Wait till you here this wonderful fact, This is St Marks Church, Newtownards
100 years ago at the time of the 1st World War this couple got married there.
In the words of my bride Mel "My Granda and Granny Maxwell , Charlie and Georgina , on their wedding day ."
This is a photo of St Marks Church this year, 100 years on, with the flowers by Marie Cafolla to decorate the church for a very special wedding.
The bride Mel gets married in the same Church as her granny and granddad to her new husband.
It's a lovely live story, this couple worked together for years helping patients with cancer. Once they retired they realised how much they missed each other and love blossomed. Thankfully Mel asked me to make her wedding dress which was a pleasure and delight.
It was a chiffon dress with a Nottingham lace over layer lace bodice. The lace was a vintage lace I purchased from a man called Mr Arthur Beesley who had his lace factory in Nottingham 25 yrs ago.
I was able to dye the lace to be the exact colour that Mel wanted.
A sparkly belt and buttons completed the look. Thanks to everyone it was a perfect day.
