I was blown away when I heard how Christina & Colin planned their Wedding at The Village Barn Tyrrellspass. They booked themselves into a hotel for 2 nights with their laptop and got everything organised for the wedding date! They are quite the alternative couple and chose an alternative wedding venue in Ireland, the amazing Village Barn Tyrrellspass. Such a lovely setting and full of quirky corners and cobblestone courtyard with outhouse buildings with mismatch furniture. The chapel is on site with a resident plastic cow in the garden overseeing everything.
Colin got ready with his mum and brothers just beside the venue in the cosy cottage (His worst fear was not being able to tie his bowtie!). While Christina was 10 minutes away at a super cool farmhouse with its own barn. The pair of them agreed to do a first look and we had such fun watching Chirstina’s brother Patrick act as chief groomsmaid (especially since there were no official bridal party). He hid behind them for some photos, making sure the train of the dress did not touch the ground and get muddy before the ceremony.
The tin church at the wedding at The Village Barn Tyrrellspass was decorated lovingly by the pair of them and ther table with candles and decorations looked so pretty. They had the lovely Antoinette Coleman of Spritual Ceremonies officiate the wedding ceremony. She had some great ideas of making sure these guys tied the knot with some hand fasting, readings and even a tipple to share!!!
During the drinks reception, we got a few more photos around the venue and even a few family photos. Christina’s dad was complaining that he wanted to be taller, so for fun, we found a beer barrel and had him over 4 feet higher than everyone. The guests certainly were boisterous and enjoyed a cosy drink indoors. One guest had to own up to eating the official cup cake topper of Daisy, the dalmation. So we never got to see it!!! But we did love the handknitted funky gnomes made by a friend at the wedding and the cool wooden guest book made by John, Christina’s dad.
After speeches, the friends came out to the twinkly lights in the courtyard at The Village Barn Tyrrellspass and Colin did a walk by just to get the girls laughing. Spirits were high and everyone got ready to watch the lovely newleyweds on the dance floor before they took part in a bit of a boogie themselves. It seems an argument over stolen red balloons in a bar in Dublin got these two together and had them here today celebrating their Wedding at the Village Barn Tyrrellspass. So truly you never know when you will be hit by the cupid arrow!
