Cloughjordan House Wedding
“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment that I saw you, or if it was the second third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realised that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you” ~ Cassandra Clare
We have no doubt that of all the quotes that we post this is one is true of when Ultan first saw Caitlin.
Ultan lost his heart to a Galway girl, except that girl was Caitlin who was american but was studying in Galway. So, it’s basically the same thing! It was one of Caitlins friends that introduced the pair who became smitten and after a few months were totally besotted. The fairytale continued all the way over the pond to New York. The Lights of New York glowed beneath the High Line, like a river of gold the night Ultan took Caitlin for an intimate dinner for two. He got down on bended knee, giving Caitlin the surprise of her life.
They decided that there would be no better place to celebrate their love than on Irish soil. They chose the beautiful venue of Cloughjordan House in Tipperary. A truly unique venue, it’s a beautiful mix of alternative and historical with a dash of sustainable green fingers. It was the perfect venue for both families and friends to get to know each other in a cosy atmosphere. Determined that they would get married outside no matter the weather, Caitlin walked the wooded lane way to her vows as the breeze picked up and the clouds threatened to pour. As the two locked eyes, you could see the magic between them as the world around them faded, until it was just them. As Simone spoke beautifully about Ultan’s parents who both had passed away, the most incredible thing happened. The wind dropped, the clouds parted and we were all hugged by the warm of the sun. The gasp from the guests was audible. Sean held me tight as the goosebumps ran up my arms. Some believe that there is no such thing as miracles and magic. For sure though, I know these two are surrounded by it from above.
