Real Irish Wedding: 27th & 28th April 2013 St, Hotel Meyrick, Eyre Square, Galway City

The couple

Work colleagues for a year, Pete and Lauren started dating when Lauren moved to a different department. Pete proposed while they were lying in bed one morning with a gesture that Lauren describes as ‘simple and romantic.’

Wedding reception venue

“We had originally selected a different venue, but when we came over to Ireland in November to do wedding planning, it just wasn’t what we wanted,” Lauren reveals. “When we went into Yes Flowers, Raytus and Mark suggested we take a look at Hotel Meyrick and we just loved it! Siobhan at Hotel Meyrick was like a wedding planner for us. She helped us choose vendors and made sure the venue and food were perfect for us.”

Wedding theme

Simple and elegant. The flowers and mirrored ballroom in Hotel Meyrick really helped us set the stage.”

Wedding dress

Lauren’s lace mermaid style wedding dress was by Monique Lhuillier dress and was the first one she saw; “I only tried on three. I loved it because it was just so comfortable and elegant. The lace was so intricate and beautiful and it was easy to dance in.”
