We hate Pop Up’s too, can you help us get rid of it!?
Our project is established but our site is new and although we have weddings specialists in over 60 countries it’s going to take time to get everyone on the ship. If you can’t find exactly what you want please get in touch and if you are an awesome wedding specialist or you know people you want to recommend let us know.
A country known for its astounding raw beauty, mischievous folklore, love of Guinness and the shamrock, Ireland is up there for me as a wedding location.
Steeped in romantic and religious history the culture and traditions are still as relevant today as they were centuries ago. The tying of the knot for example is an Irish tradition, as is wearing a blue dress (it is Queen Victoria we have to thank for the modern white wedding frock) and bell ringing to ward off malicious spirits. Needless to say, the mix of the Celtic and the Roman Catholic Church has inspired much more than the typical 'church' wedding ceremony.
'The luck of the Irish' will definitely be with you if you want a charming, rustic or rugged setting, with beautiful buildings available, ancient churches and all manner of homes, pubs, restaurants and venues that can fulfill your individual wedding needs. But really, all you need in Ireland is your friends and family, a blazing fire and a keg of the black stuff to guarantee a good old craic...oh and you'll need a registered venue at some stage in the day.
If you want to get married in a venue other than the Registry Office or a Church you must arrange to have it approved. Venues such as marquees, private dwellings or the open air are not acceptable...however; as you know we like to suggest a way around that kind of nonsense. Why not get the legal side of your day all tied up before celebrating your love and union amongst some of Ireland’s most stunning scenery, lord knows there is plenty of it!
Ireland is renowned of course for its moody skies, roaring waves and winds that can sweep you off your feet; but if you want to feel connected to the Earth, to Mother Nature as you exchange your vows, it is definitely the place to be. Let the wind blow away your nerves and rosy your cheeks, allow the clouds to dazzle you as they let shafts of sunlight glance at your smiles and let the thunder of the waves join your laughter as you tie the knot on the Emerald Isle...or, go in May (it is their driest month).
Whenever you visit Ireland you are guaranteed the time of your life. The Irish are known as a rascally bunch that will do pretty much anything for a laugh, and laugh they do. I blame the sing song accent for me falling in love with every single Irish person I meet and may be a testament to them winning the Eurovision Song contest more times than any other country! Their grasses are free from snakes and their world famous golf courses free from Mole hills as they have neither species on their island, they do however, have a lust for life that is positively infectious and are some of the loveliest people you are ever likely to meet!
Doonbeg. The warmth of the Irish melted our hearts.
A Celtic celebration on the rugged beach of Doonbeg. Such an amazing, stunning place, nature and the outdoors beg you to go play! The beach was wild and the weather stormy but luckily, minus the rain! The ceremony was beautiful, full of Celtic traditions and blessings. The hand fasting was completed with an anointment of oils onto the back of our hands, binding us and blessing us and our commitment to each other. Highlight. Spending time with some truly amazing people in a beautiful part of the world and finding Lisa’s favourite wedding location so far!
We would love to feature more weddings in Ireland right here!
