A stunning shot of Caroline Townend and her husband James Buckley after their wedding at Ballybeg House, Co Wicklow. Caroline was previously one of the team at HRI before joining Cork Racecourse recently as operations manager. James works for Pöttinger in Clonmel.


Family and friends joined the couple along with brother and sister jockeys Paul and Jody and their father Tim. Some of the staff at Willie Mullins’, friends of the bride, joined the party including Ruth Dudfield who left her precious charges in the yard and brought along the delicious wedding cake she had made.

The couple have taken a break in Ireland and but it’s all hands on deck on their return as they are in the middle of building a house. Best of luck!
