” Darren the photos are amazing! “

The wonderful Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland is a truly amazing setting for any wedding. The Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, Co. Clare is as good as it gets for any couple looking to celebrate their wedding day surrounded by the sea. I’ve been photographing weddings in The Armada Hotel for over a decade and it has long been on my list of favourite venues – the staff, the food and the setting of Spanish Point all make for a superb setting. The pandemic obliterated weddings in 2020 and 2021 but Laura and Ryan did not let that stop them celebrating their wedding day on the Wild Atlantic Way.


Morning Preparations for Ryan and his groomsmen began on the tee-boxes of Spanish Point Golf Club. I spend a little time with them as they collectively chipped, hacked and beautifully putted their way to a successful morning of relaxation.

Laura and her bridesmaids choose the pampering route overlooking the seascape of Spanish Point beach.

The ceremony took place in the beautiful St Senan’s Church in Kilrush, Co. Clare.

We spent a little time on the dunes at Spanish Point before the drinks receptions back at the Armada Hotel where the party continued into the evening.
