Brides with Pride

Sara and Niamh, two brides with pride! Sara’s and Niamh’s wedding in Cork was a fun-filled day in June. It was a celebration of equal rights in a country that is typically steeped in traditions. Both Sara and Niamh had ‘Bride With Pride’ T-shirts made for the occasion and they did wear them with pride indeed!

Niamh and Sara had met through their studies at Cork University, where they both completed their medical degrees. For their big day they had booked the dramatic looking Blackrock Castle Observatory as a venue for the actual wedding ceremony.

Many guests had flown in from overseas. Sara and Niamh therefore decided to book the Rochestown Hotel for the evening reception. This meant that most guests could just stumble to their rooms after the party!
