Debbie and Niall met in university in the city of Cork and got engaged on a romantic trip to the Christmas markets of Vienna last year. They married six months later on beautiful Bere Island off the coast of Cork, where Debbie spent her summers growing up. After the ceremony they went to the Kenmare Bay Hotel for their wedding reception. They went with a rustic theme because of the location- keeping flowers and decoration simple so as not to take away from the beautiful setting: lots of lace, hessian, twine and natural materials.
Planning an island wedding, is not without it’s perils, Debbie and Niall’s ceremony hinged on good weather enabling the ferry to cross. Thankfully it all came together on the day and the weather was fantastic.
Wouldn’t be wedding prep without the groomsmen messing around in their Morley’s Formal Hire suits.
Doesn’t Niall scrub up well in his Protocol Menswear suit?
Debbie got her dress in Memories Bridal Boutique, with a few alterations to the skirt it was the perfect dress for her big day.
I still think about these Rachel Simpson bridal shoes. I can’t get enough of them.
Just a sample of what Kenmare Flowers produced on the big day, plenty more were that came from.
As a Wedding Stationery Designer I just loved what The Depot did for the invites and RSVP. Very clever!
These bridesmaids dresses from Marks and Spencer are the perfect way to keep colour consistent but to change up the style of each dress.
