Remember the sneak peek post I did earlier this week about the rock n' roll bride with the green Doc Martens? Here is the full wedding of Ursula and Jonathan, one of the coolest couples I've had this year.
Ursula is from Austria originally, but now lives in Ireland and works as a chef. Isn't her mouse apron she made as a child cute?
Ursula's fab bee gem-encrusted shoes are Kurt Geiger from BT2, while her pretty blue-sashed dress is from deStafford Bridal, Dublin.
The ceremony was held at an historic church in Crookstown, Co Kildare, the SS Laurence Mary Church. I love how Ursula's aunt and uncle wore their traditional dress from Austria and brought a little bouquet of Austrian flowers! So sweet! The church was decorated beautifully with flowers by the mega-talented Dave Clancy Floral Design of Kilcullen. And Jonathan was so excited to have his two baby boxers come for a photo with the two of them after the ceremony. Can't believe Ursula managed to keep them from muddying her lovely dress :)
Jonathan is one of the green-keepers at Finnstown House where they had their fabulous reception. Luckily it wasn't raining so the guests enjoyed themselves outside listening to traditional Irish music. Finnstown House has two resident peacocks who were a bit shy and didn't shake their tail feathers that day sadly.
This beautiful and fun couple are so in love so I must admit it was easy to get romantic shots of them by the gazebo in the late evening sun. I really enjoyed being part of their day and want to thank them for being so wonderful. And also for the most scrumptious meal I've ever had at a wedding!
