A first kiss in Coppers after Christmas sealed the deal for my beautiful couple Michelle and Jonathan. A romantic proposal at Sorrento Park in Dalkey brought them to their romantic wedding at Kilkea Castle. Michelle is ultra organised and wow, when it came to the photos, I was blown away, smoke bombs, sparklers, veils and princess tiaras. I was thrilled to arrive into the entrance of Kilkea Castle to see our engagement shoot displayed which felt like we had done a million years ago before covid.
Michelle looked stunning in her Sharon Hoey dress which even had pockets and Jonny got his fab suit in Tangos with a touch of the Peaky Blinders about them. How amazing was the Baronial Hall where the two of them said their vows. So many candles…and natural foliage by Elderwoods Decor.
The sky was pretty grey but the colours on the driveway were to die for. We had even joked if we saw the leaf blower man we would make him blow them in front of them. But Michelle and Jonny escaped that… Sharon Hoey would have not been impressed anyway.
Michelle insisted we got a photo at the old Abbey near the gravestones. Well it was close to Halloween after all.
Then out in the gardens of Kilkea Castle, we had fun with confetti, helium balloons and VowArt our videographers gave us a masterclass on how to handle smoke bombs. Michelle’s sister Gemma being the true bridesmaid did not let go her smoke bomb even when it was burning her arm, true dedication for her sister!
Speeches were held near the fireplace before dinner. And Michelle put on her fab crown from the Beaded Gem and truly became the princess of her own romantic wedding at Kilkea Castle!
After the meal, time for some sparklers fun, with noone thinking of bringing a gas lighter with the wind it was impossible to light them. So instructions were to run inside the door light with a match and run out. We just about got it to work and our newleyweds ran through the tunnel of sparklers before a last photo outside the castle and a moment to walk back together and savour the day.
