Thank you all so much for your support regarding yesterdays post, I really was quite taken aback at the lovely comments, the emails and the messages. If you took the time to comment or share, it really does mean a lot, I really am very grateful.

Sometimes, it is all about the dress. The lovely people at Elizabeth Stuart submitted this beautiful bride to me. I had to say yes, the dress is just stunning. I would love to feature more Irish weddings so if you have any please do submit!

My dress was designed by Elizabeth Stuart and supplied by Rachel at The White Gallery. I ordered some extra lace to customize the sleeves!

Bride’s hair accessories/veil: My veil was supplied by The White Gallery & I made a hair piece for the evening with leftover lace from my dress

I made the table settings and the table plan with the help of my bridesmaids. Each table was named after a place myself & Nigel have been on holidays. I designed the invitations and they were printed by Cityprint.

I’m so lucky that one of my best friends did both my hair & make-up, her salon is called ‘Carolina’s Hair & Make-up’.

I had a cake table with a cream & blush theme – my friend’s mother Jane made my cakes (fruit cake, madeira, lemon & chocolate marble cake), my bridesmaid Katie made cake pops, a friend ‘Claire the baker’ made some mini tiered cakes & a friend’s mother Valerie made some mini meringues. I also got some macaroons from Marks & Spencer!

We had Chinese lanterns for our guests to set off on the beach during our first dance, we also had cake boxes & sweetie bags for guests to take home.
