Jane & Richard relaxing at Castlegarde Castle, Co. Limerick.

The wedding took place on Saturday last of Miss Jane Thompson, daughter of Mrs Hazel and Mr David Thompson, ‘Castlegarde,’ Cappamore, Co. Limerick, to Mr Richard Reynolds, son of Mrs Catherine and Mr Stephen Reynolds, Yorkshire, England.
The wedding ceremony took place in the historic St John’s Cathedral, Cashel, Co. Tipperary, presided over by the Rector and Dean to the parish of Cashel, The Very Reverend Dr. P. J. Knowles.

Escorted down the aisle by her father Mr David Thompson, the bride looked stunningly beautiful in an off-white Spanish lace bridal gown, with fitted bodice, and full length veil, held in place by a Yorkshire handmade pearl tiara.

Equally beautiful were her bridesmaids, Mrs Lynda Alberts and Miss Karen Willoughby, who complimented the occasion wearing full-length, indigo, halter neck evening gowns.

The couple exchanged their vows in front of a large gathering of family and close friends, some of whom had travelled from England, Holland and South Africa for this special occasion. Music and song for the ceremony was performed by the celebrated and talented singer Miriam Blennerhassett, a founder member of Anúna, accompanied on Cathedral piped organ by Mr Peter Barley, from St. Mary’s Cathedral Limerick.

Following the ceremony, the newly married Mr and Mrs Reynolds retired to the bride’s luxurious home ‘Castlegarde’ Castle, Cappamore, Co. Limerick, one of the oldest inhabited castles in Ireland. On their arrival to ‘Castlegarde,’ guests were entertained to a champagne reception and other light refreshments.

Following family photographs, the newly married couple joined their guests for a lavish four course meal on the grounds of the castle, which was followed by live music and dancing very late into the evening.

From all their family and many friends in Co.Tipperary go best wishes to them both for a happy, healthy and prosperous life together.
