Leona & Ross, Wedding, Bonniconlon, Co.Mayo to Diamond Coast Hotel, Enniscrone, Co.Sligo
Another very 2017 autumnal day with on/off drizzle all day but thankfully again when we needed to get outside we were able to find shelter & get pictures outside! Thanks to Leona & Ross for trusting me with the location for their pictures!
Starting at Leona’s home near the church in the morning, I simply got down to documenting the last of the preparations, then even as dark as it was, it was dry as we got some bridal portraits outside. And as I got to the church I quickly grabbed a few shots of Ross & the guys just before the drizzle moved in.
What a beautiful ceremony, which included Leona singing after communion and rivalling Sinead Conway, which surprised everybody in the church, except myself who had a little insider knowledge. Thankfully the drizzle had abated & everybody that greeted the bride & groom gathered outside the church, and I love this time as I can get some really good candid shots without most people knowing I’m even capturing them!
Almost as soon as the last guest greeted the bride & groom, Ross’ granny, the drizzle started up & we moved inside the church to get a few quick family portraits before myself & the bridal party made the decision to try getting some pictures at Warrens’ Walk near Enniscrone which would allow us to shoot through the drizzle as it’s very sheltered there…but just as important is the fact it’s really beautiful there especially at this time of year with the whole place covered in leaves as the never ending wind blowing them everywhere!
On to the nearby Diamond Coast next, and I’ve shot a lot of wedding there, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it looking so good! Well done Leona & Ross & of course Feehilys of Sligo!
Congratulations Leona & Ross…thanks again for trusting me with documenting your wedding!
Side note: This post will be the last that I write in Strandhill! The next few wedding posts of October 2017 will be done hopefully in our new house and hopefully not surrounded by moving boxes!!!
