Brett & Ray's Wedding at Virginia Park Lodge, Ireland by This Modern Love

Brett & Ray's Wedding at Virginia Park Lodge, Ireland

How can we even begin to tell you about Brett and Ray's wedding? All the feels. All the laughs. All the llamas. 

Brett in America meets Ray in Ireland - you can check out their love story on youtube at MrMr and Brett the Intern. A few years of long distance dating and visa wrangling, and they're in Virginia Park Lodge in Cavan, throwing the funnest wedding party of all time, with friends and family wiping happy tears from their eyes.

Obviously we need to talk about llamas. And paint bombs. And lip-synched dance routines. And Richard Corrigan's mashed potato (which is the best mashed potato in the history of the universe). But the photos that I love the most from Brett and Ray's day are the two of them together, hanging around the house, helping each other get ready. The sofa, the jackets, the way they look at each other... 

Extra helpings of mashed potato for Michelle, planner extraordinaire at Waterlily Weddings.

This one is actually from 2016. Whoops! We're serially slow bloggers. But hopefully fast wedding photo deliverers, which might make you forgive us just a little bit :) More soon. Pinky swear.


Steph & Ronan's Wedding at Brotherhood Winery, New York. by This Modern Love

Steph & Ronan's New York Wedding at Brotherhood Winery

Steph and Ronan got married upstate New York at the Brotherhood Winery. I've rarely seen a dance-floor kick off like this one! Is this how it works stateside? If so, I'm all in! Or maybe the wedding goodness was down to this super close and welcoming New York Irish community, who became my surrogate family for a few glorious days last November...

A huge thank you to Steph and Ronan, and all the clan, for having me be part of your day.

Stephanie & Matthew's Wedding at Tullyveery House by This Modern Love

Stephanie & Matthew's Wedding at Tullyveery House

It's been a very long time since anyone gave us a laminated list of posed photographs for their wedding day (this did happen once!). These days we seem to make connections with the most lovely, laid-back people, whose weddings are our idea of heaven - simple, natural and fun.

Stephanie and Matthew's wedding at Tullyveery House was exactly this. 

Stephanie took a total punt and ordered her vintage wedding dress online... from New Zealand. And for this, she is our hero :)
