Two People, One Life. A Traditional Real Wedding In Ireland – Lisa & Alex

If you haven’t already come across Lisa and Alex’s cool story and accompanying blog, you are in for a treat this afternoon. 

Get lost in their blog at 2 People 1 Life to find out more (they tell it better than I do!) but in brief, their tale goes a little like this.  Off on their travels, Lisa and Alex – the indecisive duo that they are – decided to have a wedding ceremony in every country they visit in search of the perfect place to tie the knot.  They are touring the globe in their 27 year old camper van ‘Peggy’ exchanging vows in the most unusual and unique wedding locations that they can find and embracing the culture and customs of each stop on their journey.  At the end of the trip they will pick their favourite place and go back to officially tie the knot, inviting everyone they have met along the way.

So, just a little bit cool then.

When I met Lisa and Alex at our #weddinghourlive Halloween Party back in October, we clicked right away and whilst Alex helped me stuff almost 200 party bags for our guests, Lisa and I talked weddings.  Turns out its a mutual favourite subject.  What d’you know?

Today I’m thrilled to share my favourite (so far!) of their days with you, as we tag along with this Mancunian duo the the Emerald Isle…

Lisa says:  We got engaged in 2011 at a local restaurant with all of our family there. It was our leaving party as we were setting off on a trip around the World!

The floral focus was on my crown which was made entirely of olive branches. I had a bouquet of olive too for the pictures, I loved its simplicity.

My favourite part of the day was the ceremony. I cried the entire time. Our Celebrant Dara Molloy’s words were so true, so deeply meaningful and incredibly touching. Saying I Do to Alex for the 41st time was like it was the very first time all over again!

We focused on the pale blue of the dress and just had very neutral earthy shades throughout. My flowers were wild flowers but mainly olive branches to keep it all paired down. Our stationery by Farrell and Chase was clean, simple and stylish and presented with olive branches and rosemary too.

Our cake was no ordinary cake. It was a masterpiece! Samantha from Cloudberry Bakery created something that looked amazing with flowers handmade in icing and coloured to match my dress and one tier completely covered in gold leaf. And when we cut it…oh my! Guinness and Chocolate cake is sent from heaven above!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that the team of people you work with to help you create your wedding day are so incredibly important and can make or break your day. If you get on well with your team, nothing can go wrong and they can become very special guests on the actual day.

    These photographs are just beautiful! I love the pastel colour palette and the traditional elements of this wedding, and of course, the concept behind Lisa & Alex’s journey as 2 People 1 Life is incredible too.
