A Destination Wedding in Northern Ireland

Rebecca and Thomas were married in Northern Ireland.

When Rebecca and Thomas recently were married in Thomas' native Northern Ireland, it was a destination wedding for Rebecca's family (from the US) and what a lovely place for a wedding.  The destination wedding theme was carried out from the invitation (a Northern Ireland "passport" and plane ticket) to the globe that was signed by the wedding guests to the compass received as a favor for the guests at the reception dinner.

The clever invitation to the wedding established a destination wedding "theme".

Instead of signing a guest book, wedding guests signed this globe.

The compass was the favor for each wedding guest.  

The venue, Parkanaur Manor, could not have been more lovely.

Because it was a wee bit windy, the ceremony was held indoors.

I thought many of the guests would be wearing fascinators, but I learned that fascinators are usually worn when the wedding is in a church.  At least one guest did wear a beautiful fascinator though.

It really was a beautiful wedding and fun reception.  I enjoyed it very much.  The reception will be covered in my next blog.  Stay tuned.
