Joanne & Joseph returned from the UK for the wedding ceremony in Johns Lane Church on Thomas Street, Dublin & what a fabulous way to set the tone for their wedding guests. As well as choosing a stunning Church they also chose to decorate the entrance with an elegant floral display & we added an ivory aisle runner to ensure Joanne’s stunning Vera Wang wedding dress had a fitting catwalk.
Joseph chose to surprise Joanne with a helicopter ride from the Church to their chosen reception venue, Powerscourt Hotel in Enniskerry & Joanne loved every minute of it.
At Powerscourt Hotel the guests were greeted by the Cuban Allstars at an all-white drinks reception, with soft draping & a marquee in the Secret Garden to protect guests from the elements. A bespoke perspex mirrored table plan invited the guests to their designated tables in the ballroom.
The ballroom was draped with ivory fabric & we added a full lighting package including coloured pinspot lighting on each of the guest tables. Joanne chose a neutral palette of table linen, our majestic stone & majestic ivory linens being her favourite. The tables were then each adorned with trumpet vases to house stunning soft pink, blush & ivory floral designs by The French Touch.
The guests were wowed by the dulcet tones of Anthony Ward throughout dinner, not just your regular wedding pianist. After dinner came Joannes surprise for Joseph- the Opera waiters. Although it took some fibs from the Gotchacovered staff to get Joseph to return to the top table he was utterly stunned by the performance.
Joanne & Joseph both had another surprise in store for their guests, the kabuki curtain hidden within the room draping had been hiding a nightclub area. When the band The Firm announced that “Club JJ” was set to open the kabuki curtain fell, revealing a modern nightclub style area in salon three of the fabulous ballroom, where guests danced into the early hours.
The day after the wedding Joanne & Joey threw a more informal BBQ in the Secret Garden of Powerscourt Hotel, with rustic burlap linens, white garden chairs & jam jar floral centrepieces decorating the marquee. Guests were greeted with acoustic entertainment, magic tricks from Shane Black & fabulous sweet treats from Cocoa Moiselle. Gotchacovered redesigned Club JJ to host our VIP guests for the evening & another night of dancing ensued.
