The hitching post


Some pictures from Wedding 1. It was held in an old colonial/baronial mansion near Tralee, now turned into a hotel after the Ascendancy skedaddled: its mix of luxury and run-down charm reminded me of Castle Rackrent or The Majestic from Farrell's wonderful Troubles. It even had donkeys and a massive, docile Irish wolfhound wandering about, snaffling food from the tables and submitting to the attentions of assorted toddlers and drunks (i.e. me).

I got to wander around taking pictures of the preparation - even the bride's boudoir!
