Describe your wedding:
Our wedding theme was rustic modern.



Tell us about your bridal look:
I chose a soft A-line wedding dress by Justin Alexander! Sam from Arthú did my hair and my makeup was by Makeup by Fiona.



What did your bridesmaids wear?
Bought dresses from Bridal Glee Online. We chose a chiffon maroon full-length dress.



What was your ceremony like?
We had a civil ceremony in the Lodge! Our celebrant was Enda Harte from Spiritual Ceremonies.



Tell us about your wedding venue:
We wanted something a little different than your regular hotel, so we went and had a look at the Lodge and fell in love straight away. It has a beautiful view overlooking Lough Corrib and the grounds are amazing for photos. All rooms in the Lodge are modern, yet each is unique. They have six fabulous bridal suites to choose from, each designed differently. The food is fantastic!



What is your favourite memory from your wedding day?
Loved every minute of it!!!



Have you got any advice for other couples?
Relax and enjoy the day from the moment you wake up! Take some time to yourselves throughout the day.
