It only took less than a week for Aoife and Alan to start a romance together. They met on Valentines Day, and saw each on the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and since that Saturday, have been together ever since!
They chose the stunning Rathsallagh House wedding venue as they loved the homely feel and welcoming staff.
Aoife got ready in her parents fabulous house near Dundrum. We loved the wedding colours of sage and floral. Aoife’s mum had gone to a lot of trouble with lots of bunting in the back garden and decorations around the house.
Alan meanwhile was with the boys in Cabinteely and was organised enough to fit a pint in at the local Farmer Browns pub before heading to the picturesque Our Lady of the Wayside Church in Kilternan.
Aoife’s mum Ann loves flowers and is a talented flower arranger so we were blown away with all the floral decorations. And I hear that Ann’s floral arranging teacher did the romantic pastel bouquets for all the girls.
Katie Hughes music was fabulous in the church. Alan Golden from Golden Moments was also there on the day to video the event. As it was a fabulous sunny day, all the guests enjoyed a surprise ice cream and we managed to make sure they kept one back for our newleyweds to enjoy before heading on their way for the wedding at Rathsallagh House.
The guests enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine for the summer wedding at Rathsallagh House, playing jenga and connect four! While my lovely couple took a stroll around the gardens for some romantic photos together.
With a last minute aerial group shot of the guests at our Rathsallagh House Wedding Venue Wicklow, they headed in to hear speeches and enjoy dinner. The room looked stunning and it was lovely to see the family tradition of Aoife’s granny’s silver cake stand and great grandparents cake topper. With even the cake being made by a neighbour and family friend.
Speeches were enjoyed by all. And it was lovely to hear a little bit more about both of them. Alan is usually always late but he wasn’t for his wedding day! And with Aoife being a teacher, Alan said she just has to say his name in her teacher voice, to know he could be in trouble…
The two of them wanted a night time photo at the Rathsallagh Tree. So we headed out in the moonlight and they just took some night time air and I think enjoyed the stroll around the grounds. Before heading back to face the music, in a good way! provided by The Beat Boutique.
My defining moment when I met Aoife and Alan was when they told me they had never written a cheque before! And I realised wow, how time flies.
