When Matthew Holmes and Kate Wal­dron got mar­ried, they wanted the em­pha­sis to be on those close to them.

“Our wed­ding had a big fo­cus on fam­ily, tak­ing into ac­count that ev­ery­one goes their sep­a­rate ways at a cer­tain stage in life when ev­ery­one starts hav­ing their own fam­i­lies,” Kate said.

“My hus­band was very for­tu­nate to have all four of his grand­par­ents alive, present and well so this was very spe­cial for him.

“We also wanted to make sure that the fam­ily friends who have been there through­out our up­bring­ings were a spe­cial part of the day.”

In homage to this, Kate’s brides­maids were her sis­ter and two best friends, while Matthew’s in­cluded long-time friends and a brother.

“We also had my dearly beloved neph­ews Matthew and Tyler Kirk­man as ring bear­ers,” Kate said.

While the cer­e­mony was held at St Pa­trick’s Cathe­dral, the re­cep­tion at King­fish­ers Cafe al­lowed for a more ca­sual at­mos­phere with guests able to catch up and en­joy them­selves.

Be­fore be­com­ing en­gaged at Christ­mas-time last year, Matthew and Kate had been to­gether for four years, as well as be­ing close friends for some time be­fore­hand.
