A few weeks ago we drove to Wexford to meet up with the lovely Wendy and Peter, who asked us to be apart of their wedding later this year. As this lovely pair live in the Scotland we said we would catch up with them next time they were here for a holibob. What a fantastic evening it was. We walked the grounds of the beautiful Johnstown Castle, went for a bite to eat in the fabulous Wexford town and then out to Curracloe beach to take in the last of the sunshine. Roll on the wedding, and more hilarious chats of lego, gin and subcrawls!!!

I am only sorry there was not time enough before now to share with you this fiery Connemara wedding. Our lovely pair Cormac and Sue chose the amazing location of Renvyle House to celebrate. Renvyle is a slice of heaven on earth, its beaches are made of dreams. As it was late in the year the surrounding hills and bogs of Tullyglass glowed warmly in shades of pumpkin and earthy crimson. The textures of the soft tall grasses and the crisp gorse with their fading coconut sent, against the tawny back drop were incredible. At the time I thought how wonderful to be wrapped up in a blanket of such proper Irish magic on your wedding day.

What do the Poppies do on their “Off Season?” We spend it catching up with the most important people in the world. Our friends and Family. Loved this weekend on the coast of Clare with our seriously great friends, sweet treats in The Ivy Cottage, amazing seafood in Linnanes, Bombay Sapphire and amazing views. “Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget ~ Anonymous”

I loved them. I loved this lady for asking us to do something different. I loved that we were having this top secret conversation on a magical volcanic island. I loved that no one knew! So the day after the wedding we pulled up to their hotel in our tiny rental car and kidnapped Sara and Tony for one lazy afternoon. It was beautiful. They were beautiful. So much so that it wasn’t a trash the dress, it was a rock that frock!

Oh bring us back to what was the best week of last year!!! Sara and Tony flew us out to the stunning volcanic island of Lanzarote to capture their wonderful intimate wedding. It was nothing short of a week of love and giggles! We met up with the couple an evening or two before the wedding. We sat on giant cushions surrounded by Moroccan lanterns watching the sun dance over the sea. We sipped on cocktails and chatted about the days that were to follow.
