Coming onto the end of July, right in the middle of wedding video season for me! I made the reasonably long journey for me anyway from Westport up to Williamstown in County Galway to shoot the athlone wedding film for Sheila and Allan on their big day. After making a quick stopover at the grooms place for ten minutes it was over to the brides place to shoot morning prep where I met up with the photographer Alan Hunt. I had met him once or twice before but it would be rare enugh that we would meet so it was nice to run into him again and it was a pleasure to work with him, his relaxed style and genial nature makes a big difference to a long working day!
The ceremony took place at St Theresa Church in Williamstown, a lovely church to film in and then it was straight onto the photoshoot. It was Alan's neck of the woods so we followed his lead and he took us to a few lovely locations where we got some cracking photo opportunities on a clear and warm day.
The reception was at the Raddison Blu Hotel in Athlone. Again, I have shot one or two weddings there in my time but not many, it is rare that I would travel that far from my home base in Westport, but it is a great hotel to film in with lots of lovely light, spacious reception areas, great grub and lovely riverside views.
All the best to Sheila and Allan on their big day and hope that they enjoy their athlone wedding film by All West Videos. For more samples please check out my video page and for prices and packages you can find them here. Feel free to contact me here.
Till next time, all the best.
