THE ONE WITH AOIBHEANN AND CONNOR.

A VERY DERRY WEDDING AT BISHOPS GATE HOTEL

Aoibheann and Connor got married in summer at the fab Bishops Gate Hotel, which is a new hotel in 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 chapel at Longtower. Such a beautiful church.

THE RECEPTION

The reception was at Bishops Gate Hotel. 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.
