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.
The Groomsmen Peter, Andrew, Ruben, Stephen and Andrew with Eric
The Bridesmaids Abby, Laura and Aoife (and Maid of Honour-Me and Flower Girl- Emily-Faye)
Lisa and I
Simon the DJ (who you've probably seen here before)
My brothers Jordan and Jack and I
Me and my mom!
My parents with Justin and Julie (Justin performed the ceremony)
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!
