Vanessa & Paul
Vanessa & Paul’s big day was blessed with glorious sunshine & high temperatures. The west of Ireland is not noted for these kind of days, but the happy couple & all the guests enjoyed every second.
I first called to Vanessa’s home in the morning. All was calm & relaxed. Caroline Coyne was on Make-Up, while Natalie O’Brien was on hairdressing duties. They are two hard working ladies but always great to meet.
Kilmaine, Co. Mayo was the location for the lovely ceremony, where vocalist, Kayla McDonagh, sang the stunning bride up the aisle to meet her groom, Paul.
The bride’s father was emotional as the change over took place, the sign of a man who is stoutly proud of his daughter & family.
Photographer (and neighbour) John McMahon was on duty with me, & as is the norm, we had a pleasant photo-shoot at the church post ceremony. We then moved to Salthill for the rest of the photographs, stopping briefly to The Claddagh, Salthill beach & park.
It was then a short move to The Galway Bay Hotel, where after the meal the Weightless Astronauts belted out the music to the many dancers.
