Apologies again for my lack of regular posting last week everyone! I’m back to my usual routine now and have the prettiest Irish wedding from Lisa O’Dwyer to kick off the weekend. I wouldn’t often start a post with a shot of the bride and bridesmaids, but I think the bright and cheery windmills perfectly sum up the fun and joy that infused Katie and Paul’s whole day!
I’ve mentioned my love of Lisa O’Dwyer’s use of film before, and you’ll see the tell tale signs of medium format film in quite a few of these soft and delicate photos. Case in point this stunning shot of Katie, doesn’t she make a beautiful bride? She let’s us in on how the wedding day came to be!
“We had been going out for 3 and a half years when Paul completely took me by surprise and got down on one knee at the beautiful Minnewater Lake in Bruges on NYE 2010.”
I’m completely smitten with her choice of bridesmaids dresses! The soft dusky pink and delicate ruffles are beautiful and suited them all perfectly!
Now there’s a man who looks delighted with life! Such a lovely moment to capture.
Take note couples of Ireland! One of the best accessories you should invest in on your wedding day is a few beautiful umbrellas. Katie and Paul certainly were well prepared, and the pretty selection really adds to the pictures!
Who would have thought windmills would bring so much fun, but there you go! I’m always so amazed by all these crafty Irish brides, and Lisa and the girls created this colourful selection with a bit of DIY the night before the wedding!
Katie and Paul were so delighted that they chose Lisa O’Dwyer to be their wedding photographer, and I can see why!
“When your wedding day is over, the photos will be so important to you (and video if you decide to document the day that way also). So make sure you pick a photographer & videographer that you feel will record the moments that are most important to you and who will capture the essence of your day. Lisa O’Dwyer did an amazing job for us with our photos.”
They decided on Mount Juliet for the rest of the celebrations, the perfect spot for the relaxed and elegant atmosphere they wanted for their guests.
“We just wanted all of our guests to have a great time, and for everyone to be relaxed and happy. The venue was very important to us, and once we visited Mount Juliet we knew straight away that it had the perfect balance of laid-back charm and attention to detail that we were looking for.”
It looks like you got all that and more! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness ahead, and thank you so much for allowing us to share in some of your beautiful day! And of course thanks to Lisa O’Dwyer for letting us enjoy more of your lovely work! There’s plenty to be seen over at her blog so make sure to head on over and take a peek! Have a great weekend everyone, see you back here on Monday!
