Michelle and Shane's wedding in the Claregalway Hotel

06th October 2016
Michelle and Shane were married on a breezy afternoon in July in Galway.
Thoroughly enjoyed Michelle and Shane's company on the few occasions we met prior to the wedding and I knew this wedding would be a good one!
Calling to Michelle's home and seeing Fiona Coyne looking after the make up and Collette Costello....two great girls who help to create a relaxed environment on wedding morning.
I'm grateful to Michelle's sister Niamh and her parents Margaret and Walter who were very welcoming on wedding morning and the whole vibe was a pretty relaxed and fun one.....indeed we had some craic discussing ear rings among many other things!!!
St Joseph's Church in Galway is where the vows were exchanged....and where Shane and his best man Fergul were waiting when I arrived. We didn't delay too long running off a few photos as Michelle was pretty punctual and arrived shortly afterwards. St Joseph's is a very welcoming church and a place where I love working....and an abundance of photo opportunities within minutes of it.
Unfortunately there was very strong winds blowing on Michelle and Shane's big day with the result that we used the shelter of the Quad in NUIG for photos. It's a place that lends itself to photography while at the same time offering shelter to those that visit it....it's really a win win situation on a blustery day!
The excellent Claregalway Hotel was our final stop.....a hotel that runs a very efficient wedding service and indeed Nora and her team are like a well oiled machine in how they operate.
The super Weightless Astronauts provided the lively music that ensured the floor was full all night....super wedding band.

Thanks Michelle and Shane for trusting me with your wedding photos...I really enjoyed your relaxed disposition and you were both the type of people that you could shoot the breeze with all day long, and I'm grateful for that!
Please God we'll cross paths in the not too distant future again!
