The sun was shining for Lisa and Finbarr on a blustery day back in May. With the weather on our side, we made the most of the sunshine at the Redcastle Hotel in Moville, Donegal and walked around the grounds of the hotel to get some shots. The view across Lough Foyle are the highlight of this venue and when the weather is as good as it was for Lisa and Finbarr, there’s few places with a better backdrop!

Congratulations Lisa & Finbarr

2017 was such a special year for weddings, with December being the highlight for me with some incredible festive weddings! 

Orla and Conaill's day was my final wedding of 2017 and what a way to round the year off.  As with most of the weddings in December, the day began with some fresh snow on the ground as I navigated my way to meet Orla at her family home - I might have to invest in some winter tyres for winter 2018! 

This was my first visit to the Nuremore Hotel in Carickmacross and I am already looking forward to retuning later this year - it's an impressive venue, set in a stunning landscape.  If it hadn't been so cold, we might have been able to wander around the stunning grounds to capture some more of the scenery, but we settled for a limited stroll as it was fairly chilly!

This was a great way to round an amazing year off.  Congratulations Orla and Conaill!
