The Dress

My costume was by Gemy Maalouf, from the Mirror Mirror bridal boutique. They seriously treatment. I was acquiring marriage ceremony dress procuring a tiny underwhelming until finally Mirror Mirror. Andrea so thoughtfully and enthusiastically searched by the racks with my mum and I.

Inside 5 minutes of conference her, I trustworthy her. She pushed me out of my convenience zone and with each other with my mum, persuaded me to consider on ‘the one’. I was doubtful about 1 factor of the dress and quickly, she had a resolution. Andrea is also a hair and make-up stylist, and she roughly pinned my hair into some designs she assumed would aid to showcase the costume.

Veil & Components

I wore an ivory, royal cathedral size, French silk veil made by Sophie of ‘Unveiled by Sophie’.

I wore cream Manolo Blahnik slingback pumps with a stiletto mid heel. They had been a wedding day present from my auntie and her spouse and children. Carrie Bradshaw produced me decide on them! 😊

My Maid of Honour shocked me with an appointment at Jo Malone to produce my individual fragrance. We had so substantially enjoyable. On the day, I wore a concoction of their Mimosa & Cardamom cologne, and Scarlet Poppy cologne extreme.

I wore Astrid & Miyu molten hoops in gold. They have a chunky curve to them that mirrored the form of the material on my skirt.

At fittings, Meb was so attentive – and patient! The dress experienced a long train, and she would not allow me go away until she was positive I was pleased (and at ease) transferring and going for walks. It wasn’t more than enough that it fitted perfectly, she required and necessary me to experience at ease much too. I have and will usually propose Mirror Mirror.

I usually understood that I desired something passionate and theatrical. My mum’s wedding ceremony dress had a very equivalent neckline and drapery aspects on the shoulders, which I like. I also like the actuality that no one particular expected me to dress in what I did.

Favourite Moments

For me, my favorite second was walking out of the church, remaining showered in confetti by loved ones and pals.

Alex’s favorite minute had been the welcome beverages reception on the terrace. It was these kinds of a beautiful working day. It’s an Irish marriage custom to put the Kid of Prague (a statue of an toddler Jesus) in the yard, the day before the wedding ceremony, to promise blue skies and sunshine. Alex’s cousin did just that, and it labored!


I started out adhering to Agnes Black many years prior to we became engaged and normally realized that, when the time came, I preferred her to photograph my marriage. Her pictures have an intimacy that is so enchanting. On the day, she produced Alex and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured our figures (and our guests’) so correctly.

She’s so detail-oriented (e.g., she tied a silk tie all over my bouquet so wonderfully), and assisted so substantially in protecting an proper speed for the day.

I would undoubtedly advise Agnes Black to other individuals!


Holly and Jack of Jensen Films have the experience of a property video clip, although also getting beautifully cinematic. We had in no way achieved them in advance of, but some of our attendees thought they ended up our friends videoing the working day: we developed these types of a rapport with them.

Alex cherished the personalized in shape to his go well with, the pink lining of his waistcoat and blazer, and his bow tie. His parents gifted him cufflinks that ended up engraved with both equally of our initials.


Maria of Maria’s Bouquets grows her personal flowers and foliage typically. Our setting up point was roses, and we understood we needed bouquets that have been vivid and complemented the Ned eco-friendly. We required a color palette of shades of crimson, pink, and peach, with environmentally friendly foliage.

Maria recommended (and we went for) a wide variety of diverse roses, in various shades, together with David Austin ‘Juliette’ for a pop of peach. Also, dahlias, sweet peas, and phlox (pretty frivolously spread involving for texture).

How They Satisfied

We met at college/sixth sort and sat upcoming to every single other in Artwork. 9 yrs right after, we grew to become engaged. Alex proposed at home. I was away and came residence a working day before than he was anticipating me again, so it was a surprise for both of us.

We ended up engaged for 2 yrs prior to our wedding working day. Fortunately, we did not have to postpone our marriage ceremony. COVID only meant we had to prepare for a additional intimate wedding.

We experimented with to keep anything in-trying to keep with the design and character of the location. The richness of the Ned’s colour schemes, and end result of aged and new (especially the artwork, where tapestries co-exist with up to date paintings) influenced a ‘modern classic’ fashion.

Night & Dancing

Our first dance keep track of was to Louis Armstrong, La Vie En Rose.

Words of Wedded Wisdom

Accept that some issues won’t go to strategy.

Try not to contain as well several voices when you’re organizing.

There are so lots of alternatives, suppliers, include-ons… to avoid feeling overwhelmed, we discovered it useful to set ourselves analysis time frames and limitations.

Smaller sized weddings are just as particular as significant weddings.
