Cliffs Of Moher Wedding

Great day at Cliffs of Moher in Doolin Hotel with Sinead and Patrick. They love and happiness can be easily seen in below photos. I can not describe how easy it was to fit into this wedding their laid-back manners makes you feel like you know them for a long time. That makes photographing much more comfortable. It was amazing to hear ” we don’t mind Darek “:) on most of my questions. Sinead happily takes shoes off and went up the hill for some photos it shows their strong connection to nature. I can not forget to mention this amazing dress completed with even more amazing flower crown Sinead wear. Just out of this world. Simple and beautiful.

Ceremony in marque at Doolin Hotel grounds following drink reception in the same place makes all day super cool. We managed to slip out for quick paint of Guinness and ..chips yes chips into a local pub. It was great to get away for few moments and get even more photos in a nice old pub nearby.

From couples:

Darek we cannot thank you enough for how kind and relaxed you were – it really made the day for us!!! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

I can only add it was a pleasure to witness your amazing ceremony and be along with you that day.

 

How did the proposal go, if there was one?

We took a trip to Denmark for our 6th anniversary of us getting together; since on our first date we had been to the Christmas Market in Edinburgh and our combined love of all things Scandinavian, we knew we had to visit the Tivoli Christmas Market in Copenhagen. After the christmas market mooch, we ended up at a trendy waterside street food market.Ccomplete with great music, drinks and open fires inside. I had been planning to ask Sinead to marry me on the trip but to my dismay, she had made a couple of jokey comments about expecting a proposal on the run to the trip and again earlier in the day, so I had put off the moment of popping the question until she was least expecting it.

A couple of hours into the night a huge storm, with gale force winds battering the city, had arrived and one of the guys working the bar advised that the trains and subway were all closed down because of this and that people should make their way home before it got much worse. As we left I knew it was now or never. With the wind howling, I suggested to Sinead that we walk over to the bank of the river again and she looked at me like I had gone mad. I managed to convince her that it was a good idea, and when she turned back from the water I was down on one knee. I succeeded in surprising her! We then made our way back through the storm to the apartment we were staying in, windswept and wet but happy!

We wanted to the day to be simple, no fuss, cosy and relaxing. With paddy an ecologist and me and Architect, we wanted the styling to be natural, simple and authentic. Space was light naturally with candles so as night fell so did the light. I had wildflower headpiece/ bouquet and table centrepieces. Barrel cake table with cake sitting on natural wood slice casual hay bale seating Infinity foliage circle ceremony backdrop used again for top table backdrop and a few more hanging from the ceiling of the bar area. Statement ‘LOVE’ letters framing DJ and dancefloor. Súgán chairs with sheepskin rugs with wooden “Mr & Mr’s” to the rear. Hanging ‘aged’ wooden ladders feature to the ceiling of main space with natural foliage hanging from it. Log fires outside.

How did you find & pick your venue?  Having lived in the UK since I left for Edinburgh in 2005 It was tricky to decide where we would want to get married. But the draw was back home to the beautiful County Clare
