The sun was beating down on Ballinagar, Killeigh, Clonaslee and the Hodson Bay Hotel last weekend for the wedding of Gemma McDonald to Ivor Conroy. What a scorcher and what a lovely gang to work with. The laughter started early at Noelle’s Beauty Studio in Ballinagar and continued throughout the day. The chief celebrant Fr Stapleton cracked a funny joke about how the Offaly and Laois gang happily came together for the day, unlike Fianna Fail and Fine Gael who couldn’t agree on a government! Gemma you looked absolutely gorgeous and were such a joy to work with as were you Ivor. Thank you to the McDonald and Conroy families for your hospitality and help all day and the bridal party. Thanks to the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone for all your help and to the ice-cream man for supplying the ice-creams for the Bride and Groom! Congrats to the new Mr & Mrs Conroy . Here’s just a few images from the day. Hope you love them 🙂
