Deborah + Paddy
May 2017 | Castle Durrow
“I am from South Africa and Paddy is from Laois. We met at work – I accepted a three month secondment to the Mazars Dublin office and then never went back home!
He proposed on Easter weekend in 2016 whilst we were away in Lough Eske in Donegal.
Castle Durrow is beautiful and as soon as we saw it we knew it would be perfect for our wedding and perfect for a princess dress!
I did loads of research on photographers and found really positive reviews on Eric. We really liked his work and when we met him we found him really friendly, easy going and professional.
Our tips for other couples is to take time researching your suppliers and meeting them in advance – only work with suppliers that you are comfortable with. Also, the day really does fly by so pick a great photographer to capture those memorable moments!
Two weeks honeymoon – split between a safari at Madikwe Game Lodge in South Africa and Mauritius. The highlight was definitely South Africa!
