My cousin married his beautiful fiancé on Saturday in Ireland, I have had such a lovely weekend filled with family and love.

We flew to Knock, where my cousins Wife is from and stayed in The Clarion Hotel in Sligo, which is also where the wedding was. The hotel was amazing, the outside looks very Elizabethan with beautiful green grounds and an idyllic scenic view of the mountains. And the inside is modern with several pieces of abstract art on each floor. The rooms are huge and well decorated and guests have access to the spa which we very much took advantage of.

We started the day with a lovely breakfast and trip to the spa.
Then we prepared for the wedding.

The ceremony was so emotional and truly beautiful filled with; Irish traditions, crying, singing, lovely music, jokes, their adorable nieces and their dog Ruby bringing them their rings.

The speeches were layered with jokes and memories. My cousin loves horse racing, so each table was race course themed and everyone was allowed to place a bet on how long they thought; the Groom, Best Man and Father of the Bride’s speech would last. It was a great idea and added a little fun to the emotion and lovely words in the speeches.

It really was a really great day and everyone is so happy for the happy couple.

The next day most of the wedding guests were invited to a BBQ at the brides parents’ house and then on to their Pub- Mooneys Bar. It was great to see everyone again and get to know our new Irish family even more.
