WeddingWire Q&A with Naoimh
What is your ideal wedding style?
Rustic with a touch of elegance. My dream wedding is under the stars with beautifully decorated farmhouse tables, twinkling string lights, romantic candles, and tons of pretty flowers. That said, I'll happily set up shop in a historic building or traditional barn, because in Ireland having a roof is always a good idea.
Dream honeymoon location?
Basically anywhere adventurous with unique wildlife, like South Africa or the Galapagos.
What was (or would be) your first dance song?
I've talked about this with my partner and we've both decided on taking the classical music route with something timeless and romantic like "Clair de Lune." Although when it comes to learning choreography, we may default to something more suited to our abilities, like the "Macarena."
Favorite celebrity wedding look?
I'm obsessed with Pippa Middleton's gorgeous floral lace wedding dress designed by Giles Deacon. There's something so graceful about a high neck and capped sleeves, and the intricate detailing layer-upon-layer is just stunning.
