Rosemarie & John - Lough Rynn

A lot of people who come from further afield to get married at Lough Rynn have their ceremony in Aughavas. I guess partly that's the Brian & Amy effect. Rosemarie & John chose the equally attractive alternative of St Patrick's Church in Mohill, which stands on the hill overlooking the town. The interior was beautifully decorated by florist, Clare Lawless. Little details were a feature of this wedding, with tasteful vintage items appearing everywhere, from the table plan to the bicycle outside the Church. Rosemarie got ready in Dara Madden's Brooklawn Lodge, which is itself a vintage building (1790) with many of it's original features intact. There's a great quality of light in an old house like that, which is quite different from modern large-windowed buildings.

A day ahead of Fathers' Day, Rosemarie's Dad, Jimmy, left the entire congregation with a lump in the throat with his emotional end-of-ceremony reflection, but after that it was all smiles, not least when The Singing Waiter burst into song over dinner. Best man David conducted the crowd, waving his napkin over his head to the strains of "That's Amoré" and within moments the room was a sea of napkins. A joyful moment on a great day.
