When you get to take part in an Arann Island wedding, you know its going to be a fun day, and Sorcha and Adrians’ wedding was just that. The clouds parted, the sun came out, although the temperature was pretty baltic but most importantly, the rain stayed away. Adrian and the boys enjoyed a morning of Football, scones and tea in the Galway Bay, while Sorcha and the girls over in the Salthill Hotel, went for the more traditional glasses of bubbly. With the girls’ hair and makeup perfected, courtesy of the fabulous duo of Caroline Coyne and Natalie O’Brien, and Sorchas bridesmaids helping her into her “gúna” it was time for the important part of the day.
I love the Claddagh church, there is something so special about it, and today it looked fantastic as always. The ceremony was held “as Gaeilge” and the Ignite Gospel Choir providing its beautiful soundtrack. Rings exchanges and vows said, it was out the door into the winter sun as Husband and Wife. The party moved back to the Salthill hotel, with some trad music before dinner and speeches, “as Gaeilge” of course, before Pyramid took to the stage to get everyone dancing.
Congratulations Sorcha and Adrian, it was an honour to have been part of your day.
