Wed­ding pics taken as flood wa­ters rise

Bray People - - Bray People -

TOR­REN­TIAL RAIN and un­con­trol­lable floods could not dampen the spir­its of one happy cou­ple as they cel­e­brated their mar­riage on Fri­day.

Peter Moore from Avoca and his beau­ti­ful bride Hazel Lawlor from Adamstown in Co. Wex­ford tied the knot in Avoca and were de­ter­mined to get some wed­ding pho­tos taken at The Meet­ings, a tra­di­tional spot cho­sen for pic­tures by new­ly­weds. They did not let weather con­di­tions de­ter them.

The fam­ily in fact came up with the per­fect so­lu­tion to keep their guests en­ter­tained un­til the del­uge sub­sided.

All 130 of them gath­ered at The Meet­ings pub owned by the groom’s fa­ther Peter Moore Snr while Peter and Hazel popped in and out be­tween show­ers to take pic­tures.

De­spite the fact that the wa­ter level was four feet higher than usual, the cou­ple were not de­terred and posed as close as pos­si­ble to the Meet­ing of the Wa­ters.

Shortly af­ter­wards the wed­ding party ar­rived at the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel for the re­cep­tion where a great night was had by all.

Peter, son of Peter and Mar­ion Moore, Avoca and Hazel, daugh­ter of Rena and Martin Lawlor, Adamstown, Co. Wex­ford jet­ted off on hon­ey­moon to Sin­ga­pore and Thai­land on Tues­day.
