When you walk into a bride’s house on the morning of a wedding and she greets you looking like a classic movie star who has just stepped off the red carpet, you know you’re in for a beautiful wedding. Everything about this day was elegant, understated and gorgeous – just like Fionnuala herself. From the simple Spring tones to discreet floral arrangements and the stunning venue of Dunboyne Castle, this was a wedding fit for Hollywood royalty.

Fionnuala & John were one of our favourite types of couple to work with: relaxed, laid back and up for some fun! Pretend to kiss? Sure! Climb on a piano? Why not!?

They just wanted everyone to have a good time and to really enjoy the day themselves, with no fuss or worrying about the little things. They had champagne, family, friends and each other – and that’s how they liked it!

Stunning Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa, Co Meath provided the perfect backdrop for their reception and a gorgeous location for their photographs. The newlyweds even had time for a quick cuddle and sneaky first dance in their empty but sparkling ballroom before the festivities kicked off (which we were there to capture of course!).
