“These two are next” Glynis said to me with a barely noticeable nod in the direction of Naomi and Mark cuddled up close. She has a knowing smile on her face and adds: “They are good together.” That was two years ago at Daniel and Emily’s wedding. Daniel is Mark’s brother. And Glynis is Mark’s mother.
Fast forward to earlier this year and it’s Glynis again who gets in touch, telling me how Naomi and Mark got engaged and how they’ll get married this year and if possible, how they’d all love to have me there as the photographer again. This may seem odd at first but not if you know the Good family – they are truly fabulous people. Every single one of them. And I now count Naomi and her family among them as yet again I was able to be a part of an amazing wedding day. Coming back to Ireland and walking into a house full of people I knew felt a little bit like sinking into a warm, soft pillow. Exhale and relax. And take it all in.
What followed was a most wonderful ceremony at Crinken Church, a drinks reception in the almost-sunny but still quite blustery afternoon with a view over Powerscourt Gardens and a reception at Powerscourt House. There was so much warmth and happiness around us, so much laughter and joy that I can only agree with what Glynis said to me two years ago: They are good together.
