COLOURFUL, RAINY DAY WEDDING IN RATHMULLAN | DONEGAL
When Georgina and Craig asked me to photograph their wedding, I was thrilled! It had been a while since I last photographed at Drumhalla House and I absolutely love Rathmullan. Georgina is from Derry and Craig is from Scotland. They sounded so lovely, I knew it was going to be a great wedding.
Georgina got ready at her parent’s house in Derry along with her sisters and bridesmaids. She had the use of a class wee outhouse built in her back garden where she could relax and have her hair and make-up done. She chose thistles and wild flowers for her wedding bouquet and boutonnieres. And then came the bridesmaids’ dresses and shoes. I can’t get enough and mustard and teal ❤️
The wedding took place at St. Eugene’s Cathedral in Derry. After the ceremony they walked down the aisle together and were met by family and friends taking shelter from the rain. After a few family portraits inside the church, I made my way with Georgina and Craig to the Derry Walls. Armed with an umbrella or three, we decided it was just a tad too wet to be out in the open air so ran into the Craft Village. With the help of a couple of two gents, we made swift work of a few spots in the Craft Village by bundling ourselves back into our respective cars and hitting the road for Drumhalla House.
The wedding reception took place at Drumhalla House in Rathmullan, which they’d decorated with rustic wooden centrepieces and flowers, gin bottles with fairy lights and cork bottle tops as the guests’ name place cards.The highlight was Roald Dahl books which had been painted with watercolours and made into bunting. ?
True to Donegal form, the rain kept up but sure a bit of rain does no harm, even on your wedding day. Everyone was warm, dry and having the craic and that’s all you could ask for really!
After a few entertaining speeches, Georgina and Craig cut their cake and I left them to party hard into the night.
