Our 6th day was spent at the WEDDING, the reason we planned this fabulous trip!! Isn’t the bride just LOVELY?!! And the proud Mum and Dada right by her side. :>
Buckle up, Irish weddings are LONG! I kept warning Steve and Leta that it was going to be a long, but fun day!
Sweet flowers on the ends of the pews made by the sister of the bride:
It’s a wedding, time for a hat:

I adore the look on mum’s face here. I am blessed to be treated like family by these people:
We all scramble for photos of the new bride and groom:
Giving instructions for the next stage of the celebrations:
Whoo Hoo! It’s reunion time!
Off to the farm for tea:
Proof that my hair did not fair well while I was there. Oh well, they look great:
Friends, together again:
The Girley gang (from the town of Girley):
Together 18 years later. It meant so much to me that they all kept saying to me, “Welcome home!” Exactly!
What could she be thinking?
Everyone loves a sweets bar:
A stack of Bodhrans for the Causey Farm business they run:
We were the only ones around for the getaway (to the hotel):
I didn’t get any great photos at the hotel reception…
We were so privileged to be a part of this joyous day with our dear friends! When the bride invited us soon after becoming engaged a year earlier, we were determined to make the trip happen! It was great motivation to plan another visit after 12 years!
Such a fun day…even if we did leave “early” after 13 1/2 hours!! It was only 2:30 in the morning, after all. ;>
And…the Instagram view:
A fun time was had by all!
