Louise & Enda, Wedding, Tourlestraun Co.Sligo to Knockranny House, Westport, Co.Mayo
Italian Grand Prix, Monza, 2006…I put my hand in my pocket and wham, stung by the biggest wasp on the planet! Wasps in Italy in September are massive and super aggressive. An hour later, stung again, same hand. That was the first time in my life I had been stung by a wasp. Little did I know my hand would swell right up and I’d have to get sorted by the Toyota F1 team doctor!! Fast forward to Louise & Enda’s wedding, and I think at this stage everybody in Ireland knows the wasps are out in force now, for whatever reason…they’re everywhere! Thankfully, they’re way smaller than the Italian ones, but low and behold as I was waiting for Louise to arrive at the church, stung again, on the wrist this time! With no Formula 1 team doctor on site, during the ceremony I ran out to the car and popped a few anti-histamines and that was more or less it bar a little tenderness! A wedding like an Formula 1 race goes on, so you just suck it up and get on with things!
Louise & Enda’s wedding was a good one! With great guests, a super relaxed couple and everything running on time, and somehow the weather cooperated, meant we were able to get nearly all the pictures outside! Following the ceremony in County Sligo, we made our way to Westport, stopping off in nearby Turlough House, which is great at any time of the year, but especially now with the gardens in full bloom.
Sting update…it took a full week for it to go fully! But jez, the wasps are even worse out there now! Stay safe everyone!!
Congrats again Louise and Enda! Thanks for having me at your wedding! It was a pleasure working with you all!
