Broadhaven Bay Hotel Wedding Belmullett

14th March 2017
Doireann and Tomás are two wonderful people who recently were married in the fabulous
Ballina Cathedral followed by a reception in the Broadhaven Bay Hotel.
Having crossed paths with Doireann and Tomás on several previous occasions, covering their wedding puts the small bit of added pressure of really wanting to have a strong set of images for them, and hoping that the day would run smoothly.
All of those attending the wedding would know of the tragic circumstances which forced them to postpone their wedding from the previous September, and dealing with the emotions resulting from that would be difficult, but it was a treat to be in their company, and indeed that of their families for the way in which they got through their wedding day in such a positive and memorable and loving manner.
From the moment I arrived in Doireann's home right through to the farewell after some dancing to the superWeightless Astronauts, the day was a pretty special one.....and no doubt you couldn't help but feed off the positive attitude of bridesmaids Claire Aoife and Emer as well as the groomsmen Alan, Jason and Patrick.
The day was a typical damp one for January and we spent some time after the ceremony availing of the shelter in the church for the family and bridal portraits......and decided to take the scenic route to Belmullet via Céidhe Fields and hope that the weather would relent for a few moments allowing us to avail of the abundance of nature that's on display this neck of the woods.
Unfortunately this didn't happen in Céide, but it did stop further into our route in Belderrig and enabled us to grab some outdoor shots. Again I'm grateful to the frame of mind that everyone was in on the damp and cold day to grab the images in such a scenic spot and not complain about some of the bad weather that nature was throwing at us....a positive bunch of people who would lift the spirits of those around them!
We made a brief hydration fuel up in Healy's pub before we arrived at our final destination, the excellent Broadhaven Bay Hotel in Belmullett. Doireann and Tomás received the traditional warm welcome that every wedding couple receives and always a treat to witness same.
The night was rounded off to the tunes of the excellent Weightless Astronauts who always ensure a high octane and full dance floor performance!
Thanks Doireann and Tomás for trusting me with your wedding photos , and indeed for being the wonderful people that you were on your wedding day....a treat to be in your company as well as that of your bridal party and I'll look forward to crossing paths again in the future!
