When Cheryl and Rob first got in touch about their wedding day I knew from the very beginning it was going to be special. They both live in the UK but Rob has family in Ireland and they managed to find the hidden gem that is The Village Barn in Tyrrellspass as their wedding venue. I had never been or even heard of this venue and you would honestly miss it, hidden behind the shop front of Willie’s bar and the Grocery on the sleepy main street of Tyrrellspass. The place itself and its grounds were full of unique and quirky elements, including a full size dairy milk cow and complete with its very own tin chapel, ideal for an intimate wedding. With all these interesting elements to it, the venue really felt like someones home and not at all like a wedding venue which is what drew Cheryl and Rob to it, perfect for a wedding party. Cheryl and Rob never wanted a traditional wedding and none of the fuss or traditions that went with it, just a relaxed garden party vibe and this was especially true when it came to their photos. They wanted the day to be about them and the people closest to them and that was the most important thing to be captured. They even had a trad band for their reception and a few guests joined in with their own version of Irish dancing!!! They did have their own little touches, with photos of each guest instead of place names and Whiskey and Baileys miniatures on the tables as a little nod to Rob’s Irish connection. The day itself was a beautiful summers day full of emotions and laughter from the ceremony to the longest confetti line l’ve ever seen, (more of these please!) to the various speeches which were both hilarious and moving. It was such a pleasure to witness and be a part of this wonderful day.
Wishing these two all the happiness!
