Family Wedding

Youngest daughter Aisling got married to her long time partner Nigel on Friday at a beautiful civil ceremony with a family lunch afterwards.They spent the weekend in Dublin so I was babysitting for the weekend which is why I have not been on blogging for a few days.

Most of the wedding group. It was just both families and it was a lovely intimate ceremony and a relaxed lunch and evening afterwards.
Kevin was dressed in his 'James Bond' tuxedo for the day!He was ring bearer and wrote a speech all by himself, after the speeches he wanted to say something so wrote it out and stood up and spoke.

Aisling always wanted a Christmas wedding with snow, we did not have snow on the day but the Christmas decorations were up and in the evening when it got dark we went to the park nearby which had been transformed into an Enchanted Forest for the Christmas market. We have not seen the pics of that yet but they will be beautiful. There was a miniature carousel there, the attendant cleared it for a few minutes to allow the happy couple to take some photos and Aisling threw her bouquet from the carousel.
The only downer to the day was Nigel's Mom could not attend as she was at home very sick having contracted swine flu.They went up to see her after the ceremony just so she could see them dressed in their wedding finery, she could only stand at the top of the stairs as they could not come into contact with her. It was heartbreaking for Nigel and his Mom who had been so looking forward to the day.
Normal service will resume in a day or two!

What an enchanting wedding and the bride was just gorgeous in her white dress. I know you must be a happy Mom. I loved the fact that Kevin wanted to have his say. Children are so precious and I know it meant a lot to the happy couple.
