Catherine & John Paul's Wedding

16th September 2011

Congratulations to Catherine and John Paul who recently married in Glencorrib Church Mayo followed by a reception in The McWilliam Park Hotel Claremorris.
It was a brilliant day and probably one of the most relaxed weddings that I've covered....Catherine was her usual jovial self .........I was told that the wedding was cancelled when I arrived to her home in the morning!
After capturing the girls jumping on the trampoline while drinking champagne, and taking turns on the swings and slides, I had taken about five times the amount of images that i normally do at a brides home...it was brilliant....everyone in the moment and enjoying themselves!

I made my way back to Glencorrib Church via O'Malley's bar in Cross where John Paul was supposed to be (you know yourself....a short one to calm the nerves), but there was no sign of him at 12.30pm and I had to push on. He did manage to make it to O'Malley's (just after I left) and fair play to him for making it up to the church to allow is to run off a few shots before the very punctual Bride arrived.

Award winning Videographer John Murphy from Avalon Video was covering the wedding which made the day even more enjoyable. I've worked on several occasions alongside John and it's always a pleasure to be in his company....very considerate to the needs of fellow professionals on a wedding day and always in great form!

After the ceremony, guests had the welcome and pleasant surprise of an Ice Cram Van parked in the church car park where guests had complimentary Ice Cream Cones and Slush Puppies....thanks Catherine and John Paul....a great touch!

Before moving onto the McWilliam Park Hotel, we made a quick visit to a quay that was not too far from where John Paul grew up and grabbed some Bridal portraits.....thanks lads, ye were brilliant to work with.

Music was supplied by the established Brian McDermott band in the McWilliam Park Hotel and they kept the dance floor full all night....well done lads, great performance!

Thanks again Catherine and John Paul for being a treat to work with, it's a wedding that I've a lot of fond memories of!
