The new Mr and Mrs O'Connor..

Happy Friday y'alllll.
Feels like every single time I come on here to do a post all I say is how long it has been since my last one, honestly I am a disaster at the minute- I never have a spare minute thats mainly why. Anyway, this time three weeks ago (wow!) we were all preparing for my beautiful big sister and soon to be brother in laws wedding day. We were tanned, groomed, plucked, waxed and hair scrubbed to an inch of our lives, sure just the usual week for me anyway heh? haha. 

After a family Chinese and a few cocktails we were all ready to go, we all stayed in our home house the night before the wedding, so we were all waiting patiently for Ciara to give us all our matching PJs so we could get changed into them- I mean we all knew we were going to get them haha. Our amazing daddy turned his back room (his man cave) into the wedding room before the big day, so we weren't getting ready in the kitchen or someones bedroom. It was amazing, painted all white with loads of mirrors and a station for both hair and make up, it was the icing on the cake for the big day! But we didn't expect what she had for us set up in the room, it was on lock down the whole day until we were allowed in, honestly our house is like 5 big kids half the time! 

When we went in, I honestly expected a pair of PJS and a dressing gown, but nope. Look at what the wee skitter had for us all, everything was so personalised and so well thought of right down to the bags. 
We all got matching PJS, slippers and the most beautiful Cath Kidston dressing gowns. We all got a bottle of our favourite perfumes, with the strongest deoderant with it too (I mean it was 20 degrees and our dresses were skin tight haha) our earrings and bracelet, a little bridesmaid clutch bag to keep our bits and bobs in after we set our flowers down, the cutest pocket mirror, and our lip sticks so we all had one the day of the wedding (we chose Liner in shade Whirl, Lipstick in Honey Love and then a little Clarins gloss over the top.) and then finished off with our own personalised cards that of course we all sat and cried for about an hour over, if I think of it enough I would cry now so lets change subject! 

Our make up artists was one of my favourites, the insanely talented Haley Mclean. The loveliest most down to earth girl who does exactly what you ask of her. Nothing is too much trouble and she knows each client spot on and what suits them exactly. 
Of course our hairdresser was the famous Benny from Benny @ Mcgills in Ballycastle, we wouldn't have dreamt about going anywhere else. He always delivers exactly what you want and more, Ciara's hair looked fab and he didn't leave until he was 100% with us all and how it looked, fixing us as we were putting our dresses on! Service level 100000 haha. The craic with these pair on the morning was fab and Ciara was so happy she picked them to be part of hers and Rory's big day!

I have had SO many questions about where the reception was held, it is 100% a little hidden gem. For those who maybe don't know its called Kilmore Country House Hotel, Glenariffe. Every single thing was perfect, the staff were amazing and it was planned to perfection from them. Not to mention the STUNNING views, and what a day we got for it!

I can't believe it is all over and done with, them pair are already home from Santorini and all the planning prepping and hen parties are all over and done with... well until this time next week when we do it all over again for our bestie Margie! 
Their wedding is in Drenagh House, Limavady so it will be just as stunning, the grounds in that place are amazing! 

What am I going to do when its all over and I have no more weddings or hen parties to help with? Sure like Rory said in his speech, we can become party planners if it doesn't work out.. Anyone need a party planner?! Nope? Ok all good.. Holiday timeeeee haha!

Thanks for reading, as always
