Evonne Bruton & Jonathon Holland tie the knot.
Dress from White Orchid.
Photos from Roslyn Byrne, Couple.ie"It was the worst gale blowing Ireland has had in years and we were having a wedding ceremony in a marquee!"
It was the worst wind and rain Ireland has known in 91 years, but Evonne Bruton and Jonathan Holland decided they were not going to let the elements ruin their big day. Proving that no matter what the weather brings, with the love of your life by your side and an easy going attitude, it is always possible to have the wedding of your dreams.
"Friends had to stop their car on the way to the wedding to move a tree off the road, and there wasn't a hope of our helicopter making it! We kept thinking the weather would get better but it only got worse as the day wore on," Evonne remembers.
Their relationship has always had a good amount of excitement; the couple met through a good mutual friend who thought they would make a great couple. After much persuasion, Evonne allowed her number to be given to Jonathan and after even more persuasion, Jonathan called her.
"From the first conversation as I sat in Pearse Street Station, trying to have a conversation over the moving trains, we got on well. Our first meeting was in Café en Seine on Wednesday, 26th January 2005, the huge wave of emotion that we felt as we met for the first time was incredible. We both knew that this was something very real and very big." Evonne says.
These seating cards are all so jolly and fun and , perhaps more importantly, are great for those who don't want to spend too much on the little things. Deligation is the key to good wedding planning so get some of your family/friends involved too!!!
Lilac Wedding (l). These double as a little inexpensive wedding favour. Wrap in a little green bow and attached two strips of card -one with the name, one with the table number. Little seats are so darling (r). Probably the cutest thing we found this week, these seats are a perfect way to show your guests to theirs. Made with a little pice of card, the names are on the back of the chair, the table numbers on the bums. Sweetness.
Briefcases and bags. (l) Corkage. (r) Use old corks (or new ones if you've enough!) to place your seating cards. Cut the bottom so they stand upright. Chic.
Handwritten. (l) Get some of your freinds to write the place settings. The more unusual the writing the better. Just make sure they all use the same pen colour to give it continuity! Peg Pinching.(r) If you're having an outdoor blessing before your dinner, why not display your place settings with strings and pegs. You can use domestice pegs or try the WeddingsOnline.ie shop for other colours.

I came across lots of blogs for preparation inspiration. I found this invitation;
Photo Invite on blisstree.com that reminded me of a certain college romance. To quickly suppress the painful ebbing memories I knew would follow the cute, transient passport-photo part of the relationship I went a'searching for the most kitsch weddings invites on the 'net. Here's what popped up;
Make them work for it
Like getting an exam in the Post
I bought a Diana+ camera about a year ago with the full intention of becoming a succesful art house photographer. After reading the manual and procrastinating more than one should have the ability to however I confined it to the top of my wardrobe praying never to gaze upon its retro plastic body again.
This weekend, while cleaning out my room in a desperate attempt to get my life together, I came upon my Diana+, lying on her side, like an old forgotten TV starlett from a 60s drama series, the sunken sidekick who never got the break she deserved.
Long story short, I bought her some 120 film, took her out to the countryside and started snapping.
Today I'm going to Gunns on Wexford street to get her developed. Wish me luck and stay tuned.
