Tra­di­tional charm for Colm & Sinead

Irish Independent - Weekend Magazine - - PHOTOGRAPHER JOHN MINIHAN CLOTHING COLLECTOR WILLI -

When Colm and Sinead were in­tro­duced sev­eral years ago through mu­tual friends, there was an in­stant spark. A few months went by be­fore the pair ar­ranged their first date — but af­ter that there was no stop­ping their ro­mance.

When Colm was plan­ning to pro­pose, he whisked Sinead off on a re­lax­ing week­end break to BrookLodge Ho­tel in Co Wick­low, where he got down on one knee while the pair took a walk on a beau­ti­fully sunny day.

Colm and Sinead opted for a Catholic church wed­ding in the Church of Our Lady of Per­pet­ual Suc­cour, Foxrock, Co Dublin, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion at the stun­ning Druids Glen Re­sort, Co Wick­low. The pair loved the idyl­lic grounds sur­round­ing the venue and knew the beau­ti­ful in­te­ri­ors would be ideal for photos too.

“We wanted to cre­ate a fun at­mos­phere with a spring/ sum­mer theme to it,” says Sinead.

To add a per­sonal touch to the day, Sinead’s aunt Maura cre­ated all of the beau­ti­ful flower ar­range­ments, and a rel­a­tive of Sinead’s sang dur­ing the church cer­e­mony.

Sinead found her per­fect dress in The Bridal Bou­tique in Fairview, Dublin, while her groom wore a suit from Baum­ler on Dublin’s Daw­son Street.

Sinead and Colm en­joyed the hon­ey­moon of a life­time over two weeks. Start­ing in Cancún, Mex­ico, they then trav­elled to Or­lando, Florida, and ended their stay in New York.
