Lucky in Love Castle Wedding and Abbey Ruins

When you are lucky enough to be involved in something this beautiful you don’t even take credit for it. You just let it be what it was and feel happy to have been there.

Michelle and Gordon’s wedding day was one of those perfect of wedding days. Intimate with wonderful loving family, great lively friends, beautiful couple fully in love.

We even managed to dodge the showers on the day as the sun came out as if perfectly ordered just in time for their ceremony in the abbey ruins lovingly officiated by the bride’s sister.

I will have a blog post coming with gorgeous photos but had to share this too!

Location and setting was Huntington Castle, Michelle’s hair was done by Doireann  and Makeup from Making Faces Salon in Gorey.

The juicy colorful flowers were from Lamber de Bie , the super fun surprise cake was Kelly Lou and I guess you could say I brought all of these talented people together for Michelle and Gordon!

Love love love this one!!

 

 

Extra Special Irish Castle Destination Wedding

In my initial call with Reilly and Brandt, it was apparent that they were deeply in love and very kind people. When asked about the feeling they wanted for their Irish destination wedding Brandt simply said, ” It has to be extra special’.  That meant the location, the setting, the feeling and every moment of the day for the two of them and their families and friends who all travelled to Ireland for the wedding.

Immediately I thought of Luttrellstown Castle and showed them. They loved it. We did look at a few other options to make sure we weren’t overlooking anything else that was extra special but no, Luttrellstown Castle was it for them.

Then we started looking at churches. A Catholic ceremony was important to them, but again, the whole experience had to be considered. We looked at a lot of beautiful church in the Dublin area and settled on the stunning Newman University Church in Dublin city centre.

It played out to be a gorgeous day for this beautiful couple as you will see below in the photos by David Frain.

Our other amazing suppliers on the day were Kate Rose Crean doing Reilly’s makeup, Joanna Kelly did her hair,  Flowers were by Fleur Weddings, and the striking cake was Emily’s Pantry.

I was very lucky to be involved with such a special couple, beautiful day and fabulous suppliers!

Irish Cathedral Wedding

There was nothing small and quaint about Patsy and Logan’s destination wedding to Ireland. This was a grand, I’d possibly even venture to say epic Irish Cathedral wedding.

The style was elegant with soft neutrals, blush and rose gold accents. The location was the perfect Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny. 

The guests all from America. A close-knit group of family and friends travelled together for the week full of events and touring.

It started a rainy day in May but that didn’t dampen any spirits and the guys started the day playing pool as the girls prepped and beautified.

This is how the day looked as seen by the super talented Simple Tapestry!

 

Hair was by Sinead McGoldrick and makeup by one of my faves, Dawn Ryan was on hand to make sure the ladies were flawless.

 

       

              

   

Lush full blooms of pale cream roses and super soft blush were everywhere as per Patsy’s instruction and the art of French Touch. 

         

       

Honouring the groom’s Scottish ancestry the couple had a bagpiper greet all of their guest’s arrival in epic form. He plays for entrance and exit on the day.

After the ” I Do’s ” and a few photos in the cathedral, guests were bused back to Mount Juliet for champagne, canapes and soft jazz to relax and celebrate in style.

                             

Pre-dinner signature cocktails and speeches on the stairs before going in for dinner and starting the party.

Decorated sponge cake and wheels of cheeses made up the sweet and savoury cake which was served to guests later in the evening during a break in the dancing.

One For the Guys

I was out suit shopping recently for a groom and came upon these feather bow ties.

LOVE them!

How cool and fun are they for a rustic or countryside wedding at a historic manor house or hunting lodge!

d

I saw them at Nordstroms in America but had a quick look and they can be bought online also.

Happy shopping!

Intimate Cliff Side Wedding

 An Intimate cliff side wedding was Kayleigh and Kurtis’ vision for their destination wedding to Ireland. She knew she wanted uninterrupted views out to see the sea and after considering may possible ceremony locations only one was good enough. It was a site on the Cliffs of Moher walking path. It ticked all of the boxes. Scenic, close to Doolin, epic scenery and their reception location of a pub nearby. 

 

Such a sweet couple, great family and friends, a memorable day with an Epic location!

Thanks to Tomasz Kornas for the photos, Deirdre at Body Treats made our bride even more beautiful, West Clare flowers and Vaughan’s Pub for the great craic!
