The wedding of Yvonne and Aaron took place in December – not long before Christmas. The ceremony was in Kilmainhamwood Church, and the reception in Cabra Castle Hotel, near Kingscourt Co. Cavan. Like the recent cold weather, it was also very frosty then, although there was some bright sunshine during the day.

Some photos of the groom and groomsmen. The bride was getting ready elsewhere, so missed-out on those early morning photos !
Lots of Christmas decorations and warm fires throughout the castle

The doves were outside Kilmainhamwood Church and were released after the ceremony. However, it was so cold that they needed a bit of encouragement to leave their nice warm cage !

Some floodlit photos of the main castle tower and the Banqueting Hall. Lots of extra lights and decorations for Christmas.

Top Table (with even more Christmas Trees).
I thought the hotel used very creative lighting all around, to create a wonderful atmosphere. A lot of the outside lighting was just for Christmas, but there is still plenty of floodlighting all year round.
