Kathleen & Steve’s Christmas Wedding


On December 30th we celebrated our last wedding of 2019, a Christmas wedding, with the relaxed and laid back Kathleen and Steve. Kathleen is from Tralee, but herself, Steve and their two girls live in the UK, Kathleen wanted a Kerry wedding and we were delighted to be able to make their dream wedding a reality.

Kathleen choose a classic look with a stunning dress, paired with striking red roses which complimented the Christmas decor in Sol y Sombra perfectly. Surrounded by their closest friends and family Kathleen and Steve said “I Do” in a wonderfully personal ceremony conducted by Spiritual Celebrant Helen O’Sullivan.

While Kathleen and Steve headed to Caragh Lake for their wedding photographs with their photographer Shane Turner, their guests gathered in Kingston’s Pub for fireside drinks. The staff in Sol y Sombra were busy transforming Sol y Sombra from a ceremony venue to a wedding party venue!

The guests returned to Sol y Sombra for speeches, and informal dinner of passed tapas dishes and even a round of shots of Midori! After dinner the new Mr & Mrs along with the guests danced the night away.

Congratulations to Kathleen and Steve!
