Aoife+Michael The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens Killarney Co. Kerry

The Dunloe is truly 5 star and a perfect location for this bride and groom who had a suitably classic wedding day. Kerry being the Kingdom, the scenery is second to none. The groom got prepared in traditional thatched cottage while the bride took advantage of the top class hotel.

Subtle light colour flowers shone through the day, from the boutonnieres, to the bouquets, to the wedding cake, even on the bride’s shoes. The brides wore a traditional long sleeve dress. The bridesmaids matching red dresses each had a subtle design difference, be it peal neckline or shoulder design, belt buckle or full waist belt of pearls.

The ceremony took place in St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney. A bright and impressive cathedral. The groom took a deep breath of excitement anticipation as the bride approached with her father. The ceremony had an atmosphere of good tense and when the I do-s were said the first kiss and raise of arms was a joyous release of energy in celebration of the marriage. The exit was great to see so much support for the bride and groom.

The ring of Kerry is something made for the movies. The winding roads, stone walls, rocky hills, lush green vegetation and then lakes. The photoshoot no matter what the weather gets fantastic results.

The Dunloe for the drinks reception has great interiors but the large balcony on a elevated level allows guests to enjoy the surrounding at the Gap of Dunloe.

The banqueting room is in a private area bringing guest on a walk to the evening and night entertainment. Fresh from their move the rapturous welcome guest gave the bride and groom appropriately encapsulated the joy and excitement of this authentic wedding.
