A slideshow of photos from Orla and Donough’s wedding day in the Hodson Bay hotel, Athloe, Co Roscommon.

Donough and Orla decided to have their wedding in Church of the Immaculate Conception, Ferbane, Co Offaly. Just down the road from Orla’s home house. The Hodson bay hotel, Athlone, Co Roscommon was the chosen wedding venue for their reception.

Orla and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done in her parents house in Ferbane that morning. Make-up artist, Natasha Ray and hair stylist, Lou Merryweather were up early that morning to do the girls’ makeup and hair styles.

Donough, the groom, along with his groomsmen, got into their black tuxedos in the Hodson Bay hotel.

Fr Tom Cox was the officiant that oversaw the marriage ceremony. After exchanging their rings and signing the register, they made their way back down the aisle where they were congratulated by their friends and family. 

Clonmacnoise Monastic site was the location for the bridal photographs. 

There was a drinks reception for the guests in the reception of the wedding venue as they waited for the newly married couple to arrive. The newly married couple arrived at the wedding venue in a beautiful, green, vintage Mercedes car.
