A magical day to remember filled with love, our aim with all of our weddings! Meet Aoibheann & Ronan, a fabulous Irish couple that found their happy ever after last August 2021. Their love for each other proved to be unbreakable through the many setbacks and restrictions that the couple had to face during the pandemic. Finally, after a date change, venue change & guest number change they finally got to tie the knot and today we share a piece of their special day with you! The stunning photos of their Merrion Hotel dream wedding were captured by the very talented Michael Toman of Story of Eve, one of the amazing wedding vendors we are proud to work with!
How They Met
Aoibheann and Ronan are a fabulous Irish couple who met through their work in the medical world. Their connection grew stronger every day which turned into love and last summer they promised each other forever. Our lovely bride although of Irish origin grew up in Grand Cayman while her dashing groom originated from Dublin. The rest of their touching love story will remain between the lovely couple but do not worry we will show you pieces of their marvelous wedding day!
Their Dream Venue
The wedding venue that the couple originally chose for their wedding was the stunning Adare Manor. Unfortunately, with the influences of the pandemic and its restrictions on numbers and travel they opted to have it closer to home. The couple as well as most of their family and friends live in Dublin so they decided to have the wedding in Dublin. The ceremony took place in the lovely St. Mary’s Haddington Road Church followed by a reception at the luxurious Merrion Hotel. Look at these fabulous locations, aren’t they just perfect for your Dream Irish Wedding!
Wedding Theme & Colour Palette
For their wedding theme Aoibheann and Ronan decided on elegant, timeless & chic. It was important to them that this style was represented throughout their wedding so off course we made that happen! Their colour palette of white, green, gold with a hint of blush worked beautifully with the interior and style of the Merrion Hotel don’t you agree?
Stylish Mum of the brides influence & love of flowers was very evident when it came to the flowers!! Lots of orchids and beautiful white roses were the main flowers used by the wonderfully creative florist Stephanie, the French Touch throughout the floral arrangements. The colour palette for the floral arrangements was whites/greens with hint of pink introduced into the reception flowers. We absolutely adored the tall, very glamorous centerpieces! These floral arrangements certainly brought the wedding spirit alive and made the venue feel magical for Aoibheann and Ronan, not to mention the fairy tale created at the church.
To say Aoibheann looked anything less than radiant in her couture wedding gown would be an understatement. She wore a breath-taking gown designed by Peter Langner an incredibly talented designer in Italy. Due to the restrictions, she couldn’t travel to Italy for her fitting and alterations. Bless the Peter Langner Studio for sending her dress to her in Dublin without her having to travel! Aoibheann completed her bridal look with these stunning white satin heels for the ceremony and the gorgeous blue heels for the photoshoot in Merrion Square & even made it through the gates of Leinster House! Doesn’t she look absolutely radiant and ready to marry her soulmate!
Planning The Wedding
The planning of the wedding went very smoothly if you were to ask Ronan who had the most relaxed job of all and that was to show up at the wedding! The planning was done by the lady squad Michelle, our fabulous wedding planner, Aoibheann’s amazing mother and of course the blushing bride herself. Together they made a wedding of Aoibheann & Ronan dreams become a reality that they now look back on with wonderful memories.
The planning of the wedding did not go without challenges. Due to the number and travel restrictions they had to change their venue and cut back on the guest list. To ensure that all their loved ones could witness their love and union together they had an intimate dinner the night before the wedding. The dinner was held at 25 Fitzwilliam with some guests who sadly could not attend the wedding day. The love Aoibheann and Ronan have for each other proved to be stronger than anything that was thrown their way and this summer they get to celebrate their first wedding anniversary!
It was our absolute pleasure to organize and be part of their marvelous wedding. We wish Aoibheann and Ronan all the love, adventures, and good fortune in the world! They are a match made in heaven.
A special thanks to the incredible team of vendors who made their dream wedding a reality!
