Set in the picturesque surroundings of Adare Manor, Louise and James celebrated their dream wedding on a bright and clear Sunday in August surrounded by family and friends. With the couples’ personal touches sprinkled throughout the day it was a wedding to remember in a luxurious setting they will never forget.
Louise and James love story began at the workplace where sparks flew and a connection was made. The pair are both from the United Kingdom but with Louise’s Irish heritage when it came to getting married, a destination wedding in Ireland was always going to be on the cards.
Louise was glowing on the day in her gorgeous bridal gown complete with a lace overlay bodice which was later removed at the reception to reveal a stunning sweetheart neckline. Complete with a pop of emerald green in her glorious Manolo Blahnik heels. Simple swept back hair and natural makeup made sure that Louise’s beauty shone throughout the whole day.
Travelling to Ireland, Louise and James had initially planned to view a selection of wedding venue options but as soon as they arrived at Adare Manor they instantly fell in love and put a halt to any other viewings. With its gorgeous grounds and amazing gold course, Louise and James knew that they had found their dream wedding destination to host their three day wedding celebrations.
The ceremony was held at the beautiful Holy Trinity Abbey Church in Adare with a mixture of florals including classic white roses, hydrangeas and delphinium decorating the pews along the aisle, the backs of the couples chairs and lining the altar as a stunning centrepiece. Not only inside the church, the flowers also framed the entrance outside in an arch to add an extra personal touch.
With vows exchanged and a marriage made official, the couple brought their guests back to the gorgeous grounds of Adare Manor to continue the celebration. Inside, the grand hallway was transformed with flowers. The kaleidoscope of dusty blue, ivory and greens carried through to the ballroom as the night drew in.
Guests were seated at tables adorned with flowers and candlelight as more fragrant florals hung from the ceiling to create an air of opulence as they tied in with the glorious, glittering chandeliers adding to the romance of the occasion.
