Pre wedding BBQ

Tomorrow on the longest day of the year Ciaran (my first cousin) will marry his sweetheart, Domonie, at our local church, followed by a wedding reception at Carton House. Last night we spent the evening (yes it was dry)at Martinstown House, a chance for the International families and guests to meet before the big event.

After the food, we had Irish dancing in the garden,

Domonie, bride to be, introduced her Guyanese and Canadian family to the Irish family

The sun even shone for a while, and the tables were dressed in pretty pastel linens. It was Pimms o clock all evening.

Ciaran and Domonie mingled with all the guests, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, cousin in laws, young and old, all happy to share in the occassion.

Domonie's sister Kayla arrived in peach with pearls, a New York girl sharing her style,

Mother of the groom and aunt of the bride share some smiles,

Uncle Pat and Mr. Margie get on board the magic carpet, while the musicians strike up just before we lit the candles at dusk.

Wedding photos to follow.

Big hugs,
