There’s a lovely church outside Blessington in Cross Chapel where the sun beamed down just long enough for Ciara and David’s wedding day. With all the rain lately, they were blessed with the weather (yes, a wedding day cliché, I know). After the church and some family photos, the bridal party went on to the beautifully restored Palladian style eighteenth century Castletown House in Celbridge. The grounds are certainly lovely for photographs, but if you ever get a chance to visit, I’d strongly recommend one of the guided tours of the house itself. Antonia and I did the tour a few years ago and it was fascinating.
The reception was at The Hamlet Court Hotel near Enfield Co. Meath. As usual, the staff looked after everyone extremely well. In fact, I am always bowled over by how friendly and helpful the staff are at this hotel. They genuinely go out of their way to ensure that everyone has a good a time as possible.
