Patrice & Philip’s Darver Castle Wedding

I love grooms like Philip, he remembered everything we had talked about when we met before the wedding, he brought along the champagne corks he had kept from when he proposed to Patrice in Spain, he sent the girls embroidered dressing gowns the morning of the wedding,he made sure the bridal party were well fed and watered en route from the ceremony to the reception and most importantly when we worried about Patrice’s heel’s getting caught in a grate he threw her over his shoulder and carried her to the car!

I love brides like Patrice, she was cool and calm in her Mum and Dads house in the morning, she even donned a mitt and made sure Mum’s legs were looking perfectly bronzed – she’s a professional in the industry so needless to say the makeup was fantastic and stayed put all day, she smiled and laughed her way through the day and between the pair of them they made my job very easy.

Easy knowing these two are party people, Philip manages the biggest nightclub in Dundalk and it was thanks to a lift home after work 4 years before that we got a fantastic day out. They sang, danced ( no gold leotards for Philip this time though) and threw a shindig to remember for all their friends and family. It’s a good job they got all this out of their system back then as there are quieter times ahead- not being ones to do things by halves I’m delighted to hear that they’re expecting identical twins later this year… whoop whoop! I’m tickled pink for you both!
