Catherine & Danny's Wedding in the Castlecourt Hotel
Castlecourt Hotel Wedding Westport
Catherine and Danny have the most wonderful family and I had a great day with them last year for their wedding in the Castlecourt Hotel Westport.
Darragh and Rian are two classy young lads, type of kids that parents would be chest out proud of! Catherine and Danny have obviously done a good job on their upbringing and they were the main reason I enjoyed the day so much!
Catherine’s wedding preparations took place in the Harbour Mill Apartments in Westport. Catherine’s bridesmaids were Maura, Cara and Nicole and were alongside Catherine ensuring all matters were under control. The atmosphere was pretty laid back and I enjoyed watching and listening to young Darragh and Rian who were absorbing all the strange goings on of a wedding day! Vinny O’Sullivan was looking after the video side of things and we were both able to make the trip to St Mary’s Church in Westport in plenty of time to catch up with Danny and his groomsmen. parking can be tricky so it was good to get a few minutes head start on the ladies to sort that out.

Danny was in good spirits and groomsmen Dot, Colm and David were very accommodating with regards to photos before the ladies arrived pretty punctually.
Fr Charlie McDonnell celebrated the mass in his usual jovial characteristic way, and I always enjoy his sharing. Music was by the super Kayla McDonagh who was accompanied by the talented Mike Cooley…they’re a fantastic combo/duo.
After the ceremony, we used the church for the Family Portraits before letting the families make the short walk back to the Castkecourt Hotel while the Bridal party and I did a small journey to Westport House and over to Harbour View road to grab some images with Croagh Patrick in the rear. Darragh and Rian came on the shoot with us. Sometimes young children become tired during this stage of the wedding day but I couldn’t get over how super the two young lads were. Indeed Darragh came with us on our second shoot over by Harbour View and really couldn’t have been any better for his mum and dad on their wedding day. I remember arriving home telling my wife how classy the two pageboys (and sons) were on wedidng day.
Our final port of call was back to Vinny and his team in the Castlecourt Hotel for a wonderful evening!
Thanks Catherine, Danny, Darragh and Rian for being super people to be with. I wish you both the very best for the future! Some images from the day below and a photo slideshow can be viewed at the bottom of the page.
