The wedding of Miss Bernadette Blee and Mr Thomas O’Neill, affectionately known as Bernie and Tam, took place at 1.00pm on June 6th 2015 at St Patrick’s Church, Dunamanagh.Bernie is one of eleven children, the daughter of Mr and Mrs Seamus Blee. She was attended by her three sisters and niece with Tam’s brother having the honour of best man. Bernie’s Mum and Dad proudly walked the beautiful bride down the aisle and handed her over to Tam awaiting patiently at the altar.
A few happy tears were shed amongst all the joyful smiles. Two of Bernie’s friends; Lisa and Aine, sang during the beautiful ceremony and her friend and colleague sang Eve Cassidy’s Song Bird as Bernie and Tam signed the register.
Some wonderful photographs were taken outside the church and at a local place of beauty known as Moor Lough.
The wedding party and their 300 hundred guests then moved on to the Fir Trees Hotel in Strabane where a wonderful reception was held, but not before Bernie stopped off at Melmount Manor Care Home to pay a surprise visit to the Foyle Unit where she works as a Care Assistant, to the delight of the residents Bernie cares for. They are still talking about how beautiful she looked.
