Music, books, and vintage details were carefully strung throughout Lara and Mark’s Irish wedding at The Millhouse, each element perfectly reflecting them as a couple. Mark crafted mass booklets to look like Penguin Books, while Lara’s Claire Pettibone gown paired effortlessly with her ivory glasses and naturally curled hair. The foliage-filled marquee from LPM Bohemia was positively romantic as the newlyweds twirled and embraced to Love Affair’s Everlasting Love and Moat Hill Photography captured their larger-than-life love.
Lara and Mark
The Millhouse, Meath, Ireland
We used personalised Penguin Books for our mass booklets which were hand written by Mark in their entirety. All of our wedding invitations were individual reclaimed books. We included 6 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen to involve our closest friends.
I loved my Claire Pettibone wedding dress. I loved the colours in it and it was so light and easy to wear. I matched my dress with Ivory glasses (as I’ve always worn glasses) and neutral make up. Hair was left natural in curls. My shoes were personalised with the date and ‘Mrs Kelly’ on the sole.
Our colours we mainly pink and green. The wedding dress fitted in with both of these as did the cherry blossom and leaf table centres, along with the bridesmaids white tops and mint skirts.
The most important thing to us was having our day reflecting ourselves. We are both into the small details and spent months collecting little items which meant something to us in order to design our day. Music was a big theme within our wedding and we wanted to reflect that throughout. We also had a book theme for our decor.
