I hear it all the time “What do we do if it’s raining?” My answer is usually the same; “It never rains on me, that’s included in the price.” Followed by “Well it never rains all day and if it does let’s just go do it.”
Amy and Alan were even braver than I was, it was 100% pouring down but Amy was determined to have photos around the grounds regardless. They love Rathsallagh so much and I can see why, it’s genuinely one of my favourite venues. We were going to do it, out it the rain, stick to plan A, make the most of the time of the day, skip the receiving line, go off for a photo walk and come back to a reception in full swing to enjoy it with guests and that’s exactly what we did!!! And then it stopped raining!
Amy saying she didn’t care and let’s go do it now partially scared the bejesus out of me but mainly delighted me!!! What a feckin rock star and LOOK at the beautiful light, beautiful grounds in their photographs which they love, rain was not an issue. YOu can see in a few images that Alan’s jacket was pretty wet and Amy has rain drops caught in her hair which I happen to think looks soooo beautiful and romantic! Even poor Richard Speedie of Big Day films had to record under a brolly!
Anyway this post is not all about the rain but like, it’s a big point I wanted to make for ages. You will be grand if you get a bit wet, the bottom of the dress will get a bit dirty but you didn't buy a full length dress just to hold it off the ground all day and have no nice photos of it it all it’s glory. You will wear the dress once but your photographs are forever and Amy and Alan love theirs.
I had a blast with these two and absolutely loved the wedding and getting to know them! Whiskey shots after signing the register was a big highlight!! Richard Speedie of Big Day films put together a slideshow of a few highlights for everyone to see before dinner and it was amazing, everyone loves it, it was so emotional! Well done Richard!
Huge thanks to Amy & Alan, I’ll be stalking your insta to follow your adventures of married life and new beginnings!!
Thanks so much for letting me share your day!!
