This is the story of James and Paul, who met on a night out in Belfast. We just love that on their very first date, James told Paul that he knew they’d get married. And he was right! Take a peek at their wedding video above and have your tissues ready for the speeches.

“We chose our videographer because of their focus on being unobtrusive and recording the real interactions of our guests and family. Family is important to us and the reason we hired a videographer is to have a memory of our guests that we can share with them.”



Tell us about your wedding look:

Our suits were from Saville Menswear, 45 Oliver Plunkett St, Centre, Cork.


Tell us about your ceremony:

Our ceremony was performed by our friend Eimear Burke who is a Druid and Solemniser with the Pagan Federation Ireland.



Why did you choose your venue?

We chose our venue because it is beautiful, relaxed, and intimate. We hired the venue for the full weekend and it was an incredibly relaxed day!


What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

My favourite part of the wedding day was our ceremony. We arranged the chairs in two concentric circles around the central altar. It was really important for us that everyone was included in the ceremony and I love that no one was further back than the second row.


Do you have any advice for other couples getting married?

My piece of advice for other couples to think about why you’re getting married to each other and the people you want to be there with you. We enjoyed the feeling of treating our families and friends to a relaxed weekend of fun and friendship. You, your family and your guests are all that really matter. Above all, enjoy the process and the day.
