St Mullin’s Wedding Photographer – Helen & Seun

Helen & Seun met in College in 2005. Like most Irish love stories, were friends for a few years first.  After they both left college and after a year they got together and fell in love. St Mullin’s Wedding Photographer

Their friend Alan who introduced them lives in Kildare and they decided to visit him for a night, along with some friends. They had picked out the ring 3 months pervious and Seun kept saying Helen wouldn’t expect it when it did happen. Helen was worn out getting her nails done but that weekend she hadn’t bothered. They got up there and a few drinks later Seun asked Helen to go into the sitting room to take a photo with him. He closed the door behind them and as Helen was fixing her hair with the camera on Seun was down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.  

The lads knew what was happening and when they heard the yes Brian turned on the television which had the song here comes the bride playing. They went out on the town in Kildare and celebrated. The band that played in the pub that night, Entourage, they ended up booking them for the wedding (Seun’s idea) which turned out to be the best decision they made (besides booking me obv). St Mullin’s Wedding Photographer

As it was an intercultural wedding the cultures blended very well. Both cultures like to eat, drink and dance. They had both African and Irish food and music on the day.  “To sum up we would say it was amazing, colourful, magical and so much fun. One of the big things for Seun and I was that we had a good day and blended the two cultures. We also didn’t want to become consumed about that one day and didn’t lose focus that we were becoming husband and wife on the day. It was really special when we exchanged vows along with when just the two of us were getting our couple photos done and travelling in the car up to the hotel together.” St Mullin’s Wedding Photographer

Helen’s advice is pretty solid “Even if it is two years away organise what you can even if you think it’s too early to do it. For example paying off the suppliers in instalments, ordering gifts for people, ceremony booklet and baskets for bathrooms. Just so the week of the wedding you don’t have a huge amount to do. We trusted our suppliers and to be honest made very little contact with them until two weeks before unless making a payment.”

“The last thing is to enjoy the day it goes so quick and try get 5 minutes alone together.  Remember nobody notices half the details that go into the day (who even looks at the ceremony booklet?). It’s not that people don’t care, they are just so happy to be a part of your special day and it’s your family and friends that make the day. We just knew from any wedding we were at we only ever spoke about the food and music.” St Mullin’s Wedding Photographer
