Orla & Fred’s wedding took place on a sunny day in Galway. A very rare sunny day in 2015!
From the second I arrived at Orla’s house I knew it was going to be a great day, because the house was full to the brim with all her buddies getting their hair and make up done, in 3 separate rooms!

Orla’s hair was styled by my buddy Natalie O’Brien, one of the best wedding hairstylist’s in the west. And her gorgeous make up was expertly applied by Deborah Leonard. Orla’s dress was by The Suite – Bridalwear, Dublin.

I also visited the boys in Fred’s house, which was a little quieter! Fred did his own hair!

Claddagh Church was looking amazing, thanks to Louise from Seamus Florist Sundries. And the brilliant Ailbhe Hession created a lovely atmosphere with her singing and music.

After a very quick visit to Salthill beach, and park… because it was very windy, we headed for the Salthill Hotel. As always the service, and presentation at this venue was amazing.

Orla had some very original ideas in place. Two that stood out for me were the table numbers and seating arrangement table. The table numbers were photographs of each person that would be at that table, stuck to the number. And the Seating arrangements, was a gorgeous display of old wine bottles, and candles. The labels elegantly replaced with new ones, that displayed the names. Very original. And the fabulous cake was created by her Dad & sisters.

The reception area was buzzing with brilliant Manilla Strings. Getting everyone ready to rock for the evening ahead. And Frank & Sean from Duo Vocis made sure the were still rocking, and waving their napkins, during the meal.

After Dinner The Hitmen Trio took to the stage, and filled the dance floor for a great night.

Thank you to Orla & Fred for a truly fantastic day.
