

On a damp and drizzly morning in Newtowncunningham, Co Donegal. Love triumphed over the weather as Deirdre and Peter exchanged vows in a heartwarming ceremony at All Saints Catholic Church. The rain, which had started around 10 am, persisted throughout the day.

The Preparations

In Laghey, Peter and his best man Kenneth suited up in dashing grey Magee suits

Accompanied by her radiant bridesmaid, Deirdre arrived at the church, her hair intricately styled at Amanda’s Hair Studio. The rain may have dampened the pavements, but it couldn’t dampen Deirdre’s spirits as she stepped out of the car, a vision of elegance in her stunning white gown.

Mari-Clare McGarvey, a talented makeup artist known for her skillful brushwork, worked her magic on the bride and her bridesmaid. 

The Ceremony

Inside the All Saints Catholic Church, Fr Ciaran Harkin stood ready to oversee the marriage ceremony. His warm smile and reassuring presence lent an air of tranquillity to the proceedings, soothing any nerves that might have lingered in the bride and groom. 

After the couple exchanged rings and vows, they made their way down the aisle where they were congratulated by friends and family. 

The Wedding Reception

Following the ceremony, the celebration continued at the Red Door restaurant in Fahan. Stepping into the venue, guests were transported into a world of cinematic charm. The room had been meticulously adorned with elements reminiscent of classic movies, setting the stage for an evening that would be nothing short of memorable.

The speeches that followed were heartwarming and filled with laughter and a few tears. 

The Evening Entertainment

But the night was far from over. The Fallen Empire band took the stage, their melodies infusing the air with a vibrant energy that swept through the room. 

The rain outside seemed to fade into the background as the newlyweds took to the floor. Rock and Roll kids was the song chosen for their first dance.

The dance floor came alive as guests, their spirits undampened by the rain, twirled and swayed to the rhythm of the music.
