As we enthusiastically wave goodbye to winter and the first flowers begin to bloom, say it quietly, springtime is on its way!

Spring is a time for new beginnings and clean slates, bringing with it a sense of renewal and creativity. With the glut of new brides getting engaged over the Christmas and Valentine’s Day period, spring is the perfect time to wed and embark on your new life together as a couple. 

Romance & The Irish

Irish people have a long history of romantic gestures. In fact, the remains of St. Valentine are enshrined in a casket in a church in County Dublin. On Valentine’s day, every year, the casket is carried to the alter in a special mass.

There is a big difference between how romance was celebrated in old Ireland and how it’s celebrated today. Traditions such as exchanging Aran jumpers with your partner aren’t nearly as popular as they once were.

Traditions among brides were also very different. Irish brides would generally carry a handkerchief on her wedding day but this traditional is now largely condemned to history. It was meant to symbolise fertility.

There is a saying that "every outfit tells a story", so why wear a dress a million other Ladies have chosen when you can have your very own bespoke dress that tells the greatest love story of all? Yours.
