Wedding Date: 30th  Dec 2016 | Wedding Venue: Claregalway Hotel | Location images: the Claddagh & Quay street Galway

In the month of December, Sarah & Alan had their wedding day at the Claregalway hotel in Galway with location photos in Quay street & the Claddagh. It was bitterly cold but that was soon forgotten as their is a certain buzz having your wedding photos taken in Quay street as the masses of people look on and offer their support. There is something special about walking up Quay street with the bridal party, shop owners came out to give champague to the bride & groom. I got to know Sarah a few months before the wedding, Sarah is also a photographer and she explained that the photos were extremely important to her. I'd be lying if I said that didn't add a little extra pressure but like all weddings, once you arrive at the brides house and start shooting, the nerves soon disappear. With wedding photography you only get once chance to get it right so every effort was made on my behalf to plan the timeline for the day so it ran as smoothly as possible. The following snippet of images are a mixture of natural light photos as well as off camera strobe lighting.

Staying warm on a windy day with the "Game of Thrones" themed bridal party overcoats - the girls would have been frozen without these, especially on the Claddagh,

not only did they keep the bridal party warm, they made the girls look somewhat like princesses ;)

Hi, I'm Gerard, an experienced wedding photographer & photography teacher. I photograph weddings throughout Ireland & I'm based in Co. Galway in the west of Ireland.

I'd consider myself to be a people person, I know how to bring out the best in my couples & I take what I do very seriously, but you would never think so when working with me.

I've been photographing weddings for 11 years; my style is very much documentary in nature & I’ve found over the years the best way to capture beautiful moments is to let them occur naturally. Many love stories have unfolded in front of my cameras and it truly is an honour when a couple places their trust in me to document their day.

While some of my couples live only a few miles away, others plan their wedding from abroad & I place great emphasis on taking care of my couples both pre & post wedding. If you like the idea of a photographer who will guide you through each step from the pre-wedding meeting, the day itself & right through to delivering your printed story in an Italian handmade album, I'd love to hear from you...
