@Tootingbee:  

Not first hand, unfortunately but I know someone who was married in Gweedore (near Mount Errigal). Lovely old church with the mountian in the back, but near the river, lough, and ocean bay as well. http://www.gweedore.net/?page_id=710  Is your location set? I’m in Dub, but we get to the West when we can. Lovely out there!

I’m from the other end of Ireland, but I’ve been to Donegal and it’s absolutely beautiful. I friend if mine got married in Harvey’s Point hotel and it was incredible!

@Tootingbee:  

It was shortly before we met, so I’ll need to ask her about the reception. I have seen photos of it though, so I know it had a lovely view of the bay. I’ll get back to you on that. I imagine sterling’s exchange rate is treating you well, alright!

My husband and I actually eloped to Antigua. I don’t have any family in Ireland myself, and he’s not particularly close to his (no drama, just not close), so we just took the opportunity to run away! But as I said, the West has a special place in my heart. It’s where I first visited before I ever imagined living here, much less being married to an Irishman. His parents have a holiday home in Co. Mayo, so we associate it with lovely days away from the Big Smoke.

I was married in Galway! 

I would highly recommend Moat Hill Photography. Paul and his wife did an amazing job with our photos. Replied to emails promptly, even with the time difference between Toronto and Dublin. Photos where delivered promptly online and a flash drive was mailed to us as well. I love his photos. He does the photojournalist style that seems popular right now. I didn’t even notice him most of the day. I had a really sweet moment with my sister in law and afterward my mom was like oh too bad we didn’t get any photos. Then when I looked at the pictures online. There it was! Several photos I didn’t even know we’re taken, I was thrilled. 

@tootingbee: do you know of any review sites for Ireland? I wanted to leave a review for my videographer who has been terrible, but I can’t find any websites for Ireland wedding vendors! And I think my google results are squweed because I’m searching from canada.

@Tootingbee:  Im getting married in Donegal this July. Have you got the legal side sorted yet? We had to get our birth certificates apostillised by the uk government. Pretty straight forward process and very quick it costs £30 per document though.

@Tootingbee:  The same! We’ve already got quite a bit taken care of, and all of our vendors have been lovely so far. So tell us, what will your wedding look like?
