FERRY HAPPY! thumbnail The bridal party’s wedding cars and their guests make their way off the ferry last week

Plain sailing into marriage for Kilkeel couple who use ferry to travel to venue.


THERE were wedding bells on Carlingford Lough last week when a Kilkeel couple travelled to their reception on the new ferry crossing - getting some memorable photographs on the way.

Fresh from its maiden voyage at the end of July, Scenic Carlingford Ferry welcomed on board their first bride and groom making the crossing from Greencastle to Greenore in Co Louth.

Following their ceremony in Kilkeel, the new Mr and Mrs Robert and Rebecca Irvine made the most of a beautiful day to cross Carlingford Lough on their way to the reception in Castlebellingham, with a quick stop before boarding at the 13th century Greencastle castle for some wedding snaps.

Mourne woman Pamela Houston, chief executive of Scenic Carlingford Ferry, was on hand to congratulate the happy couple as they made the swift 15-minute crossing from Co Down to Co Louth.

"Normally our passengers are treated to the beautiful sights of the lough, but today I think Mr and Mrs Irvine and the wedding party stole the show."

Scenic Carlingford Ferry is offering free ferry-crossings for brides and grooms, along with one other wedding party vehicle on their big day.

"The best day of your life should be enjoyed, Scenic Carlingford Ferry ensures you can get the most out of your special day - saving you time while also providing truly unique photography opportunities as you take in the breath-taking backdrop of Carlingford Lough between Greencastle and Greenore," added Mrs Houston.
