Wedding of Nadia and Conor St Mary’s Church Athlone, Hodson Bay Hotel |Westmeath Photographer


I recently covered the wedding of Nadia  and Conor  in St. Mary’s church Athlone and the Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone, Co. Westmeath.  I arrived at Conor’s house and everybody was in great form.  This was my third Farrell Family wedding and Dad Tom , a local GAA legend  and his family were well used to me at this stage and we had a great laugh.  We had great fun with the Conor and the lads in the garden.   I then went to the bride’s house where the bridesmaids looked great but they were outshone by the naturally beautiful bride and I got some fantastic shots of Nadia.  We then headed to the ceremony in St.Mary’s Church in Athlone.   Fr.Declan Shannon, who is one of my favourite priests, did a great job and everything went smoothly.   It was lashing rain after the ceremony so we went upstairs in the church and got some stunning photographs by the big windows.  The rain turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the trees had glistening rain droplets on them and we got beautiful pictures of the couple with lovely Winter light behind them. We headed off then to the reception at the fantastic Hodson Bay Hotel where there was a lovely Christmas feeling about.  We got some fun shots with Santa hats by the lake.  There was great craic at the speeches and by the time I was leaving the reception was in full flow and everyone was in great spirits.
