Blue Haven Hotel Spring Wedding Martina + Dermot
Blue Haven Hotel Spring Wedding
Congratulations to Martina and Dermot who were married in Glenties on the 29th of April 2017 in St Conal’s Church followed by a beautiful Blue Haven Hotel Spring Wedding reception for their families and friends. The 29th of April saw me make the scenic drive to Glenties in Co. Donegal for the wedding of Martina and Dermot. I arrived at Martina’s home house just behind the football field in Glenties- a place I played in many times in my youth which was a long time ago now! On arrival at the house Martina and her bridesmaids Karen, Patricia, Rosie and Ann Marie were all busy getting their hair and makeup done. I started off with the detail shots and popped in and out to get some candid shots of the girls getting ready.
After I had finished up with Martina it was only a short spin to the other side of Glenties town to St Conal’s Church for the wedding ceremony. On arrival at the Church I met with Dermot and his groomsmen Daniel, Henry, Colin and Peter who were all busy handing out the mass booklets and meeting and greeting the arriving guests. We managed to get a few shots with the boys and also some candid shots of the guests before the wedding cars arrived with Martina and the bridesmaids. After the ceremony we got the family photos done inside the church and had plenty of time to spare for Martina and Dermot to mingle and chat with their guests. Our first stop for our photos was back to Martinas home house which has a beautiful view of Glenties and it’s surrounding landscape and also a fantastic lane with grass growing up the middle which always makes for great wedding photos. The wind was really howling and as you can see from some of the photos it made the wedding dress and Martina’s hair dance a bit – I on the other hand being as bald as a coot didn’t have any issues with the wind at all!
From Glenties we made our way to Fintra beach where the bridal party were waiting and we walked down across the beach for some beautiful photos at the water’s edge. The wind had completely died away at this stage and we had a great view across the beach and out into Donegal bay. From Fintra beach it is only a few minutes drive to get to the Blue Haven Hotel Spring Wedding reception. On arrival we were met by Terence and his team who had a well deserved glass of champagne for Martina and Dermot. The Blue Haven Hotel is a fantastic location for wedding receptions and I always love going there- the views across Donegal Bay to my home in Ballyshannon always change with the ever changing weather and there is never an excuse of getting caught out in the rain at the Blue Haven as you can see the showers coming from miles away. The band for the evening’s entertainment was Deralied and they really put on a fantastic performance and had the floor filled from the start. The last few photos we took where after dark when we were able to get some artistic nighttime photos done before packing up and heading for home as the party got into full swing.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Martina and Dermot for having me be part of their Blue Haven Hotel Spring Wedding and would like to wish them the very best of everything for their future together.
