Vickie and Darren told me they adore Rathsallagh. So It had to be a Rathsallagh House wedding for them!
Though I was told That Darren proposed with the words “Vik, you know the way they say it’s better late than never”. After 8 years together, Darren blew her away by proposing at one of their favourite spots, Torc Waterfall. Vickie thought he was coming down with something as it was quite mild and he was wearing his ski jacket and she couldn’t understand how he wasn’t boiling up. But he was determined to keep the ring safe in his pocket. Our last Rathsallagh House wedding of 2018. Vickie got ready on the stud farm in the Curragh, with dogs, horses and even sheep all around her.
Darren got ready nearby at Lawlors Hotel in Naas and was looking very smart in his black-tie suit. The lads went on to the church, St. Peter’s Church at Two Mile House in Naas. During the ceremony, it was an good sign for Vickie and Darren when a butterfly in the middle of winter landed on their priest. Vickie said they love butterflies and saw it as a good omen to the Rathsallagh House wedding. So thankfully, we captured that moment!
We chased the light before it disappeared and went outside for some wedding photos at Rathsallagh House. Who doesn’t love a Rathsallagh Tree moment. The two of them were so patient and stayed out in the cold and seemed to really embrace getting their photos taken. We really loved shooting them.
Back in the warmth of Rathsallagh, we shot some family photos and got ready for the speeches and meal. Vickie and Darren were amazing and came out in the cold wintry evening for a nighttime photo at the Rathsallagh tree. Then, in to warm up with first dance. Vickie had told me she was brutal at dancing, but it didn’t show in the photos. They both looked like a couple out of Strictly Come Dancing, easily a score of 10! A lovely couple and a lovely relaxed wedding day at Rathsallagh House.
