Doireann and Conor opted for a boutique wedding at Mount Druid as they wanted a relaxed alternative wedding day spent with their family and close friends. Mount Druid, as a venue, is a wedding photographer’s dream with its idyllic setting and knick knacks adorning every inch of the place.

The handsome couple do things their own way

Doireann looked amazing in her Freda McCormack dress which flowed beautifully over quirky, glittering bridal shoes. Her hair was expertly done by Kazumi and make up by Laura Kinney. Conor was sharply styled in a navy suit with a wine tie adding a fashionable pop of colour to his outfit.

The couple chose to meet alone in the gardens for their first look before the ceremony in the Tin Chapel. The chapel was tastefully decorated with colourful origami cranes and romantic flowers by A Room In Bloom. The groom’s family played traditional music during the ceremony and the guests had pokes of rose petal confetti to shower the couple with on their way from the altar as husband and wife.

A French Twist

The wedding party had pre-dinner drinks in the Boathouse followed by a buffet dinner in the Barn. Doireann named each of the tables after a place from a book and used old book pages pieced together as table runners. As the couple had met in France, they included some French elements to their menu as a nod to their first encounter. Guests could enjoy some kir royale, biscuit rose de Reim, café gourmand, macarons along with other treats like a variety of delicious cupcakes. The wedding cake was very unique. Made up of different cheeses, it was the main feature of a cheese table for the guests to nibble on. After the appetites were sated, entertainment was provided by wedding band, The Beat Boutique, who got the party going with their lively and eclectic mix of music.
