This wedding was full of romance and such a barrel of laughs
Love, family, friends, heartfelt emotion and lots and lots of banter.
Jessica and Adam are both Irish and met in Manchester while living in the UK
They choose Killruddery House and Gardens as their castle venue, and welcomed guests from so many places.
But before we get to the wedding day, we must mention the proposal. It happened twice. Why? Well because of a bear, of course! Seriously. The first proposal was in Yosemite National park by Sequioa trees, and the moment was interrupted by a bear. Imagine! The second time around with the ring Adam designed himself, was on the seaside in Galway when the couple went to visit Jessica’s parents for New Years Eve.
Their wedding day started with Adam and his mates getting ready at Wilton Hotel conveniently located just next to the venue
Adam and his Groomsmen were tons of laughs. He had such care, support and banter from his group of mates. It was lovely to see
Adam gifted his Groomsmen with stunning pocket watches in the day, and from start to finish of Adam’s morning prep, there was sounds of laughter. You can easily hear and witness how close his whole group of mates are.
Adam wore a designer Italian wool suit from Suit Republic
and the Groom and his best men all wore bow ties from Belfast Bow Company
Jess and her stunning ladies Orla, Emma, Lara and Laura all got ready at the castle in the main room.
A morning of more laughter, tea, breakfast, and a some fun with all the gals chilling in the bed with glasses of Prosecco- as you do
Jessica is an exquisite bride. Absolutely stunning
The stunning Jessica wore a dress from Along Came Eve
her make-up was by Fiona Harrison from The Make-up Studio
Her bridal hair was done by Mags from Upstyle Funk
and the flower arches decorating the Grain Store entrance were beautifully and lovingly crafted Jessica’s mother.
It was such a special moment when Jessica and her father had their first look and it was sweet to see how excited her Mom was in the morning, Adams Mom too, as they both looked forward to seeing their children marry
The wedding took place in the stunning Orangery at Killruddery House and Gardens. Killruddery is one of the great historic houses of Ireland with the family lineage of family residing there since 1618
During the heartfelt ceremony, the couple read personalized vows and chose a traditional hand-fasting ceremony. Beautiful to see the love they have for one another, and there were not many dry eyes in the room.
The drinks reception was on the castle grounds and the laughter and celebration built.
We took time for family portraits on the Orangery, bridal party portraits in the gardens and then bridal portraits around the venue
Even climbing the small hill in the back for an epic view of the historic castle
The reception was stunning in the castle grounds Grain Store, the speeches emotional, the party building even more before we took some time out for some cinematic evening portraits with some smoke bomb fun
The place erupted when it came to the dance floor and they all partied the night away. My final few photos of the evening were of Jess’s Mom spinning around on the dance floor in utter joy, and some very touching hugs between Adam and his Mom
It was all so beautiful to witness from and big thanks to Jessica and Adam for having em there to photograph their special day. What a fun couple, it so great meeting them both and all their joyous family and friends
Congrats again to the newlyweds!
