Tara and Paul – Weddings at the Westwood

Weddings at the Westwood

Tara and Paul

The Westwood Hotel, Galway

September 2015

Shooting a wedding in Galway City is fantastic, especially when the rain stays away. For a small city it has an amazing diversity. Tara and Pauls wedding took in most of the city, from The Church of the Resurrection on the Headford road, out to the Claddagh and then onto the Westwood on the other side of the city.

Michelle and Derek are one of those couples that are just an absolute pleasure to be around. Both with a constant smile on their faces and just a joy to be in their company. While Michelle was busy getting ready out in her family house in Galway, I popped in to see how they were getting on. Everyone looked great, helped by the very talented Caroline Coyne.

The Lady Gregory

Gort, Co. Galway

April 2015

The very first time I met Michelle, I knew this was going to be one of those weddings with so much character and special little touches. She was so excited, she had hundreds of ideas, most of them she seemed to be doing herself. Gary is her perfect foil , such a nice guy and as laid back as you could be about things. It was an absolute honour and privilege to be part of their wedding day.

This is their story . .. .

Abbey Court – Nenagh, Co. Tipperary

Weddings are fantastic fun, they are basically a huge party with all your friends and family, and you don’t even have to clean up the next day.  Most of the day I spend in the background, capturing what happens from a respectful distance. All throughout the day, I stay out of peoples way, but when the dancing starts I like to get right in the middle of the action and get some different points of view.

So David and Laura took to the floor for their first dance in the Abbey Court, surrounded by their family and friends. The with some great tunes being pumped out by their band Royal Flush, the dance floor filled with family and friends to join in with the dancing. I love to get in front of the band and get up high and wide, capturing the whole dance floor.  Its great to see all your guests having fun and joining in the celebrations. So with the whole dance floor concentrating on having fun, I made my way into the middle of the dancers and captured this shot of David and Laura having a ball on the dance floor, surrounded by their friends. Best of all they see me and give me a cheer and a thumbs up.

Its now one of my favourite photos, really colourful and filled with people having a great time, which is what a wedding is all about.

Keep your eyes out for my full blog on Laura and Davids Wedding in the Abbey Court, it was a pretty special day.
