Gemma & Darren, Wedding, Sligo Park Hotel Sligo
Having ties to the Sligo Park Hotel, as a little girl Gemma said one day she’d get married here, and on 6th November that dream came true when she got married to Darren in the Sligo hotel! Surrounded by family and friends, this was a super chilled wedding, start to finish, and everybody certainly made up for lost time with close friends on the dance floor in the evening. We got all the pictures inside the hotel, bar a few of the bride & groom outside in the near darkness, which pushed me to my limits but they came out great and certainly different to anything I’ve shot before! Relaxed, candid shots with guests was the priority for Gemma & Darren, and that’s how we rolled!
As someone who was born in Sligo, and certainly since I’ve been photographing weddings, I’ve also seen the hotel change throughout the years and I have to say it was looking it’s absolute best for Gemma & Darren’s day. Surrounded by glorious autumnal trees outside, the decor inside was pretty stellar helped by Olga from the Flower Shed.
Gemma & Darren’s wedding was one of my final weddings of 2021, and the last of a run that began back in June with Aine & Gareth’s wedding. I’ve seen weddings go from 6 people in attendance to 25 to 50 to any number now. I’ve had first dance’s outside, the best man sorting the music, to finally having bands back on stage. It’s been a super intense autumn run of weddings and as always I’m super grateful to all my couples who decided to go ahead with their weddings in 2021.
Congratulations Gemma & Darren & Harry…absolutely delighted I could document and capture your wedding day for you!
