I had the incredible honour of being Nikki and Steve’s photographer when they eloped in Ireland in the stunning Mount Juliet Estate. It was something new to me, to be one of the few present as two people promised themselves to each other forever, I felt honoured, humbled and very excited to be part of their elopement! Nikki and Steve were a really special couple, and their love was very clear for all to see, which made the whole experience all the more touching and special.
Nikki got ready in Mount Juliet Estate assisted by the lovely Alma, she was as cool as a cucumber, you’d never know she was moments away from marrying her fiancé. With only me, a celebrant and a couple of witnesses present. Her dress was beyond stunning, which was even more impressive when she told us she had carried it across most of Europe in her suitcase!
They held their ceremony in the beautiful walled ceremony of Mount Juliet Estate, for an autumn day it was unseasonably mild and sunny. Steve waited patiently while Nikki took the biggest walk of her life up the path to him…
Their first kiss as man and wife, but certainly not their last! These two were so incredibly earnestly in love it genuinely warmed your heart. After their vows we took a wander to the Secret Garden for some couple photos, they were so relaxed and easy going it was hardly like work at all, more a fun ramble through a garden with some good friends!
It was a brief but completely fantastic 2 hours that I spent with Nikki and Steve, they are what make me love my job so much, two people are so earnest and genuine in their love for each other, all you can do is smile when your around them, like kitten videos on youtube, its good for your soul 😉
