Wedding Reception: Sheraton Athlone Hotel
This was entirely a westmeath video but 100% Dublin! Roisin and Raymond decided to have their wedding in Athlone after they had gone to see the Sheraton Hotel . But as the celebrant ……… Canon Liam Devine pointed out it was all Dublin today, but we all found it very interesting when he explained that in all his years and having officiated at weddings in every county in Ireland, this was his first all-Dublin wedding! And he could not hide his affinity for the dubs as you can see from the video!
The GAA theme had started when Roisin met me firs, as i was doing a local wedding fair in my club in Coolock, Parnells. It continued during the Mass when Canon Devine told us at the end of the Mass…………” And by the way bring Sam and Bring Liam McCarthy home, they’ve been too long away from us!” Well we only managed Sam but it was fitting that Roisin and Raymond would receive their DVDs within 2 weeks of Sam coming home and the circle was complete when the Dubs arrived in Parnells to complete the GAA themed circle that had started there when i met Roisin and her sister and friends months previously at their wedding fair.
Roisin told me she was looking for a videographer who didn’t do all the usual cheese, someone modern and unobtrusive. After a few minutes chatting I think Roisin knew she had the right person for the job. On top of that she knew my personality would be a match for herself and Raymond.
