Blue Haven Hotel Wedding Nicola + Raymond
Blue Haven Hotel Wedding
Congratulations to Nicola and Raymond who were married in St Conal’s Church in Glenties Co. Donegal on the 19th of September 2015. The 19th of September saw three very important events take place – the first one was Ireland beating Canada by 50 points to 7 in the pool stage of the rugby world cup, the second saw the mighty minnows of Japan beat the South Africans by 34 points to 32 but the stand out fixture of the day saw Nicola O’Donnell marry Raymond Crawford with a 1pm kick off in front of a packed house in st Conal’s Church in Glenties. I started my day off with a visit to Nicola and her bridesmaids Deirdre and Aisling who were all getting hair and makeup done in Nicola’s house in Donegal town. The girls were all in great spirits and had time to enjoy a glass of champagne while I spent some time getting photos of the all important wedding details. After we had our photos done we left Donegal town and made our way to Glenties to Nicola’s home house where she was going to get into her wedding dress before making the short trip to the church. On our arrival at St Conal’s we met with Raymond and his groomsmen Gerard and Brian and pageboy Christian. The boys were busy attaching their buttonhole flowers and meeting and greeting the arriving guests. The ceremony was being conducted by Fr Peoples who I remembered from his days in St Patrick’s church in Ballyshannon many years ago and it was nice to bump into him again. Also on duty for the video of the wedding was Tony Keown from Garrison and it was great to be working with Tony again. After the ceremony we got some family photos done before we made our way to the beautiful location of Fintra beach. The tide was out so we had a few hundred feet to walk to get to the waters edge but the shoreline at Fintra is stunning and it was well worth the trip. From Fintra we made our way to the Blue Haven Hotel wedding reception and stopped at the garden overlooking Donegal bay on the cliff tops in front of the hotel for a few shots before going inside for the main event. The hotel was decorated beautifully and everyone was really well looked after by the management and staff. The boys produced the goods with the speeches and had everyone in stitches laughing and The Pat Gallagher band had the dancefloor filled the whole evening with some amazing music. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nicola and Raymond for allowing me be part of their special day and I would like to wish them the very best for the future. Below are some of the photos from Nicola and Raymond’s Blue Haven Hotel Wedding…..enjoy……
