Edel & Johnny,McWilliam Hotel

I was originally due to photograph Edel and Johnny’s Big Day in 2021, however, with the Covid restrictions they decided to postpone the Wedding until 2022. It was a wise move indeed, as a result their wedding was free from any kind of restrictions or number limitations!
The day kicked off at Edel’s parents house where I was joined by videographer Neil Duffy, Ann Young was on makeup duties ,and Gemma Crossan was looking after hair. Before the ceremony I hooked up with Johnny and the lads in Millers Bar for a few pre wedding photos, we then made our way across the road to the church to meet up with Fr.Kevin Blade and Fr.Michael Reilly. Everything about the day ran perfectly except for the weather! After the ceremony we made a a quick detour to Lough Talt with the hope of getting a break in the clouds… It wasn’t to be!! So, with the help of some umbrellas we managed to grab a few quick shots. Luckily enough we had the lovely interior of The McWilliam Hotel as a back up, with its impressive piano and decor, where we got some bridal party photographs. After the dinner and some entertaining speeches, the band ‘Late Nite Radio’ got everyone up on the dance floor, to round off a fabulous day!Suppliers:

Downpatrick Head/The Wild Atlantic Way

One of my favourite places on the wild Atlantic way has to be Downpatrick Head in my home county of Mayo.
I have visited it many times in all sorts of weather, sometimes it been so wild it’s impossible to even attempt setting the camera up on a tripod!:-)
but always worth a visit none the less!
For a long time I have wanted to get a shot inside this cave at the foot of Downpatrick Head,
A small bit of planning was involved,entry into the cave should only be attempted when there’s a very low spring tide and sea and weather conditions are good.
These three things were in my favour on Sunday afternoon in late July where I got a small window of about 12 minutes inside the cave to get a few shots before the waves came and forced me to leg it back around the base of the headland threading carefully on the slippery ridge.
The selfie shot was my most popular shot of the year and was a big hit on Facebook and Instagram and I was delighted to be featured on the very popular official Wild Atlantic Way Instagram page and also to be included in one of the Best ’18 In 18 ‘ shots of 2018 on their website.

Aisling & John,Knockranny House Hotel

‘Aisling and John’s big day kicked off for me with Aisling and her bridesmaids at her Airbnb, where I was joined once again by ‘NEIL DUFFY’ (Videographer). ‘Gemma Crossan’ and ‘Shauna McCoy’ were on hair and makeup duties. After the bridal party preparations were finished we made our way towards Aisling’s Mum and Dad’s house for a quick stop off. I then headed off to the church to meet up with John and his groomsmen before the ceremony began. It was great to be back shooting again in Rooskey. After the ceremony, we travelled to Westport and stopped off en-route at “The National Museum of Country Life” in Turlough, for some bridal party shots. The grounds there always look great in Autumn! When we got to Westport the couple received a lovely welcome at ‘Knockranny’ from Claire and her team. Following a lovely meal there were some great speeches. A night of dancing was kicked off by the band ‘Who Knows’. It was a pleasure to have been part of Aisling and Johns special day.
