Laura and William’s main objective from their wedding was to have a relaxed, informal day – and that is exactly what they did! Due to the time of year, and location of the ceremony in Belfast City Hall, the couple reserved tables in the beer tent at Belfast Christmas Market for drinks immediately following the ceremony. “Everyone received a token for a free drink and it gave all of our guests a chance to mingle,” says Laura. “After the Christmas Market, we moved onto the Empire Music Hall, Belfast. The venue was ideal for our wedding and had lots of character without us having to decorate it.”
The couple opted for a simple, intimate, and wintery theme. Laura says, “It was perfect as we had a strict budget and it was Christmas, so all of our venues were already decorated for us! I love winter, but didn’t want to be predictable, so we chose colours in pink, grey and white tones. I wanted the day to reflect our personalities, as well as our love for music, food, family and friends, brought together with lots of personal touches.” Event Planners NI decorated the tables in the Empire with pink, grey and white candles, while Laura made the centrepieces by filling large candle holders with foliage and fairy lights. The favours were homemade blackberry jam and apple chutney prepared by Laura herself!
