One of the wedding venues in the Cork area should not be missed. I had the pleasure of doing photography in one of the four star hotels near a lovely village called Clonakilty not far from Cork city. Inchydoneyisland hotel has a fantastic panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean for those who love and breathe the smell of the sea. I was staying the night in one of the attractive small hotels in Clonakilty, the Emmet Hotel, and had time to explore the quaint colorful village before setting off to view Inchydoneyisland and the Church in Dararra.
Photography started on a bright, calm sunny day in the lovely grey stone church, the Sacred Heart. The sky was of a brilliant blue with some white puffy clouds scattered. The day before the wedding had been dull and stormy. Looks like I brought another day of sunshine for the bride and groom!!
Gus and a few of his best men appeared, and I had the opportunity to take pictures of them walking up and strolling towards the mini woodland, before the bride, Mary, arrived. The guests eventually started to appear and it was time for the ceremony to start before we headed back to the wedding hotel. As the day was still bright and sunny Mary and Gus wanted to have their photos taken facing the ocean, and by sheer luck there was a bit of a rainbow in the background which I was delighted to capture. The rest of the photos with family and friends were also taken before settling in the library before the reception meal started.
