Eimear & Hugh's Wedding at Borris House, Co. Carlow / by This Modern Love

Eimear & Hugh - Borris House Wedding

Hugh was quite surprised when a stranger FaceTimed him, while he was doing his laundry after work one night, wanting to talk about his wedding. 

But he went with the flow, and we chatted about his plans while he put socks into the washer..

Everything made a bit more sense when Eimear, who had arranged the call, made her way home through the traffic.

And that really, was the perfect beginning to this story. The soundest of people, generous with their time, mighty craic, no fuss.

You can see from the photos what a brilliant day it was. Piano duets, enormous grins, kids weaving in and out, cutting the cake with an architects' T-square, Eimear's mam's wedding dress... Gold. Freaking. Boots.

This is Borris House by the way. Very nice it is too!

Eimear & Hugh - thanks so much for having us. We'll miss our FaceTime laundry sessions...
