Irish classic wedding ~ Lisa O’Dwyer Photography

Jun 12, 2013 | Weddings
We have a beautiful Irish love story from Lisa O'Dwyer Photography on the blog today for you! A mutual friend played match maker 8 years ago. Michelle's friend thought Michelle and John would make a lovely couple and once they both gave in and allowed her to introduce them they realised she was indeed very right! From Michelle, the Bride - "We both actually found planning the wedding a very enjoyable experience. Once you are organised, keep lists and recognise that half the battle is making the decisions it reduces a lot of the pressure. Advice that we would pass on is to plan as much in advance as possible and then let things play out as they will on the day. No matter what happens on the day it will be one of the happiest and best times of your lives. The more relaxed you are on the day the more fun and joy you take from the occasion.   Michelle and John 02 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Lisa O'Dwyer duo 1 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 81 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer We decided to have our ceremony in a church and picked a nice old church with lovely gardens that had a very personal feel to it. For our reception we had been to view a number of hotels and this was just what we were looking for. A place by the water with a reception room overlooking the view.  The day itself was planned with a mood in mind rather than a specific theme. When planning for the day the choices we made were to ensure the wedding was relaxed and stress free so that all our guests and the two of us could have a relaxed day to remember that we could look back on with smiles and fondness.  Michelle and John 8224 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Lisa O'Dwyer duo 2 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 41 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 8267 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 35 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 53 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Processional: String Quartet:   Delibes “Flower Duet” Recessional: String Quartet: Beethoven “Ode to Joy” First Dance: REM: At My Most Beautiful Michelle and John 07 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Lisa O'Dwyer duo 3 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 29 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 32 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 61 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Lisa O'Dwyer duo 4 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Michelle and John 8228 Photography ~ Lisa O'Dwyer Special little personal touches were added to the day such as making our own table plan, Vellum Candle holders for Table Numbers and home made Wedding Favours.

The day was made up of numerous special moments. From arriving at the church and seeing the smile on John’s face when he turned around, the special words that were said in the speeches, to seeing all the guests enjoying themselves throughout the night. All the memories of the day come together to make an unforgettable special day." I love Michelle's comment about relinquishing control on the day. It is very true when you come out the other side that you forget what wasn't quite right on the day and actually enjoyed every part of it - even the unplanned parts! A huge thanks to Lisa for submitting this wedding today...
