Next is a wedding from the Autumn. Donna & Cillian were married in the church at Ballapousta (Ardee) last Autumn. we then went on to Stephenstown Pond for a few photos before heading to the (very high !) Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dundalk for the reception. The day was lovely and sunny – if a little damp. Typical enough for Autumn in Ireland. In case you don’t guess – there’s a green theme to the wedding !
