Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding
Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding
Congratulations to Janet and Declan who were married in St John’s Cathedral in Sligo town on the 5th of August followed by a fantastic Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding reception for their families and friends.
The 5th of August was one of those rare Irish summer days when that great ball of burning gas in the sky fondly know as the Sun made an all too rare appearance- and to put the cherry on top it also happened to be Janet and Declan’s wedding day Whooohhooo. I started my day off with a quick stop off at Declan’s house where he was getting ready alongside his groomsmen Maurice, Damien and Shane. The boy were in great form and enjoyed the craic without a worry in the world present. I also met up with videographer for the day Peter Mullaney from Mullaney Media who was being ably assisted by Chris Dykes from CDykes Photography and Design and it was great working alongside the boys again on such a great wedding.
After we left the boys we made our way to Kinlough where Janet and her bridesmaids Ashling, Laura and Lorraine who were all busy getting hair and makeup done by Caroline Loughlin from The Beauty Rooms in Ballyshannon and Victoria Warnock from Kinlough. The girls were all really relaxed and had enjoyed a bottle of champagne in the glorious sunshine. After we got some gorgeous portraits of Janet and her bridesmaids and family we made our way to Sligo to St John’s Cathedral for the wedding ceremony. The wedding guests were all mingling and chatting and that allowed me to get some great candid photos of everyone as they eagerly awaited Janet’s arrival. The beautiful vintage wedding car – supplied by U2R1 Wedding cars – arrived bang on 1:30pm with Janet and her bridesmaids for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony itself was light up by beautiful music from Organist Alexina Warren and Violinist Niall Kerr who is also Janet’s brother.
When the ceremony had finished we got some of the family photos done inside the Cathedral beside the beautiful altar and flower displays from Ian Mc Daid Florist in Ballyshannon before making our way to Rosses point for the photos with Janet and Declan and the bridal party. The views at Rosses point make for some stunning wedding photography backdrops with Ben Bulben mountain on one side and Sligo bay on the other. With such a relaxed bridal party my job was just easy. We made a second stop off at Dead Man’s Point which is beside the yacht club in Rosses point and it is such a great location as you can get right down to the water and I even managed to get wet feet when a wave lapped in over my shoes getting the photo of Janet and Declan on the pier but it was totally worth it.
From Rosses point we made the short trip into Sligo town for the Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding reception. On arrival Janet and Declan had a great rousing reception from many of the guests who were enjoying a cooling drink at the front of the hotel. Inside we got some great shots of the stunning ballroom and all the details that Janet had put together for the wedding. After the speeches the guests were treated to a magnificent magic and comedy show from Jack Wise – this was my first time seeing Jack in action and I have to say he was totally amazing- I had a hard job keeping the camera steady as I was laughing so hard- if you have not come across Jack yet then do yourself a favour and check out his work. After Jack had finished up the band for the evening Deja Groove had set up and got the dancing under way with Janet and Declan’s first dance as man and wife. The floor stayed filled and I got some great action shots of the guests busting their moves on the floor. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Janet and Declan for allowing me be part of their Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding and I would like to wish them both the very best of everything for the future. Below are some photos from Janet and Declan’s Clayton Hotel Sligo Wedding…..enjoy…..
