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!

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’.
We kept it simple with mainly cream & blush piano roses & hydrangeas, & a floral backdrop of hanging roses behind our cake, supplied by Quiggs Florist, Derry.
Our marriage was in Drung chapel followed by reception at The Beach House, Co Donegal, Ireland
The groom wore a blue suit & tan shoes from Reiss
Maybe clichéd but loved it all!
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 spent a few days in Las Vegas & then drove along the coast of California.
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.
