Mill Park Hotel Donegal Wedding Photography | Kelly +Patrick

Mill Park Hotel Donegal Wedding Photography | Kelly +Patrick

Congratulations to Kelly Donovan and Patrick Dunne who where married in St Columbas Church in Carrick Co. Donegal on Friday 20th March 2015 followed by a great reception for their family and friends in one of Donegal’s most stunning hotels – The Mill Park Hotel in Donegal town. The morning of the 20th of March 2015 was a very special day in that I was going to Carrick in Co. Donegal to shoot the wedding of Kelly and Patrick and it was also the day of the partial solar eclipse. I have a huge love of astronomy and like nothing better than a cold clear winters night looking up at the sky through my telescope, however anytime anything exciting happens in the sky the Irish weather more often than not ruins any chance I have of seeing of photographing the event. On this particular morning I looked out and saw cloud – lots and lots of cloud! But on this occasion cloud was my friend as looking at the sun without a proper filter is very dangerous and the thick cloud provided the perfect filter for me to get my photo on the side of the road on the way to the wedding- it put a smile on my face and I knew that today was going to be a good one – and I wasn’t disappointed. I arrived at Kelly’s mums house where Kelly and her bridesmaids Sarah, Emma and Lisa where getting their hair and make up done. The girls where all in a relaxed mood and even had some fun with the two flower-girls Dearbhla and Hannah teaching them the correct walking speed to go up the aisle at. After we had our detail shots and some portraits done with the girls we made the short trip to St Columbas Church in Carrick for the wedding ceremony. On arrival at the church we met up with Patrick and his groomsmen Niall, Anthony and Patrick. The boys where busy greeting the arriving guests and handing out the mass booklets. On video duty was Michael Donovan from GRV productions and it is always great to work with Mick – you can see Micks video work on his website here. The Choir for the wedding ceremony where not only a very talented bunch with their singing and music but they where also all members of Kelly’s extended family which made the whole ceremony more intimate and personal to Kelly and Patrick. After the wedding ceremony we got some family photos done and then jumped in the cars to make the trip to Donegal town for the wedding reception in the Mill Park Hotel. However we did not take the shortest route available to us but instead went on the scenic route around Muckross head. The views around Muckross head are absolutely stunning and are ideal for wedding photography and landscape photography and for mixing the two together. It was a cold day with a bit of wind but to the credit of the whole wedding party nobody mentioned the cold – well at least not to me – and we got some amazing wedding photos. On our arrival at the Mill Park Hotel for the wedding reception Jim and Mary where on hand with champagne for the bridal party and they all made their way into the waiting guests for some chat and banter before being seated for dinner. The hotel always looks stunning and the ballroom was again beautifully decorated with attention to detail everywhere. After the meal and before the band kicked off the evenings entertainment we nipped out for a few minutes to do some light-painting photography with the sparklers and the wire wool and the pond at the Mill Park Hotel garden provided us with a great reflection for the shots. I would like to take this opportunity to wish Kelly and Patrick the very best of everything that life has to offer and thank them for allowing myself and Sinead be part of their special day, below are some of the other wedding vendors and links to their websites who helped make Kelly and Patrick’s day so special to them…….
