The Wedding Celebration of
Marnie Vaughan and Nicholas Edwards
May 21, 2007
County Clare, Ireland
"In Ireland, the inevitable never happens and
the unexpected constantly occurs."
-Sir John Pentland Mahaffy
Now sweetly lies old Ireland, Emerald green beyond the foam
Awakening sweet memories, Calling the heart back home
The Irish believe in impossible things just long enough to make them come true. The Irish invented rosy cheeks, giggles and being stubborn. The Irish wear freckles where angels have kissed them. The Irish sing songs when they're happy and sing them even louder when they're sad. The Irish dance dangerous jigs and write passionate poetry and can tell the most magical stories of all. The Irish are the guardians of the little bit of heaven that once fell very gently from the sky.
"Ireland is rich in literature that understands a soul's yearnings,
and dancing that understands a happy heart."
"The wildest, loneliest country that I know, a country of hills and hollows, of lakes and woods, of cliffs, mountains, rivers, inlets of sea, sands, ruined castles, and memories from the beginning of the world."
-George Bernard Shaw
Céad míle fáilte daoibh go hÉirinn, a chairde!
One hundred thousand welcomes to Ireland, dear friends!
Well, welcome to our website anyway! I hope you'll find plenty of interesting things here to get you excited about planning a trip to Ireland. I'm delighted at the prospect of sharing with my dearest friends and family, the place which all of you know is so very special to me. To do so on this special occasion makes it all the more wonderful.
I've included on this site a variety of favorite photos that I have taken in Ireland. For those of you who have been bored silly with my vast collection over the years, you'll appreciate how hard it was to pick just a few images that epitomize the diversity of the countryside. Check out one of my favorite websites, irelandscape.com, with gorgeous photos that I could only ever dream about taking!
Enjoy the site, and don't hesitate to contact us if you would like any more information. We hope to see you in the Emerald Isle!
Love to all,
Marnie and Nick

Your feet will take you to where your heart is.
