Wedding Sheraton Hotel Athlone Co.Westmeath

02nd April 2012

I first met Jacinta and Brian almost exactly a year to the day prior to their wedding. They came to the studio for a chat regarding their wedding in Ferbane Co.Offaly with the reception to take place in the Sheraton Hotel Athlone Co Westmeath.
I was delighted when they contacted me shortly after that to confirm me for their special day as I found them really easy to talk to and knew that we could work well together on the day of the wedding.
As is the norm for me, I travelled to Boora Co Offaly the week before the wedding to view possible locations for Bridal Portraits that Jacinta & Brian had recommended. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty awful the day I was in Boora and I was anxious to visit the hotel to see what our possibilities would be there if the weather was similar on wedding day.
Nigel (Jacinta & Brian's wedding co-oridinator) was present and gave me a tour of the hotel and all the possible locations for taking images. I was very grateful for his time (he looked quite busy when I called) and very impressed with his attention to detail regarding the wedding.

The wedding day turned out to be a beautiful day with bursts of sunshine and very little wind. Jacinta's preparations took place in her brother's home not far from the church and it was a pleasure to be there that morning....a very welcoming jovial home....everyone in good spirits looking to get the most out of the day. Jacinta was a lady to deal with, very accommodating with photos and really enjoying her day as was Brian when I caught up with him at the church. From a photography point of view, I'm able to relax and work in a more productive manner when you have a couple that are just living in the moment of the day, enjoying themselves and trusting those that they've employed....and that's what made this wedding a treat to be part of.

Thanks so much to Bridemaids Anne Marie, Gillian (all the way from down under) and Etna as well as the groomsmen Ian Pascal and Tom. Rory and Isabelle were troopers in their big rolls also!

Jacinta and Brian, I hope we cross paths sometime in the near future, I have very good memories of your wedding day, it was definitely one of the most relaxed and enjoyful ones that I've done, thank you!

The look of a man that's very happy with himself...congratulations again lads and thanks for letting me play a part in your wedding!
