“The more you watch it,
the more you get out of it!
Fills my heart with pure joy!”


Humanist ceremonies are always a pleasant surprise for us. We love hearing what readings, music and vows the couple pick. It's especially nice when the ceremony is held outside in the sun!

Aileen & Becky celebrated their same-sex wedding in the sprawling estate of Ballintubbert House with their friends, family, 2 dogs and baby daughter. Both brides spent the morning together in the main house before dressing separately and then sneaking off for a "first look" with the photographer David McClelland.

The dogs joined the guests for the outdoor Humanist service in the garden where Aileen and Becky exchanged personalized vows. The reception followed with champagne, bowling, live saxophone, lounging on hay bales, an excited Becky beating her drum and 2 even more excited dogs.

As the sun went down, the crowd followed the couple to the marquee for dinner and speeches. Aileen and Becky then took to the stage and, well, you can see for yourself!
