The Wedding of Yvonne and Evaldas “Efka” Cekanauskas
Yvonne and Efka crystalised their beautiful relationship on 25th June 2016 with their stunning wedding at the Church of the Nativity in Kilmessan followed by a reception in the elegant and luxurious surroundings of the Station House Hotel.
Having spent the previous six, wonderful years together, purchasing their house and creating a happy loving home with their beautiful daughter Keelin, tying the knot was the natural next chapter for Yvonne and Efka.
Making sure to follow proper protocol in these matters, Efka first ensured he had Keelin’s blessing by asking her for her Mother’s hand in marriage! Upon securing this important endorsement, Efka and Keelin set about planning the proposal. True to the spirit of fun (and practical joking!) that pervades their family, Yvonne was surprised on her birthday with her stunning engagement ring hidden away in a Pennies bag!
The picturesque, little Church of the Nativity hosted the charming ceremony, attended by the couple’s wide group of family and friends, including Efka’s family who arrived from his home country of Lithuania bringing with them an abundance of laughter, energy and joy. Onward to the reception at the Station House Hotel, the day was a kaleidoscope of beauty and cheer, love and laughter, not to mention more than a few tears (my own included!) throughout the incredibly poignant speeches.
To have been invited to capture this incredible wedding was truly an honor and I am thrilled that I was part of such a special day for Yvonne and Efka. To say my task was made all the easier by working with such a beautiful couple would be to understate it.
Yvonne and Efka, you are a gorgeous couple and I wish Keelin and you both every happiness throughout your lives together.
“A month on today from our wedding, and we are so grateful that we have such amazing photographs to remind us of what a great day it was. We are delighted to have found such a great photographer, who was so easy to work with, and was so accomodating with regard to our requests. Dena’s cool, calm and collected personality allowed us to feel confident that she knew exactly what she was doing and wow did she deliver! From our first meeting to our last, Dena was such a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering booking a photographer for their wedding! Thank you Dena!!” Yvonne Davis Cekanauskas
