Louise Enright wed Matthew Trousdale on March 23, 2019 in St. John’s Church in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry and continued their wedding celebrations at the bespoke Listowel Arms Hotel in Listowel. Louise wore a stunning piece from Finesse Bridal Wear, and loved it. Their photographer was Amanda O’Neill Photography and Flowers by Caroline from Ballylongford provided the floral arrangements.
Not only was it their wedding day but Matt and Louise christened their beautiful 14 week old daughter during their wedding ceremony also. It wasn’t your run of the mill wedding.
“We didn’t follow the traditional posed wedding photos. Amanda captures everything without us knowing she was there. We went and had a drink in our local pub straight after the wedding ceremony and met loads of our guests there.”
Louise and Matthew moved home from the UK so there was a great mix of both countries at the wedding and their band No Strings Attached provided a super mix of modern and traditional Irish music keeping everyone entertained.
To honour Matt’s dad who isn’t with them anymore, they had a bottle of his favourite beer open on the top table. Louise and Matt were also blown away by the bride’s two nieces surprising them with a solo music session and solo Irish dance.
“The Listowel Arms couldn’t get better; it was perfect. We had no stress; it was all so relaxed and we enjoyed it so much. The little touches to the reception were amazing; we only got to see them properly when we saw our photos. The food was top notch and everyone was so impressed. Even the build-up and the meetings we had were all so good and made us feel like our day was going to be well and truly looked after which it was.”
