I recently photographed the wedding of Sarah and Torin in St Peter and Paul’s Church in Athlone. The bride and her bridesmaids got ready in Glasson Country House Hotel in Glasson. There was great excitement when the women were getting ready which led to lovely photos.

The mass was held in St Peter and Paul’s Church, which is the main church in Athlone by the river and it was a lovely ceremony. The priest put everybody at ease which makes all the difference. We stopped off in Sean’s bar for a drink after church before heading to the Glasson Country House Hotel for the wedding reception.

The weather was fantastic all day and all the guests enjoyed a few drinks outside basking in the sunshine before the meal. The speeches were really entertaining and everybody enjoyed them. I caught up with Sarah and Torin after the wedding and asked them about their day.

What was important for you both when planning your wedding?

It was important to us both to be organised when planning the wedding considering we were planning the wedding from New Zealand.  Planning an overseas wedding you always have to allow for extra time for everything.
