A Relaxed Summer Wedding With 25 Guests

“We had a fantastic day with 25 people. It was really relaxed and enjoyable. Our florist, The Tangled Bramble, put together beautiful bouquets with pinks, blues and purple which was really summery and beautiful.”

Couple: Orla and Paul
Engagement length: 1 year
Wedding date: 2021-06-25
Wedding location: Tulfarris Hotel
Photographer: David Maury Photography

 

Orla and Paul met while working in the Gaeltacht in Mayo. Their proposal story is utterly romantic!

“We were camping in Donegal for the weekend and he proposed out on the headland. Sun was shining and we were the only people around.”

 

“We had a fantastic day with 25 people. It was really relaxed and enjoyable. Our florist, The Tangled Bramble, put together beautiful bouquets with pinks, blues and purple which was really summery and beautiful.”

 

Because of the pandemic, they bought the wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses online. All of them were quite light and summery. Orla bought her dress on JJs House and had it altered locally. Paul wore a tailored suit that he had made in Dundalk.

 

The bridesmaids wore dark green and the groomsmen had dark grey suits. The bridesmaids’ dresses are from ChiChi London and the suits were purchased in Dundalk.

 

“Our ceremony was in Crosschapel church. A family friend Fr. John Hughes said the mass. Maria Fitzgerald did our music. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable ceremony and the music was beautiful.”

 

“Tulfarris Hotel was incredible. We booked the Manor house for the 2 days and Hotel staff went above and beyond to look after us on the weekend. The food was absolutely delicious!!”

 

“Our photographer, David, is a gentleman. He made us feel so calm and relaxed on the day. We didn’t feel as if we had to be very rigid and posed. He made huge efforts with our friends and family and he has the patience of a saint! Would highly recommend him.”

 

“Our videographer, Juliana, was so lovely and a pleasure to work with. We never felt as though we were being filmed all day and she was so professional to deal with from the very start.”

 

“We had originally booked The Bentley Boys but couldn’t have them in the end because of the pandemic. They were so nice about all of it. Would definitely love to have them at an occasion in the future.”

 

My favourite memory was walking up the aisle. Seeing all of our friends and family, everyone so excited to be there.”

 

“Don’t stress too much about the small details. It all works out and at the end of the day, those tiny things don’t matter hugely. The main thing is to have fun with your friends and family!”
