Luxury wedding venues in Galway - Rosleague Manor.
How about the incredibly dramatic landscapes of the West of Ireland for your wedding day? Connemara in Co.Galway is exactly where Emily and Shane chose to get married and celebrate their summer wedding. Emily's parents live in the picturesque village of Roundstone, so all in all it was a no brainer to choose this stunning setting for both the wedding ceremony and reception at one of the best wedding venues in Galway - Rosleague Manor located in Clifden on the Wild Atlantic Way. The hotel boasts views over the bay and mountains and beautiful gardens and is a perfect venue for an intimate destination wedding in Ireland.
Wedding Photography and Planning
It was very important to the bride and groom that they had a fun and relaxed wedding. They created an experience for their guests and had everyone over the weekend for hikes, seafood bbqs and wild swimming. If you were in Connemara on the weekend of their wedding, it could've been easily confused with Ibiza. The white sand and the sunshine made Gurteen Bay beach look like a resort in Spain :) When Emily and Shane started planning their wedding, they wrote a list of their favourite aspects of weddings and focused on those rather than all the formalities. One of those things was having a cheeky pint between the ceremony and reception, so they decided to take a short walk to the O'Dowd's Pub to have a drink in the sun with their guests and enjoy the view of the bay. We then drove through Connemara National Park with the bridal party and took photos in some of the most scenic locations on route to the Rosleague Manor.
When asked what was important to them in photography, Shane and Emily said they were particularly keen on candid and natural photos and less so on posed and traditional shots. With their easy going personalities it was easy to achieve and I hope the photographs reflect the relaxed atmosphere of their wedding in Galway!
