It is the time of year when Ireland takes center stage and celebrations are being planned worldwide. Today we share an Irish Countryside wedding that we know you will love! Thank you to Savo Photography based out of Wicklow, Ireland for this lovely wedding submission at Ballyvolane House in Cork.
Holly and John wanted their wedding to be a relaxed, informal and fun day full of laughter. The involvement of their friends and family was also important to the couple. To include them on their day, family members participated in a Hand Fastening Ceremony. Different coloured ribbons were bound around the couple’s held hands and each colour represented the things they wanted the bride and groom’s marriage to be blessed with, devotion, happiness, romance, patience, wisdom, loyalty and permanence. John’s nanny took the ceremony quite literally and told the couple that they were not getting away from each other and tied her ribbon tight in a double knot around the couple’s wrists!
The beautiful bride had a cocktail length Mori Lee gown with the most wonderful bowed shoes. We adore the Woodland Flowers bridal bouquet and love that all other floral at the wedding was prepared by aunties and grown at John’s nanny’s garden! The couple also contributed to the DIY projects. Holly created all stationery for the day and trained chef John used a recipe that belonged to his nanny to make the cake. This recipe had been used to make her own wedding cake and the groom’s parents cake, a lovely way to honour her memory.
While the rainy weather may have forced their outdoor wedding into the barn, it left a stunning rainbow and a memory that few couples will have on their wedding day.
The newlyweds traveled to the West Coast of Canada for their honeymoon. With visits to Calgary, through the Rockies to Vancouver.
Congratulations Holly & John!
