Darver Castle Wedding Adam and Grace Flower Arch Installation Church Door Entrance Pink Rose Greenery

Welcome to the Darver Castle wedding of Laura and Niall who were wed on the 23rd Aug 2019 in Ireland. Their day was no-frills and relaxed with food, music and plenty of craic being at the forefront of their plans. Sounds pretty amazing right?

I adore the vintage style to their day, with stunning attire, hair and make up reminiscent of a bygone era and the most incredible flower arrangements. I especially love the flower installation surrounding the church entrance and the pretty bouquets. Wow.

A massive thanks go to Adam and Grace for sharing these enchanting images with us. Enjoy it all folks.

Darver Castle Wedding

The Proposal

Niall, ever the romantic had been arranging this for months along with the help of his best friend Robbie. He had told me he won a competition for a weekend away with spa treatments to Lough Eske Castle in Donegal. I was blissfully unaware what was ahead of me. He even had the hotel staff in on the surprise. As we headed for dinner, Niall decided to take a detour that lead us to the top of the castle where the room was beautifully decorated with candles and rose petals. Niall got down on one knee and that was that. One of the best and most memorable moments in my life.

The Vision

I would say our look was quite vintage with a very natural feel. We wanted our bridal party to look natural with no fuss. I would say our wedding was very relaxed with excellent food, music and plenty of craic. A no-frills wedding
