Elizabeth & Aidan's Wedding St Jospeh's Church Galway and Claregalway Hotel

13th September 2012

This wedding was one that I was looking forward to for quite some time.....I met Elizabeth and Aidan last Christmas when they were making their wedding arrangements, and they were very enthusiastic about their wedding photos.
I was very happy with how this wedding turned out, great day with the weather, super couple who had great awareness, and it was one of those weddings where two clients morphed into two friends!
I met Elizabeth and Aidan on a few occasions running up to the wedding, and I had a very good understanding of what they wanted on their special day. Each time we met, 10 minutes meetings turned into hour long chats whereby we tried to solve the problems of the world....and then some!



When I arrived at Liz's home the morning of the wedding, it was great to see Caroline Coyne doing the make up.....Caroline is the best make up artist that I've come across, there's a lot less "photoshopping" to do when Caroline is in control of things.


The stunning Elizabeth. When I arrived at her home, Caroline Coyne met me and mentioned that it was one of the most "chilled out" homes that she had worked at....and she was so right!


Us men don't tend to get too excited about wedding dresses, but I really loved the detail in Liz's dress.....and her "Blue Suede Wedding Shoes" were the most retro wedding shoes that I'd come across!

Meanwhile at the church, Aidan presses the flesh with guests and shows the same tranquil peace of mind that Liz had.



Loved the colour of Grace, Lorraine and Martha's dresses



Aidan takes his last few breaths before it all kicks off!



St Joseph's church in Galway City is a great place for wedding photographers.




After the ceremony, we headed up to the grounds of NUIG to grab some photos, and Elizabeth had a nice treat for Aidan when she arranged for the other member of their family "Alfie" to be present.




After taking some images in NUIG, we let the bridal party head back to the hotel before Elizabeth and Aidan gave me a couple of minutes to get some additional shots over at the canal beside the Cathedral.












We headed back to the excellent Claregalway Hotel shortly after. Aidan manages to pull on a few heart strings during his speech!

The blue suede shoes!



This images is crying out for a caption!



Elizabeth and Aidan learned a dance for their wedding song and they did a fantastic job. I must commend their wedding band "Tightrope" who played the requested song "Be My baby" by the Bay City Rollers and made a cracking job of it.





Thanks so much Elizabeth and Aidan for a cracking day. I thoroughly enjoyed your wedding and I look forward to us crossing paths in a couple of weeks again!
