Maureen & Tom's Real Wedding

Tom and Maureen met when they were both students at Harpers Adams University in Shropshire. The couple were together for nine years before Tom proposed whilst on holiday in France. They tied the knot 10 months later in an intimate church ceremony, followed by a stylish silver, grey and black themed reception in a castle for 180 guests.

Tom & Maureen-The Newlyweds

Tom and Maureen had been a couple for almost a decade when Tom popped the question whilst they were on holiday at a family member’s villa in the south of France. The thoughtful groom-to-be had the engagement ring custom made, and had arranged for it to include the diamond from Maureen’s mother’s engagement ring, as she had sadly passed away five years before. It was a touching way to keep Maureen’s mother close to her during this important time in her life. The couple spent 10 months in engaged bliss, before getting married and celebrating at the stunning Ballyseede Castle Hotel in Kerry, with 180 guests. There wasn’t a specific theme to their wedding, but Maureen and Tom opted to have a sophisticated and elegant colour scheme of slate grey, silver and black.
