Connemara Coast Hotel Wedding Co Galway

24th February 2015

Caroline and Mark were married on the last day of 2014 in Clonbur Co Galway.

For those that don't know it, Clonbur is a majestic place in "Joyce Country" not too far from the village of Cong beside the Galway/Mayo border.
Even though New Years Eve was a pretty bad day from a weather point of view, one couldn't help being taken aback by Caroline's home was like something out of a story book, on the side of a mountain with beautiful character and natural beauty!

It was good to bump into Caroline Coyne who was covering make up....and indeed the two of us were exceptionally well looked after by Caroline's mum Mary....we had to loosen our belts before leaving the house that morning we were fed so much!

Making the short journey to the church, it was lovely to arrive and listen to the fabulous music of Colm Naughton, Orlaith Keane and Pearse easy on the ear and brilliant musicians/singers! Fr Mannion is also a gentleman to be around in a church....very welcoming and helps all wedding suppliers out which is always a treat!

Always a treat to listen to Orlaith singing. Would love to have a pint in my hand and be sitting by a fireplace listening to this lady!

After the ceremony, we used the shelter of Clonbur Church to grab some photos before making the journey to the Connemara Coast Hotel, making a rain interrupted stop in Cornamona.

I can't help but feel that I'm due a good wedding photo shoot in Maam Valley! Anytime I've passed here while covering a wedding, the weather has been horrific and hasn't lent itself to getting the bride and groom out of their cars!

Fair play to Caroline & Mark for catching the final sunset of 2014 on Spiddal beach! Gale force winds didn't stop them from hopping out of their warm cars and taking it in!

Thanks Caroline and Mark for being great and accommodating people to be around on a wedding day! I thoroughly enjoyed your company and wish you both the very best for the future!
