Beautiful mountains, lush green fields, and crisp, calm water surrounded Ben and Dee on their big day. The grounds of The Europe Hotel in Ireland created the perfect, romantic ambience for the couple to exchange vows. The bride wore a lace gown, and the groom dressed in a royal blue tuxedo. Their breathtaking surroundings and elegant attire allowed for truly astonishing photos by Katie Farrell Photography. Though their day was full of serious beauty, the couple added light-hearted jokes to their vows and offered guests a day filled with ice cream and other fun sweet treats. We absolutely love this gorgeous wedding!
Ben and Dee
The Europe Hotel, Killarney, Ireland
We wanted the day to feel relaxed and to be full of colour, yet remain simple and non-fussy throughout. We wanted to bring a modern feel to the traditional wedding by adding colour to as much as we could without going overboard, therefore keeping an easy sense of style to the occasion. This theme carried over into the wedding dress, which was beautifully elegant, and the bridesmaids dresses, which were completely unique, mixing a strong sense of style and colour, offering a look that was also very non-traditional. The Groomsmen all wore different shades of blue to complement the bridesmaids dresses, but also to work well with the Groom’s royal blue tuxedo, that took a modern twist on a classic look. Our favourite flower is the Gerbera, which exemplified everything about our vision for the day – vibrantly colourful, simple yet elegant at the same time. The most important thing was that we wanted the day to reflect us and our personalities, not traditions or conformities.
The ceremony itself, as it was the first time we got to share the room with each other alongside all of our favourite people. There was so much happiness in the room, you could literally feel it, it was a wonderful moment. On top of that we said our own vows adding a little humour into the moment, which our friends seemed to enjoy as much as we did!
