Moyvalley Hotel Balyna House Wedding

This is where Nicola and Luke a lovely couple from Dublin with 2 young kids, chose to have their wedding and I was there from start to finish. Nicola and the girls got ready that morning in one of the onsite cottages that the hotel provide to the bridal party.

Luke, well he got ready the other side of Dublin so I wasn’t able to go to him sadly… However he arrived promptly on time in a stretch limo with all the lads ensuring a timely start to the ceremony. This was an Irish winter wedding so time and light was not on our side especially in so far that it was a very overcast day. In the end though everything was fine as the ceremony started on time and a decision to have no receiving line ensured that we could launch straight into photos for the bride and groom and the family photos before it became too dark. So Nicola braved the cold for about 20 minutes for her photos – thank you Nicola…! Some quick family photos and we were done with the formal wedding photos and ready to party..!

Balyna House really offers a comfortable and intimate setting for guests to spread out over its various rooms and entrance hall whilst soaking the sounds of popular music latino style..
Over to the main hotel for dinner, speeches and dancing to end a perfect day.
