Intimate Wedding In Dunowen House, Cork, Ireland

I’ll Be There For You, by Louise Cuddon
I’ll be there, my darling, through thick and through thin
When your mind’s in a mess and your head’s in a spin
When your plane’s been delayed, and you’ve missed the last train.
When life is just threatening to drive you insane
When your thrilling whodunit has lost its last page
When somebody tells you, you’re looking your age
When your coffee’s too cool, and your wine is too warm
When the forecast said, “Fine,” but you’re out in a storm
When your quick break hotel, turns into a slum
And your holiday photos show only your thumb
When you park for five minutes in a resident’s bay
And return to discover you’ve been towed away
When the jeans that you bought in hope or in haste
Just stick on your hips and don’t reach round your waist
When the food you most like brings you out in red rashes
When as soon as you boot up the bloody thing crashes
So my darling, my sweetheart, my dear…
When you break a rule, when you act the fool
When you’ve got the flu, when you’re in a stew
When you’re last in the queue, don’t feel blue
’cause I’m telling you, I’ll be there.

How I absolutely love this reading from Kristin and Philip's humanist ceremony! They got married in the beautiful Dunowen House (which is known for one of its former residents Noel Redding - bass player with Jumi Hendrix) outside Clonakilty in Cork surrounded by their closest family and friends. It was a small, intimate and perfect celebration of their 17 year relationship and their journey together. The couple's two children were at the center stage and very much involved in the day as the best man and a bridesmaid :) Kristin's family travelled from Germany and Dunowen House provided a great and cosy setting for everyone to stay together for a few days of the celebrations. The whole family was involved from making cakes for the dessert table to writing messages of love and support for the bride and groom. Kristin is a talented Munster based graphic designer and designed the wedding invitations and stationery herself. The beautiful flowers were grown in Ireland and designed by Ruth Fortune. Catering of local and seasonal food was provided by Dunowen.
