Schalan Cullen from Park Avenue, Gorey, was a fashionable fifteen minutes late for her wedding at St Michael’s Church in Gorey on Friday, but she had a very good excuse.

When she should have been walking up the aisle at 1 p.m., she was casting her vote at Gorey Central School. Most of her bridesmaids Edel Cullen, Lauren Murphy, Tanya Cullen and Carla Kenny, had a vote at the same polling station, so they cast their votes too.

Schalan’s father Matt is a well-known supporter of Fianna Fáil, so he made sure she made a quick stop off at the polling station before crossing town to St Michael’s.

Her husband to be, Colin Fleming from Coolgreany, had cast his vote earlier in the day. The happy couple celebrated with family and friends in The Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy afterwards.
