Linda & Mark's Wedding

01st September 2011
Congratulations to Linda & Mark who recently married in the Galway Cathedral followed by a reception in the Clayton Hotel.
It was a beautiful day that had a few surprises instore for us and it was the first time that I got the opportunity to work alongside the friendly/jovial and talented Mike Flannery of Seabury Studio. Well done to Linda and Mark....a lovely couple who were very easy to work with and I'm looking forward to another shoot in the very near future.......we're gonna "THRASH THE DRESS"!!

I love this part of a ceremony...bride about to make her entrance and a variety of emotions on display. Some groom's chat nervously to their groomsmen....others have lumps in their throats and are unable to talk....and some are just simply concentrating on what they are supposed to do when the bride arrives at the top of the aisle....various responses that I love observing and capturing.



The spectacular Galway Cathedral. I was surprised at how dark it is and you have to rely on high ISO's and slow shutter speeds when working there.



One of my favorite pictures from this year. Just at the start of the Marriage vows, the priest comes down to the bride and groom for a quick "pep talk" when all of a sudden his mobile phone starts to ring.......great moment and he dealt with it brilliantly....even checking to see who it was and wondered out loud what they were calling him for.
One of the nicest and laid back priests that I have come across who went out of his way to make you feel welcome and ensured that the mood for his ceremony was jovial and fun....exactly what weddings should be like if you ask me.
