Ireland Destination Wedding | Muckross Park
” Tim and I met in Ibiza in 2007. Were on the same flight and happened to stay at the same hotel. We started chatting on a bar crawl on the first night and stayed together since then.
Tim took me back to Ibiza to propose, we were on a holiday with a big group of our good friends so it was totally unexpected.
He proposed on the beach, in the pitch black darkness as I was late getting ready and made us miss the sunset.
We went to a fancy restaurant afterwards to enjoy the moment together, then onto a club to celebrate with our pals.”
With its rugged coastline and mountains, the county of Kerry stretches out, filled with forests and busy waters. Amongst this Irish countryside, little villages lies cosily nestled between splendid nature and was the place Harriet and Tim choose for their wedding.
Harriet and her bridesmaids wore rosemary in their hair, clutching blush roses against their softly coloured dresses. Her bond with her sister, mum and girlfriends are so strong, it was a privilege to be part of their bridal morning, getting ready in nervous anticipation of the day ahead. In Tim’s family church, while the rain was mounting up to a small storm outside, they said their vows.
Taking in the mystery of the area, we headed to the abandoned monastery, which the locals claimed gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write ‘Dracula’. Built around a yew tree older than the monastery itself, the roofs are now gone, and the forest is closing in on it.
Muckross Hotel and Spa provided a relaxing bliss for the wedding guests, whilst exploring Ireland over several days. In the wedding celebration stretching over three days, many pints of Guinness was consumed and Tim’s musical family made everyone feel welcome with music and their warm Irish nature.
