Michelle & Dan

The fabulous weather continued on Saturday, 20 degrees and sunshine, just what everyone hopes for on their wedding day - and perfect for enjoying the grounds and gardens at Lough Rynn Castle. First though, I headed to Michelle's house on Cairns Hill where it really was all happening. Niall Magahy was filming, Katie Bannon was hard at work doing the make up - I just had to include a close up of Michelle's great green and gold eyes. The pink champagne was flowing, and Chief Bridesmaid Stef was prescribing little nerve-steadying brandies to anybody who'd take one before we left for the church.

Meanwhile, down the road where the lads were staying, things were much more serene. Everyone was suited and booted in lots of time, with the only cause for concern the fact that Shane had had his top lip nicked at the barbers during his hot shave. A touch of make-up did the trick though, and we all agreed nobody would slag him for wearing L'Oreal - because he's worth it.

En route to Lough Rynn Michelle & Dan popped into Derreen Woods - the bluebells are only out for two weeks a year so it would be a shame to drive past them. The bridal party travelled on in style in Michael McMahon's stretch limo, before switching to alternative transport. If Aidan had been on a public road he'd have been pulled for overloading that golf cart I'm sure.

Stef, Trish, Kim and Debbie looked great in their four shades of pink, but even so, they couldn't outshine Michelle, who was stunning in her Jenny Packham dress. I couldn't finish without mentioning Michelle's Dad Tony, who was so proud of hs daughter - you can see him in the mirror below, and who gave one of the nicest, most heartfelt speeches I've ever heard from a bride's father.
