Mary Catherine is simply a lovely person to be around…..a chatterbox who’s always nattering, but a lovely caring person who embraces any opportunity to chat and relax with people, and indeed it was lovely to be around and capture her infectious good will with her family and friends on her wedding day.

Mary Catherine was a bridesmaid at a previous wedding I shot (Ann Marie and Paul) a couple of years ago and I was chuffed when we she touched base with me a couple of months after that to book us (myself and John Murphy of Avalon Video for her big day.

The excellent Brennan Sisters provided the beautiful music for the ceremony….they sound fantastic with harmonies that are second to none, and indeed they’re also busy wedding suppliers whom I’ve had the pleasure of crossing paths with regularly this summer.

Mweenish is the name of the spot where Mary Catherine’s preparations took place and it’s also the spot where we ventured after the ceremony in Carna to take some bridal portraits. It was a very windy day and indeed we had to sit tight when we arrived there while the showers passed over us and I’m grateful to bridesmaids Áine, Bríd, Anne Marie, & Maria as well as groomsmen Keith and Daniel’s patience regarding same. Mweenish indeed has a beautiful rugged Connemara landscpae and I wish we could have spent a while longer there, but Tommy and Mary Catherine were exceptionally accommodating with regards to their time and efforts.

Wedding Reception the Castlecourt Hotel Westport

The journey to the Castlecourt in Westport was next….and the Castlecourt is a spot I love working in. The wedding Co-Ordinator Vinny is a true team player and indeed very accommodating to wedding suppliers and it’s easy to see why they’re one of the busiest wedding hotels in the West of Ireland.
Mary Catherine and Tommy, thank you so much for trusting me with your wedding photography….as always I thoroughly enjoyed your company and please God we’ll cross paths in the near future again. Until then, mind yourselves!

Some images from the day are below and a photo slideshow is available to view at the bottom of the page. More wedding blogs from the Castlecourt Hotel by clicking this link
