Galway Girl: June + Rob's Traditional Wedding At Loughrea Hotel & Spa

Sometimes, we can get caught up in the materialistic elements of a wedding. For June and Rob, simplicity was key to enjoying the most important day of their lives. It’s been a while here at WeddingDates HQ since we have come across a wedding album that went back to basics and truly captured the enjoyment of each and every guest throughout the day. The genuine laughter and truly Irish moments documented by Paul Duane Photography made us smile.

June’s beautifully swept up-style and delicate drop earrings were the perfect complement to show off her stunning one-shoulder mermaid style gown. While her bridesmaids donned short and sweet lace dresses set off with soft romantic curls. Love and laughter shone throughout every part of their wedding day.

And boy was there dancing…

The Proposal…

“Rob proposed on a cliff overlooking a stunning beach on the southern tip of Lanzarote. He got down on one knee with a lollipop ring. It was really sweet and I was not expecting it at all, and of course you can guess the answer I gave.”

On The Venue…

“We wanted somewhere modern with a good reputation that was between our two hometowns. Once we met Karen at Loughrea Hotel & Spa, we knew she would be so easy to work with and that we had found our hotel. The staff at Loughrea Hotel & Spa were so accommodating for any queries we had. The Supermacs boxes and the mojitos were big talking points for our guests.”

On The Photographer…

“Our photographer, Paul Duane, took some beautiful natural shots that weren’t posed, including some of our guests. These were my favourites of the day, these shots really captured the fun and laughter we had. Paul was really relaxed which put our entire wedding party at ease. We cannot thank him enough.”

The Highlights…

“I remember laughing so much with Rob throughout the mass. Our priest kept making little jokes to ensure we were relaxed and enjoying the ceremony. It really set us up for the day.”
