Lisa & Colm, Wedding, Coolaney to Castledale Co.Sligo
On a day that was supposed to be a little cooler than the weekend and week before, the mercury kept rising all day again! And yet again, I had a mega happy summery wedding to photograph, where the bride & groom, and all guests just had a fabulous time!
Lisa & Colm had a fab family/engagement shoot a little while ago, so I knew their wedding would be a good one. And from the start with Lisa & her family getting ready in the gorgeous Castledale in Sligo, it was a super relaxed affair, with a stunning venue! It was great to see Michelle Grey finishing up Lisa’s make-up as I had previously shot Michelle’s wedding back in 2013…doesn’t seem that long ago!! Lisa mentioned the butterfly that kept following the couple around all weekend, so it was so cool to be able to capture it, and also have it flying around just before we got a few bridal portraits!
Following the great ceremony in Coolaney…every wedding supplier that works during the ceremony loves going to Coolaney and having Fr.Pat presiding over things…we made a short trip to Strandhill to see Lisa’s grandmother, who also happened to be neighbours with my own grandparents, so it was lovely to see her also, as I can still remember herself & her late husband from whenever I was at my grandparents in Sligo!
After Strandhill it was back to Castledale where the party was already in full swing outside in the glorious sunshine & heat complete with Sinead Conway singing and prosecco flowing! Amongst enjoying themselves, getting pictures, making sure everyone was having a fab time, Lisa & Colm were also pretty much organising the whole day…and they did a great job, as I know from being at almost 500 weddings, even small ones take a lot of organising!
So between organising their own day, we got some family pictures, bridal party pictures, and of course a few relaxed shots of them both wandering the grounds of Castledale. Then we grabbed a few of the super important family pictures with Freddie!
Congrats Lisa, Colm & Freddie! Thank you so much for having me be part of your wedding in 2021!
