How To Incorporate Celtic Traditions and Themes
For the week that is in it and it being St. Patricks Day today this is a perfect Fashion Friday BLOG. For a couple planning a destination wedding in Ireland, a Celtic or Traditional theme may be on your mind. In today’s blog post we discuss introducing a theme and the traditional aspects.
Ireland has a long history with special marriages and bringing together families of power. In our founding years High King Brian Boru and Queen Gormlaith would marry into each others families to secure their kingdoms. Celts loved to celebrate and festivities would last for days. Celtic Culture is revered and returning family can learn about their heritage and celebrate their roots.
Our very own Celtic Celebrant, Dara Molloy, offers a range of services and can alter them to your wishes. Dara performs ceremonies including vow renewals and blessings. The ceremonies include elements of the Celtic tradition such as hand-fasting. They also include blessings for the man and woman, of the four elements, for the health of the marriage and for the protection of the marriage.
Music and Dress-
Music choices can range from the harp, to bag pipes, Sean Not singing and even choirs. Traditional Irish music is usually a Ceile band which consist of accordions, tin whistles, bodhrans and fiddles. Incorporating elements of Celtic themes can also be very subtle, such as wearing a kilt. Kilts are a traditional choice for the groom and his party, wear the plaid design of your clan with pride.
Our couple, Courtney and Marty, held their wedding day at Adare Manor and the colour green was everywhere. From the bridesmaids to groomsmen and even the cake! Holding your wedding in a Castle or Manor will hold significance to your Irish roots and will be a place for you to return with amazing memories.
We hope that this post has inspired you to incorporate Celtic themes and traditions in to your Destination Wedding.
