Christmas is filled with family and friends, happiness and celebration, warm smiles and laughter. In between the excitement of Christmas day and New Year there was no couple that could bring this more than Sean and Aideen.
Sean is the epitome of a gentleman, handsome, kind and welcoming. There are few words to describe Aideen that would do her any justice, a strikingly beautiful yet modest girl, organised yet relaxed, quiet yet full of life, together they make such a beautiful couple that they wouldn't be out of place in a fairytale.
The tears as Aideen walked up the aisle to stand by Sean showed the enoromity of their commitment, the laughter during the ceremony showed the perfection of it. With the widest of smiles, and the tightest of grips, Sean and Aideen were one as they looked at each other and said I do. So suited that even Aideen's lipstick couldn't stop Sean sealing their union with a kiss.
If their sheer excitement, glaringly obvious love and deepest of respect for each other were not enough to convince anyone of the suitability of Aideen and Sean then their light hearted jest of each other will. There is nothing more refreshing than to see a bride and groom both speak in front of their guests, this wonderful couple presented their speeches in such a relaxed and informal style during the drinks reception. Guests gathered together, chuckling and joking as the speakers told their stories but for me, the most beautiful moment of the day was watching Aideen speak of her happiness and make fun of her new husband, with Sean giggling and accepting every single tease, standing right next to her.
Aideen and Sean, you truly have something beautiful and very special. It is with great gratitude that I present your images to you, I thank you for your time, I thank you for your patience but most importantly I thank you for allowing me to share in your stories. Witnessing a union such as yours can make a person aim higher, try harder and love stronger, I hope you both, together, will forever have this effect upon those around you.
With all of my love,
