It has been an extraordinary first year of marriage for the Earl and Countess of Erne. The man of the house, the seventh Earl of Erne - Lord Erne, John Crichton, or "John John" to his friends - wed Harriet Patterson in May last year, transforming the history of art graduate into a Countess on a sunny afternoon by the lakes in Co Fermanagh.

In a day steeped in tradition, with the bride arriving at the church in a traditional 'cot' on the water, Lord Erne made history as the first Earl of Erne to get married at Crom Church, just a quick boat ride away from the fabulous castle he now shares with his wife.
