David and Elaine Tosh, from Portadown, are enjoying family life with little daughter Eilidh following their elegant and relaxed wedding at the Old Crawfordsburn Inn.

Elaine (34), a system support worker, and David (33), an ecologist who is originally from Scotland, fell in love after meeting in Belfast in 2008.

“We met on a night out in Whites Tavern,” Elaine said. “We got chatting and then went on our first date the following week.

“Dave moved to Lancaster for 18 months, but we emailed, stayed in touch and travelled back and forth while he was working on his PhD.”

The couple became engaged in May 2011.

“We were chatting in the garden about Dave going to Indonesia for a few months for work,” Elaine said.

“The sun was shining and he proposed with a lovely vintage diamond ring.”

Elaine explained that their wedding day was “very relaxed and elegant” and that their beautiful 15-month-old daughter Eilidh was flower girl.

“We really enjoyed the day,” Elaine said.

“The staff at the Old Crawfordsburn Inn were amazing. Everything went without a hitch.

“We had a piper, Ian Burrows, play us in and out and the whole atmosphere was so relaxed.

“I didn’t go for a traditional wedding dress, I went for a cocktail-style dress and our first dance was to Etta James’s At Last.”

Following their big day the new Mr and Mrs Tosh headed to Krakow in Poland on honeymoon. “We had a lovely time,” Elaine said. She explained that life hasn’t changed too much for her and David, but they are settled into married life and enjoying it.

“I look back at our wedding day with a sense of nostalgia,” she said. “The sun was shining and our great bunch of family and friends from Ireland and Scotland celebrated with us.

“The day went so quickly. I would do it all over again if I could,” she added.

“Nothing has really changed for us, but being married is lovely. We are loving it.”
