Is your wedding really even Irish if it doesn’t feature one of these?
We have a huge grá for all those little quirks and traditions that make a wedding truly Irish, and our Real Wedding submissions are bursting with them! For the week that’s in it, we decided to trawl back through our archives and share some of our favourite shots showcasing our little country at its best.
The Irish Coastline
There isn’t another country in the world that could bate that backdrop.
When GAA Rivalry Is Alive & Well
It wouldn’t be an Irish wedding without warring counties and some friendly banter.
A Hurley Guard Of Honor
Pretty much mandatory in GAA country.
Mon’ The Lads
Boys will be boys – and Irish groomsmen win the prize for the most laid-back bunch.
An Irish Church
They have a charm all of their own.
Being Prepared For The Weather
Well, it is Ireland after all!
A Stroll Through The Local Town
To show everyone who isn’t invited to your wedding that you are the ultimate boss, and they will never be able to compete with the sheer epicness of your big day.
A Pitstop In The Pub
A mandatory factor to schedule into your wedding day timeline – both on the way to AND from the church.
They say the candy cart is going out of fashion… Not around here, thank you very much.
Enjoying A Sneaky Pint On Board Your Wedding Transport
Someone’s gotta get the party started…
A Session In The Dance Hall To Round Off The Evening
The day wouldn’t be complete without a jig on the dance floor to The Galway Girl.
