Megan (from Ireland) & Olav (from Holland) had a distinctly urban wedding. It featured a Humanist ceremony in Dublin’s City Hall, drinks and pastries at Street 66, a vintage bus tour of Dublin and a reception at The Drury Buildings.
A smooth start to the day was brutally ended when a hapless Olav had both his hands handcuffed together by a rogue guest. The guest had cunningly used the couple's handfasting ceremony as a pretext to launch the attack. Fortunately, a key to the cuffs was found and Olav was free to enjoy the rest of his day. Following some drinking lessons from the Dutch contingent at Street 66, everyone hopped on a vintage bus for a tour through the couple's old haunts. The Drury Buildings hosted everyone for the dinner and speeches. A surprise personal video message from wrestling superstar Ric Flair
had many in tears. As did an unforgettable rendition of The Rattlin' Bog
by Megan's friend. The Dutch were speechless. It was the Irish's turn to be speechless when Olav's childhood school teacher performed a reality-shattering, 23 minute, improvised puppet show.
Music aficionados (check out Olav's playlists here
), the couple had disco, funk and soul classics banging all night long - to the crowd's delight.
