Introducing a multi cultural Tinakilly House Wedding
Emer and Syed have some story to tell. A beautiful red-haired Irish girl who who used to teach Bollywood dancing in Ireland, (how cool is that!) meets the handsome Syed when she was in India trying to source some Bollywood costumes. Syed, an absolute gent, helped her out on her quest and the two of them just clicked and started a fairytale romance. Now, Emer and Syed are happy here in Ireland and Emer tells me her Bollywood days are now over as she is a teacher but even better they have their oh-so-cute daughter Aliza. Syed is quite the entrepreneur and runs so many businesses here in Ireland, I could not keep up with him. They both agreed they were going to have a multi cultural Tinakilly House Wedding in County Wicklow.
Syed and Emer had sourced a lot of the little details, decorations and props for the day from India for their Tinakilly House wedding. Most brides and grooms on their wedding day only get one wedding outfit but Emer and Syed had two! With the idea of mixing the two cultures together, they planned to wear traditional Irish style wedding clothes for the ceremony and later during the evening change into their Indian style outfits. Emer looked stunning from the offset, thanks to make-up by Amy Sleator and hair by the Powder Room Girls.
They had planned an outdoor ceremony at Tinkailly House but with the weather being changeable, they decided to move indoors to the Pavillion. Syed did not take too long getting ready so had time to enjoy going for a spin in his Mustang with the lads before the ceremony kicked off. The ceremony was action-packed with ring warming, rose exchange, candle lighting and ring exchanging, all to wonderful music by the Dublin String Quartet. We were hoping to take photos outside around the grounds of Tinakilly House but the rain set in and we all had to rush inside. We were working alongside JM Video. We managed to grab them for a few intimate portraits before they enjoyed a snack supplied by the Spice Village. We loved the Shisha Pipe set up which all the guests enjoyed. Even Emer and Syed gave it a go before entering into the Pavillion Room to the sounds of Dhol, a large indian drum. Action packed was the theme for the day, with belly dancing and speeches before the evening entertainment even started. Emer and Syed’s wedding at Tinakilly House was like a house party. We were blown away by the Bhangra Dancers who got all the crowd up to give it a go! And brilliant to see Emer showing us her moves with her girlfriends. Syed and his mates were no mean movers themselves. I was amazed the dance floor didn’t collapse with the big crowd up on the floor. And with two wedding outfits, I understand they getting two wedding albums! One from us and one from the indian photographers on the day too. So these newleyweds, don’t do things by halves!!!!!
