Had a lovely day for the wedding of Barbara and Mark last Saturday. Despite the dire weather forecasts for various areas, we had a lovely bright Winter-sunny day. Mount Falcon is a lovely venue with wonderful grounds – including many fine trees, like the ones in the first few photos :

The Bride & Groom both got ready at the hotel – but in completely different parts – to avoid any accidental sightings ! The groom with his family and friends had time for a quick pint before heading off to the church.
The lovely Callow Church where the ceremony was held. Complete with a Harry Clarke studio stained-glass window, depicting St. Patrick

This was a genuine vintage Packard Presidential from 1930 (see the classic numberplate). The owner (Wedding Cars Ireland) mentioned that this car was once owned by Buster Keaton (the silent movie era Hollywood star). Sadly, the car is no longer available for hire.
After the ceremony, we managed to get a few photos down by the lake in the hotel grounds. It was a lovely evening, but getting quite dark as it was pretty close to sunset (and a bit chilly too – so thanks to all the wedding party for their perseverance)
Then, back to the hotel, where there was a warm fire and champagne waiting
Some of the lamps and candles used for the wedding reception
The main reception room was stunningly lit with a huge number of candles – the main lights were turned down very low to add to the atmosphere
