Jing & James flew over from Australia to celebrate their wedding in the luxurious Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny, Ireland. A late afternoon cermeony start time of 3pm allowed for a very relaxing morning of preparations. Guests had time to explore the expansive grounds and James had enough time to write his speech!
The couple held their Humanist service outdoors in the garden with live music, readings by friends and personalized vows. Guests mingled outside for the drinks' reception while the couple sneaked off for some portraits with Paul from Moat Hill. The evening concluded with an impromptu raffle, speeches that had everyone in fits of tears and laughter, and some very memorable dancing. A personal highlight of ours was James' unapologetic/genius interpretive dance to a certain Westlife number.
We've shot a lot of fancy Irish estate weddings over the years. If this is your thing, you might like Aileen & Becky's garden ceremony at Ballintubbert House
