Aisling and Angus’s Wedding Day: A Serene Celebration by Lough Eske

In a picturesque corner of Ireland, nestled on the shores of the tranquil Lough Eske, a tale of love and joy unfolded as Aisling and Angus embarked on their journey of marital bliss. The setting was Harvey’s Point Hotel, a splendid haven that offered breathtaking views of the pristine Lough and the majestic Bluestack mountains. St Mary’s of the Visitation Church in Killybegs serving as the sacred backdrop for the exchange of their vows.

The Preparations

As the sun began to cast its golden glow across the rugged landscape, Aisling’s day began at her parents home. The talented Niamh Frain worked her magic, enhancing Aisling’s natural beauty with carefully chosen makeup. Meanwhile, Frances Norrby lent her deft touch to craft elegant and intricate hairstyles for the bridesmaids, turning each of them into a vision of grace.

Angus and his groomsmen embraced the tradition of their heritage, donning kilts that bore the rich tapestry of their Scottish lineage. A sense of camaraderie filled the air as they helped each other fasten tartan patterns and straightened ties. There was time for a wee whiskey before the boys had to leave for the church.
