Wedding Story of Hannah + Bailey
The DIY Wedding of the Year
Wow! This is one of the words that come to ind when I reflect back on the Wedding of Hannah and Bailey.
They contacted me all the way from the Falklands, where they lived together with their pet sheep, Milo. Hannah’s family home, it turns out was just around the corner from mine and it was funny how we had never met before! Social Media is a great thing for bringing us into contact with each other, isn’t ? Hannah and Bailey came home to Limerick to get married on the grounds of Hannah’s family home! When I arrived, I was completely blown away with how incredibly amazing their house and all its grounds were. This was the most perfect venue for a wedding. There was such a lovely presence about the house and everyone was so filled with love and excitement for what lay ahead.
As the morning passed , I discovered that Hannah was the DIY Queen. Everything in my sight seemed to have been handmade by Hannah. She handmade all the waistcoats that Bailey and the Groomsmen were wearing, to the Tot bag she gave as presents to her Bridal Party, she even had hand woven the wool from their pet sheep Milo and crafted it into the Handtie they used in their Hand Fasting ceremony. To me, such a personal touch made their wedding so special and intimate to them!
Amist 120+ of their Nearest and Dearest family and friends, they were married by the Celebrant, Pat Clarke Brown in one of the most intimate and special ceremonies Ive ever witnessed.
Hannah arrived to her wedding on horseback, riding with one of her horses that had been in the family for the last twenty years! The sun shone the whole day, even though Bailey had created a magnificent homemade Tarp! 😉
We didn’t have to go to far to roam to get to the reception was set up in a Marquee in the field beside the house! After some heartfelt speeches, the bellies were filled and the party was went straight into full swing! And man , was it ONE AMAZING party!
