A classical music ensemble played wonderfully selected pieces throughout the service
Readings were presented by Clare Proctor and Marion Campbell.
Both the Bride and Groom's Mothers' lit candles representing two families uniting.
The Best Man was William McComiskey who was joined in the Groom's party by Rory, Mark and Ben.
The Bride's party were Chief Bridesmaid Chloe accompanied by Grace.
The service was light-hearted and humorous as both Bride and Groom nervously stumbled over the wording of vows and struggled to get one another's rings on. The many guests enjoyed the ceremony and the informal lightheartedness.
After kissing his new wife Mark and Nicola together lit a single candle symbolising two hearts and lives uniting as one.
When the signing of the marriage schedule was completed the wedding procession proceeded out into the foyer where congratulatory refreshments were provided by the La Mon Hotel.
