A Shropshire Wedding - Maura and Kevin

At long last I am back and blogging! I have 4 amazing weddings to share with you, weddings I photographed in the Spring before we went away and I have been desperate to share them!

When Maura and Kevin first got in touch with me to enquire about photographing their day, her bubbly emails won me over and when she told me that they were planning a day that would "a bit rustic vintagey and a little shabby chic.... if you get me?", I totally did!
A few weeks later we met up in person and not only were Maura and Kevin a pleasure to spend time with, the more they chatted the more excited I got by the idea of shooting their day and was thrilled when they asked!

Driving to Shropshire on the evening of another certain wedding (that big old royal one... remember it now!?) I was super excited to see what was to be in store and WOW! What a wedding!

Maura looked absolutely stunning in her Ian Stuart dress with a beautiful 20's style veil that was divine on her dark hair and Kevin looked uber smart in his Ermenegildo Zegna suit from Browns in Dublin and was the smiliest groom I have ever seen!

Their day was filled with personal touched that were a real treat for their guests. From the CD favours on the tables to the old school gramophone DJ. From the beautiful gardens where Maura's mum spent hours perfecting it and growing the most stunning flowers to the occasional appearance of the family cats. From the beautiful wedding cake that Maura's mum made to the awesome Kate and Wills masks that they wore for their entrance to the marque, resulting in the rowdiest welcome ever!

Every single detail was thought through and the details of Maura and Kevin's day were sublime. Walking into their marquee took your breath away as the smell of spring flowers by Maura's bridesmaid and florist Annabel hit you and the incredible lining made you feel like you were sitting in a garden filled with exotic birds. Amazing! I hope you enjoy their colour filled, Spring filled images as much as I enjoyed taking them!
