castleoaks river wedding photo


Emer and Luke were married in a humanist ceremony in the Castleoaks House Hotel.They had their first date way back in 2012 and three years later, on Valentine’s Day, Luke proposed in Paris with a Haribo ring! It’s these kind of quirky things that I loved most about Emer and Luke, and their wedding day was packed with thoughtful and personal ideas. For starters, Emer wore an amazing, vintage Limerick Lace wedding dress (which is over 100 years old!). Other things included the ring cushion that Emer’s aunt embroidered, their vintage wedding car (organised by Emer’s dad who was dishing out double armed hugs for the day! 😉 ), sand from their childhood beaches for the sand pouring ceremony and stirred with a Welsh spoon, a ring warming, a seat reserved for those who could not be there, a vintage typewriter for the guests to leave notes on (incredible, right?!), my all time favourite Dr. Seuss reading, an emotional song by Emer’s cousin, ice cream in the sunshine, a BEAUTIFUL walk down by the river, Victor’s Mr & Mrs quiz, the list goes on. It was such a great day and I felt privileged to be there to document it.

Here is a tiny selection of some of my favourite images to give you a taste of their wedding day…
