An Chuirt Hotel Gweedore Weddings
Congratulations to Jennifer and Cian who were married in a beautiful ceremony in Dunlewey Church on the 6th of April before hosting a fantastic An Chuirt Hotel Gweedore Weddings reception for their families and friends.
I started my day off with a scenic trip from home-base in Kinlough to the An Chuirt Hotel in Gweedore where Jennifer and her bridesmaids Mary and Catherine were getting ready. I allowed an extra 30 mins in my travel plans for the roadworks at Mountcharles and around Gweebarra (don’t get me started on the amount of time Iv’e sat at traffic lights this last 12 months!) To my surprise I was met with nothing but green lights so on arrival I was well early so instead of putting the seat back and having a snooze I made my way out to get some photos of Dunlewey church where the ceremony was taking place and boy was I glad I did- it looked amazing in the hazy morning light- just picture perfect.
I made my way back to An Chuirt and met up with Jennifer and the girls who were all in great from and enjoyed a few glasses of bubbly while getting their hair and makeup done by G&G from Letterkenny. Once we had Jennifer dressed and my photos taken I made the quick trip to Dunlewey Church where I met up with Cian and his groomsmen Michael and Patrick who were all busy meeting and greeting the arriving guests.
The weather on the day could not have been any better with beautiful blue skies and some heat from the sun- just perfect. After the ceremony we made our way to the viewpoint overlooking Dunlewey lake and the Poisoned Glen for some photos which is just an amazing location.
Back at the hotel the guests were enjoying the hospitality on offer and they were entertained for the night by the fabulous band Hotfuss from Galway. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jennifer and Cian for having me as part of their An Chuirt Hotel Gweedore Weddings and I would like to wish them the very best for the future. Below are some of the photos from their special day..enjoy…..
