Big-hearted firms make Willie Turner's big day all so extra-special

By Stephanie Bell

The generous local companies which made yesterday's wedding possible include Brownlow House in Lurgan, where the reception was hosted and its staff worked free; The Meat Cleaver, which provided the meat, and JMAC, which supplied chips and potatoes for the meal.

Champagne to toast the happy couple was provided by United Wine Merchants, and wine was donated by McConville's Bar, Portadown.

Orchard Studio went all-out to support the couple by supplying a wedding planner, the bride's dress, bridesmaid's dress, wedding cake, room decorations, bridal bouquet, bridesmaid's flowers, the men's buttonholes, table centres and chair covers.

Men's suits for the big day were courtesy of Statements Menswear, and wedding cars were provided by James Barton of Prestige Wedding cars, and an Aston Martin DBS for the groom by Mark Taylor.

Beautiful hand-painted wedding stationery was provided by Daniel Parsons of Paperbark Event Stationery, and a wedding video was filmed by Barry Porter, while photography was provided by Cindy Robinson Stanfield.

The bride had her hair styled by Gemma Managh and make-up done by award-winning make-up artist Julia Clements.

Younger guests were well catered for with a photo booth by Christopher Campbell, popcorn provided by Pop 'n' Candy, face painting by Twinkle and Twist, a candy cart by Looky Looky and a chocolate fountain by Fairytale Fountains.

Wedding favours were given to each guest courtesy of Adrienne Sibbett of Addie's Homemade Fudge, harpists for the ceremony were provided by Anne McAlinden, and flowers for the venue by The Posy Barn. The bridal party and guests danced after dinner to sounds from U105 DJ Paul McKenna and then enjoyed live music by top wedding band Freefall.
