Informal Alternative Wedding in Cork: Jacinta & Paschal

The gorgeous, heavily tattooed Jacinta married Paschal in July in Ireland. “We met through music and going to festivals”, wrote the bride. “This is where the inspiration for the cake topper came from as we were known as ‘two peas in a pod’ because we were so similar. It was more about our mutual love for music at that stage, but soon a fabulous romance blossomed.”

“My wedding dress was always going to be alternative”, she continued, “and I wanted Bonzie at Willow and Wild to make it. After an initial meeting I fell in love with her vision, passion, friendliness and attention to detail. She blew me away and I could feel the love that she had put into my dress at each fitting.”

The wedding was held at Barnabrow Country House in Cork. “It was a dream venue”, Jacinta said, “the perfect romantic setting and not very formal. We only had a guest list of  26 adults and 7 children, so we wanted to keep things casual. It was a magic rural experience. We all sat at one banquet table and the laughter filled the room, it was like a giant family dinner. The food was divine and the wine glasses magically never emptied. Each room had a different décor which added to the magic.”

“We wanted our wedding to show the love that we have for each other and the comments from our guests were that they’d never been to a wedding like it”, she concluded. It was perfect and if we had to do it again we would not change anything. Everyone there was involved in making the most perfect memorable day ever.”
