White wedding for couple who braved snow
The snow clad garden and frozen fountain at the Carrickdale Hotel proved the perfect backdrop for the wedding photos of Monaghan couple Jemma Smith and Colm Matthews.
The couple, who tied the knot on Saturday, braved the icy conditions to pose for memorable photos in the hotel grounds.
'We were really worried that we wouldn't be able to go ahead with the wedding, right up until Friday night, Jemma told The Argus.
'We had 120 guests, mostly from around Monaghan, but we had a couple from Cork and a couple who were supposed to be coming from Holland but they weren't able to make it.'
'It was just so beautiful with the snow on Saturday that we had to go out and get some photos taken in the grounds, even though it was freezing.'
