Wedding Photographer Wexford Chris Dolinny present:
Story of Lucy and James by Dee Finnerty from Irish Independent Magazine:
Lucy, originally from Yorkshire in England, and James from Wexford. They met 13 years ago while working in the same pub in Phitsborought, Dublin. In 2013, just before they bought their home, James asked Lucy’s father for his blessing to propose.
However, it was nearly two years later that James produced a handmade wooden engagement ring. Which he had secretly been working on in the couple’s shed.
Lucy and James had a Catholic ceremony in Bellevue Church, Ballyhogue, co. Wexford. Before continuing their day at nearby Wilton Castle. The pair wanted a relaxed day with a garden-party feel, and chose Wilton Castle. So that they could have a unique venue where they could add their own personal touches.
They also chose Chris as a wedding photographer wexford, because of his unique photographic reportair style. Unobtrusive and very easy going working style and good sense of humor was great addition to the day.
The couple designed their own menu which included their favorite foods with Red Pepper Catering and also had a four-tier cheese stack with a pork pie tower in lieu of a cake.
Lucy and James mase everything from the direction signs, centrepieces and table plan, to booklets, and a family tree photos. Lucy’s dad made the pork pie stand while her mother made cutlery pouches from hessian and lace. James crafted a special box for the wedding rings to also hold the wooden engagement ring.
When she couldn’t find her ideal wedding dress in the shops, Lucey decided to have one custom made online, while her bridesmaids wore Grecian-style maxi-dresses in mink.
Lucy and James celebrated their honeymoon exploring Vietnam and Cambodia on a three-week adventure.
