Wedding Claregalway Hotel Co Galway

28th August 2012

I was delighted to be working at Caitríona and Liam Rónán's wedding recently in Corner Chapel Church followed by a lively reception in The Claregalway Hotel Co Galway.



Caitríona initially called to me 12 months ago along with her sister to view my work and I was delighted when she booked me for her big day. Another visit took place earlier this year when Liam Rónán called with Caitríona and we were able to elaborate on their wedding day and what our plan of attack would be!



They were a fun, chatty and witty couple and I knew their wedding day would be a pretty cool occasion!


Caitríona was a stunning bride and her home was a cool place that morning. Indeed her Dad John was kidding with me when I arrived at the house, telling me that I had the wrong place! I was intrigued talking to Caitríona's mum about her own wedding day and their travels after that....pretty amazing stuff. Jackie and Edel were the bridesmaids, and the fact that Edel is also a Professional Boudoir Photographer meant there was no shortage of conversation!



After catching Caitríona's preparations, I arrived at the church just as Liam Rónán and his groomsmen Dave and Eamon were arriving.


The lads were buzzing when they arrived, and it's moments like these that I love.... you witness the awareness of the groom and his excitement at marrying the lady of his dreams.....and I've a front row seat for all of it....Good Man Liam Rónán!


Corner Chapel Church looked fantastic, and in particular, I loved all the hand made signs that Caitríona's sister Siobhán and her dad John made especially for the occasion.


John seems pretty proud of his beautiful daughter.



Liam Rónán...made for media!











The lads in the middle of their wedding vows....and soo relaxed!




















Despite living in Headford, and traveling in and out of Galway thousands of times over the past 12 years, I had never taken the turn down to Luimneagh Pier. Caitríona had mentioned it as a possible location for shoots, and I was delighted with her choice!














After our brief stop in Luimneagh, we let the Bridal Part off to the hotel and ventured into the old ruins of the Claregalway Monastery and grabbed some shots of the couple alone.








Straight off to the Claregalway Hotel where Nora and her team showed why they are an extremely popular venue for weddings!









I enjoy capturing the speeches at weddings...in many respects, I find them the soul of a wedding!





Even Caitríona won't be outdone by Liam Rónán with the microphone.

Thanks so much Caitríona and Liam Rónán for letting me be part of your special day. It's a pleasure to witness a wedding that exudes joy and happiness and I truly enjoyed the very special day that your wedding was.
PS....Thank you so much for the wedding cake a couple of days later!
