Top priority for Alyssa and Aaron when we were planning their destination wedding to Ireland was to have a scenic location. A ceremony with a view.
We looked at a lot of manor houses, big and small in locations around the country. Our happy couple settled on Ballintaggart House, a 300 year old Manor house on the way in to Dingle. It worked for them on many levels. The intimate size for their wedding party of 50, the views are fabulous looking out over the bay, and how close it is to Dingle town. Dingle is a super lively fishing town with more pubs then you could possible get to on a short visit so the group stayed in the area for four days and just relaxed and settled in to getting to know the locals.
This is what the wedding day looked like by super talented Hannah and Jaron Ball Photo .
While the girls were doing some relaxing Yoga in the house, the guys went for a traditional groom’s swim at the beach nearby.
After a relaxing morning the getting ready started with hair by Tricia O’Sullivan and makeup by Annette O’Brien. Two of my fave suppliers to work with!
Once ready, Alyssa and Aaron met for a few moments together before the ceremony. The first look is just time to themselves before the wedding day madness starts.
All of the flowers were fabulous from Leona at Every Occasion who I love to work with and always gets it beautifully right.
There were some lovely nontraditional bridal party members too like the Flower boys who did a great job and each got a lollipop after the ceremony.
The dinner, reception and after party was lively, full of fun and pints of Guinness!
Again thanks to Hannah and Jaron, Tricia, Annette. John, Clodagh and all of the staff at Ballintaggart. Other credit for the day goes to ceremony musician, Aoife Granville and the David Dillon, the band.
What a great day was had by all!!
