Eight years ago, Olga and Fiachra were celebrating a 30th birthday bash in the picturesque town of Salthill, Galway. After a few good drinks – and a few bad jokes later – Fiachra asked Olga on a date for the following night. A few years later, a romantic staycation took them to the hills of Donegal where their relationship was cemented with a gorgeous proposal. As pictured above, Olga chose a beautiful summer fragrance by Armani with middle notes of may rose and freesia. A perfect choice given her choice of flowers.

In July of 2021, the couple tied the knot in the beautiful Wicklow countryside. Only a few teaser shots in, and the rouge and blush color palette has us completely hooked. Blossoming dusty pink and scarlet red roses perfectly pair Olga’s bridal PJs and plush Loeffler Randall bridal shoes – which we will certainly come back to!

Fiachra and his groomsmen were styled handsomely in suits from Louis Copeland & Sons. The tailored navy suits were a perfect choice for a summer wedding, with tan shoes and belt adding just the right amount of contrast.

The flower arrangements were cleverly placed in the main photo spots of the church. The aisle, the altar, alongside the bride and groom chairs, and of course the entrance. Two large floral and foliage pillars impressively climbed up the church entrance and spilled along the floor as the guests were welcomed into the ceremony. We do not doubt that each and every guest made use of and captured some incredible arrival shots. Just wait until you see the reception decor.

The beautiful bride tribe complemented the colour-pop florals with gowns from Coast in soft green shades. Each bridesmaid chose a different neckline with layers of tulles and sequins. The loose curls and draping bouquet ribbons added that bit extra glamor to their looks.

Third time’s a charm! Due to pandemic, Olga and Fiachra’s July date was actually their third attempt to wed. Olga explains: “With the first two dates canceled due to the covid restrictions. We were allowed 50 guests which allowed our nearest and dearest around us, along with our immediate families and some of our closest friends. That was the most important element of our day. With very few events on the social calendar, we hadn’t even seen many of our friends in a long time, so 50 people felt like 500 on the day! It turned out to be a perfect celebration!”

Where intimacy meets informal – the couple chose the charming BrookLodge & Macreddin Village for their wedding venue and took advantage of enchanting surrounding woodland for their photos. “We loved the relaxed vibe and the grounds of BrookLodge are stunning- they made for beautiful pictures. BrookLodge has all the qualities of a luxury rustic getaway, but without the fuss,” says the couple. The reception was held in the grand BrookHall, the gorgeous private wedding venue, with vaulted ceilings, a mezzanine bar, and a deck that overlooks a babbling brook.

It is evident that Olga has an appreciation for detail, through her impeccable choices thus far. Her wedding gown features a vintage yet the ethereal display of beaded embellishments, from the sheer bodice to the fitted flare. Purchased in one of our favorite boutiques Vintage Pearl Bridal, she accessorised the unique dress with a contemporary headband made up of clear quartz. Her shoes, glorious shoes, were beyond a statement in beautiful rose gold by Loeffler Randall.

Their vision was clear – and oh-so sweet! “I had a picture in my head of how I wanted the decor to look from the bold blush and red florals, to the dark, rich backdrop. Oodles and oodles of lit candles and course a pink kitch cake! Hey presto, Kate made it all happen! It was a dream come true. After that, all we had to do was turn up and have fun,” says Olga.

Hands up, we are suckers for special and personal touches. After all, a wedding should represent you both through the details. The mini cocktails acted as both favorites and place name cards. Genius and delicious! With the words ‘save me for the speeches’, no doubt the guests enjoyed them with a mighty toast to both Olga and Fiachra. This entire tablescape style was simply dreamy with over-spilling flowers, rattan bases, and tall tapered candles. Last Color Down, the creative designer behind the stationery crafted a visual story through wording and colours, creating a unique and personal experience for their guests.

The cherry on top has to go to the retro rouge wedding cake display, an insanely detailed iced delicacy! Framed with floral pillars and surrounded with pictures of their parents, we adore everything this image has to offer. This rouge and blush wedding theme is one we are certainly going to remember.

There was no way we were concluding this without picking the creative brains of the newlyweds, they say: “Relax, have fun, and soak up every moment. Don’t stress the small stuff! And choose suppliers that you can have fun with too . From the hair and makeup artists to your photographer and videographer, they are all a part of your day. Having sound people around you helps! Thankfully all of our suppliers were top-notch craic on the day.”
