Just Married: Jemma and Mark Kettyle
Couple settling in to 'part-time' wedded bliss
Jemma and Mark Kettyle from Drumbeg are back home from their honeymoon and enjoying married life following their relaxed Spring wedding.
Midwife Jemma (28) and Mark (29), a quantity surveyor, met nine years ago through friends, fell in love, and then got engaged at Christmas 2012.
"I lived up the road from him and came to his house. He had candles laid out that said: 'Will you marry me?' Jemma explained.
She, of course, said 'yes' and the couple were married on February 7 at St Patrick's Church in Drumbeg.
"It was a lovely, very personal service," Jemma explained.
"It is quite a small church so everyone was very cosy and it was so nice and laid back.
"My granny – Margaret Horan (80) – was my flower girl."
A wedding reception followed for 150 guests at the Galgorm Hotel.
The newlyweds' first dance was I'll Be There by Boyce Avenue.
"We had a great day," Jemma said.
"It was so much fun. Everybody had a laugh and enjoyed it."
The new Mrs and Mrs Kettyle headed to the Maldives on honeymoon and also spent a few days in Dubai on the way home.
"We had a lovely, relaxing time," Jemma said.
"We needed it after the wedding."
Married life is going well for the couple.
"I work up in Enniskillen so it's part-time married life, but we are getting settled in and learning each other's habits," Jemma said.
Jemma and Mark would like to thank their family and friends for helping make their wedding day so special.
"Thanks to our parents for supporting us." Jemma added.
"We had such a good day."
