Mary and John were married on Friday, 27 July 2018 during a ceremony at St. Mary’s Church, Clonmany, before hosting their reception at Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel & Spa.
Mary and John met in a bar in Birmingham City Centre. They started talking and the next day, John asked Mary on a date. The rest, as they say, is history.
On the morning of the wedding, I set to work by photographing those all important detail shots, as the bridal party prepared for the day ahead. Once hair and make-up were finished, Mary donned her Suzanne Neville fitted, off-the-shoulder dress, while her bridesmaids wore floor length gowns in a gorgeous shade of purple. Beautiful bouquets of delicate cream roses effortlessly finished off their look.
A prompt bride for sure, we arrived at the church on time, meaning we could take some photos ahead of the ceremony. Mary and John were keen to spend as much time as possible with their guests, so after their nuptials, more group photos were taken at the grounds of the church, before we ventured to the reception.
The gardens at Ballyliffin Lodge looked glorious so we spent a short while capturing photos of the wedding party, before just focusing on the happy couple.
Next, we made our way indoors to the reception room, which was beautifully decorated. As always, the service at Ballyliffin Lodge was exceptional, with guests enjoying a delicious meal after the speeches were given.
The newlyweds set off to Miami and the Bahamas for an epic honeymoon!
