Inspiration

We don't get to feature many Ireland weddings but when we do they are always stunning. This Tinakilly House wedding, in particular, has it all. Fabulous fashion - check. (Hello, Chloe shoes and Houghton NYC wedding dress of dreams.) Stunning florals in delicious baby pink and raspberry shades - check. And dreamy portraits capturing all the love and fun by Louise Scott Photography - check. Now, are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin...

Inspiration & Styling

Effortless, hearty (food) and whimsical (comes from the dress) pretty much sums up the vibe of the day, with many stand out moments including getting ready with my best friends and Mum, it was so much fun. Matt and I having 15 minutes together before we entered the room for dinner was a very special time for us to breath and take in the incredible day we were experiencing together. The speeches....particularly the best man's Mr & Mrs game which was both embarrassing but a genius way of getting everyone in the room involved. Our first dance which was Lionel Ritchie's 'All Night Long' had to be the most epic way to start the party - topped by the confetti cannons to get everyone on the floor to join us.

Tinakilly House Wedding

Tinakilly Country House in Ireland was the beautiful setting for this Autumn wedding. With gorgeous gardens and woodlands making excellent backdrops for all the wedding portraits. The adorable Pavillion housed the wonderful reception and fabulous Mr & Mrs game which was doused in gorgeous florals, love and laughter. Not to mention an epic cheese tower wedding cake.

We can't part without mentioning Emma's AMAZING Houghton NYC tiered wedding dress. Seriously what a beauty. And the way Louise Scott captures it billowing in the wind as she walks through the forest with her new husband gives me goosebumps.
