So Armagh man James is now a fully qualified commercial airplane pilot just days before he married his Dutch sweetheart Celine and instead of wedding nerves he was more concerned with making sure his debut flight to Malaga went smoothly. Thankfully everything went according to plan and by the time their wedding day came he now had three flights under his cap!
The original wedding day plan was to land a microlight plane at Downhill Demense 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 complete with booking information featuring 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 was converted into a passport which merged together not only the ceremony highlights, but also the story of how they met, complete with pictures… very cool.
This very clever theme was carried forward immediately after their ceremony as guests were able to enjoy an exquisite picnic snack box whilst taking in the cliff side scenery through the windows of this historic landmark. The 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!
