Doireann met Michael shortly after she moved from Ireland to London and after three years they got engaged. Today we’re delighted so share the highlights video from their summer wedding at Carton House which was beautifully captured by Kevin from Little Bear Films.

The couple were keen to keep their planning as easy as possible and asked both their parents to help, which made organising their wedding from abroad easier.

“We needed accommodation for our guests as Michael’s side are Greek and British and many of our friends live abroad. We also wanted somewhere close to Dublin but in the countryside, ideally an old stately home with a ballroom large enough for a Greek-Irish wedding. Carton House was perfect!” explained Doireann.

The couples ceremony took place in Rathfarnham Church and combined Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox traditions followed by some epic Greek dancing at their reception at Carton House.

“The best part of our day was definitely walking up the aisle and saying our vows. It’s such an amazing feeling seeing all your friends and family in one place,” said Doireann.

Choosing our Videographer

“We considered not having a videographer as it’s yet another thing to budget for, but everyone we know who is married said that this is the one thing you must have! We are so glad we listened to that advice!” said Doireann. “Kevin from Little Bear was just amazing. He is relatively new to the game but already a cut above most of the videographers we researched. Kevin is a story teller, he has an eye for the little details and moments that make a wedding day so special, and can weave them together to create a piece of work that is truly as beautiful as the day itself.”

Doireann’s Advice

“Be persistent with your vision. It was important to us that our wedding reflected us as a couple. Some of the things we wanted to do were not as easy to organise as we expected, like finding an oyster shucker or a place to rent real trees. We had to be quite persistent and look beyond wedding suppliers for these things. Thankfully thinking outside the box paid off and we found everything we wanted.”
