Two people from opposite sides of the world coming together for a Special Day
Unique Wedding Mulranny Park Hotel | Mayo – Ireland
A wedding between two people from opposite sides of the world. New Zealand and Ireland coming together for a great day. Donna and Richard decided after their engagement in the South island of New Zealand to take the plunge and have an Irish Wedding. Donna’s main wish was to have a wedding that incorporated the sea as it’s so beautiful rain hail or shine. Mulranny Park Hotel was selected after a long search for it’s amazing setting among the small seaside village and its great reputation.
I usually do not publish so many photos, but this wedding was an exception because it was the wedding of my dear sister-in-law and the couple would like to publish this post to share these moments with their friends and family. I wish all happiness in the world for the couple. It was really different to shooting family’s wedding, it was a very large mix of emotions with work.
Sandra was always going to be our photographer and after a photoshoot in the area with Sandra before the wedding we had no worries about getting that special picture as the photos captured the Wild Atlantic and our love and excitement before our wedding. On the day things worked out great Sandra was so flexible and she incorporated the guests into pictures especially the kids who really made the wedding. The weather was on and off and Sandra managed to take breathtaking pictures on the beach with such a short time frame.
My dress I got second hand in New Zealand. It was beautiful but needed work to suit my figure. Joanne McGowan a friend for years took on the the job of altering the dress. Joanne has the unique ability of creating a nice dress into a dream dress. She listened to I wanted and followed through. I felt beautiful on the day thanks to her. Joanne designed and made the mother of the brides dress. My mum searched high and low but couldn’t find anything in the shops. Joanne drew exquisite designs straight away and mum looked stunning on the day.
Mulranny Park Hotel was a great choice of venue due to their oustanding staff especially Asta the wedding coordinator who couldn’t be more helpful. I have never met a more genuine relaxed and devoted wedding coordinator. She did extra things that I never expected to make the day extra special. My friends Siobhan Keaney and Karolyn Phelan sang as a special gift. Lots of friends and family chipped in and supported throughout the build up and the day especially the bad days where planning went pear shaped. It was the best day of our lives bringing our two families and our friends together. Thanks to all the suppliers for making this happen.
