An Alternative Wedding Event

For some the word ‘alternative’ conjures up images of people with excess hair, living in teepees, dancing across windswept mountains – growing their own!

This however, could not be further from the truth at the Alternative Wedding Event hosted by One of a Kind Weddings at the Guinness Storehouse on Sunday last. This was a stylish affair and I’m sure inspirational to all the couples who are brave enough to thread the path of alternative and take the time to look for something different for their unique day. Unlike the larger wedding fairs, an event like this with its select few suppliers gives the chance for couples to really add personality to their wedding or commitment ceremony.

At Finer Details we love this approach and really welcome couples to allow their stationery to reflect their personalities. This style of wedding fair ticked nearly all of the boxes for me – I did’nt see any wedding stationery on the day so I’ve added some of ours.

Photographs were captured by Lisa O’Dwyer and apart from the most delightful sample of lemon cake by Cake-a-licious one of my many favorites from the day was this beautiful enameled brooch from Hayworth Vintage.

Here are just some of the suppliers I met on the day:

Rangoli for stunning bespoke jewellery & head accessories.

”The hottest photography duo” White tea.

Siobhan Byrne Wicklow based photographer.

Pearl & Godiva for the most beautiful antique fine bone china tea cups, cakes stands…all for hire.

The ever so busy Annie Byrne wedding planner from Aislinn Events.

The day was also an opportunity to meet the faces of well established bloggers:

Naoise, Sue & Mags from One fab day, Lisa from Bride and Joy, Bláthín from Wedding High and Tinkerbelle Bride

    Hi Marie,
    I love your post and couldn’t agree more. It was great to see so much creativity in one place. Lisa really captured the beauty.

    I hope to see you in Cork at the next one for coffee and cake (I hope Amy will be there)
