Glencolmcille Wedding Aine + Aidan
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!
On arrival in Glencolmcille I started my wedding day coverage off with Aine and her bridesmaids Eilish, Linda. Clare and Aoife who were all getting their hair and makeup done in Aine’s home house by the very talented Charlene Byrne (link) and Noelle Cunningham . The house was a hive of activity with neighbours and relations dropping in to wish Aine and her family the best of luck for the day ahead. As soon as the girls were dressed and ready we got some great photos with them all before making our way to St Columba’s church for the wedding ceremony.
On arrival at the church we met with Aidan and his groomsmen Ciaran, Jason, Cathal and Victor who were all busy meeting and greeting the arriving guests. As it was a nice day weather wise the guests all congregated outside to chat which allowed me to get some great candid photos of everyone.
After the wedding ceremony- which had amazing wedding music by Eunan Mc Intyre- Aine and Aidan were welcomed outside by Stephen McElhinney from SM Entertainment’s who was playing the bagpipes and he kept the crowd entertained with may lovely tunes. After the greeting line had passed we got the family photos done inside the church before jumping in the cars and making our way to Glen Head for the bridal party photos.
The sun was popping in and out from the clouds and there was a slight haze but the beauty of the Donegal coast looked amazing and when you put a beautiful bride like Aine in front of it then the photos are absolutely stunning, we had a great laugh trying to avoid all the sheep sh*t and it was really important to pay heed to the old saying of watch your step!! After we got our photos done there was time for a stop off in the pub for a well earned drink before jumping into the cars and making our way to the Blue Haven hotel in Kilcar for the wedding reception.
As always Terence and his team extended a very warm welcome to everyone and the hotel ballroom looked amazing. We got some great photos in the ballroom with Aine and Aidan and some creative lighting and of the wedding cake by Beach View Bakes (link) before they went and enjoyed some down time with their families and friends before the meal and speeches got underway. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Aine and Aidan for having me as part of their wedding and would like to wish them the very best of everything for their future together, below are some images from Aine and Aidan’s beautiful Glencolmcille Wedding enjoy……
