Welcome to the Covid wedding of Laoishe & Padraig, having initially planned for a hotel wedding. They also had a sizeable guest list. It was to be a traditional wedding day with all the trimmings. They had booked our services as Galway based wedding photographers to capture their wedding memories. We are looking forward to the occasion. Understandably, when Covid 19 reared its head and interrupted their plans they are upset. All their arrangements and planning it seems to be in vain. Nevertheless, Laoishe & Padraig did not let it deter them. They are determined to make their vows to each other. The pair both choose to go ahead and say their I Dos. As a result, they plan a more intimate wedding at the Three Tower Eco House.
Following Covid guidelines and restrictions on gatherings, the couple pared back their celebration. They changed their venue and settled on what was ultimately the perfect location, in, Three Towers Eco House. It is situated just on their doorstep in Co. Galway. They want somewhere local with a room that doesn't feel empty with 50 guests. Moreover, it needed to reflect their vision for their intimate wedding.
Relaxed & Casual
As photographers, we are delighted with the new venue. Having shot numerous weddings in Three Towers Eco House. With a good knowledge of the surroundings we are confident there are lots of photo opportunities. Laoishe & Padraig choose to keep the day relaxed and casual and intimate. Placing their emphasis on the important elements. Family and friends. By following covid guidelines, the maximum numbers attending weddings are capped at 50 guests. They have their very closest present, to share in, and celebrate their special, intimate wedding.
The day begins with bridal prep. We meet with a very relaxed Laoishe, accompanied by their 2-year-old daughter Fiadh, who is very excited about her new dress. However, in contrast, Padraig and the groomsmen are in the room next door frantically ironing shirts and figuring out complicated knots for ties!. Nevertheless, they do scrub up well.
Intimate and Relaxed
In the garden at the Eco House is where the wedding is taking place. The ceremony is as expected, intimate and relaxed, Laoishe and Padraig sit in the centre of the circle surrounded by their families and friends. They exchange their vows and rings while sitting with their daughter Fiadh. It is exactly as they wished for. Ultimately the most important thing is, they are getting married and they are sharing it with close family and friends. There wasn't a dry eye.
With the family photos over we don't have far to go for some intimate couple shots. Laoishe & Padraig get a few intimate moments alone together. Enjoying their first moments, of married life in the surrounding splendour of the Slieve Aughty foothills.
A wedding photographer is spoiled for choice at Three Tower Eco House and Slieve Aughty Centre. Following some shots in the surrounding area with the happy couple, and equally as important we take a stroll with Fiadh to say hello! to all the horses in their stalls. Then onto the cake and some more photos, and it feels all too soon we are saying goodbye.
Despite the pandemic and restrictions, Laoishe and Padraig certainly created their intimate Covid wedding, their way, with infectious happiness.
