Was at a friends’ agnostic wedding ceremony last night upstairs in the Odeon on Harcourt St. Jen and Ian got married over in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. They organised a wedding party last night, getting the fabulous and always irrepressible Thomas Dunning to preside over the affair. Ian swore to protect Jen “from the Hooded Claw, and to keep the vampires from her door”. Thomas finished off with saying to Jen that she may now “kiss the groom”, a nice touch.

Music was provided by various individuals, including a group comprised of Mumblin’ Deaf Ro, Conor, Brian and Mike from various incarnations of assorted Dublin bands, and a rather good rockabilly band called Aces Wild that had lots of dancers dancing and swingers swinging.

A special mention should be made for the Cake, comprised as it was of two-tiers of gore-splatter, with Kill Bill’s The Bride and a appetizingly green zombie from Day Of The Dead adorning its upper level.

Omelette, Ian’s band, played a rather good version of Purple Rain at one point in the night too. Wonderful night, great to meet up with all the mates from Things/Thumped/Ballroom of Romance from over the years. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Just stumbled across your post.
Were both very touched by your account of the night.
Great photo’s too!
On a pedantic note, the zombie was the zombie from the gas station in Dawn of the Dead not Day of the Dead.

It was a night we’ll always remember, and we’re delighted that others had such a great time also.

J&I
