This beautiful day features moments from a day full of laughs, moments of love and moments of joy with really lovely people. The words below are answers to questions from Sharon & Naoise themselves.
How Our Morning Went: Our wedding morning was very relaxed , the sun was shining which added to my excitement for the day ahead! Our makeup artist, Amanda and hair stylist, Louise, Ed & Tara our videographer all kept us so calm and all added to the enjoyment of the prep while also keeping us on time without adding any pressure to the morning! There was a few memorable moments throughout the morning getting ready with the girls and my parents, I was surprised I didn’t have any nerves except just before we got ready to leave the house.
How Our Ceremony Went: The nerves set in just as we arrived at the church but once we took some pictures outside I was good to go and then it was time to walk up the aisle with my Dad. I wasn’t nervous as I walked up the aisle and the ceremony was full of laughter and happiness and our priest made sure we were both relaxed and calm, we had Nicola McGuire sing beautifully during our ceremony with our family and friends taking part in readings with and prayers, and most memorable part was greeting all our family and friends as we left the church as Mr & Mrs!
How Our Photos/Drinks Reception Went: We had our photoshoot at Belleek Woods in Ballina which was a fab spot, and we had a great laugh during the shoot with our bridal party! The pictures are so natural and Ed captured the day so well from capturing the smallest details to everyone’s reactions, we had formal family photographs which were short and sweet and didn’t take too much time out of our reception! Ed then captured us at sunset on Enniscrone Beach after dinner and just before our first dance, which was definitely one of the highlights of the day with the most stunning photographs to top off the best day!
Our Meal/First Dance: Our meal and service at the hotel was perfect, Ed captured lots of great reactions to speeches and our guests. Our first dance was You and I by Tom Walker we really enjoyed it with a few lifts and dips throughout it, cheered on by our guests! We danced the night away to The Cosmonauts who were fantastic!
Our Wedding Advice: Enjoy the build up, don’t stress on the small things and there will always be something that will go wrong that no-one else will notice only you. Choose your suppliers wisely as they are such a big part of your day too and they help make the day stress-free. We could not have been happier with all our suppliers who helped us so much in the lead-up and on our big day! Enjoy every minute of the day as it just goes by so quickly so soak it all in.
Our Experience with Ed: We could not have been happier with Ed Reid, not only is Ed an amazing photographer, he is just so professional, from my first enquiry to book him all the way up to our wedding week, all of our dealings were so easy, nothing was a big deal for Ed! We had looked at lots of Eds work and just loved his natural style. A testament to Ed and his work is how highly all of our other suppliers spoke of Ed in the lead-up to our wedding. He kept us on time all day without any pressure or stress and you’d barely notice Ed snapping away during the day and night. He made us all so relaxed and comfortable on the day – never taking too long to take the perfect shot!
We loved looking back on all the pictures, they were available so quickly after our wedding day and there was so many moments he captured that we did not even see on the day! We can’t recommend Ed enough, we were so lucky to have him capture our wedding day and thank you again!
