Poor auld Morning Mary may be proven wrong in the end but the two young ladies in this lovely Poole image seem to be dead ringers for each other. I love the light of hope and anticipation in the eyes of the bride and the shy look on the bridesmaid nearby. Commissioned by Mr. Mathew O'Brien ,Killinick, Co. Wexford it was clearly taken in the Poole Studio as the manky floor covering will attest!
