The bride made her own Victorian wedding dress, the groom wore an impeccable top hat, and the guests all came in FULL era-appropriate costumes…
Daphne and David rocked a signature elegant meets offbeat style at their Irish castle wedding at Kinnity Castle in County Offaly. We’re talking a sleek wine red dress, top hats, dapper coats, a romantic first look, ivy-covered walls, greenery arches, and toasts all night long. Oh, and there was an amazing table quiz with trivia questions about Spice Girls, Shakespeare, Canada, and Ireland.
Don’t miss the tree planting ceremony!
Veregene and Brian traveled from America to elope on the Irish coastline in front of the magical Dunluce Castle. Their ceremony was held in a local farmer’s field with amazing views. Veregene was even taken to the ceremony and back on the farmer’s tractor! Now that’s a good way to travel in the countryside. As avid Game of Thrones fans they were able to journey around Northern Ireland’s famous Game of Thrones locations and take photos in front of stunning locations such as the Dark Hedges aka The Road to Kings Landing. It’s a dream location for any GoT fan.
Having finished her studies, Elli wanted to travel the world before starting her job as a teacher. She booked flights to Australia and New Zealand and met Terry on the third day in Lorne. For Terry it was love at first sight, and after traveling together to New Zealand, Elli realized Terry was the one as well. They have been together ever since. The relaxed and elegant wedding was held in a castle built around the year 1200. Elli envisioned the day to be inviting, easy, personal, and down to earth with a touch of boho and lovely flowers. There was a mix of lavender, eucalyptus, field flowers, and touches of chrysanthemums and berries.
We both love castles and Irish history, and Craig wanted to have a death metal band play, so we found somewhere where that was possible, and arranged everything around that. We didn’t have a specific theme, but the castle definitely inspired some elements of our wedding. We decided to include our two swords in the day as there is a Viking tradition to exchange swords at your wedding as a promise to protect each other.
Karin and Helge love Scotland and have spent several vacations there. So they decided to instill some of what they love into their ultraviolet dress and kilt, velvet shoes covered in embroidery (illustrating their last name!), and a horse-drawn carriage to transport all their guests. My favorite part? The bouquet was split into three parts and given to the three witnesses of the ceremony.
