Ballintubber Abbey Wedding & Reception in the Castlecourt Hotel Westport

10th August 2016
Laura and Mark are like so many couples that I've worked with in recent years.....working in Australia and making the journey home for their wedding vows!
I enjoyed meeting up with Laura and her bridesmaids on wedding morning with their preparations taking place in the excellent Castlecourt Hotel in Westport. Unusually for me, my first time meeting Laura was on wedding morning and I was delighted to see that she was a jovial person and having plenty of craic with her bridesmaids Gemma, Janine, Hayley and Orla! The banter was flying and I was delighted that their was a "giddiness" to their preparations as opposed to nerves....always lends itself to better photography!
It was also my first time to meet Robin Wallace who was covering video....really nice guy and enjoyed his company!!
After their preparations, I made the spin to the majestic Ballintubber Abbey......a place I love working, not least of all because theirs a serenity and calmness to it and it's staff, which in ways is unusual as it's probably one of the busiest churches in Ireland for holding wedding ceremonies...thoroughly enjoy working there! The church looked amazing thanks to Judu Lynn Roche from Balla Florists...always does an amazing job!
Mark was accompanied buy his groomsmen the two John's Enda and Shane....and also in good spirits just as the ladies were!
Also a pleasure to bump recent Mrs2Be award winner Brenda Grealis who was looking after the ceremony music and singing!
The weather was somewhat changeable on wedding day...plenty of showers followed by a cloudy respite for a few minutes and just as the ceremony was over and the guests had left the church, we decided to run off some images outside Ballintubber Abbey while we were able to.....followed by a break in Corley's Bar, a spot that's pretty busy on wedding days in Ballintubber as it's directly outside the church entrance! We had some refreshments there before making our final journey back to the Castlecourt Hotel where wedding co-ordinator Vinny looked after Laura, Mark and their guests in the top class manner that they look after each wedding!
Thanks Laura and Mark for trusting me with your wedding photos and please God we'll cross paths again in the future....until then, mind yourselves!
