A Dusky Pink and Cherry-Hued Tinakilly House Wedding

A Dusky Pink and Cherry-Hued Tinakilly House Wedding

This country house wedding was a masterclass in modern elegance. Sinead and Neil tied the knot at Tinakilly Country House Hotel in Co. Wicklow and their celebration was coloured in an amorous palette of dusty pink, red and cream with pops of black. They wanted their special day to be relaxed, energetic and big on fun factor.

As you’ll see from the stunning images by Michelle Prunty Photographer, it was that and so much more. Featuring contemporary style, moody blooms, a classic convertible, a first dance under the stars and more, let’s explore the magic of their autumn wedding below.

So let’s begin by getting to know Sinead and Neil more. They are both from Meath and they met in school, 15 years before the big day!

Wow! How breathtaking was Sinead’s moody bouquet which included super light pink roses, creamy carnations, and red boat orchids.

The couple love autumn so they knew they wanted to tie the knot at that time of year instantly. “We managed to get one of the hotter days of the year, so that was an added bonus! We weren’t keen on any favours or fuss, as our main priority was just to have our favourite people together to help us celebrate and make the day so special.”

Sinead’s bridal look was contemporary and wonderfully chic. She looked sensational wearing an off-the-shoulder long-sleeve Newhite gown which had an elegant draped bust which she accessorised with a cathedral veil, pearl drop earrings and cream court heels.

She travelled to the aisle in serious style with her father in a MGA Roadster in a sophisticated bottle green shade. We bet that is a journey they will cherish forever.

The ceremony was held at St Mary’s & St Michael’s Church in Rathdrum and the styling included a dazzling floral church doorway display of delicate, and utterly dramatic, pink baby’s breath.

Whimsical clusters of baby’s breath, roses and carnations lined the pew ends bringing an air of undeniable romanticism to the service.

Sinead and Neil picked Scaffolding by Seamus Heaney for their gorgeous ceremony which is an adored ceremony reading that’s laced with wisdom, sentiment and symbolism.

The couple toasted to their happily ever after with bubbles upon arrival at the country house. You can take this as your sign to invest in a pair of wedding sunglasses too. How super stylish are Sinead’s Prada shades?

Just 40 minutes from Dublin, not only does the venue boast gorgeous mountain and sea views but the grounds are magical so couples will be spoiled with choice when it comes to their wedding photos.

Neutral bridesmaids dresses are perfect for all seasons, as her ladies proved with their lustrous satin champagne gowns by Jenny Yoo. Neil and his groomsmen looked as suave as could be in sharp black tuxedos and they all wore boat orchid buttonholes.

There was a long list of reasons why the couple fell head over heels for their wedding venue. They share, “The setting, the traditional style of the house and its surrounds just sold itself, the food and the fact there were enough rooms for everyone to be able to stay was so important to us. The staff were also fantastic on the day and made everything so easy!”

115 of their nearest and dearest joined them to celebrate their special day and no doubt they were enchanted by the reception space which had everything from sparkling chandeliers to lush ivy and twinkly fairy lights.

From the table plan to the the main table, baby’s breath was the star player in the styling. The maroon table card numbers offset the ethereal florals exquisitely.

We were curious to know what advice the couple have for those planning their big day. They explain, “All the planning is done so try to put your trust in your work and suppliers and just let go and enjoy it. It goes by way too fast! Soak up the morning too, it’s such a special and fun time getting ready with your nearest and dearest by your side! Overall, we tried not to stress about the small stuff and to plan as if the wedding was sooner than it was so that way we could really enjoy the lead up.”

Sinead and Neil had their first dance under the stars with sparklers bathing the unforgettable moment in a dazzling glow. Choosing A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay as their first dance song only made it dreamier. Arthur Band kept the dancefloor packed all night long and there were some questionable dance moves on display, we’re told!

A massive thank you to Sinead, Neil and Michelle Prunty Photography for sharing this immensely stylish Tinakilly House wedding with One Fab Day. You can see more beautiful pictures in the gallery below.
