Borris House Wedding

Imagine a scene straight out of a fairy tale – a gorgeous couple exchanging vows in the midst of nature, friends and family gathered,  butterflies fluttering around them. This was exactly the magical setting for Emily & Darragh’s Borris House wedding as can be seen in the photographs below.

Stepping onto the grounds of Borris House, a palpable sense of excitement filled the air. Despite a forecast of rain, the sun emerged, bathing the historic estate in a radiant glow, creating an idyllic setting for the couple’s outdoor ceremony. Emily and Darragh’s union was a seamless blend of cultures and traditions, weaving together the rich heritage of China and Ireland.

Before walking down the aisle to marry Darragh in front of the beautifully restored 18th century Chapel of St Moling, Emily had an emotional first look with her parents – a moment we were truly blessed to witness.

It was beautiful to see the fusion of Chinese and Irish cultures, from the signs in Chinese around the Estate, to the origami with guests names on the tables to the hand fasting ceremony. Every moment exuded an undeniable warmth and sincerity. Their love, transcending borders and languages, left a lasting impression on all present. Every glance, every touch, every smile was a testament to the power of love and the joy of finding your soulmate.

Our favourite memories of their wedding ceremony was seeing butterflies fluttering during the couples’ first kiss – it felt absolutely magical – and their joyous exit with the all their guests throwing rose petals in the air.

Drinks Reception and Dancing

Even though the rooms inside the venue are stunning, as the sun continued to shine, guests had drinks and hors d’oeuvres outdoors, enjoying the music and the amazing surroundings.

The dinning room was beautifully decorated not only with lots of candles, Chinese sayings on every table, origami, and a cut out Chinese sign on the wall meaning ‘double happiness’ but also the floral arrangements used on the ceremony being reused behind the main table.

 following the drinks reception guests were invited to the dinning room where the couple had the most heartfelt speeches. Emily and Darragh chose not to have a wedding cake, they opted for a champagne tower instead.

Capturing the essence of Emily & Darragh’s wedding day was an honour beyond words. It was a reminder of the magic and beauty that can be found in love. It is a force that knows no boundaries, that transcends cultures and languages, and that brings people together in the most extraordinary of ways.
