As a Westmeath wedding photographer I cover a lot of Weddings in the Sheraton Hotel in Athlone, Co. Westmeath. It is one of my favourite venues for photographs. Particularly, when the weather is too cold or wet for outside photos. I photographed my first wedding in Sheraton shortly after it opened in April 2008 and have been back there many times since. The staff are always very professional and the modern setting is great for photographs. The Bridal Suite is one of the best in the country with one of the best views of Athlone from the Balcony. I interviewed the Wedding coordinator from the Sheraton Anna Connaughton as Supplier of the week in April 2021 and asked her for any advice that she may have couples.
