The marriage of Amy Adair and Thomas McCourt
Amy Adair and Thomas McCourt from Newtownabbey are home from honeymoon in Thailand and enjoying married life. Marketing executive Amy (29) and Thomas (31), a civil servant, met a decade ago when they both worked for River Island and have been a couple for eight-and-a-half years.
They became engaged on April 3, 2012.
"April 3 is my birthday and I also lost my daddy on April 3 when I was 10, so Thomas wanted to create a happy memory for me on that date," Amy said.
"We went to Galgorm and he had created a photo book for me of all my friends and family. The last photograph space was for the day we got engaged. It was lovely."
The couple were married on April 19 at Saint Patrick's Church of Ireland in Jordanstown.
Amy said the service was "beautiful and very light-hearted".
"It was really lovely," she added.
"The sun was shining, everything was perfect. We had really good fun."
A reception followed at the Four Seasons suite at the Galgorm in Ballymena.
The couple's first dance was to Ray Lamontagne song You Are The Best Thing.
The newlyweds thoroughly enjoyed their special day and would like to thank their friends and family for celebrating with them.
"It was just amazing," Amy said.
"The speeches were excellent, really funny.
"Our group of friends are all mad dancers, we were on the dancefloor all night."
Amy and Thomas have just returned home after "three amazing weeks" in Thailand.
"We had such a good time," Amy said.
"Thailand is amazing. We got to see quite a lot of it."
Married life is going well. It's good," Amy said. "It doesn't seem much different, but it's great.
"It's really, really nice," she added.
