Articles, Real Weddings
Meet Ciara and Sean, a stunning couple who tied the knot in the summer. We love that they added pretty pops of pastel colours into the festivities. From the pink and purple flowers all the way to the blue bridesmaids dresses.


Couple: Ciara & Sean
Engagement length: 15 months
Wedding date: 2022-07-23
Wedding location: Clanard Court Hotel
Photographer: Laura Mc Photography



We love the summery pastel colours they chose for their Big Day! The flowers had beautiful pops of pink and purple and the bridesmaids dresses were a stunning shade of blue.





Ciara wore a gorgeous wedding dress from Dreamy Curves Bridal. She chose to get ready at Revive Salon at Clanard Court Hotel!


“It was so handy getting ready in the hotel. The salon is beautifully set up and all the staff did a wonderful job at making us all look our best.”




Ciara and Sean describe their wedding ceremony as “So special” and attribute this to their fabulous celebrant, Lorraine McCarthy!





They are incredibly happy with their wedding venue, Clanard Court! Here’s what they had to say about it:


“I can’t recommend the Clanard Court enough. We had our ceremony and reception there and we had the best experience we could have wished for. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, Emma, Eoin, and John all looked after us so well and everything was beautiful. Our guests couldn’t say enough good things about the food and accommodation. We had the perfect day with our ceremony in the marquee and our photos in the garden. We can’t wait to go back and will definitely be celebrating anniversaries there in the future!I especially want to mention the staff who went above and beyond to make our wedding unforgettable.”



They describe their wedding photographer, Laura, as fantastic!

“She got all our requested family pictures and plenty of candids too. Laura had lots of great ideas and brought along props to make our photos more memorable. Pictures with sparklers and her smoke machine were some of our favourites. I would definitely recommend Laura, she was so professional and helped make our day unforgettable.”


They added lots of special touches to their wedding, beginning with the flowers, bouquets and other little touches, arranged by Sunflower Designs. Ciara had a rough idea of what she wanted, but Eileen took those ideas and created a gorgeous floral look for the Big Day.



We love that they included a selfie mirror, candy Ferris wheel, dance floor and light up letters. All of these were arranged by Carolyn’s Sweets and they look fantastic!

“We loved getting back all the photos from the selfie mirror and the sparkle dance floor was a big hit!”



Their fabulous cake was originally meant to be one cake! Ciara had pictures of two different styles of cake that she liked and couldn’t choose between. Caoimhe came up with the idea to combine the two ideas and Ciara and Sean loved it!
