Just Married: Kerrie Bell and Robert Macauley
Happy day for best friends who found love
Kerrie Bell and Robert Macauley from Ballynahinch are enjoying married life following their sun-filled wedding day last month. Civil servant Kerrie (27) and Robert (32), an air conditioning engineer met back in 2011 through friends.
"We were friends before we got together," Kerrie said.
The couple became engaged at the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast in July 2012.
"He had the ring and played our favourite Paolo Nutini song, Candy," Kerrie explained. "There were roses all over the bed and champagne and chocolates."
Kerrie and Robert were married on June 6 at the Clandeboye Lodge Hotel in Bangor.
"We had a brilliant day," Kerrie said.
"It was amazing.
"I walked up the aisle to Wonderwall by Oasis – Robert is a big Oasis fan. And our first dance was to the same song as the proposal.
"The weather was great and everything ran so smoothly."
A honeymoon followed in Mexico for the pair.
"We spent the next day with friends at Cutters Wharf and stayed in Belfast that night before we flew to Gatwick and then on to Cancun on the Monday morning," Kerrie said. "It was out of this world.
"We returned home from honeymoon to a new nephew. Robert's sister Joanne had a baby boy, Dylan."
The new Mr and Mrs Macauley would like to thank their friends and family for helping to make their big day so special.
"Thanks for making the day what it was," Kerrie said.
"And a special thanks to our photographer. We had our photographs done at Helen's Bay beach and Crawfordsburn Country Park. They are lovely to look back on."
