Today is March 2nd 2019. It is a pretty average spring day. It’s warm and damp and about 9 degrees outside. This day last year the country had come to a stand still. More snow than you could shake a stick at and below freezing temps. Kilkenny was the eye of the storm and also the location for Marita and Niall’s wedding.
Of course it wasn’t ideal. There was a bit of worrying and fears that guests and suppliers would not make it but the day had a little extra magic because of it. All of the suppliers did everything in their power to be there and made it with bell’s on. It seemed that everyone gave it 110% to make it that little bit extra for Marita and Niall.
Unfortunately some of the guests couldn’t make it but when the guests did arrive it was a mini celebration, every time and the excitement was unreal.
Lancton’s is the cosiest venue and perfect for a cold dark day. Whilst the streets of Kilkenny were empty Lanctons Hotel was warm, buzzing and brimming with love and excitement.
Happy anniversary Marita and Niall. I hope you are doing something wonderful. I really enjoyed spending a couple of days with you and your family. Even though I was trapped in Kilkenny it felt like a holiday. What an adventure. See you at the next wedding!
