Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel Weddings

Congratulations to Claire and Gareth who were married on the 5th of May in St Mary’s Chapel Lagg Co. Donegal followed by a fantastic Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel Weddings reception for their families and friends. I started my day off with a lovely scenic drive up to the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal where Claire was getting ready at home with her bridesmaids Meabh, Tara, Michelle and Laura. There was a great buzz of excitement in the house and I was blown away by the magnificent views of the Donegal coast and the ever changing light. It was great to meet and work alongside Holly Cassidy who was on video duty for the wedding day.  The wedding ceremony took place in St Mary’s in Lagg and this is hands down the best setting for a Church you will ever come across- on arrival at the church I met with Gareth and his groomsmen David, Vincent and Niall who were all busy welcoming the arriving guests and page boy Arron and flowergirl Aoibheann who were busy getting photos taken by all the guests.

After the ceremony which had beautiful music and singing provided by Joanne Mc Clelland from Armagh and Clare Galway from Belfast we made our way to a stunning viewpoint on Knockamany which had amazing views across the Peninsula and down over the Five Fingers Strand, the bridal cars were provided by Lisdale Signature Wedding Cars and did a great job getting around the narrow winding roads. The weather could not have been kinder to us with sunny spells and although it was a bit windy it added so much life to the wedding photos especially with Claire’s veil blowing in the wind and also for the throwing of the bouquet which was amazing and was provided by Heaven Scent in Carndonagh. We also had time to go down to Pollan Bay for some photos on the beach before we made our way up to Ballyliffin Lodge hotel for the wedding reception. The beautiful wedding cake was actually made by both Claire and Gareth’s parents and was iced by Mandy McLaughlin. The wedding band for the evening entertainment were the Untouchables from Belfast and they had the floor filled from the off. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Claire and Gareth for having me as part of their amazing wedding day and to wish them the very best of everything for the future.
