A selection of photos from Donna and Michael’s wedding in The Silver Tassie, Letterkenny, Co Donegal

When I arrived at the Silver tassie hotel outside Letterkeeny Town, overlooking Lough Swilly, Donna and her bridesmaids were in the final stages of getting the final touches done to their hair and makeup.

Michael in the meantime was getting into his suit in Ostan Loch Altan. He had time to have a quick Guinness in the pub opposite the chapel with his groomsmen before the guests started to arrive. Donna was helped into her beautiful wedding dress by her chief bridesmaid, Kelly. We got a few family photos in the bridal suite of the hotel and then it was then time to go to the church.

The sun was shining when Donna and her father arrived at the Christ the King Church, Gortahork in a beautiful vintage wedding car. 

Fr Sean O’Gallchoir, the priest was the officiant of the marriage ceremony. After Michael and Donna exchanged their wedding vows rings, they then made their way down the aisle. They were congratulated by all their friends and family passed by them as they stood outside the church doors.

We got all the formal family photos were taken inside on the alter of the beautifully decorated church. We took a slight detour towards Dunlewy for some photos with the Poisioned Glen in the background. There was also time to stop in at Glenveagh National Park for a few photos down beside the lake shore.

As Donna and Michael went to enter the Silver Tassie hotel some of the guests threw confetti as they walked by. There was a drinks reception and music for the guests in the foyer area of the hotel. After the guests got through the 5 course meal it was time for the wedding speeches to start. Donna’s mother, Sarah was first to speak followed by the groom, Michael and finally, the best man, John. After that, the very impressive three tier wedding cake was cut. It was time for some dancing. One of Donegal best wedding bands Red Alert got everyone to make a ring around the dance floor, surrounding Donna and Michael for their first dance.
