Aoife & Declan got married - with An Grainan being the ideal location for them to bring family & friends from across Ireland to enjoy a north west wedding - situated in beautiful Donegal but with Derry only a few minutes drove away...
Deirdre, Barney & the An Grainan wedding day team extended their usual exceptional hospitality & the hotel itself provided the perfect all-in-one location for everything from the morning preparation (with Sarah Cox, no not the DJ without a h, the MUA with a h) right through to the evenings entertainment as provided by The Collective & DJ Kevin McGrath via a very personal ceremony lead by Sandra - The Wedding Lady...
I was delighted to be able to play a small part in their day as I documented the goings-on with as little fuss or interference from me as possible... If you've read this far fair play - I do know you're really here just for the photos...
An Grianan Hotel was the backdrop as Michelle & Jonathan got married earlier this month… after ten years together the decision for them to make things official probably didn’t surprise too many of their family & close friends - the surprise element may have been that they gave themselves a little over four months to organise the big day! So it was an absolute credit to them, and all who lent a hand, when everything came together in a day to remember with tears, joy, love and laughter, a surprise song, and some serious dance floor moves...
My day started with me meeting Michelle, and her bridal party, at Sky Salon; I caught up with the boys at Johnny’s family home, before following on as Fairytale Wedding Cars took them across the border to An Grianan Hotel; where first Celtri and The Front Wedding Band provided the soundtrack for the day.
Here’s a look at Michelle & Jonathan’s Day
Shauna & Darren spent the 10th September 2016 surrounded by family & friends as they tied the knot in St Mary's. Creggan before heading cross border to celebrate at the An Grianan Hotel, Burt. (It's definitely the best date for a wedding - although I might be biased considering it's my own wedding anniversary too!)
