It all started in 2006 in a 6th year Math’s class for Sibéal and Rob. Their teenage romance blossomed into a beautiful relationship and their mutual zest for life led them to travel Asia and Australia in 2011. By 2012 they had fallen in love with beautiful Australia and decided to settle in Sydney for five and a half years.
Rob proposed on a weekend break in Tasmania and they planned to come back to Ireland not only to get married but to return home for good.
This wedding was a ceremony of two beautiful people committing their lives together as well as an emotional welcome home to Ireland that they had left so many years ago.
To say that all this was so evident on the faces of family and friends would be an understatement.
The excitement started to build up in both Sibeal’s and Rob’s homes as they were getting ready and once at the beautiful St Sylvester’s Church in Malahide, it was evident that the guests were so appreciative to have these two back in their lives again.
The reception followed in the fabulous Bellinter House in Navan. For portraits we made the most of what Bellinter House has to offer and walked all over the grounds ending with final shots in a few of their uniquely designed rooms.
Speeches were filled with jokes and laughter followed by an amorous First Dance under the stars on the grounds of Bellinter. Sparklers, Candles and John Legend created a romantic scene for Sibeal and Rob to dance together for the first time as husband and wife. Don’t even get me started on the Father and Daughter dance that followed!
The day was magic from beginning to end. Welcome home Sibeal and Rob. Wishing you a wonderful life together.
