Nathan and I flew out to Dublin early on the Saturday morning and after spending a great weekend with my friend and flatmate from university, Diana we went back out to the airport to meet up with Hillary who was driving down from Belfast in a hire car.
We then drove across to Co.Wicklow where Emma and Sean's wedding was being held. The hotel was gorgeous and so quaint! (but more about that later!)
On the Sunday night Sean's parents hosted an amazing rehearsal dinner- it was a superb buffet!
We had great fun reconnecting with all of the Irish girls from the Madrid Hen weekend. I also had meet all Emma's family at her sister's wedding in Ireland a year and a half ago so felt like I knew so many people! I joked that I probably knew more people than I would at my own wedding! It was like seeing old friends again- they are all so hospitable!

Emma kept to her word and headed off to bed before midnight but myself and Nathan along with Hills and all the Irish girls and boys stayed up a bit longer. We were reasonably good but I think the Irish contingent were suffering a little the next day!!
What a great night and a fantastic start to the wedding celebrations!!
