The castle and grounds were quiet as it is closed on the day of a wedding. Inside the castle it was a hive of activity with preparations for the wedding. The wedding breakfast room was being dressed and the ceremony room was having some final touches made. It was looking really special.
Conor arrived by coach with his family who were over from Ireland staying at a local hotel for a pre- ceremony drink and photographs. The coach returned later with more guests some who had travelled as far from America for the wedding celebrations.
With the brides arrival imminent the guests took their seats. Tracey looked stunning and was soon ready to walk up the aisle with Alan her father to Conor who was waiting for her. Tracey made her entrance to the traditional sound of bagpipes.
The ceremony was full of happiness, smiles and laughter which reflects the couples personalities. With the formalities over the couple were ready to leave the ceremony, the guests burst into song with ‘Thank You for the music’, Tracey was unaware that this was going to happen and from the laughter and smiles it was obvious that she really enjoyed it.
The guests were greeted as they left the ceremony, another Irish tradition and were then invited to join the couple on the steps of the castle for a photograph of everyone before a drinks reception on the lawn at the rear of the castle. In the sun it was really quite pleasant and while the guests enjoyed champagne and canapes the formal group photographs were taken.
We took Tracey and Conor off for a short time around the grounds for photos of the newly married couple. As we were coming to the end of our time with them the guests were invited to take their seats for the wedding breakfast, with everyone seated the couple were announced in to a rapturous round of applause.
We would like to thank everyone for making the day run smoothly and wish Conor and Tracey all the very best for their future together. We look forward to seeing them again soon.
