Rustic Summer Wedding in Ballyseede

This was such a lovely wedding we did back in May earlier this year for Fiona & Cole. They were married in the little Church Of Ireland Church next to Ballyseede Castle with the reception at the beautiful Castle.

This was a beautiful little church which did not need much decorating given it’s location. We used rustic wooden crates with wild garden blooms to dress the entrance
