What happens when you mix an alternative wedding venue and an incredibly stylish real-life couple? Wedding magic, of course! For their Summer wedding, creative couple Hannah and Lewis dreamed up a beyond romantic day mixed with modern design elements that paired perfectly with the unique backdrop of Mount Druid in County Westmeath. Every moment was lovingly captured in the imagery by Kyrstin Healy and all the thoughtful and intentionally playful details (designed by the bride!) and the whimsy of their day is sure to put a smile on your face!
Bride Hannah hails from Co. Wicklow and Groom Lewis from Aberdeenshire in Scotland. The pair are currently based in Edinburgh where the couple first met when Hannah moved to Edinburgh to study.
Their summer wedding took place at Mount Druid, a beautiful purpose built and family run wedding venue in the village of Castletown Geoghegan in County Westmeath. Here, their two families came together for a wonderful day, honouring both the Irish and Scottish heritage of the couple and their love for one another.
Hannah and Lewis decided on a first look ahead of the ceremony to calm any last minute wedding jitters..
How unbelievably awesome does Hannah look in her polka dot Mason bridal jumpsuit by The Dress Tribe?!
She completed her bridal look with blue suede heels from Whistles, a soft tulle veil from Lola Varma, and a hairpiece which was lovingly hand crocheted by her talented Grandmother.
Lewis wore a traditional kilt featuring a blue wool jacket and waistcoat, together with a classic white shirt and sage green tie.
The couple said ‘I do’ at Mount Druid’s Tin Chapel which was decorated with vintage rugs, flowers, and colourful origami cranes, with 70 of their nearest and dearest in attendance.
When asked what made their venue ‘the one’ the couple tell us our favourite quote about a wedding venue yet! “The venue has a resident Jack Russell called Piddles – she is very affectionate and was definitely the biggest selling point. She can be seen in many of the wedding pictures being carried around like a baby!”
For their day, the couple wanted their wedding to be “basically be a big party and we definitely achieved that!”. The bride adds, “It was a lovely calm weekend in start contrast to a very chaotic run-up to the wedding – lots of red tape because of Covid and lots of guests dropping off but it all came together in the end. We loved seeing all of our loved ones having the best day and telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!”
The bridal party all wore their own mix and match outfits, and how great do they all look paired together!?

The reception was held inside the venue’s barn, which was filled with antique curiosities and bunting and festoon lights hung from the ceiling. All stationery and styling was done by the mega talented bride who owns her own contemporary stationery company called Stock.
The couple opted for a cake made from wheels of cheese. A wedding food trend we will never tire of!
The couple had originally planned to honeymoon in Russia, but due to restrictions that was no longer possible and instead are planning to head to Japan in May this year.
The couples advice to other engaged couples planning their day is to “not let it stress you out – it’s only one day and it will be so much fun. They add, “also, accept any help that is offered to you – everyone understands its a bit undertaking!”
Thanks so much to Hannah and Lewis for sharing their fun and contemporary Mount Druid wedding with us, and to Kyrstin Healy providing the beautiful imagery! There are even more photographs to swoon over in the gallery below.
