A selection of photos from Mari-Claire and Hugh’s Christmas wedding in the An Chuirt hotel, Gweedore, Co Donegal.

Mari-Claire and Hugh decided to have their Christmas wedding at Teach Pobail Chríost Rí, Gortahork with the reception afterwards in An Chuirt hotel, Gweedore, Co Donegal.

Mari-Claire and her bridesmaids got her hair and makeup in her home house just outside Gortahork. Glam by Rosie was there from early morning to do all the girls’ makeup.

Hugh, the groom, along with his groomsmen put on their tuxes at his parents house in Bunbeg. 

Fr. Sean Gallagher was the officiant that oversaw the marriage ceremony. After exchanging their rings and making their way back down the aisle where they were congratulated by their friends and family. 

Before going for some bridal photos we went to Mari-Claire’s grandparents house to get some photos with them. We also got some photos with Mari-Claire and Hugh with mount Errigal in the background just as the sun was starting to set.

There was a drinks reception with music for the guests in the reception area of the An Chuirt as they waited for the newly married couple to arrive.  

After the meal and speeches Mari-Claire and Hugh cut their wedding cake.

While the band was setting up, we had time to go outside for some nighttime photos with Errigal under a starry night. It was then up to the brilliant Craig David band to keep the party going all night.

Thanks for having me as your photographer.
