The Station House Hotel Wedding | Meath Wedding Photography | Niamh&Stephen

I always like to ask my couple – How did you meet? And to hear the answer ‘ – I just came home one day to find him on my couch! ”. How excited can it be?! Would like to know their experience on the Big Day? You might find it really helpful when preparing for your wedding!

Niam& Stephen, please tell about your love story:

We met when I was in college and Stephen moved to Dublin for work. He was my roommate’s friend – I just came home one day to find him on my couch! Three years later we started dating, and three years after that he proposed quietly and romantically at home.

Describe your wedding planning process:

We were engaged for just over a year and a half, which gave us plenty of time to plan. We were very lucky to get lots of help from both our families and from the bridal party. Our best decision was to keep all the parts of the wedding at locations close to each other. It really helped to make the wedding feel laid back and relaxed.

Recap your big day for us:

I don’t even know where to start! The day was a big happy blur! The speeches were a real highlight; Stephen’s best man, his brother, made everyone cry. We were both so nervous about our first dance, but it ended up being a close and memorable (though not well choreographed!) moment. A real highlight was spending time with friends and family we don’t see as often as we’d like to.

What about the details?

We really wanted a relaxed wedding with good food and good music. The atmosphere in the Station House Hotel (co Meath) was perfect for this, and our fantastic band kept everyone dancing.

What’s the best advice you can give to a bride and groom planning their own wedding?

Take your time with the planning and try to enjoy it. It can be stressful, but it’s fun too! Oh, and try to eat something the morning of the big day!

What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage?

Nothing, although the first time I introduced Stephen to someone as my husband was a bit of a shock. Sometimes I still have to remind myself not to call him my boyfriend!
