This rustic barn wedding was a dream to capture and a feast for the eyes; the location, the style, the fun, the love - it had it all and it was a real pleasure to witness. Before they got engaged, Paula had spotted a UK barn wedding and admired its unique style, she mentioned it to Trevor in passing but thought nothing more of her remark. Eager to find the perfect Irish equivalent to tie the knot in, Trevor sourced Mount Druid, where he later proposed to Paula, before marrying in the same location in a colourful DIY celebration. Paula and Trevor have become close friends of mine and it was fantastic to see them put their own stamp on their wedding day; "Our wedding represented both of our personalities perfectly. We always wanted a very relaxed feel to the day and the minute we found Mount Druid we knew that they could offer this. It was DIY wedding at the forefront and we made sure we involved as many friends and family to make it as personal as we could. We made sure everyone was well fed and entertained throughout the day with an abundance of amazing musician friends and beautiful music. There wasn’t a dull moment. There was even a surprise trumpet solo from my cousin Andrew "
Paula made all of the decorations with help from willing family and friends. "The whole wedding was so personal to both of us because of the effort that our friends and family put into it, from Trevor’s sister sitting up for the whole night cutting doilies for my invites, his mam spending hours hand crafting each tiny flower for the cake, to my sister’s endless advice - I couldn't have done it without them. My mam in particular was so supportive with all the crazy ideas I had, she never once said that’s too much work and anytime I told her of another idea that I was planning she was first up with advice and offering help with the endless internet searches for material."
Paula's dress came from Myrtle Ivory in Dublin and it was perfect to reflect her feminine 'boho chic' style on the day. Congratulations to you both; you are a charming fun-loving couple and I will never forget your beautiful wedding day!
