Photographs I Heart Weddings

Lily O?Sullivan is from Bantry, Co Cork and Jason Read is from Perth – how on earth would they ever choose a wedding venue? Well, compromise is over-rated; so they did both, with the second part of this sunny celebration happening in (not so sunny, but equally lovely) Bantry. Because we love a bit of escapism, we’re sharing the Australian portion, with its beach-side ceremony, chilled, outdoor vibes and beautifully bright colour palette. One can dream!

?We wanted our weddings to represent us? who we are and what we love. We wanted them to be relaxed, fun and casual with no stiffness and lots of time to dance the night away. Most importantly, we wanted to share our wedding day with all our families and friends, so that nobody missed out. So were two different weddings, in two different countries, in one week with, 12,000km travel distance, worth it? You bet they were!?

?Just after the Perth ceremony, we snuck away to share a secret cider overlooking our beach; the beach where we fell in love, got engaged and got married. It was pretty special.?
