Purple Rain – Nessa & Daragh’s Real Wedding at Glasson by Couple Photography

Nessa and Daragh were married at the fabulous Glasson Country Club in Westmeath, during one of Ireland’s longest and hottest summer months in recent history.

Mother nature can be a cruel matriarch but wasn’t a force strong enough to hamper the bride and groom’s fabulous celebration, which was captured beautifully by the lovely Ros Byrne of Couple Photography.
