The ceremony of marriage will be held in the Castle Leslie Estate at 4pm sharp on Sunday the 5th of June 2016.
Children are very welcome to the ceremony and during the champagne reception, but we would request that they are left with a babysitter before the meal.
A champagne reception and wedding breakfast will follow in the pavilion.
The following day, Monday the 6th of June is a Bank Holiday in Ireland, and Leo and Mark and our families will be staying on in Castle Leslie for another night and dissecting the gossip from the night before in the Coach House and Olde Bar in Glaslough. We would be delighted if some of you could stay along with us.

Mark and I are honoured that you are going to join us in the magical surroundings of Castle Leslie to share in our special day, finally after 21 years. Truly your presence alone is our gift!
We’re lucky enough after 20 years of living together to already have a home full of everything we need, and so in place of a traditional wedding registry we have decided to instead create a honey-fund, so you can contribute to our future and help make some of our honeymoon dreams come true.
