Admit it we’re all suckers when it comes to a good love story, well brace yourselves – as todays blog is all about Jenny and Dave who tied the knot in an eco friendly outdoor ceremony where the love was flowing in abundance.
Team Duane (Paul & Fiona) arrived at Jenny’s mothers house to see Jenny getting her make – up done by the very talented Ruth Kelly De Swart from nearby Kylebrack Salon. Bridesmaids and family members were also there pottering about getting themselves ready. There was such a calm atmosphere around the whole house, no stressing at all, and having had the pleasure to get to know and work closely with Jenny over the past year the stress free environment was no surprise really. She was super organised and had her own quirky stamp on the wedding which we were so looking forward to capturing.
Now I did say quirky right?! Well how many Brides do you know that wear cowboy boots under their wedding dress! Jenny had the most gorgeous pair of brown leather cowboy boots discreetly hidden away underneath her elegant lace frock, much to the surprise of her wedding guests (who were later captured getting her to hitch up her dress for a good inspection)
In addition to her savage choice of footwear, Jenny also opted for a bouquet with a difference. Herself and a close friend of hers made a crochet bouquet and I must say it was so unique and pretty, and the best part is that she can keep it forever!
Once the bridesmaids and family members had finished ooohing and ahhing at how outstanding Jenny looked, we headed off to the grounds where the ceremony was been held and told Jenny we’d see her there. Her last words were “text me if he’s not there”, As if! we thought, we knew how crazy her man was about her and was sure he had arrived there early!
We arrived at the stunning Woodville Walled Gardens for the ceremony and the atmosphere was just lovely and calm despite the drizzle. A few guests even rocked up wearing wellies and had umbrellas so nothing could rain on their parade so to speak. Dave was waiting patiently for his girl, he opted for the more casual attire himself but looked equally as dashing as a more traditional groom. He too adorned cowboy boots, his and hers don’t you just love it!
The ceremony itself was so romantic, the rings were passed to each guest so they could give their own private best wishes for the couple, Jenny and Dave mixed soil from their grandparents gardens and with the newly combined soil they planted a tree to symbolise their love and may it continue to grow.
When the legal part was over the guys wanted to head to their local pub “The Hill Bar” in Kylebrack, which coincidentally was Pauls grandfathers local back in the day too so that was a real treat for us all. A swift pint later and a few giggly shots outside we were on our way again but Jenny and Dave planned to arrive at their reception venue in style. “Horse and Carriage style”. It was a lovely touch and gave Jenny and Dave a few moments on their own before they got back to their guests.
The reception was held at the wonderful Three Towers Eco House, the decór was marvellous and the staff had really put the welcome flags out for Jenny and Dave. Such attention to detail had gone in to the reception room and even outside where bunting was hanging from trees, , freshly picked flowers for the tables, carved wood table numbers etc, all tying in with Jennys Eco theme.
It was a great day all round and was such a pleasure to be a part of Jenny and Daves special day, we wish them a lifetime of happiness together and long may they continue to be the others quirky half.
