It was by pure luck and happenstance that I got to meet Benny and Eithne. Eithne had entered a draw at the Ultimate Wedding Live bridal show to win a free engagement shoot. Luckily for her and me she was announced the winner! I honestly couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to work with for a morning on the sun soaked Dun Laoghaire pier. I had a brilliant time and both Benny and Eithne were great fun and can we all just take a moment to see how gorgeous Eithne looks even though she was battling hay fever! To date one of my favourite couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
Eithne was good enough to share with me their engagement story, all I can say is Benny is a true romantic! He chose that ring himself by the way.
Benny proposed while we were on a vary rare child free break away in Limerick for the May bank holiday weekend. I had NO idea! If you can believe it I went to book the same hotel in the same city for the same weekend! So he had to tell me we were going away that weekend as I would’ve double booked! Great minds think alike haha! He sent me to the spa to get a massage and manicure, and I still didnt suspect anything as my birthday was the following week so just thought it was an early birthday pressie! It wasn’t until I came back and he had the whole suite filled with candles and was on one knee that I knew! An immediate YES!! and was followed by a romantic meal and home the following day to celebrate with friends and family.
Eithne and Benny are getting married next winter in Barberstown Castle and I wish them and their daughter all the luck in the world! Thanks again for everything guys. X
