One gypsy traveler who hails from Ireland shocked the world after she ended up carrying out a massive marriage ceremony that entailed 73 best men.
According to local media reports, the event had the entire town in attendance and many are said to have traveled far distances to be a part of the grand holy matrimony.
The bride was identified as 18-year-old Chantelle Kielly that hails from the southwestern part of Ireland called Rathkeale.
Chantelle looked picture perfect for her dreamy event as she exchanged vows with her partner who also happens to be her first cousin.
On average, statistics showed how so many gypsy Irish families spend a good ten months traveling before they actually go back home for the wedding season. And that’s exactly what was shown during a recent episode of the show ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’ that caught so many people’s attention in February of this year.
This period also hails around 10 marriage ceremonies in just one week as loved ones work hard to host a grand reception while the town’s grand venues play host to so many couples.
For Chantelle’s wedding to Jim, there was simply no compromise. Many witnessed the bride’s groom pay out a massive sum of money in dowry that went up to 99,000 pounds.
In case you’re still wondering, it is still deemed legal to marry your own cousin in the United Kingdom as well as Ireland, despite so many issues regarding morality being raised on the subject.
In this case, the bride and groom claim they wanted to put up a wedding like a show that so many others would remember for a lifetime. And it’s safe to say that they managed to do just that.
Every little detail was like a fairytale. From the food and decor to the dress and guest list too- did we mention the 73 best men list? Now that’s what you call a grand affair!
