Graceanne and Adrians wedding in the Caisleain Oir, Co Donegal, Ireland
I met Graceanne’s at her parents house outside overlooking Magheraroarty beach. One of Donegal’s most picturesque beaches. Graceanne and her bridesmaids, Aoibhin and Aoife were in the final stages of getting the final touches done to their hair and makeup. Tara Mulligan from Serenity has doing all the makeup. Kellyann Curran was in charge of the hair styles.
Adrian in the meantime was getting into his suit over the road in the village of Gortahork. His groomsmen, brother and son were all there to help him get dressed.
Graceanne was helped into her beautiful wedding dress by her her bridesmaids We got some family photos out the front of the house with the rugged Donegal landscape in the background.

Fr Seán Ó Gallachóir was the officiant that celebrated the marriage ceremony.
Adrian and Graceanne exchanged their wedding rings on the altar as their guests looked on. They made their way down the aisle to be greeted at the door by their friends and family.
It was back to Margheraroarty piercer some wedding photos. Graceanne’s father and brother both own fishing boats, one red and the other blue and the plan was to get some photos with them. There was a low tide which meant they would have to climb down the ladder to get onboard. Luckily the Tory Island ferry was docked at the pier so their landing stage was borrowed to get all onboard,
We got some photos with the beautiful Mount Errigal in the background while the sun was shining and then it was onto Casilean Oir hotel for the wedding reception.

The staff of the hotel were waiting at the entrance with some bubbly for the newly married couple as they arrived.
There was a drinks reception and a gin bar in the reception area of the hotel for the guests while they waited for the bride and groom to arrive.
After the meal, speeches and the cutting of the cake were finished, we headed out for some sunset photos near Carrickfin Beach.
It was then back to the hotel for the first dance of their married life.
The brilliant One for the Road were in charge of the music for the night .
