Wedding in The Clayton Hotel Galway

19th February 2015

I love Cornamona Weddings!
Genuine people who are always up for a bit of craic on weddings of the reasons why I married a Cornamona woman!
The morning of December 30th started out beautifully, and unfortunately the weather was taking a turn for the worse as the day went on. We saw the best of Cornamona when I called to Máires home in the morning, beautiful sunshine with hardly any wind and I was hoping that conditions would remain like that and the bad weather forecast would stay away!

Having enjoyed the hospitality in Máires's home (thank you Áine & Padriac), I made the short journey to the church and caught up with Kevin and his groomsmen Tomás, Mike and Dominic who were in pretty good spirits and working with the legendary John Murphy of Avalon Video when I arrived.

Thank you very much to Fr Mannion for being the gentleman that he is, really relaxed person to be around and I was a happy man when I realized that he would also be looking after the wedding that I was doing the following day in Clonbur!

(one of my favourite shots from 2014.....this is Máire's mum Aine clenching her husbands hand just as the wedding vows are starting on the altar).

After the ceremony, the wind had picked up considerably so we used the shelter of the church for the familt portraits along with some of Máire and Kevin......but before making our journey into Galway, we used the lake in Cornamona to grab a a handfull of shots.

We decided to avail of Galway Crystal for some photos ( a great arrangement they have with the Clayton Hotel) had started raining cats and dogs by the time we arrived in Galway.

Our final stop was the brilliant Clayton Hotel....a place I like working and indeed it was great to see them awarded "Best Wedding Hotel in Connaught" this week and the Wedding's Online awards. This is truly a hotel that bends over backwards for it's couples and it's always a pleasure working alongside Karena, Valerie and Cathal!

Thanks Máire and Kevin for a great day! I appreciate your kind words since the wedding and I look forward to crossing paths again in the near future!
