A Perfect Day by Butterfly Photography

By  | 

And what a perfect day it was for our featured couple, Aine and Philip. The two met on a night out and got along immediately but it took a reunion one year later before they knew it was for keeps. Two gorgeous babies later and they couldn’t have been happier. Philip proposed on a whim one day as they were watching TV on the sofa. It just so happened to be their seven year anniversary but they had completely forgotten about the occasion. How serendipitous and sweet!

Thanks, Butterfly Photography, for sharing their wedding day with us.

To Aine and Philip, the most important part of their day was definitely their ceremony in the gorgeous St. Alphonsus Church in Wexford.

Aine’s lovely lace dress with bow and crystal accent compliments the gorgeous bride so well. What a precious moment having your nearest and dearest helping you into your gown. Are those tears or laughter from the bridesmaids behind Aine? Either way, what a memorable moment captured by photographer, Ashling.

“The dress was actually the first I tried on! I went to Eden Manor with two of my best friends and it was such a lovely experience. The setting there is amazing, like something from a fairy tale & the dresses are absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with my dress as soon as I tried it on. It was everything I wanted; lace, with a really classic timeless elegance,” explained Aine.

The bridesmaids are of course looking fab in their dresses from Debenhams but we have to say, Philip and his groomsmen were looking sharp as well with coordinating, but not matching, tan accessories.

For the couple, a special element of their wedding was getting to share it with their two beautiful children. See below for this wedding’s “Aww” moment.

“One of the first highlights of the day was just before myself and the groomsmen were about to go into the church our little Harry had just arrived I didn’t see him until he leapt out of the car and ran straight into my arms it was a beautiful moment at that point the tears weren’t far away,” Philip said.

The couple’s advice: “Enjoy every minute, don’t stress about the small things, and trust the professionals.”

We couldn’t agree more, although sometimes going with the flow is easier said than done!
