We were so excited in the chapel, excited and emotional, it was just all so beautiful, be warned, I may have to say that a lot, and HOT! Thank goodness for the fans, the church was a sea of elegant waving…

The light! The light put a sheen on that which was already beautiful…italiagroup at italia

And then, between church and reception we stepped into Italy it seemed.  Family, fun, and refreshments in a golden side street..

Just not for me! I was way too busy taking photographs.

With all the beauty and inspiration I couldn’t help it, there was even a green door… Lisa loves green too and it gave us the perfect backdrop to her beautiful dress and dark hair…green close

Just time for a quick selfie with Shaylyn before we moved on to the reception venue. This, as you can see, is a rare shot of my eyes, and they’re still not fully open…Jane and Shaylyn at wedding

Next we were whisked away to a privately owned villa, Razzett L-Abjad… yes really, sigh…

The perfect setting I’m sure you’ll agree, for beautiful Irish women, in turquoise (shoes/jewels) coral and blue eyes…bridesmaids 2 money shot 3

The tables were spread under the vines heavy with ripe sweet grapes and the guests moved around in a dreamlike haze, the heady scent of bougainvilla in their wake… Jane

We spent the day in a fairytale, the afternoon in a movie, the night in a storybook, every detail was perfect but at the heart was the people, Colm, Lisa, family and friends. The speeches brought with them fresh tears as love flowed to the top and you could feel it, and that was the real magic. Jane
