On Friday, 10th August I attended the wedding of Louise and Keith as my boyfriend's plus one. (He works with Louise in a computing training centre). The ceremony was held in Killmallock church. The reception was held in the Springfort Hall Hotel near Mallow. We were the first of the guests to go into the church. As we didn't know the groom we accidentally walked past the groom at the door of the church. Oops!! When we got into the church we weren't sure which side to sit at (as sometimes its tradition for the bride's guests to sit on the left and the groom's guests to sit on the right). We sat half way down the church and on the left. The aisle of the church was gorgeously decorated with sunflowers as was the alter. The ceremony was lovely and her dress was gorgeous (pics below).

The weather was gorgeous so once we arrived at the reception everyone was outside having a cold drink in the gardens of the hotel. It was such a nice day for a wedding in Ireland. The photo's must have come out gorgeous. We were summoned into the banquet hall. We saw a board with the names for where to sit and the father of the bride asked us to sign a book. So my boyfriend signed it - he filled the entire line and forgot to sign my name hehe! Ah I'm not bothered though because they don't know me!! lol. He was the first to sign the book. Aww!
The cake was made up of a cupcake tower with a cake layer on top. The cake toppers were a bride holding a laptop and groom dressed as a chef.
As we entered the reception I instantly fell in love! There were fairy lights behind white netted curtains and flowing sheets on the ceiling! It looked like a wonderland! Absolutely gorgeous.

We sat at Table 8 - there was no theme to the wedding. We sat with others Daniel (my boyfriend) works with and there other half's. It was a four course dinner:
Starters: Chicken and mushroom vol au vonts, mellon or duck.
Course 2: Vegetable Soup
Mains: Lamb, Chicken and a vegetarian option.
Dessert: Sticky Toffee Pudding, Apple Crumble or Pavlova.
The dinner was really nice. The staff serving were a little slow but I can understand they had to serve 2 tables each.

We danced the night away and ate lots of finger food and sandwiches and had a few drinks. It was a great day. It was the first wedding I attended that wasn't a family members and also the first one I went to with my boyfriend :)
