Marguerite & Maria's Castle Dargan Wedding

“O, but I saw a solemn light; Said the rambling, shambling travelling man; Castle Dargan's ruin all lit' Lovely ladies dancing in it”. – W. B. Yeats.

Going forward every time I see these words it will bring me back to Marguerite & Maria's Castle Dargan Wedding.

This was my first time in the amazing Castle Dargan Hotel but my second wedding with the Gallagher family from Sligo. It seems crazy how the time has flew since I captured Marguerite sister's Mary & Dean's wedding but I couldn't wait to get meeting up with them all again.

When I arrived at the hotel the girls were getting ready in separate apartments on the grounds of the hotel so I was travelling over and back from room to room to capture the craic in the morning.

Once the girls were ready in their wedding attire from Wed2Be and Bianco Evento it was over to the main Hotel for a beautiful ceremony officiated by the amazing Karen Dempsey. This celebration was one hell of a rollercoaster of emotions for everyone in attendance myself included where Marguerite & Maria exchanged rings, had a hand tying ceremony and a beautiful Greek wedding tradition 'Stefana' where the Stefana (Greek Wedding crowns) are two crowns joined together by ribbon to symbolise unity and are blessed by the celebrant. When placed on their foreheads, the brides “crowned” Queens of their home, which they will run with love and Faith. The crowns are swapped back and forth three times by the koumbaro (Maria's brother Stavros) as they walk around the altar to mark the beginning of their marital journey.

After the ceremony and family photos were taken we had use of 2 golf buggies to drive to some of the most stunning locations that Sligo has to offer and all situated around the hotel's golf course (I will definitely be back to play it!!!) to capture a few images of the girls and Flori their beautiful little puppy who was also rigged out for the day.

Once back at the hotel Marguerite & Maria were treated to a greeting line by their guests were the confetti was flying in celebration of their unity.
