Inspiration

Step into the Moon Garden with us for Aoife and Bilgin's dreamy bohemian style wedding at Drenagh Estate in Northern Ireland. Their ceremony was full of the scent of wildflowers, birds sang as they said their 'I do's and Aoife wore the Grace loves Lace dress of dreams. I mean, could this wedding be any more romantic? Throw in a beautifully crafted flower crown and a sword for cutting the cake, and we've got ourselves all the inspiration we need.

Dreamy bohemian style wedding at Drenagh Estate in Northern Ireland.

"If we couldn't find something that we wanted, or couldn't afford it, then we didn't need it. This approach helped us to think about the important things we needed first. Everything else that came after was a bonus!"

DRESS

This is a stunning wedding don't get us wrong. But Aoife's backless Grace Loves Lace Dress may have stolen the show (upstaging a cake-cutting sword, that's big). The breathtaking lace detail, paired with the fact there isn't a zip or button in sight, meant style and comfort came hand-in-hand! After Aoife saw the dress on Instagram she knew it was the one. It perfectly encapsulated the relaxed bohemian style of their day at Drenagh Estate. And don't even get us started on that veil...

VENUE

The first thing Aoife and Bilgin found was their venue at Drenagh Estate, and the rest followed naturally. The magical Moon Garden was the backdrop to their ceremony, complete with a canopy, fairy lights and rustic brickwork. Following that they had their reception in the old Georgian House and marquee nestled in the gorgeous gardens. As if the moon garden wasn't enchanted enough, the couple shots in the forest are taking us to another world full of magical love!

Finding your dream venue first means you can plan the rest of your wedding with confidence.

"Relax and plan the important things early for peace of mind. Enjoy every second of the day as it goes fast, and don't stress! It doesn't have to be perfect. With the right person by your side, that's all that matters."
