We chose our venue because… We wanted something classy, fairytale-like and Luttrellstown Castle was actually very close to where I grew up.

Our wedding theme/colours… It was a French/Irish wedding so we tried to have little touches of both.

My favourite part of the wedding day… Jen: Walking down the aisle and seeing family and friends and Luc at the end of the aisle. Luc: Seeing Jen coming down the aisle – she looked so beautiful.

My piece of advice for other brides… Don’t leave things to the last minute – try and have nothing to do the night before except relax!
