Christina & Tim | Ballintaggart House | Dingle | Ireland | Wedding
December 09th. 2013 | 1 Comment
Christina and Tim. Where do I start. They are awesome.
We have to thank the wonderful Annie for introducing us to this very special couple and for bringing us back to our beloved Dingle for a few days. Like flurries of snow the emails flew between myself and Christina. I still remember getting Christina’s getting to know you form and my heart literally skipping a beat. The way Christina wrote about Tim and his love for her, was so beautiful. It is exactly how I feel about Seán. All the reasons I love Seán, were mirrored in the form before me. It was uncanny and I ran to the kitchen with big tear filled eyes telling Seán he had to read this “right NOW.” We both laughed as we read through Tim’s replies, I looked at Seán and said.. “remind you of any one??” He just laughed and said “maybe!”
With all weddings we go to, I am always excited to meet our couples and be part of their special day. I was super excited going to Ballintaggart House that morning. When we arrived, we found out that their had been a new addition to the family earlier that morning. Clodagh and Ian finally welcomed their baby girl to into the world. With massively happy hearts we headed out across the court yard to meet Christina. Then it happened. Something that hasn’t happened for a while. Like aaaages. I got super shy and lost my voice. I was so excited to finally meet Christina, the lady that seemed to have the same heart as me. And Nothing came out of my mouth! I couldn’t get all this excitement out. All these questions I had, all the wonderful wishes I had for her day, they just got stuck some where between my brain and my mouth, refusing to budge! I managed a few words. I couldn’t even tell you what they were. I think Seán suspected as much and we went off to find the lads. I rather like the lads shoots, in the morning and the banter that flies between us all. I nodded at Sean and agreed this was a good move. It worked. By the time I got back to Ballintaggart I had found a whisper.
We had the lols when we got upstairs . The ever talented Trish was putting the finishing touches to Christina’s hair. Christina’s dress was just Devine and was the perfect accompaniment to the Hunters boots, which were worn through an american airport in 100 degree heat. Another reason we fell in love with this couple early on. Christina said she was bringing her wellies with her. She was not going to miss out on an epic shot because there was mud and she didn’t have the proper foot wear! You have got to love this girls style! I always giggle when I think of her on the plane with the wellies on.
The laughter continued through out the day. Perhaps it was more nervous laughter in St Marys, the priest started asking pop questions … you know just to make sure we all were listening!!! It was hilarious! Then it was off to Dick Macs for some pints before we braved the cold October wind on some of Kerry’s best loved beaches.
This wedding will forever be special. Mostly because it was the wedding of a very special couple and two very beautiful families coming together. Also because it occurred a year to the day we the Poppiesandme website went live. And because it is the birthday of a very special little bundle of joy who will forever change the world of Ballintaggart House!
Thank you to “The two peas in a pod” from “The Peas and Carrots” We heart you always!
