Wedding at Mount Falcon, Ballina, Mayo

Photographer: David McClelland
Couple: Helen and Damien
Reception: Mount Falcon Country House Hotel, Ballina
Wedding ceremony: Knockmore

Helen and Damien (Damon Hill lookalike!) had a gorgeous wedding last year on a beautifully crisp day in November. It was my second time back at the Mount Falcon, where both Helen and Damien were getting ready. The place is the last word. I love all their little details dotted here and there that make you stop and say “that’s a nice little touch”. Then of course there’s the smell – of toasty log fires that just clings to you. Love it.

Helen looked the perfect picture. Her dress was stunning and I loved the way the light would shine through the edges adding a soft golden glow. A photographers dream. Damien looked smart too. I love a nice sharp suit and Damien wears it well.

After the ceremony Helen, Damien and I went to a little scenic spot between the church and reception for some shots of just the two of them. Damien drove (like a maniac, but then he has got a lookalike reputation to live up to!) himself and Helen which I thought was really lovely. As we got out of our cars the light just changed in some way – it was quite incredible.

The day just flew by and Helen and Damien made me feel so welcome. Thanks so much for having me there to shoot your day and thanks again for your patience on waiting for this blog post – hopefully it was worth the wait!
