Solis Lough Eske Castle Weddings Michelle + Ryan

Congratulations to Michelle and Ryan who were married on the 28th of October 2017 in St Patrick’s Church Donegal town followed by a brilliant wedding reception in the 5 star Solis Lough Eske Castle Hotel in Donegal for their families and friends. I started my day off with a trip down to Lough Eske Castle where Michelle and her bridesmaid Aoife were getting ready. Once you clear the tree lined road and the castle emerges from the woods it is obvious why Michelle and Ryan would choose to be married here- such an amazing gem of a location and venue. When I arrived in the room Michelle and Aoife were getting hair and makeup done by the very talented Louise Mc Donnell from LMD Salon. The girls were very relaxed and Michelle’s mum Kathleen and dad James were on hand to help keep the girls in great spirits.

Great Northern Hotel Bundoran Winter Wedding Laura + Daimon

Congratulations to Laura and Daimon who were married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in the Great Northern Hotel Bundoran on the 2nd March 2018. Ah the 2nd of March 2018 – storm Emma– red and orange weather warnings issued- half of Ireland neck deep in snow and the rest battered by winds and extreme cold- we didn’t get the snow in Bundoran but by God we got the cold in bucket loads!! Baltic it was- but it didn’t stop Laura and Daimon going to the top of Rougey for their photos- it may have been 10 degrees below zero with the wind chill but everyone battled on and smiled through it and as a result we got a beautiful set of images to show and thankfully everyone thawed out within 48 hours!!

Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding

Congratulations to Janet and Declan who were married in St John’s Cathedral in Sligo town on the 5th of August followed by a fantastic Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding reception for their families and friends.

The 5th of August was one of those rare Irish summer days when that great ball of burning gas in the sky fondly know as the Sun made an all too rare appearance- and to put the cherry on top it also happened to be Janet and Declan’s wedding day Whooohhooo. I started my day off with a quick stop off at Declan’s house where he was getting ready alongside his groomsmen Maurice, Damien and Shane. The boy were in great form and enjoyed the craic without a worry in the world present. I also met up with videographer for the day Peter Mullaney from Mullaney Media who was being ably assisted by Chris Dykes from CDykes Photography and Design and it was great working alongside the boys again on such a great wedding.

Markree Castle Wedding

Congratulations to Éilis and Ross who got married on the 15th of July 2017 in a beautiful wedding ceremony in St John the evangelist Church in Tubbercurry followed by a fantastic Markree Castle Wedding reception for their families and friends. The 15th of July was a typical day for the summer of 2017 in that it had no sun and no heat but plenty of wind and rain and grey skies- none of this however was going to take the smiles of happiness away from Éilis and Ross and their families and friends.

I started the day off with a trip to Markree Castle where Éilis and her bridesmaids Trisha, Grace, Maria and Caroline were getting ready. Now Markree Castle Wedding venue is one stunning place- it has recently been renovated and to say I was impressed is an understatement- I could have spent two days just going around the castle getting detail shots as every single nook and cranny had something interesting and if amazing stained glass windows floats your boat then a Markree Castle Wedding has to be on your list! The girls were getting hair and makeup done in a beautiful room with floor to ceiling windows by Salon 2 and Roy Wong and after a few candid photos I went to get some detail shots of the wedding dress and the beautiful Jimmy Choo shoes in the bedroom. On arrival we also met up with James Carr from JC Media who was on hand to take care of the videography for the day. It is always great to work alongside James as he is a true professional in his work and so easy to work alongside- you can view some of James’s cinematic style wedding videography here.

Congratulations to Nicola and Ben who were married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in St Patrick’s Church Dromahair Co. Leitrim followed by a fantastic Castle Dargan Hotel Summer Wedding reception for their families and friends.

The morning of the 6th of August was a mixed bag really with some wind and rain mixed in with some sunshine and blue sky but no matter what the weather was going to throw at us I knew that Nicola and Ben would take it all in their stride and happiness always wins the day.

I started off my wedding photography coverage with a trip to Sligo to Nicola’s home house where Nicola and her bridesmaids Sinead, Ciara and Jen were getting ready. On arrival the girls were busy getting hair and makeup done and this was being expertly handled Gemma Crossan and by Niamh Mc Morrow who also happens to be Nicola’s sister in law – you can check out Niamh’s fabulous work on her Facebook page Beauty On Your Doorstep By Niamh here.

Glencolmcille Wedding Aine + Aidan

Congratulations to Aine and Aidan who were married in the beautiful Donegal village of Glencolmcille in St Columba’s Church on the 21st of April 2107 with a brilliant reception for their families and friends in the Blue Haven hotel in Kilcar Co. Donegal.

I started my day off with a lovely scenic drive into the heart of the Donegal countryside- for me this is the proper Donegal- the wild side of the county with amazing mountain and sea views at every turn- I always pat myself on the back when I arrive to the bride’s house in this part of the world as it is very easy to get distracted with the amazing views and not pay any attention to the very narrow and winding roads which could lead to a car in the ditch scenario!

Congratulations to Lindsay and Colm who were married in St Brigid’s Church Golan in Milford Co. Donegal on the 12th of May 2017 followed by a brilliant Clanree Hotel Letterkenny Wedding reception for their families and friends. The 12th of May 2017 was what we call in Ireland “a grand soft day” which means it was cloudy with little wind and a mist of rain now and again but nothing to get excited about and certainly nothing to make you rush home and take the washing in off the line! I started my day off with a stop off with Colm and his groomsmen Donal and Daragh who were getting ready in Colm’s home house just outside of Milford. The boys were all very relaxed and I got a few quick shots with them before making my way to the other side of Milford town to Willow Farm where Lindsay and her bridesmaids Vicky and Louise were getting ready. The girls were even more relaxed than the boys and we got some lovely photos of Lindsay in her beautiful wedding dress inside the house before going outside and making use of the beautiful garden.

Congratulations to Donna and Kristofer who were married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in Loughmacrory Co. Tyrone on the 17th of April 2017 followed by a brilliant wedding reception for their families and friends in the beautiful setting of Corick House Hotel in Clogher Co. Tyrone. I started my day off on Easter Monday with a drive up to the lovely Tyrone village of Loughmacrory where Donna is from. It was my first wedding in this area so I went up a few weeks before to check out the church and find Donna’s home house so on the morning of the wedding there was zero chance of me being delayed by not knowing where I was going. On arrival at Donna’s home house I was warmly greeted by Donna’s parents and family and made feel right at home. Donna and her bridesmaids Aoife, Melissa and Linda were all busy in hair and makeup and the house was full of energy and fun.

Leitrim on the 7th of April 2017 with a fantastic wedding reception for their families and friends in the beautiful Sligo Park Hotel. The 7th of April was a beautiful spring day with plenty of cloud cover but no rain which really is the best you can hope for in Ireland.

With us for the day on Videography duty was Conor Conlon from CMP Productions- this was my first outing with Conor but I have been a fan and following his work for a long time- he is a dab hand with the drone too which really add the wow factor to wedding videos and you can check out Conor’s fantastic work on his website here. After we left the girls we made our way to St Aidan’s Church in Kinlough for the wedding ceremony.
