Love is in the Details

Look at this wonderful picture. I love how it’s put together, I love the old worldliness of the church, and I love the shapes and the designs of the knocker, the entrance and the window. I think this is what Failte Ireland should be using to promote Ireland as a wedding destination; the little details, so full of charm and history.

This collection of photographs shows the beauty in a real Irish church-to-hotel wedding. There are no marquees, the bride is not barefoot on a beach; it’s the little details that make it stand out. Keep scrolling because the last picture is a real gem…

The dress! The umbrella! the strolling in the gardens! Such romantic pictures.

This one is going into my folder of ‘Pics to show our photographer to give him an idea of what we want’. Well it’s not really called that, no one makes folder names that long, do they.

Mike Patterson Photography reminds us why there’s no place like home.
