Sligo Park Hotel Wedding Clara and Shane
Sligo Park Hotel Wedding Clara and Shane
Congratulations to Clara and Shane who were married in St. Patrick’s Church Maugherow Co. Sligo on the 5th March 2016 followed by a brilliant wedding reception for their families and friends in the beautiful Sligo Park Hotel. I started my day off with a lovely scenic drive to Clara’s family home in the stunning Ballinfull in County Sligo. There are amazing views right across Sligo bay from the front door and I had to stop and admire the view before making my way inside to meet Clara and her bridesmaids Fiona and Edel who were all busy getting the finishing touches to the hair and makeup. The girls were very relaxed and there was a real buzz of excitement for the day ahead. Weather wise we could not have dreamed of a better day for early March and the sun shone for us all day. Clara and Shane both live and work in Australia and the certainly managed to bring the sunshine back with them for their wedding but there was some sort of mix up along the way as they forgot to bring the heat too!! Yes it was very cold but looking at the photos now you would think it was a balmy 25 celcius in the shade!
After we got our detail shots and some photos with Clara and her family we made our way to St Patrick’s church in Maugherow which was only a mile away. On arrival we met up with Shane and his groomsmen Cian and Keith who were all busy meeting and greeting the arriving guests. As it was such a lovely day everyone waited outside chatting allowing me the opportunity to get plenty of candid photos. After the ceremony we got the family photos done at the beautiful altar and then it was time to hit the beach! We had a lovely location picked out down near Raughley Pier with access to the beach and the scenery was absolutely stunning. Everyone braved the cold air and got some amazing photos on the waters edge. From the beach we made the short drive to Lissadell House to get a few photos among the tree lined lanes and we got an extra bonus as the snow drops were in full bloom and made for some cracking wedding photos with the low lying winter sun poking through the trees. We did not hang around Lissadell too long as there was the small matter of a wedding reception to get to and everyone was in the mood to party.
The Sligo Park Hotel is a beautiful location for a wedding and the ballroom is fantastic with it’s big windows allowing lots of natural light flood in. The speeches had the guests laughing all the way through and the two boys didn’t give Shane too much of a roasting. While the band were setting up after the meal we managed to sneak outside and get a few photos with the sparklers and the steel wool before making our way back in for the first dance. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Clara and Shane for allowing me be part of their special day and I would like to wish them both the very best of everything life has to offer. The next time ye come home to visit please bring the sun with ye again but please dont forget the heat! Below are some of the other vendors that helped make Clara and Shane’s wedding so special….
