WELL..Where do we bloody start with this one?
It's no secret we get to be apart of some pretty amazing weddings and this one was definitely no exception! We had the absolute PLEASURE of being apart of Merran and Ryan's wedding held at none other than VAMP Lisa McGuigan Wines.
Do NOT ask us how she managed to convince Lisa to even host a wedding there - this is not something she does, well..like ever.. but OMG aren't we grateful she made the exception!
First up, a HUGE thank you to Merran and Ryan for allowing to to be apart of their amazing day, we're so chuffed they chose us!
We managed to ask Merran a few questions about her day.. here's what she had to say!
What made you choose VAMP as your venue of choice?
The venue speaks for itself really. We love the uniqueness, the architecture, and furnishings. We were drawn to the idea of how romantic and moody it would be for a wedding. It matches perfectly with our own personal style and personalities.
What was your inspiration behind the wedding direction and overall style of the event?
We wanted it to be one of a kind - timeless, with a mix of emotion and some classic elements. When making our decisions, we wanted to enhance the venue without going overboard or over-styling. There's a lot of black (which is our favourite colour!) so we knew that would bring the drama. The florals and candles helped to soften it a little and also create intimacy and romance. We only had 70 guests so it was the perfect setting.
Importance when choosing your vendors?
I was impressed seeing vendors' work on social media and word of mouth. That's a big selling point, but also finding someone you click with and can be honest with. Good communication is crucial too - from when you first enquire all the way through to the very end when it's all over. I feel like it's such a personal experience to go through and we have made some new friendships once it's all said and done - so cool!
Anything you wish you had done differently?
Having our ceremony set up inside from the get go, we only brought it in off the grass due to the rain. It was a little but of rush and a tad stressful leaving it until an hour before the ceremony to make the decision. It worked out so beautifully and for the best having it the way we did. A blessing in disguise. Oh and I wish I ate more food throughout the evening - it was delicious!
