Galway Bay Hotel Wedding

07th July 2014
Louise and Richard were recently married on a beautiful sunny day in Peterswell Co Galway.
Louise's mum's name is Maureen, and ironically, I think there's a strong resemblance with Louise and another "Maureen".......Maureen O'Hara that is.....her lovely golden colored hair being one of them.
Preparations ran smoothly for Louise on the morning of the wedding, which unfortunately wasn't the same scenario for the man of the moment, Richard. The traffic in Galway City on the morning of the wedding was chaotic as a result of a car crash on Quincentennial Bridge, and given that Richard along with groomsmen Jonathon, Michael and James were travelling from Salthill and over the bridge, they experienced stress as a result of the traffic jams and made it to the church with 2 minutes to spare!
Clare based videographer Pascal Brooks was responsible for capturing footage and it was super to see Pat from Wedding Cars Ireland....always a pleasure to be working alongside the consumate professional that he is.
After the ceremony, we captured the family portraits on the church grounds in Peterswell......this allows family members to relax when we arrive back at the hotel, have a pint in the bar or check into their rooms which causes less stress for all involved.
We made the journey to the park adjacent to Galway Bay in Salthill and unfortunately by the time we arrive, clouds had darkened and some rain started to spill.....but we managed to capture some images before arriving back to one of my favourite hotels, the Galway Bay.
A very welcoming hotel.....indeed I got married there myself, and a pleasure to work alongside the extremely courteous wedding coordinators Barbara and Orla. Availing of the library (and roof over our head) we spent some additional time working through Louise's requested photos before the dinner bell was rung.
The Conquerors were music providers after the meal.....possibly the most accomplished wedding band in all of Ireland! Great to meet and chat with them before the excellent DJ Graham brought guests to a dizzy frenzy with his Disco show!
Thanks Louise and Richard for being a great couple to work with and I hope our paths cross again in the future.
