In the Ireland of old, it was good luck to hear a cuckoo on the morning of the wedding or see three magpies. It was also considered good luck if, after the wedding, someone tossed an old shoe over the bride’s head. Today the bride is more interested in finding the perfect place for her Irish wedding, be it a medieval castle, a lovely old home, an excellent hotel, or a spot in the countryside. The same holds true if you’d like to mark a special anniversary, renew your vows, or receive a blessing upon your union. Place is important.
Just as important, if not more, are the logistics: Planning the service; the legal ins- and-outs of a civil wedding compared to a church wedding; the photographer; booking the wedding; filing paperwork if necessary; travel and accommodations for guests and family… The event would be overwhelming were it not for local assistance. Authentic Ireland has on-staff wedding specialists who love to make your romantic fantasies a reality.
