Wedding Ceremony: St.Michaels Church, Portarlington, Co Laois
Wedding Reception: Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone
Sometimes you talk to a future bride many times before they book you. Joanne was one of these. We used to work together a few years ago, and i knew Joanne had no interest in having a camera in her face all day at her wedding. Herself and Keith just wanted the guests to be relaxed and enjoy the day carefree.
But at the citywest wedding fair we had a chance meeting, and for some reason Joanne had a change of heart and decided to “Go For It!” . I assured her she had made the right decision. And judging by the picture below no one had even noticed me half way through mass. . . . . . .
After the mass we were off to the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone and as our luck would have it the heavens opened up for most of the day. Although this hampered our plans of an outside photo shoot, it did not dampen the spirits of the guests or the most important people, Joanne and Keith.
After a beautiful meal the guests partied the night away and I believe they were still going in the early hours of the morning. Just to prove that the bridesmaids were attentive for most of the day here is a picture of them awaiting the arrival of Joanne and her father…..
