What a beautiful wedding! I love the ceremony location, the madras ties, the cardigans and wellies for the bridesmaids…the fun, stylish personality that shone through these photos! The birde did such a wonderful job with planning. Thanks so much for sharing!

From the best tree backdrop I’ve ever seen to the rubber boots and cute bridesmaid dresses… What a great celebration!

Yay! I have been drooling over once wed here in Ireland for the last 2 years and always lamented that the Irish never seemed to have such stylish weddings…finally proof to the contrary! Gorgeous

Wow! That is one lucky couple. I can tell you in all my years here I’ve never come across an outdoor ceremony. We don’t often get dry weather! Gorgeous!

How beautiful. I love that they didn’t overdo the whole Irish thing: the Guinness, the tartan ties, and the Wellies were just enough without overplaying it. I especially like that green wasn’t used too much–it used to be that Irish people never wore green because it was thought of as the faeries’ color. This wedding reminded me that everything Irish doesn’t have to be an explosion of green and shamrocks! Such a gorgeous wedding.

Re: the cardigans – it’s hard to tell in the pictures, but the bride picked out a variety of beautiful buttons and had those sewed on so that each one is a tiny bit different. It was adorable!

That hobbit tree ceremony site is like something out of a fairy tale or fantasy novel. It gives me goose bumps! One of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing! I can only dream my wedding will one day be so lovely and charming!

The tree is jaw dropping. Nature is the best way to set the mood of a ceremony and this takes the cake. Stunning.

Do you know what I love about this wedding? That it looks real, it looks fun and it looks down to earth, yet still absolutely stunning. I think I am getting a little tired of the plastic fantastic wedding photography that is being featured on wedding blogs, this wedding is inspiring, achievable and I would really love to have been a guest there!!! Love it!

I love that it’s in Ireland. If I could afford it, I would get married in Enniscorthy where my grandmother was born. And of course, I love the green wellies!

I’m curious to know if this was a “commitment ceremony” or a legal wedding? Why? Because I thought Irish law stated that no open air weddings were allowed. However, I think there could be ways around this and since my gal and I are Ireland bound, I want to hear how others have worked it.

I love the bridesmaids in their cardigans and boots! What a great idea.

What a gorgeous wedding! The photographer is really good as I looked at this venue myself and it is really run down!

Josh-you can’t have a legal or religious ceremony outside in Ireland yet. However I have played in a string quartet as part of a humanist ceremony outdoors in Ireland. If you have a civil ceremony beforehand in a registry office or approved location you are free to have whatever kind of ceremony you want outside. Hope this helps!

Ciara | Reply

Josh- I don’t know if the criteria is different for a foreign couple marrying in Ireland however it is quite common in many European countries to have a legal or civil ceremony separate to a spiritual or religious ceremony. I don’t think doing it in two separate parts makes the 2nd ceremony any less real or significant, there’s no doubt looking at the love and joy of the wedding above it was anything but fake!

Ciara | Reply

Sorry typo! I was trying to say the ceremony above could never be referred to as fake! I’m planning my own wedding in the same way separating the civil and spiritual aspects.

Annie Byrne | Reply

Pagan ceremonies are legal in Ireland and those can be done outside. Always have a plan B though for an outdoor wedding ceremony in Ireland.

The bride’s dress was Vera Wang and the bridesmaid dresses are from J Crew! It was an incredible experience!!

Ashlie | Reply

Oh.My.Gosh. This wedding gave me goosebumps! The dress, the tree, the groomsmen ties, the bridesmaids dress + the sweaters and the boots! Easily one of the top 3 real weddings I’ve seen on this site. Actually probably just one of the Top 3 weddings I’ve laid eyes on period. But I am a tad obsessed with Ireland to start with…so I’m a little biased, but only a little! ;)

Gorgeous! I love it!

Stunning! Glad I’m not the only one who picked out the TREE – its just the perfect setting!

For anyone who wants to know, this wedding took place at the Bellinter House in Navan, Ireland.
