This treat-filled wedding day must have been an absolute joy to attend!

Some Irish couples wouldn't dream of hosting their wedding in mid-February, given that it's often when we're subjected to the coldest day of the year, but the lovebirds at the centre of today's real wedding prove that it can be done, and that the results can be drop-dead gorgeous to boot! Úna and Kevin's Dublin city winter wedding was all about ease - they arranged a church ceremony, drinks reception and evening reception in three different venues, all within walking distance of each other - but they also put lots of thought into food, drinks and styling. This means that, not only were their guests spoiled rotten on the day, but the photographs captured by Livia Figueiredo are outrageously cool! Ready to take a closer look? Let's go!

You know we love a green bridesmaids dress around here, and this rich shade of emerald green is just perfect for winter!

Úna and Kevin tell us that they met in college in UCD, just over ten years ago. "The timing didn't really work out for a long time," Úna says, "and over the following five years, we lived on different continents, down to different counties, and then in different cities in Ireland. We always had a spark and sporadically stayed in touch over the years. Over time, things just fell into place."

Kevin chose one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland as the backdrop to his proposal - the Sliabh Leigh cliffs in Donegal. "It was a genuine surprise," Úna remembers. "We had spent the weekend in the Gaelteacht in Donegal and Kevin insisted we stop off at Sliabh Leigh on the way home. It was a really lovely moment, and Sliabh Leigh will always be so special to us, we named the top table at our wedding after it."
