I couldn’t wait for Rebecca and Taigh’s Millhouse Slane wedding. It proved to be one of the most fun days I’ve ever got to capture. Just look at Rebecca’s amazing smile (in every single photo, I must add!) and you’ll know what I mean!
Rebecca and Taidgh both chose to get ready at the venue. I always find it makes the day so much more relaxing. You don’t need to worry about losing time in traffic and losing your guests on the way! You can wake up in a beautiful location, take the morning slowly and just enjoy being with your close family and friends. Taidgh got ready in the main house while Rebecca and her bridesmaids had their morning in the Coach House.
Rebecca and Taidgh’s style for their Millhouse Slane wedding completely stole my heart. As Rebecca said herself in the morning, nothing really matches – and yet everything did! Taidgh had no specific plan for his look, and ended up getting an amazing brown woolen ensemble. Rebecca’s bridesmaids’ only brief was “pastel dresses”, and the combination of colours and styles works together perfectly. The soft yet colourful rose bouquets by Ab Fab Flowers added a lovely splash of colour to this unique industrial-looking venue. And Rebecca herself looks absolutely radiant in her stunning Justin Alexander dress from The Bridal Outlet.
Couple Wedding Photos: First Look
Another fantastic way to make your day even more relaxing and exciting is to do a first look! The ceremony was on site, so Rebecca and Taidgh had lots of time in the morning. It made perfect sense to get the photos done in the morning and enjoy as much time as possible with the guests. Check here for other reasons why I love a first look wedding!
The weather treated us so nicely all the way up to the afternoon and even let us get the best first look photos. Still, Ireland decided to remind us that it’s October after all and give us a bit of a fright with a passing shower! We got some incredible photos around the old Mill with the cool textured backdrops. I love the geometry of the old stairs, the blue of the Museum of Transport and the little lights strewn around the grounds. All these spots are within minutes’ walk from each other. Rebecca and Taidgh were laughing and giggling through all the photos, and I honestly couldn’t stop capturing their beautiful chemistry!
Rebecca and Taidgh’s Millhouse Slane wedding ceremony went off without a hitch, with beautiful readings and singing by one of the bridesmaids. Rebecca’s uncle officiated the ceremony, which made it even more heartfelt and personal. The last beautiful touch were the vows that Rebecca and Taidgh wrote for each other. They talked about the way they support each other, the way Taidgh always felt at home living over in the UK, and the way Rebecca has made a new happy home in Ireland. Writing your own vows is such a beautiful thing you can do for your wedding! But if the idea of saying them in front of everyone makes you really nervous, maybe think about writing letters to each other to exchange in the morning?
