The Red Wedding 

A few weeks back we attended the wedding of Paulie’s sister Martina to her longtime partner Paul. I hadn’t been to a wedding not in a church before but they’re becoming increasingly popular here in Ireland. Paul and Martina’s ceremony was a nice length and they even included their kids Amber and Jake, with a really lovely sand ceremony. This was a nice touch as its a keepsake they can have forever. 

Martina’s dress suited her completely and the detail was just stunning. Matching her mammies hair, Ambers red dress was made by Paulies mam and was really set off by embellished converse. The boys, Paul and Jake scrubbed up well and looked so smart in their bow ties! 

The food was delicious and Martina and Paul really put a lot of thought and detail into their special day, they spoiled us with a sweets table and the wedding cake tying in with the theme, was a giant red velvet cupcake and plenty of little ones for those who weren’t fazed by the sweets! 

These days you can’t say your guests have gotten thoroughly carried away unless there’s a photo booth, and we weren’t let down. Whoever thought of having these at weddings is a genius! They are such good laugh and a really nice momento of the day! 

A truly great day was had by all and I must have lost some pounds because the tunes were pumping on the dance floor all night! Roll on the next one! 

My dress is from Virgos Lounge and I had my makeup applied that morning by the lovely girls at Laura Mercier in Brown Thomas.
