Sarah who is a barrister, has an original designer fashion eye with a vintage twist. I think it is what you would call “Sarah Jane style”. She took her inspiration from  an “Elie Saab” dress which she adored from his Diamonds are Forever couture collection 2008. Mairead Neill, from Shannon made it for SJ. I adored it plus it was so comfy for the day.

Her shoes were Jimmy Choo from London.
Flowers- SJ hated lots of fuss and was determined to have simple flowers so her Mum & SJ came up with the idea. Thought they were very elegant. They were a simple Lily of the valley. Girl from Shannon did the flowers. People ruin Cratloe Church with so much fuss. Make up was by Naomh Kirwan who worked for Brown Sugar in Dublin but now is out on her own. Hair was Brenda Wall  from Shannon
Music -The fab harp playing was by the multi talented bride & Dolman String quartet.
