Our Wedding Story: A spiritual wedding with friends at its heart

On 28th December 2015, Lisa and Brian married in a spiritual ceremony at Ballybeg House in Co Wicklow

 

Lisa Kavanagh and Brian Cooper

Brian, from Drumcondra, met Lisa, from Swords, in 2004 when she started a summer job at Dublin airport where he works as a maintenance technician and they got together on a work night out in March 2005.

The couple renovated their house in Drumcondra in 2012 and Brian proposed there a year later.

On 28th December 2015, Lisa and Brian married in a spiritual ceremony at Ballybeg House in Co Wicklow.

Friends played a big role in the day. Louise Kiernan of Birds of a Feather designed the invitations, Kelly McDonagh and Sinead Carroll sang Falling Slowly and Ciaran Cooper performed It’s Real Love.

Lorna Kavanagh wrote a poem for the ceremony and Lisa’s mother Teresa and her aunts all baked desserts. The bride’s father is Michael Kavanagh and Brian’s parents are Margaret and Liam Cooper.

The bride, an early childhood specialist for Early Childhood Ireland, wore a dress from the Little White Dress in Castleknock. Her two bridesmaids wore a mix of pieces from Folkster and Zara.

Craddóg played music all day - from the ceremony to the drinks reception and after dinner too –and the couple had their first dance to the Hall and Oats song You Make My Dreams Come True.

They honeymooned in New Orleans, Natchez, Memphis, Nashville and Mexico and live in Dublin with their dog, Nugget.
