Ursula & Manus' Wedding

Considering the good weather has been lingering into September these last few years, we were not let down over the weekend and were in County Tyrone for our third wedding of 2006. It was pure blue sky as we made our way through the winding countryside to Glenullin, a hamlet a few kilometres from Garvagh for the church ceremony. The church itself was moderately decorated and still held the portrait of Pope John Paul II instead of Benedict XVI despite his election nearly 18 months ago - just like the Catholic church to be slow to change!

The ceremony went smoothly and I'm sure if the service required a few more kneels to pray, local parishes could release workout videos for out-of-shape sinners. Two hours later after exchanging rings and vows, Ursula and Manus left as ball and chain and we gathered by the doorway to wish them well and of course take some pictures.

After the wedding we left for Cookstown for the reception and enjoyed a three course meal some band music and everyone go to witness my incredible dancing skills aided by a few glasses of wine and bravado. Congratulations to the bride and groom!

Trust you all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow.
