Introducing Francesca and Mark’s Carton House Wedding
It all started in the slipper and sock section in Fat Face clothing store…..the rest is history…..
Following a beautiful engagement in a poppy field, they started their preparations for the big day by choosing the venue.
Francesca & Mark live in the UK but Francesca’s ancestral home is the magnificent Carton House in Maynooth. It took very little consideration that this was the venue for them. The rest of the planning was smooth sailing as they had a really good idea of what they wanted.
All about the wedding day…
“It was just magical from the time I woke up until the very end.”
The words I would use to describe this wedding are ‘simple exquisite’. As you will see from the pictures, everything was so beautifully put together. A family friend did the flowers and the majority of the family were involved in some shape or form. A special nod goes to the cuteness of the flower girls and mini best man!
As as special touch, tables were named after those who couldn’t join Francesca and Mark for the celebrations including Mark’s father and Francesca’s brother. It was such a lovely touch.
I always ask Brides and Groom’s for their parting advice and I just loved Francesca and Mark’s response…..
“Start planning straight away as time runs away”
“Remember it’s your day, not great Aunt Maudes!”
“Make it enjoyable not a chore”
“Make time for just the two of you on the day, observe what is going on around you, it goes in a flash”
