A Sustainable & Natural Inspired Irish Castle Wedding

  • The setting is a medieval castle in Co. Meath, Ireland, and also the focus was on sustainability, and also the beauty of nature. Travel Director, and Jonathan, who is a Doctor, celebrated their marriage around 7 December 2019 at, Co. Meath.

    Emma chose her dress and such a beautiful choice. I love the botanical-inspired lace, the high-low illusion hem, the caped sleeves, and every one of those wonderful tassels – so dreamily beautiful.

    Florist Sarah made a captivating, romantic flower crown, which included white roses, hellebores, and sprigs of olive.

    She also made a spectacular, wild bouquet for Emma, inside a beautiful, subtly muted color pattern, with browning fern leaves, grasses, berries, and seed heads alongside roses, hellebores, sea holly, festive evergreens, and also the most amazing, sinuous branches of corkscrew hazel.

    "We met when Jonathan found study medicine in Ireland in the past. We got engaged on the beach in Waterford (with these dogs) where we lived for 6 months. We fell deeply in love with the area, also it was something Jonathan desired to do before we left. Our daughter Isla arrived 8 weeks after the engagement. We got engaged, were built with a baby, moved twice, and also got married in 2019!"

    The couple's ceremony room was decorated with boughs of greenery, fairy lights, and bunting, and Emma was accompanied on the aisle by her dad, daughter, and dogs, to Songbird, by Eva Cassidy.

    Emma and Jonathan opted for any humanist ceremony, so that as they made their vows, additionally they gave one another letters they'd written for just one another, to become opened in 5 years.

    After the ceremony, Emma and Jonathan walked along with their sweet daughter Isla, as well as their dogs within the castle gardens, there to capture those lovely moments, and all from the ethereal, winter beauty of the day was their photographer. Go

    "We chose Kate because she loves dogs, and her pictures are from the moment. She just gets it, and she's cool AF!"

    The bridesmaids wore flower crowns within their hair, and navy bridesmaid dresses, with shoes, whilst Emma's bridesman wore full Highland attire.

    Groom Jonathan looked smart inside a dark tweed suit, worn having a white shirt, bow tie, floral print pocket square, and shoes.

    The castle's Great Barn was decorated beautifully for Emma and Jonathan's reception, with a lot of subtly festive details like a nod towards the season. Fairy lights were twinkling throughout, and also the timber ceiling beams were draped with garlands of ivy.

    Rustic, mismatched tables and chairs were pushed together for feasting, with lace-trimmed hessian runners on the middle of the tables, interspersed with floral centerpieces given extra height when you are placed on the surface of log slices.

    The couple's cake is made by cousins; an attractive, three-tier semi-naked creation, that was then adorned with greenery, flowers, berries, and fairy lights.

    The wedding feast, thanks to Durhamstown Castle, would be a relaxed, joyful affair, with Emma and Jonathan's dogs also present. There were heartfelt messages, and afterward, the pair took towards the dancefloor for his or her first married dance, then live music from a top-rated wedding band.

    "My favorite part from the day was Jonathan stealing me away for 20 minutes to talk to one another – and also the band was great. I was pretty relaxed, maybe I shouldn't happen to be but it's only a party – what's the purpose of stress?”

    Words of Wedded Wisdom

    "I know weddings could be stressful, I just think young people need to remember it's their day, and that's it. Do what you would like. Also, it will always be more expensive than you believe, so be ruthless."
