Jason Bryan and Joe Westman began their love story six years ago. It just so happened they were in the right place at the right time, or so they recall. Jason, from Daingean, Co. Offaly is currently studying and Joe, a Tullamore native is a psychiatric nurse. The pair first set eyes on each other in their local town just over six years ago. 

After chatting, it wasn’t long before sparks were flying and they arranged to meet again for a date. They went to the cinema to see “Letters to Juliet” followed by a few drinks in a local pub and the rest is history! The pair are now living happily together in Kilcormac, Co. Offaly. One day while romantically strolling around the grotto on the grounds of Charleville Castle, Jason proposed to Joe and of course, he said yes! After five years a date was set and the stunning Annebrook House Hotel in Mullingar was the chosen venue.The wedding was coordinated by the Annebrook House Hotel’s in house wedding coordinator Amy Cross.

WEDDING DETAILS 
Joe and Jason shopped locally for their wedding outfits and wore suits from Galvin’s in Tullamore on the day. The groom’s ladie’s dresses were bought in Menarys and My Fair Lady in Tullamore. 

Surrounded by friends and family, their ceremony was full of love and officiated by Romy McAuley. “Romy made us feel at ease from the very beginning. She was able to make the ceremony fun and enjoyable but at the same time, highlighted the important bits and always emphasised that it was about love.” Their chosen flowers were miss piggy rose (coral) and navy orchids supplied by Aoife from Sheefin Flowers. 

The wedding cake was made by Orla from Kildare Treats and the invites were sourced from Partyloons. Joe and Jason organised entertainment that would keep the floor full. “During the ceremony we had a very talented local young lady named Kerrie Penrose who was accompanied by Jacqui O’Meara. The band for the afters was “The Secrets” from Clara, Co. Offaly. They were fabulous and everyone loved them. Every single song they played had people on the floor dancing and they knew how to keep the crowd going. They also provided the DJ."

The couple chose the song “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz for their first dance. “We chose this song as we felt the words of the song say so much.” Jason and Joe’s wedding guests were in for a very special treat. “For our wedding favours we got Yankee Candles with our names and date of wedding on them.” Also, the unity candle for the had their family crests on them.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH DMC PHOTOGRAPHY? 
“David, our photographer was a pleasure to work with and was so professional on the day. He allowed us to meet him when suited us and was also available through social media. David offered a personal service and allowed us to feel at ease throughout the day. He worked with us both on and off site for photos. David’s experience provided us with the photos that we have received from the day and will provide us with a visual reminder of such an important time in our lives.” www.dmcphotography.ie
