There’s a whole new generation of DIY brides popping up in Ireland these days, but I have particular admiration for today’s beauty Danielle, captured by Sarah Fyffe Photography! She singlehandedly created all the lovely blooms you see below, and knowing first hand how much work goes into getting flowers ready for a wedding, this is no mean feat! And yes…before you ask, that is the highly coveted Scarlet Dress by Monique Lhuillier! I think I might have let out a little squeal when it appeared in my inbox!
Danielle lets us in on how the big day came to be!
Ciaran is a massive man united fan. So as a gift for Christmas 2009 I booked for us to go over to a game for feb 2010, I didn’t know he always wanted to propose in old Trafford so when I give him his Christmas gift he set about making his plans to propose.
I can hear men everywhere agreeing it doesn’t get much better than that! Choosing such ‘hallowed ground’ to pop the most important question of your life! And it’s only fitting that Man United won 6-0 that day, a good omen surely Ciaran!
We arrived a bit early for the game so I said lets head on in and see the stadium, it was empty as no one had taken their seats yet, so we took our seats and sat admiring the view, I turned round to look at Ciaran and he had the box open in his hand, it was a lovely shock.
Such an elegant group of ladies! The mint green bridesmaid dresses suit Danielle’s soft lace perfectly and took them from the contemporary church setting to the beautiful Corick House in Co. Tyrone.
The bouquets really are just gorgeous. Danielle had dreamed for years of how her flowers would look on her wedding day, and couldn’t have been more happy with the way they turned out.
I love flowers and choose to do my own, I kept everything green and white/cream, with a hint of pink in the bouquets only. I feel green and white will compliment any background or setting they are set in. Yes it was stressful but looking back I wouldn’t have changed a thing, I did it for me and me only, my flowers were what id always wanted and when I walked up the aisle and seen the chapel decorated the way I’d imagined for years it just made me glow inside and of course seeing my handsome husband to be waiting on me.
Monique Lhulliher and Jimmy Choos…a girl after my own heart! The dress was one of the key decisions Danielle made along the way.
I choose a dress I was going to be very comfortable in and didn’t annoy me when I was dancing as all I wanted to do was have the best day possible.
Sarah did such a beautiful job of capturing all the elegance and love throughout their big day. There’s no better recommendation than when a couple wants to work with you all over again after the wedding is over!
I had seen so much of Sarah Fyffes work and just knew our wedding would not be complete without her, I wanted someone who would not only take fantastic pictures, but also add to our day. And she did, she made us laugh took us to fantastic locations, and made us feel so at ease. We can’t wait to have her again maybe for another occasions!.
Wishing you both many years of happiness ahead, filled with wonderful events for Sarah to capture! Thank you Danielle and Ciaran for sharing your beautiful day with us. And massive thanks to Sarah Fyffe, always a pleasure to feature your gorgeous work. Be sure to pop on over to her blog if you’d like to see more!
