THE ONE WITH AOIBHEANN AND CONNOR.

BISHOPS GATE HOTEL DERRY

 

Aoibheann and Connor got married in summer at the fab Bishops Gate Hotel, Derry.
They had their ceremony at Longtower Chapel, which was just a short walk away. from the venue. It was a fun, relaxed and thoroughly Derry wedding; the best kind.

GETTING READY

Aoibheann got ready at home with her mum, dad, bridesmaids and flowergirls and the atmosphere was so relaxed. Everyone had a spot of breakfast before heading upstairs to get dressed. Aoibheann’s family home is just beautiful! I loved the gorgeous grand hallway with beautiful natural light pouring in; it made for some lovely photos on the staircase. There’s so many lovely moments between Aoibheann and her bridesmaids. I love capturing those in-between moments of the day.

And that beautiful dress! It fit Aoibheann so perfectly. The detail on it was just gorgeous.

 



THE CEREMONY

The wedding itself was a church service in the stunning Longtower chapel in Derry.  Such a beautiful church.

THE RECEPTION

They chose the Bishops Gate Hotel in Derry for their reception.  Everyone gathered in the Wig & Gown bar for a mingle in the afternoon (complete with a caricaturist) before making their way upstairs for dinner. The speeches were damn hilarious! Haha. Some craic. One of the best parts of a Derry wedding I think.

The most memorable part of the day was stopping off at Aoibheann’s granny before heading to Bishops Gate. I love having the opportunity to visit family members who otherwise wouldn’t have had a chance to see the couple on their wedding day. It’s lovely to have those memories and photos after the big day.

Aoibheann and Connor’s wedding was such a laugh and everything I love about weddings. Here’s their gorgeous wedding day.
