There’s something so special about multicultural weddings! I might have a soft spot for them because of my own big day! 🙂 Daphne and Dave are two impossible lovebirds. After having a chat with them over a coffee and hearing their beautiful story I couldn’t wait for the Kinnity Castle wedding they planned. They chose to tie the knot in the country where they built their home, and Daphne’s friends and family flew from all over Canada to share their big day. They were in for a truly lavish feast in an elegant and historical Kinnity Castle. Daphne and Dave’s big day has some serious style goals. You’ll see!
Serious Wedding Dress Goals for Kinnity Castle Wedding
I think I was hooked from the moment Daphne sent me that first e-mail where she mentioned they weren’t having a very traditional wedding and she wouldn’t be wearing a traditional white dress! How fitting and elegant does this incredible burgundy gown look in a real Irish castle?? I absolutely loved Daphne’s choice to stay true to her style, and her taste is impeccably elegant. Dave turned a few hats as well, in his navy blue suit coupled with a bow-tie, a top hat and even a real cane! I think I heard the word “dapper” more than once 🙂
Another plan of Daphne and Dave’s that got me hooked was their plan to go with the first look. I didn’t even need to convince them! I thought it was one of the sweetest moments of the day. Daphne couldn’t wait to see her husband-to-be and positively ran to Dave! Just like magic the storm that had been raging in Ireland for over a week lifted for the exact amount of time we needed for outdoor photos. Everyone enjoyed the sunshine and we couldn’t believe the blue skies! I often say Irish weather is magical and seems to be quite partial to weddings 🙂
Kinnity Castle Wedding Ceremony
When I think of castles dark rooms often come to mind. I loved the ceremony room for this Kinnity Castle wedding. It’s bright, spacious and very elegant. Daphne looked absolutely radiant as she walked up the aisle with her father to finally marry her soulmate. There were heartfelt readings and a beautiful letter Daphne wrote to Dave. There was a tree-planting ceremony (I’m sure they are much better at caring after plants than I am!) And afterwards there was an amazing table quiz, with fun trivia questions about Spice Girls, Shakespeare, Canada and Ireland. It was amazing to see all the guests mingling, sharing their culture and laughing so hard!
