Lorna and Keith tied the knot on the 29th of August 2014 and celebrated in style at the Parkview Hotel, Co. Wicklow wedding venue. We love how they kept the engagement to themselves, so they could celebrate just them. So sweet..!

“Keith & I got engaged in Galway, we had done some window shopping that day and looked at a couple of rings for ‘a future date’. After the engagement, when we returned home, the frame on our mantelpiece said…”He asked, she said yes – 7th May 2014”. A really romantic aspect of our engagement was that we kept it to ourselves for 24 hours and enjoyed it, just the two of us!”
“Our wedding took place on the 29th August 2014 – we had always hoped for a wedding at the end of Summer or early in the Autumn.”
“The Parkview Hotel, was our first choice for a number of reasons. The hotel was in a great location for the majority of our guests, as they were travelling from Roundwood and Bray respectively. We had quite a large wedding and the Parkview Hotel, was able to cater for our 240 guests, which was very important to us. The hotel made catering for that number of guests look easy with impeccable food and fantastic service.”
“We were planning our wedding for around 15 months. I loved planning our wedding and even the groom secretly enjoyed it!!!”
“We stayed traditional with our menu. We went for:
Chicken & Mushroom Vol au vent
Turkey & Ham
Trio of desserts
Tea & Coffee
There is absolutely nothing that we could fault about the food we received on the day. Many of our guests are still raving about the dinner. It was a huge testament to the hotel that catering for that amount of guests received such high praise.”
“As we are sports fans, so our wedding was mainly themed on GAA, Soccer & rugby. From our wedding invitations being GAA tickets, to our table names an assortment of GAA, Soccer & Rugby stadiums and also our cake topper was centered around them. We also went for a subtle navy & pink colour theme. Our bridesmaids dresses were navy and we went for pink gerbera flowers.”
“The dress….well the dress didn’t arrive without its hiccups!! Found the dress of my dreams but unfortunately when the dress arrived in, I was in hospital as I had to have my appendix out (not on the agenda!). When I finally went to view the dress, there was a pull right across the front of the dress, so the dress had to go back to the manufacturers. The dress eventually arrived back in Ireland 2 weeks before our wedding and I had to get all my dress fittings slotted in with the seamstress in a week. I only got my dress 5 days before our wedding….so to say the stress levels were through the roof is an understatement. Thankfully when I did get to take home the dress, it was perfect.”
“If we could relive any part of the wedding day, it would be all of it! The day just flies in and before you know it, the day is over.”
