Lisa and Andrew celebrated their wedding in a traditional castle – Barberstown Castle but not everything was traditional –  they had some quirky ideas along the way!!!

Lisa got ready at her parent’s house in Naas in her childhood bedroom with her whale drawing on her wardrobe and her 2 favourite cuddly toys, Angel and Margaret Bob, who were presents from her grandmother as a child.  There were some interesting gifts especially the engraved hammers for her dad Malachy and Andrew’s dad Derek. 

The wedding ceremony took place in the nearby Two-Mile house church.  Lisa arrived in style in the new electric  Tesla car.  As its so quiet, I was told there is an app that makes an engine sound so pedestrians can hear it coming!!!  In the church, Lisa and Andrew sat on chairs that Andrews’ great-grandparents sat on for their wedding in 1925.
Lynda, Lisa’s sister had a lovely present for Lisa of a quill for signing the registry.  She made sure no ink would spill on the dress and converted it to a ballpoint pen!  We loved the last song “signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours”.

After the ceremony, the newleyweds were keen to have an unusual photo at the Naas ball.  We had great fun, parking up and walking over to the ball, with lots of people rubbernecking to see the bride and groom!  We then headed back to Barberstown with Limelight Video for the more traditional, romantic photos in the lovely grounds of the castle and the banqueting room.  The willow tree was in full bloom and provided a romantic, wistful background.

We headed back for some family photographs in the courtyard before the call for dinner.  We loved that Lisa had two engagement rings, one a token ring and the other her good engagement ring.  Lucky girl……
