jen & mark's nostalgic vintage christmas wedding at middleton park house county westmeath ireland

Jen and Mark love Christmas and I absolutely loved being the photographer of their sweet vintage-inspired wedding last weekend at Middleton Park House in County Westmeath. They are the sweetest and most gorgeous couple ever! Jen was like a little doll in her tea-length dress by Stephanie Allin (it was originally full-length but was completely transformed by local seamstress Ingrid Adomavice). Her hair was pulled up in handmade snowflake clips and a bird-cage veil made by talented local milliner Bernice Rafferty of Fashion and Feathers of Moate, Westmeath. She also made Jen's sister's Emer's green hair-clips. This is a very talented DIY family as Jen's sister Emer helped her make the fabulous rose bouquets with brooches. Mark and Jen made the Norman Rockwell invitations themselves, and they also decorated the tables at the reception. They made the cutest Christmas tree ornament favors out of clay and stamps for their guests! I think there are some very talented people in Westmeath! Their cake-topper was from Jenifer's grandparent's wedding back in 1949! Enjoy this lovely Christmas wedding and Happy Holidays to you all!
