NUIG Chapel Wedding and reception in Westwood House Hotel

13th October 2016
Laura and Declan's day were recently married in the wonderful NUIG Chapel in Galway followed by a reception in the Westwood House Hotel.
Laura is from Scotland and has an accent that you'd love to listen too....softly spoken and a Lady to be around on her wedding day....as was her bridesmaid Rachael! Preparations took place in a holiday home in Newcastle....and it was truly made homely with Laura's parents Marion and Phil staying there along with their three sheepdogs! Beautiful animals and Phil's pride and joy....and the brilliant Daniela from The Art Of Blooming ensured they had lovely tartan collars (Scottish) to match the personalized bouquet that she also created ....and caused tears it was so nice! The most friendliest of hair dressers Collette Costello was responsible for having the ladies looking as good as they did....love bumping into Collette...we have nice chats!!
I had good banter with Declan and his groomsman Kevin when I arrived in NUIG.....both being strong Mayo supporters so we had the traditional Galway/Mayo talk! Fr Diarmuid Hogan was the celebrant...my first time meeting this gentleman (ironically I worked with him the following week too), welcoming and engaging and treating everyone with respect....and I really enjoyed listening to his sharing too, thanks Fr Diarmuid!
Sinead Nic Gabhainn was responsible for the lovely tones reverberating around the chapel, and indeed good a lot of recognition from Fr Diarmuid he was so impressed with it!
After the ceremony, we made the short walk to the Quad for some family and bridal portraits before making a journey to Bearna Woods where Laura loved and wanted some images taken too.
Our final stop was in the Westwood House Hotel where John and his staff ensured everyone had a great feed and were well looked after. The excellent and energetic performance of one of Galway's finest wedding bands "Raindance" ensured that that the dancefloor was a full and lively one all night!

Thanks Laura and Declan for trusting me with your wedding photography....I really enjoyed your company....and that of your families on your wedding day!
