WED­DING bells rang out for Sheila Mur­phy and Jamie Good re­cently. The cou­ple, who are both from Cork city, were wed in a hu­man­ist cer­e­mony led by Bill Chase in The Mar­itime Ho­tel in Bantry where they also held their re­cep­tion.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Micheal O’Sul­li­van cap­tured the big day on cam­era in­clud­ing a photo-shoot in Bantry House and Gar­dens.

The bride’s sis­ter Caro­line Mur­phy was chief brides­maid while the groom’s friend Barry Fin­negan was best man.

Sheila and Jamie met through mu­tual friends in Cork nearly a decade ago and got en­gaged in Cork in Oc­to­ber 2013.

“Our big day was fan­tas­tic. Jamie had wanted an out­door cer­e­mony from the day we booked Bantry House but I wasn’t sure it would work given the Ir­ish weather. He was right, though, the weather was amaz­ing and we had a beau­ti­ful out­door cer­e­mony,” said Sheila.

“It was very ro­man­tic. As the weather was so good guests could ex­plore the gar­dens dur­ing the drinks re­cep­tion. The Mar­itime catered the drinks re­cep­tion as well as host­ing the rest of the re­cep­tion and every­thing was ex­actly as we’d re­quested. Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy every part of the day. We were very happy with every­thing.”

The bri­dal hair and make-up were done at The Mar­itime by The Up­stylist and make-up artist Linda Collins. “Linda was a life­saver on the morn­ing, jump­ing in to help with flow­ers and dresses when the make-up was all per­fectly fin­ished,” said Sheila.

The bride looked pic­ture-per­fect in a dress and shoes bought in Bella Bleu in Cork City while the groom and his party were dap­per in suits by Tom Mur­phy’s, Cork City.

The cou­ple’s friend Ed­die O’Con­nor, head pas­try chef at Hay­field Manor Ho­tel, cre­ated the de­lec­ta­ble wed­ding cake as his wed­ding gift.

The bride has just fin­ished a Higher Di­ploma in CIT and the groom cur­rently works in Nor­way.

The new­ly­weds, who re­side in Cork, hon­ey­mooned in Crete.
