Wedding of Aisling And Shane, Taughmaconnell Church, & Carlton Shearwater Ballinasloe, Co. Galway


I recently covered the wedding of Aisling Courtney and Shane Feeney in Taughmaconnell Church near Ballinasloe, Co. Galway.  I started in the bride’s house where the where her two sisters and her best friend helped her to get ready.  It was a very relaxed house and this made my job a lot easier.  Medussa Hair Salon and Carrie’s Beauty Salon did a great job on the hair and makeup and the bride was ready when I arrived at the house.   The Winter weather wedding feel was complete when the bride arrived up the church by candle light.  The priest was a real character and he did a great job at putting the couple at ease during the ceremony.    It was really windy but we managed to get some of the wedding photos done outside the church.  We stopped briefly near the canal in Ballinasloe on the way to the hotel for a few more.  The Carlton Shearwater in Ballinasloe, Co. Galway had a fantastic reception ready for us when we arrived.  We took all the family photos in lobby area next to a huge Christmas tree.  The reception went off without a glitch and the band got party going just as I was leaving.
