This Is The Day Your Life Will Surely Change

This is the second of the Wedding posts. These photos are from the actual Wedding day and they're only the ones taken by Donnacha and I. Donnacha was filming the ceremony and the speeches at the reception so I have to get photos from other people of the actual ceremony itself and the reception and afters. But this should give you quite a good taste of the day itself.

I absolutely loved my petticoat from the moment I tried it on in the shop. Everyone was touching it all night and saying how much they loved it with the black dress. I would wear it every day if I could!

The shoes! I was looking for shoes for a while, something pink or red and as soon as I saw these on the Irregular choice website I fell in love.

Weren't the bouquets gorgeous colours?

The tables for the reception were named after fictional towns. Can you guess what films/TV shows they're all from?

The dessert buffet consisted of white and dark choclate mousse, pavlova, ricotta and chocolate cheesecake, creme bruleé, homemade vanilla ice-cream and chocolate covered fruits. It was incredible and definitely most peoples favourite course.

It's taken me ages to actually finish editing the photos because there was probably over a thousand altogether. I'll show you the ones of the ceremony and reception soon. And then there's the touristy Rome photos. Don't worry I'll be done with all of them soon enough!

In case anyone was wondering my dress was custom made by Dig for Victory on Etsy. I cannot recommend Eleanor and Holly highly enough. They were so helpful and quick to respond to all my questions about the dress and when I asked could they add sleeves they were only too happy to accommodate me. I will definitely be buying another dress from them for any other occasions I have to go to. I felt so comfortable in the dress, it fit like a dream and it was exactly what I wanted from the moment I knew I would be Kate's Maid of Honour. The petticoat is from Retro here in Dublin and the shoes are called Burlesque Beauty from Irregular Choice

My make up was pretty simple. I used a lot of the same products on myself and Kate. I will be doing a tutorial video on the wedding make up very soon so I'll go into more detail about what products I used and why in the video. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos, let me know what you think!

I also hope you're having a great December so far and enjoying the build up to the holidays (and that it's not snowing/stormy where you live). Keep safe and warm!

    Is is proper for me to shed tears of joy over people I never met? In a blogosphere filled with angry ranting it warms my heart to read about good things happening to good people. Your dress was perfect and these wonderful pictures show you looking relaxed and happy wearing it. The petticoat is stunning and completes the look perfectly. That photo of you on the bench eyeing the bouquet with the petticoat exposed is one of the best of the bunch but there are many more. The one directly above the closeup of the bouquet in which the happy couple is leaning on the balcony framed by rustic architecture and pergola is another super image. It's great to see your brothers and mom. I'm curious as to why you spelled it "mom" in this post and "mam" in every other. Whatever the reason you have a lovely family and I very much enjoyed your pictures of this happy occasion.

  6. Oh, Emma, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed seeing your pictures this morning! Everything was so beautiful and you have such a special family. I enjoyed "meeting" them all on here! Kate's makeup was perfect and natural looking. Can't wait to see your tutorial on how you did it and what you used. Most everythihg in my closet is black. Your black dress was so perfect and I want to look up the designer on etsy. I have run out of adjectives here :-) but that stunning petticoat was made for this dress! I used to love to wear petticoats when I was a young girl. You sure have a flair for design and a appreciation for all things beautiful! I could go on and on, thank you so much for sharing the photos from this special day. I can also appreciate all the time and work involved in editing the photos. Take care and enjoy your weekend ♥
