This wedding took place a few weeks ago – all in locations not far from the River Shannon. The bride, bridesmaids and family got ready in a lovely old rented cottage – not far from the church. The day started off almost fine – but the rain soon arrived, and stayed with us for the rest of the wedding. We had planned some locations and photographs – but all these had to be changed due to the weather. However, I think everyone enjoyed themselves despite this – and made the most of the three locations. Firstly the lovely old Meelick Church, then on to a family home for refreshments – finally finishing off the evening at the Old Fort Restaurant, in Shannonbridge.
