Big Barn Wedding Bash - The Speeches

After the 'Big Barn Bash' when Jonny and I had time to read back the messages in our guest book one recurring comment was how much everyone enjoyed our speeches and of course there are a few people to thank for that…

My mum Mary was the first to share a few heartfelt words. Her courage to stand up in place of my dad made Jonny and I feel so proud after all the obstacles she's faced so far this year. Following ma, my sister Francesca took over to share some slightly more embarrassing tales from my childhood which I’d hoped had been long forgotten…

Next up was Mr Shackleton himself, thanking our families and raising a toast to those who couldn’t be with us. Jonny’s cousin Joe and our good friend Billy then surprised us with an impromptu speech in place of the best man Josh who unfortunately couldn’t be with us on the day and had arranged this replacement ‘act’ who had the room successfully in fits of laughter!

To finish the speeches my bridesmaid and little cousin Orla said some beautiful words with her wit and charm capturing the whole rooms attention.
