The day started at Ailbhe’s parents’ beautiful house in Carlow for the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready. We saw this bright orange maple tree in their garden and asked the bride if she would like us to capture her dress in it. Ailbhe was excited about it but I think she didn’t take a breath for 15 minutes.
I know I said this before, but I really enjoy this part of the day, when the atmosphere is relaxed at first and then things start getting a little crazier when the time to leave approaches.
Ailbhe being significantly late arriving at the church, she lost her bet with the priest and had to give him €20. This set the tone to the ceremony and the whole day: fun and relaxed.
After seeing Mount Juliet both in spring and fall, I can’t honestly say which is more beautiful. Look at those colours and this light! It is the perfect backdrop to any bride and groom still on a little cloud after saying their vows.
Special mention to the bride’s shoes (incorporating the something blue, borrowed, old, new and a sixpence), the autumn colours and light and the smiles of the happy couple.
