Pretty Pink Wedding Festivities in Ireland

Names: Denise and Niall Gallagher

Length of engagement: 11 months

Wedding Date: 14th July 2018

Wedding location: Racket Hall Country House Roscrea Co. Tipperary

Photographer: Renata Dapsyte


We met… In Melbas nightclub in Birr.

Our proposal… Niall proposed by the seafront in Ericeira in Portugal.

Our wedding theme/colours… We didn’t have a theme. However, the bridesmaid dress was a light pink so we went with that throughout.

Things we DIY’d/made ourselves… candy cart.

My dress… My dress was very simple. It was a Pronovias dress. I bought it in Bella Donna in Galway.

My hair and makeup… Hair was by Siobhán Coughlan in Cloghan Co Offaly and my make up was by Aileen Duffy Athlone.

His suit… By Galvins in Tullamore.

What our bridal party wore… My bridesmaid wore a dress a light pink dress called Trudy, purchased in Tracey bridal in Galway.

Our ceremony… Was a Catholic ceremony in St Rynaghs Church in Banagher Co. Offaly.

We chose our photographer because… We met Renata Dapsyte at the wedding show in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone. From the minute we met, both myself and Niall knew she would be perfect. On the morning of our wedding you would hardly know she was there. She captured our wedding exactly the way we wanted. She is so relaxed and friendly I cannot recommend her highly enough.

We chose our wedding coordinator because… Our wedding coordinator was Daniel in the Racket Hall in Roscrea. He was so relaxed no task was too big.

We chose our venue, Racket Hall, because… all the staff were so friendly and the food was fabulous.

Our menu… traditional menu with beef or salmon.

Our honeymoon… We went to Toronto and Cancun. We stayed at the secrets hotel in Maroma beach. It was like paradise.

My favourite part of the wedding day… The singing waiters.

My piece of advice for other couples…  Enjoy the day, don’t stress because it’s over in the blink of an eye.
