“Here’s to the nights that turned into mornings, with the friends that turned into family.”
One of my all-time favourite weddings. From meeting Sean and Jen, to spending time with them on the day of their wedding, to meeting their wonderful family, and to editing their story… every part of this was a joy for me. It was a testament to keeping it simple and surrounding yourself with just your nearest and dearest. Everything was done by hand, everyone who was there had a part in it. Even the table that they dined upon was made by a family member and brought in for the day. Jen’s own father was the minister for their wedding which made it that little bit more emotional down in the Church in Dunfanaghy. It was one of those days where you just go with the flow and document what’s happening around you, without worrying about a schedule. Jen grabbed her trainers and we even took a hike to the most beautiful beach in donegal for a picnic in the afternoon (Well, it felt like the most beautiful beach to me on that day). There we had the best homemade shortbread biscuits I’ve ever tasted, and they opened a bottle of champagne. Sean and Jen chose a house on Horn Head for their celebration and I have to say, that wonderful coast is now imprinted on my heart forever. They watched the moon rise over Sheephaven bay and huddled in fleecy blankets with a few hot whiskies I’m sure before dinner. The Green Man Delicatessen in Dunfanaghy came up to the house and cooked the most delicious meal for everyone.
I’m forever thankful to Sean and Jen for having me there to tell this story.
