Sean and Karolin at Martinstown House

July 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The July weather didn't bode too well for Seán and Karolin's planned outdoor ceremony at Martinstown House. As we left Trim that morning to head to Kildare, the rain was pelting down but by the time we got there it had stopped. Karolin was determined to have her civil ceremony outside in the walled garden and thankfully the weather decided to cooperate. This was our first wedding in Martinstown and both Seán and Karolin were getting ready at the venue.
