The Dress

My costume was by Gemy Maalouf, from the Mirror Mirror bridal boutique. They truly treatment. I was getting marriage ceremony dress browsing a little underwhelming till Mirror Mirror. Andrea so thoughtfully and enthusiastically searched via the racks with my mum and I.

Inside of 5 minutes of meeting her, I reliable her. She pushed me out of my comfort and ease zone and with each other with my mum, persuaded me to try out on ‘the one’. I was doubtful about 1 component of the dress and quickly, she experienced a alternative. Andrea is also a hair and make-up stylist, and she roughly pinned my hair into some variations she believed would enable to showcase the costume.

Veil & Extras

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

I wore product Manolo Blahnik slingback pumps with a stiletto mid heel. They have been a wedding gift from my auntie and her family members. Carrie Bradshaw designed me opt for them! 😊

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

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

At fittings, Meb was so attentive – and affected person! The costume had a long teach, and she wouldn’t let me go away until finally she was guaranteed I was delighted (and at simplicity) going and going for walks. It was not more than enough that it fitted perfectly, she wished and wanted me to truly feel cozy much too. I have and will normally advocate Mirror Mirror.

I usually knew that I preferred some thing passionate and theatrical. My mum’s wedding day dress had a extremely equivalent neckline and material particulars on the shoulders, which I appreciate. I also love the fact that no just one predicted me to don what I did.

Favorite Moments

For me, my favorite instant was going for walks out of the church, remaining showered in confetti by family members and good friends.

Alex’s favourite instant had been the welcome drinks reception on the terrace. It was these types of a stunning day. It’s an Irish marriage custom to put the Youngster of Prague (a statue of an infant Jesus) in the yard, the day before the wedding, to promise blue skies and sunshine. Alex’s cousin did just that, and it worked!


I started off subsequent Agnes Black yrs prior to we turned engaged and often knew that, when the time came, I desired her to photograph my wedding day. Her images have an intimacy that is so enchanting. On the day, she built Alex and I truly feel so at ease in entrance of the digicam and captured our characters (and our guests’) so properly.

She’s so element-orientated (e.g., she tied a silk tie all-around my bouquet so superbly), and aided so a lot in keeping an ideal pace for the day.

I would certainly propose Agnes Black to other individuals!


Holly and Jack of Jensen Films have the feel of a residence video, whilst also getting wonderfully cinematic. We experienced never ever satisfied them prior to, but some of our company thought they had been our pals videoing the day: we crafted this kind of a rapport with them.

Alex loved the tailor-made suit to his suit, the pink lining of his waistcoat and blazer, and his bow tie. His moms and dads gifted him cufflinks that had been engraved with both of those of our initials.


Maria of Maria’s Flowers grows her possess bouquets and foliage primarily. Our beginning issue was roses, and we realized we needed bouquets that have been lively and complemented the Ned inexperienced. We required a colour palette of shades of purple, pink, and peach, with green foliage.

Maria prompt (and we went for) a assortment of unique roses, in different shades, including David Austin ‘Juliette’ for a pop of peach. Also, dahlias, sweet peas, and phlox (quite lightly spread concerning for texture).

How They Achieved

We met at university/sixth kind and sat up coming to every single other in Artwork. 9 decades right after, we became engaged. Alex proposed at property. I was absent and came home a day previously than he was expecting me back, so it was a surprise for both equally of us.

We were engaged for 2 yrs right before our marriage ceremony working day. Fortuitously, we didn’t have to postpone our marriage ceremony. COVID only intended we experienced to prepare for a a lot more personal wedding.

We tried to retain every thing in-keeping with the fashion and character of the location. The richness of the Ned’s colour strategies, and end result of outdated and new (especially the artwork, where by tapestries co-exist with modern day paintings) impressed a ‘modern classic’ fashion.

Night & Dancing

Our 1st dance monitor was to Louis Armstrong, La Vie En Rose.

Words and phrases of Wedded Knowledge

Settle for that some points won’t go to plan.

Attempt not to include as well lots of voices when you’re organizing.

There are so many selections, suppliers, add-ons… to stay away from sensation confused, we located it beneficial to established ourselves analysis time frames and boundaries.

Lesser weddings are just as specific as massive weddings.
