Alice & Liam
23rd September 2023
Our engagement story:
Liam brought us to the beautiful Killiney Hill in Dublin where we had our first date and he proposed at the top of the hill. After that, he had a red envelope treasure hunt. He had riddles in each of the envelopes which brought us around to all of our favorite spots in the city.
Our love story:
We met at a music festival called Electric Picnic in Ireland. We had gone to the same university and had the same friends but somehow never met. We were both camping with those same mutual friends and the minute we met we knew that was it! ♥️
Bride's wedding dress:
Anna Skirt and Anna Top
Falling in love with my Catherine Deane outfit:
The MINUTE I got dressed in the bridal boutique I knew it was made for me. It felt classic with a twist which was exactly what I was looking for. On the day of our wedding our guests commented on my outfit and said it's so unique and perfectly made for me.
Did you go to a CD showroom or purchase your gown online?
I visited the stunning London bridal boutique and had an incredible experience. Zun was so helpful, and the experience was so delightful.
We asked a close group of friends (males and females) to wearing ''something blue.''
Tell us about your Wedding Venue:
What an absolute stunning wedding venue at the Horetown House in Wexford. It was a dream come true. In the breathtaking Irish countryside, which are ran by the most professional, delightful and relaxed people. Niamh describes it as a high-end house party and that's exactly what it was. We rented the old country house for 3 days. We ended up having a stunning party with 166 guests, which was friends and family.
Delightful and celebrations. Very relaxed and informal but with great fun at the centre of it all.
Lauren Elizabeth – what an incredible photographer. She was focused on capturing all the small details on the day and making sure we made the most of the golden hour in the evening.
Our Honeymoon destination:
Kenya and Tanzania awaits us on our honeymoon still to come in January 2024.
Our most memorable moment:
Our best friend was our ''celebrant'' and we wrote the whole ceremony ourselves. We had friends and family do the readings, and we laughed and cried the whole way through. After that, the band was incredible. Liam, myself and the entire group danced nonstop all night long. At one point the singer said ''this is the part where we usually ask people to get up for the last few songs, but none of you have left the dancefloor all night so just keep doing what you're doing.''
Our funniest moment:
We did not have a moment without laughing throughout the day. We walked into the reception to Smokie's ''Living Next Door to Alice'' and everyone shouted ''Alice, Alice - who the is Alice'' which was hilarious.
