Robyn and Darren first met when they were 12 outside their local Centra, after being set up by friends (who were keenly watching to see if sparks were flying!). Too shy to say anything, both went their separate ways. It was 15 years later when they met again and this time had a lot more to say to each other.
Robyn and Darren’s Summer Festival wedding at Station House started with a super chill morning. Robyn and the girls had a lovely relaxing time with an afternoon tea! The bridesmaids drank tea and enjoyed some mini scones while Robyn had her make up done in the room next to them, a nice moment of chill for the always on the go bride. Darren tells us that she’s always multitasking and doing 20 things at once! The lads arrived on time, dressed and ready to go. No stress for this chilled couple!
They were blessed with the weather for their outdoor ceremony at the Station House. Surrounded by loved ones, nature and under a beautiful handmade arch (made by maid of honor, Holly) they said ‘I Do’. The perfect intimate ceremony for this family wedding at the Station House. As they said themselves, “we’re excited to just celebrate our love together as a family, including Heidi. Everything else is just a bonus”.
After a quick meet and greet with guests, we headed off to do some pictures with their adorable daughter, Heidi. Who even though Robyn ensured she had her comfy vans for walking, expected her Dad to carry her through the woods. Meanwhile the guests enjoyed a music filled drinks reception with a brass band. One of four music groups playing on the day. As avid festival goers, they wanted it to feel like a mini festival for the guests.
We continued with our couple shots under the green trees and by an archway with beautiful soft light. There was no need for posing instructions with these two, who were smiling and laughing away in each other’s arms. As Darren put it, “We have so many ridiculous jokes that make no sense but as long as we’re both laughing, who cares? I plan to keep her laughing and smiling for the rest of our lives, just as I know she will for me”.
With the couple shots done, it was time for a quick drink before the speeches at their Festival wedding at Station House. Keeping with the chilled atmosphere of the day, the speeches were super informal. With all the guests gathered around outside the house with a drink.
It’s unusual to have the first dance outside, especially in our Irish weather! So Robyn and Darren were lucky to get to use the turntable area for theirs. There was magic in the air as the guests held sparklers and the trees lit up with fairy lights. The perfect atmosphere for this Summer Festival wedding at Station House. As Dave Russell, their celebrant said in the ceremony, they sing a song only the other can hear.
