Introducing a fabulous wedding at Kinnitty Castle
Ciara from Belfast met her Tasmanian devil Ben while travelling with friends at the time in Santiago, Chile. And was smitten. She moved from Belfast to be with Ben in Tasmania. They wanted the wedding to be like a big house-party and thought that a wedding at Kinnitty Castle would fit in with this vibe. Ciara brought her dress over from Melbourne specially. And it looked stunning against the bridesmaids in dark blue. Ciara’s mum Esme taught us some pearl etiquette. That alcohol in your perfume loves to take a nibble out of the pretty pearls so always spray perfume first before putting on your pearls! Ciara and Ben had an amazing personal wedding ceremony at Kinnitty Castle in the banqueting room and All Occasions Florist decorated the room beautifully and did the bouquets for the wedding day at Kinnitty. After the ceremony, we took a little drive in one of the fabulous Jaguars which Ciara’s dad collects. They looked so stunning parked outside the front of Kinnitty Castle. The bridal party may have been a giddy lot when we were taking our photos outside Kinnitty Castle but Ben and Ciara were up for the challenge of getting some stunning woodland photos at Kinnitty Castle. It was not easy for Ciara to walk to the spot with the stunning sunlight but Ben being the romantic type, picked her up in his arms and carried her there! By the time we got back, Ciara and Ben had some down time before seeing the banqueting room at Kinnitty Castle transformed for the night time dinner and entertainment. The guests all sat at one huge long banquet table together and it looked amazing. We got to hear how Ben is one generous, humble guy and that Ciara matches him so perfectly. She brings order to his chaos, sense to his ridiculousness and love to his life. You can’t ask for anything better in life. We stole our lovely couple out from the party for a nice sunset photo at Kinnitty Castle before we were blown away by the mad upbeat all inclusive Ceilidh band Haste to the Wedding. They had everyone up and dancing together and learning some great routines that people could really let their hair down to and have some fun.
It seemed the dream wedding at Kinnitty Castle for Ciara and Ben and they were planning a party-moon in Tuscany with 18 of their Australian friends straight after the wedding and then a couple of weeks alone in Greece. A perfect ending to a magical wedding at Kinnitty Castle. For more photos of Kinnitty, visit our venues page.
