Lisa Garvin and Martin Mulkerrin celebrated their marriage on Saturday 28th December 2019.
Their nuptial Mass was celebrated by Canon Munster in Church of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, Bundoran. This is a beautiful Church in the heart of the popular seaside town and has been renovated over the past years and has a beautiful marble altar area. It’s shaped like a cross with lots of space at the sides which is ideal for your photographer and videographer to stay discreet! Canon Munster is an absolute gentleman and makes the day run so smoothly for everyone.
Scala Strings provided the beautiful church music. They are a string quartet who play a lovely range of music from classical to modern. But the more contemporary music is played in such a way that you will think you are listening to Mozart but it’s actually Oasis! Well worth checking out for a classical touch to a wedding.
Bridesmaids Grace Garvin and Kayleight Barlow helped bride Lisa get ready. Also on hand was Lisa’s sister-in-law Johanna Sierra Ortiz who was the designer of Lisa’s stunning dress. This one of a kind unique designed dress was made in multiple countries by the talented Johanna and she was also available on the wedding day to help bride Lisa get ready.
Makeup was by Sinead Corrigan-Crowell from Beauty Boutique, Belleek and as usual all was nice a prompt and beautiful natural looks. I love it when the MUA does a great job but doesn’t need hours per person!
And doing the hair was Alan Harrison and Nikita from Cliffoney Hair and Beauty Salon who were fantastic and alwasy watching out for little details int he styles. Flowers were fantastic and were by Triona Sheerin Warnock. The floral arrangements really captured the winter mood and complemented the unique bridal dress and the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids stylishly opted to mix outifts which worked a treat with Grace in trousers and Kayleigh in a flowing dress.
Groom Martin from Galway got ready in Sligo at the Sligo Park Hotel with Bestman Connor Mulligan. And the groom’s parents Paraic and Norin travelled from Galway with a large group of family and friends to Bundoran and Sligo for the weekend. A lot of the gang met for breakfast in the morning and as their wedding videographer that’s where I decided I would start filming. The lads were nice and relaxed and having a tasty big fry to set themselves up for the day.
One lovely little touch that the couple readily agreed to was to write letters to each other and read these out on the wedding morning. This is such a powerful story element to the final full film and really helps set the mood for the story.
Photographer was their friend Richard Davies from the UK and after the ceremony we explored around Mullaghmore for some really cool portrait locations on a windswept day. And then the smoke bombs came out! These were a little tricky to light but once going they produced some lovely trails of colourful smoke and really set off the location.
Now it was back to the reception which was held in the Sligo Park Hotel which is also where the bride’s parent’s Kevin and Anne first met! The Sligo Park is on the outskirts of Sligo in a secluded country location with a spacious reception room and also a lively bar and a perfect area for a drinks reception.
The Good Times band provided the music after the meal and the lively crowd from all over Ireland, UK and America danced the night away in style!
Thanks so much for selecting me as your videographer and give me the opportunity to create a wedding film for you both. All the very best in the future.
