Armagh man James qualified as a commercial airplane pilot just days before he married his Dutch sweetheart Celine so instead of wedding nerves he was more concerned his debut flight went smoothly. Thankfully everything went according to plan and by the time their Mussenden Temple wedding came round, he had three flights under his cap!
The original wedding day plan was to land a microlight plane at Mussenden Temple pre ceremony and fly off as Mr & Mrs post ceremony, unfortunately the good folks at National Trust had some safety concerns which made travelling by air impossible.
Not to worry, guests still received the first class treatment – invites were in the format of boarding passes with booking information, time of departure, country code and co-ordinates so everyone could get on board with Anglo Dutch airways, so quirky! The order of service booklet converted into a passport which merged together ceremony highlights, the story of how they met, completed with pictures!
This clever theme carried forward immediately after their ceremony as guests enjoyed a exquisite picnic snack box taking in the cliff side scenery through the windows of Mussenden Temple. Their table plan at Beech Hill Country House Hotel was in the format of a world map with each table assigned various airport codes which appeared on the table as luggage tags, thankfully no one had to endure any security checks before entering!
