A Super Fun Real Wedding Video at Castleknock Hotel & Country Club by My Day My Way

The Couple: Darren Kelly & Ana Paula Lima De Oliveira

Length of engagement:  18 months| Wedding Date: 17th May 2014

Wedding location: Castleknock Hotel & Country Club

Videographer: Gareth Lima-Conlon (on behalf of My Day My Way)

We met… at the world cultural festival 2009 in Dun Laoghaire.

Our proposal… We went to Enfield hotel and Darren proposed there – he had bottled the idea of doing it on Brooklyn Bridge in New York and regrets this!

We chose our videographer because… we were at a friends wedding and were first introduced to the mydaymyway service (you film the day and the footage is professionally edited afterwards) and after seeing the results we really wanted to use it at our own wedding. So we contacted Gavin from He went through everything which turned out to be very user friendly. Gareth, our good friend helped record the whole day which we can’t thank enough as Gavin had so much great footage to work with. Gavin is a complete gent and produced an extremely memorable video which we will look back on over the years to remind us of one of the best days of our lives.

We chose our venue because…we loved how modern and professional the set up was. The staff at the Castleknock Hotel & Country Club were incredible, helpful and no little detail was over looked.

Our menu

Starter – Baked crottin of goats cheese

Soup – Roasted Parsnip with lemon

Mains – Roasted sirloin of bandon vale beef or fillet of haddock

Deserts – White chocolate and raspberry mousse & cupcakes

My favourite part of the wedding day… Seeing everyone enjoying all the little and big surprises we planned, the finger print guest book and scratch cards and also the samba band and silent disco. All the work really paid off.

My piece of advice for other brides… Get the groom super involved in organising everything and enjoy a stress free wedding planning, haha!
