Real Weddings: Victoria and Cormac’s ethereal white wedding in Dublin – image.ie

Afterwards, our reception was also in the Merrion Hotel. We kept our guest list small and invited only our closest friends and family, so we never felt like our wedding had to be anything but exactly how we wanted it. We tried not to get caught up in pleasing others and picked our favourite foods, our own style of music and performers. We chose quality over quantity in all aspects of our day and really treated those we love (and ourselves too!). The staff at the Merrion, especially Susie Hopkins, were amazing and the service was flawless.

Kavanagh Ensemble played the strings for our ceremony and champagne reception and Suzanne Carla was our evening entertainment. Suzanne sang accompanied by piano, guitar and double bass, delighting everyone with her jazzy, unique style and fantastic voice. She did an impeccable job on our first dance song!

As The Merrion is part of such a gorgeous, restored Georgian townhouse with high ceilings, chandeliers, and ornate cornicing, we didn’t want to take too much attention away from the beautiful décor. We chose all-white florals, keeping them greenery-free as we wanted an ethereal, intensely white look.

We had candles glowing from every surface to create a soft atmosphere as the sun went down and a scented candle to burn throughout the rooms on the day (Trudon Atria). Every time I smell the candle it takes me right back to that moment when they opened the doors, and I began walking up the aisle. We hope to always keep one of the candles in our home to burn on anniversaries and special occasions and remind us of our wedding day.
