Brendan and Shaun have the perfect beginning to their story. A few years ago whilst walking down the street, they passed each other and their eyes met. On the count of three both looked behind and caught each other’s gaze again. They didn’t see each other for sometime after that, but with a somewhat suspect house viewing giving fate a helping hand, they were brought together again. Brendan works in property, Shaun was the viewer…who knows what happened with the house!
They celebrated their wedding at the magnificent Castle Leslie, County Monaghan with their close friends and family.
The boys looked beyond dapper in their individual tweed suits and their maid of honour westie Rosie looked beautiful with her custom made pearl collar and lead. Their groomsmaids were stunning in pewter and lace gowns.
Uncle Jack eldest resident of Castle Leslie (I think around 96 and also a hardcore clubber – no really – he went to Manumission for his 85th birthday!) made an appearance to wish Shaun good luck, and wanted to know where the bride was so he could wish her well too. A few glances and a quick explanation that there wasn’t a bride but another groom, without missing a beat he said “Ah, I see, I must go salute him!”
The boys entered from opposite sides of the ceremony room. Shaun accompanied by Rosie arrived from the main entrance hall, whilst Brendan crossed the gardens with his mother to enter via the veranda.
It was an emotional ceremony; with some of the most heart felt vows we have ever heard. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
After dinner the groomsmaids played video of a pre recorded game of Mr and Mr which gave everyone a good giggle. The night was finished off with an awesome surprise performance by the Innova Irish Dance Company and set by the incredible DJ Kenny K.
It was a pleasure to be a part of such a special day. Brendan and Shaun are complete gentlemen and were a joy to photograph.
Hope you enjoy!
