This is  the highlights video from the wedding of Jonathan and Fiona I am proud to be sharing their wedding day memories in my latest wedding blog.
When it comes to a GAA match  Ballingarry and Kilkenaule are serious rivals with many a hard battle fought on  the field but today were are celebrating a love match between proud Ballingarry woman Fiona and equally proud Killenaule man Jonathan

Video coverage of this lovely wedding begins with the girls getting ready, Fiona and Jonathan were both staying in the Hotel Lodges which  overlook  the Glen of Aherlow.
The Lodges are situated on the grounds of Aherlow House under the shadow  of the Galtee Mountains, it was  just the perfect setting for the wedding preps video. We had great fun and banter with the girls and the boys, it was the upbeat beginning to a perfect day.

Happy Tipperary Couple Say Yes

The wedding ceremony took place in the church of the Sacred Heart, Lisvernane which is only a short spin from Aherlow House.  Fr. Jimmy O’ Donnell  conducted a nice quick wedding ceremony followed by the traditional greeting line outside the church door its  nice to capture  the guests offering congratulations and words of support to the newly weds on video.
Our next stop was Moroney’s Pub  in Lisvernane  just 30 secs from the church,  it was a opportunity for Fiona and Jonathan to unwind and mingle with their  guests,  the sun was beaming down most people were enjoying a chat and drinks outside the pub.

Aherlow House Hotel, Tipperary

I love weddings in Aherlow House it is one the best wedding venues in Tipperary,  the  Díarmuid and Gráinne function room  can accommodate   well over 200 guests.  The natural daylight from the large windows is ideal capturing high quality video footage.
Jonathan and Fiona decided on having the speeches after the meal providing a welcome break for me to relax in the bar and have bite to eat.

Fiona and Jonathan were so nice to work with on the day, they liked my style of videography which is very relaxed and easygoing  I never set up cheesy shots or ask couple to  stage a performance in front of the camera.

Irish Wedding Traditions you can make your own

Whether you are getting married in Tipperary, Kilkenny, Cork or Galway, this overview of Irish wedding traditions could be just what you’re looking for to add something special to your big day.

Money for Luck

In Ireland it is a long-standing tradition to present each other with coins on the day of the wedding. These coins symbolise luck and prosperity for the new bride and groom. For those of you who have a religious faith, it can be a nice touch to get the coins blessed by the priest saying the mass.

Wedding Traditions In Kilkenny
The Irish Horseshoe

The horseshoe is one of Irelands oldest wedding traditions and can be displayed at your home, at the ceremony or in another location of your choice. Be aware that the horseshoe should be displayed pointing upwards (like the letter U) to symbolise that your luck will never run out during your married life.

Tying the Knot – Handfasting

No doubt you are familiar with the term ‘tying the knot’! This ancient reference comes from the act of Handfasting, which was originally practiced in Celtic regions across the globe. Handfasting involves the couple holding hands, right hand to right hand and left hand to left hand. The joined hands are then bound with the Handfasting ribbon to symbolise their union. A beautiful old tradition, which seems to be going through somewhat of a revival.

The Blue Bride

Believe it or not, it is Irish tradition that the bride dresses in blue, not the white we most associate with weddings in Ireland today. In ancient Irish folklore, blue symbolised purity and was therefore the colour of choice for brides across the country. Thinking of adding a little ‘blue’ to your own wedding? Why not accent your bridal party outfits with shades of marines or dusky blues if you’re not quite sure about wearing blue yourself on the big day.

The Wedding Harpist

Even today a lot of brides and grooms will book a harpist to play either at their wedding ceremony or for their guests upon arrival at the reception venue. The harpist has a deep-rooted history of playing for Irish weddings and we are delighted that this tradition has lasted throughout the centuries.

Tying The Knot A Tipperary Wedding Tradition
The Magic Hanky

A thoughtfully embroidered handkerchief thought to symbolise fertility for the married couples future. The magic hanky should be incorporated into the bride’s outfit for the day in some way. Here are some ways in which you can do that:

Use the hanky as a garter

Wrap your bouquet stems in the hanky
Have the hanky stitched to the inside of your dress.
Make it part of your hairpiece.

Ancient stories tell us that once the ceremony is over, the bride should store the magic hanky in a safe place until the couple’s first-born child arrives and should then fashion a bonnet for the baby from the magic material. Such a lovely way to share your big day with your child!

Well we certainly learned a lot when we started researching these old Irish wedding traditions and we hope that you have found the information insightful and inspiring. What better way to keep our Irish traditions alive and well than by making them a part of your very own big day!
