Jimmy & Caela Doherty

On the 22nd August 2009 Jimmy & Michaela Doherty set the trend to marry down on the farm. Married in a local church and held their wedding reception down on the Farm. The most memorable moments of your wedding day? Jimmy: The wedding was such an extraordinary occasion. A wonderful mix of friends and family made all the more special by the magical backdrop of the farm and wildlife park. Not too informal but enough so to make all our family and friends feel totally relaxed. It meant the party was certainly one to remember! Caela: We had tipis which are nostalgic now compared to our new wedding stretch tent at the farm, utterly awesome, set amongst the natural world - It felt like a truly wild wedding. What made your day unique? Caela: Notably I think it was a blend of rustic surroundings, natural beauty and an abundance of space. It all created such a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Jimmy: The pink tractor was an instant hit almost - as much as the piglets. Plus we got Jaimie to do a reading the church, it was just hilarious. The best tips to give future couples getting married on the farm? Caela: It’s hard but try not to worry too much. I know, it’s easier said than done during what can often be a stressful time. Ultimately it’s a day when everyone wants to wish you well and give you lots of love - so take your time to enjoy your special day. Jimmy: I found myself a quiet corner for five minutes with my new wife and a glass of bubbly. We sat together by the fire pit and loved watching people laughing and dancing as the party kicked off. Memories of their wedding day still live on, in the form of the bright pink digger gifted by Jimmy to Caela, you may have seen it chugging around the farm! Since then, the farm has evolved in to a fun place to play and indulge in the most delicious homemade local food.
