Wedding of Selina and Tomás, Inishbofin Church, Inishbofin House Hotel |Galway Photographer

I recently covered the wedding of Selina McGreal and Tomás MacGiolla in Inishbofin Church and Inishbofin House Hotel.  Inishbofin is a beautiful island near Cliften in Connemara in Co. Galway.  The couple are originally from Mayo and returned home from Liverpool to get married.  Inisbofin is an epic place to get married it feels like a foreign wedding yet you couldn’t find a more Irish place to be married.  Guests have to make a huge effort to get there but when they do it so worth it.  I started with the groom in the Dolphin Hotel where we got  great pictures.  I went to Inishbofin House Hotel where the bride was getting ready.  She was very relaxed, looked amazing and we got lovely photos of her with her bridesmaids.  The ceremony was in the Inishbofin Church the priest did a great job.  We headed for the East Beach afterwards where we got stunning pictures among the spectacular scenery with the Mayo and Galway hills in the background.  The sun was beaming down and we got beautiful and fun pictures with the wedding party on the beach.  The reception was in the wonderful Inishbofin House Hotel.   As everybody was staying on the island come 2 a.m the musicians, hotel staff and some of the locals all joined in the celebrations in the hotel hours till dawn.

    Hi Liam

    I’m a photographer in the UK and happened to spot a post last year where you did a wedding on Inishbofin. Showed my wife who being from the West wanted to go straight away. A week later we were at Inishbofin House Hotel and had great time on our first trip away since my operations. Always wanted to say thanks to the man who posted the link.

    So there you are – never know where fate is going to lead.

    Thanks again
