Julie & Danny

There was a feel of a Mayo All-Ireland Final Day on Thursday, as Kiltimagh closed up shop and headed to Kilronan Castle for the big match between Julie & Danny. This time they were guaranteed a win. The build-up had started on Tuesday, when all the key players checked into Kilronan, so the party had been going for two days by the time I arrived on Thursday morning.

The weather was glorious - blue skies & sunshine, just what everyone wants on their wedding day. Julie looked fabulous in her intricate lace dress, while her bridesmaid Jane did a Pippa on it in elegant blue. Danny too cut a dash, in his Hugo Boss suit from Louis Copeland and his brand-new Audi A5. The guests mingled over champagne on the patio outside the Dungeon Bar before dinner and it was obvious this was a very stylish affair. And there was one guest who attracted nearly as much attention as the bridal party - Julie's cousin Mark, who'd put a great deal of time and thought into his outfit for the big day, before opting for a Jeeves & Wooster look, complete with bowtie, man-bag and non-prescription glasses as accessories to complete the look.

There were lots of familiar faces around on the day - the lovely Annette Smyth did the girls' make-up, Michael Freyene was on video, Sinead Conway sang in the Church and again later as part of The Swing & Soul Review, Carmel from La Belle Fleur provided the flowers, while the cake came from Sharon in Cannaboe Confectionery. As I post this, Julie & Danny are in Frankfurt airport about to get on a plane for a dream honeymoon in Bali & Australia - have fun guys!
