A Rustic, Garden Theme Wedding With Bright Pink and Purple Flowers

“For our wedding we were going for a more rustic, garden theme with bright pink and purple flowers. We were planning to get married in the outdoor celebration garden.”

Couple: Vivien and Nathan
Engagement length: 3 years
Wedding date: 2021-08-06
Wedding location: The Ardilaun Hotel
Photographer: Alex Zarodov Photography

Vivien and Nathan met at a Mojo Gogo gig in Dublin.

We had talked about getting married and said we would wait till we built our house. Then one Sunday afternoon I was coming home from a hen. Our tiny apartment was full of candles and roses and he did it there and then. To say I was surprised is an understatement.”

Nathan wore a 3 piece Remus Uomo in a lovely navy check with a contrasting burgundy waistcoat all from Galvin Men in Mullingar. Vivien wore a beautiful puffy A-line style dress with embellished straps and a low back.

 

The groomsmen wore their own suits while the bridesmaids picked their own dresses from a colour palette.

 

“We had a very chilled, laid-back spiritual ceremony. Our solemniser, Yvonne was delightful to work with and was such a relaxing, fun presence on the day.”

 

“Our venue was The Ardilaun Hotel. They really catered for everything with a celebration garden to get married in (even if we couldn’t use it due to the Irish weather) and accommodation for everyone. The staff were very helpful and made sure the day ran smoothly.”

 

“Our photographer, Alex was wonderful and so helpful. Nothing was too big or too small! He was a joy to work with and was in great spirits the whole day even when we went down to Salthill in the pouring rain! He stayed till the bitter end.”

 

Their favourite part of the day was the ceremony! “It was so lovely and talked about by everyone because it was so laid back and chill.”

 

“Get married early! Our ceremony wasn’t until 2 and it just felt later. Photos were a bit rushed and we missed most of our reception.”
