A day full of music and beauty! I couldn’t find a better description for Fiona and Owen’s Tinakilly House Wedding. They were so relaxed and chilled planning their big day that it couldn’t have gone any better.
Getting Ready at Tinakilly House
Tinakilly House is a gorgeous hotel and wedding venue in the beautiful county Wicklow, and I love the way it combines the best of both worlds. Being a hotel, there are a lot of rooms and a lot of space for all the guests, and you don’t need to worry about finding accommodation for everyone. Being a former manor house, it has absolutely gorgeous rooms, immaculate grounds and lots of amazing features – like that stunning staircase for example!
Fiona and her beautiful bridesmaids got ready at the house, and it was an absolute blast. I couldn’t wait to see Fiona in her stunning gown from B Couture Bridal Wear. The train on the dress and the length of the veil are just incredible! I honestly had no clue how Fiona would manage in it for the whole day but as soon as she put it on everyone could see the dress was simply made for her! She looked so effortlessly elegant and comfortable in her gown, it was amazing.
St Patrick’s Church Wedding Ceremony in Wicklow
The couple chose to have the ceremony at the local St Patrick’s Church. The stunning interior really added to the beautiful ceremony but we were all completely blown away by the music. Both singers, Fiona and Owen asked Habemus Chamber Choir they are part of to sing for their wedding ceremony. There were literal goosebumps in the congregation and definitely not a dry eye… Everyone commented on the music, and it really was the most gorgeous singing I’ve heard in my life! Such an honour to witness and be part of the ceremony.
Tinakilly House Wedding Photos
Back in Tinakilly House for the drinks reception, Kevin from Little Bear Films and I took Fiona and Owen for a stroll around the grounds. They are so effortlessly good-looking and so in love, we just couldn’t stop gushing!
There are a number of amazing spots in Tinakilly for wedding photos. The grounds are stunning and look very different depending on the season. I went for a bit of research in late April with cherry blossoms and rhododendrons in bloom. This time round there were roses and leafy trees everywhere. But best of all, hidden around the corner in the glamping area there is an amazing field with views over the Wicklow Mountains.
The house itself has so many little nooks as well you could spend the whole day taking photos around it. While we didn’t have the whole day we certainly couldn’t miss the grand staircase in the entrance hallway. That setting was simply made for Fiona and Owen!
