Colin Firth sets heart racing in Drumquinna Mannor, Kenmare

They don't just do weddings in Kerry - they live them. And so it proved at Drumquinna Manor in Kenmare last Saturday at the nuptials for stunning Tonya Meli and her dreamboat beau Gerald Casey.

Not only are they an incredibly trendy duo (the bride is from county Down and is a London-based super-agent to the stars, while the groom is a top businessman who hails from Tipperary), but they are obviously two of the most popular and well-connected Mr and Mrs on the planet.

This I say without fear of contradiction because the guests at the wedding included at least three international superstars - Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Michelle Rodriguez to say nothing of Naomie Harris, gun-toting MI6 agent in the recent James Bond film Skyfall.

The 200 or so guests' mouths were perhaps falling open when the star of Lost, Michelle Rodriguez, got up at some point and sang Fly Me To The Moon with Shane McGrath's legendary wedding band Harlequin. The wedding band are no strangers to superstar wedding hoolies, of course, having played at David and Victoria Beckham's do in 1999 at Luttrellstown Castle.

It was clearly one of those weddings to remember. But there were two jarring notes. There was no Oliver Callan to send up all the celebrity guests and there was a team from OK! magazine. 
Apart from those minor glitches, it all sounded like a right Kerry on.
