A Relaxed Covid Wedding Celebration in a Garden

The wedding celebrations continued in their garden which they decorated themselves. This DIY wedding decor included lights and fabric to cover the ceiling, creating a lovely cosy atmosphere.

Length of engagement: 2 and half years

Wedding Date: 2020-07-24

Wedding location: Wedding at home, photos at Slieve Russell

Dawn and William had a beautiful, intimate wedding ceremony, followed by a reception dinner in a garden. They describe their festivities as colourfully rustic, vintage and relaxed.

 

 

“There were 25 people allowed with Covid restrictions to the Church. We only had 10 people to the church as we couldn’t face drawing another guest list with so much uncertainly. We had 25 total to the reception dinner afterwards. Was lovely and relaxed.”

 

 

Dawn and William then went over to Slieve Russell to have photos taken with their photographer, Laura Mc.

Dawn, William and their 25 guests enjoyed a four course meal in the garden, followed by speeches. They all danced the night away, with a two piece band entertaining them.

 

 

When asked about her favourite memory of the Big Day, Dawn said: “Journey to church. The service, family photos, Friends, music… I think I have every part of the day covered there actually. It was a really lovely day start to finish.”

 

 

“Listen politely to advice and from others who know best, but go with what you both feel in your hearts is most important to you both. Big, small, posh or DIY… venue, guest list, etc. The day does really go in a blink and nobody will stand there with a clipboard awarding points for the effort put into a wedding. Just relax. Enjoy the plans, enjoy the morning beforehand, enjoy the atmosphere, enjoy being surrounded by the people who you love and love you. It’s one day, if it’s with the right person you will only do it once, you both know what matters most is you.”
