Glittery Winter Wedding at Darver Castle
Naoise and Ben actually met at another wedding I photographed back in 2013 in Carlingford. I was so excited to photograph their beautiful Darver Castle wedding in early January. They were such a lovely couple whose relationship had been carefully documented by photos scattered throughout their house, my kinda couple! They both had so many ideas for the wedding and were both clearly so invested in making it a special day for their friends and family. It was the perfect wedding to start 2017 with!
I love a good winter wedding, sure it gets dark a bit earlier but you also have that lovely crisp golden light. Darver Castle was the perfect setting for this magical winter wedding. Even the one little hiccup only made the day even better. Just as they were half way up the drive way the car decided, No More and wouldn’t budge. In the long run it was actually perfect, Darver Castle has such a long and scenic drive way it was the perfect spot for photos with the sun setting in the background. Naoise and Ben were champs and took this little hiccup all in stride.
Lets just take a moment and admire Ben’s fantastic tie and pocket square combo, perfectly set off by the beautiful flowers from Fab Fleurs Wedding Flowers. A lot of grooms are happy to sit back and let the bride take the reins when planning the wedding, not Ben! He was full of ideas and was so excited about the whole planning process, he even handmade the decorations, more on them in a tick…
Ben was strongly influenced by the movie Up, which as anyone who has seen it knows it literally the most charming and lovely movie ever about two people to vow to stay together forever and travel the world. Ben’s tribute to this movie was a little Grape Soda pin just like they had in the movie.
