It amazes me at every Donnelly Wedding, how each couple manage to put their own stamp on it. This stamp really stands out for me. It was outside the box, in a totally good way. Erin’s dress was not white, but mustard. In fact people are still stopping me in the street after seeing my instagram feed this week, to talk about the dress! To match this wonderfully unique dress was Erin’s flowers. Yes she is a florist! And it showed. The flowers complimented the dress and the Donnelly backdrop perfectly. I don’t really need to say much more. The photos speak for themselves…
The day started off bright & early (albeit 2 or 3 degrees) with the ceremony at 9:30. It was very fresh! Erin was just slightly delayed due to a wardrobe malfunction, but at least it allowed the sun to come out a little bit more, before she made an appearance. Everyone took it in good humour.
Congratulations Erin & Glen. It really was an absolute honour to photograph your day. And I wish you many years of love and laughs together. xx

A bit about a Donnelly Wedding
The unique charms of Donnelly have made many birthday parties, anniversaries, family reunions, club gatherings, corporate retreats and especially weddings, truly unique and memorable.
Donnelly is the only forest holiday destination in the region that has both large function centre facilities and ample accommodation to house all your guests in the one place in our rustic workers cottages.
To be honest, there’s nothing fancy five star or silver service about a Donnelly wedding.
What we do have is billions of stars twinkling over-head at night, and silver rays through morning mist, served as the sun awakens on your special day.
Back when the mill was running, there were plans to build a church for the town, but the community enjoyed the services held each Sunday in the open-air so much, that they decided not to build it.
A growing number of happy couples have picked up the tradition and staged their ceremony under the karris of Donnelly, with their families and friends staying in their own cottages and the bridal party in either the Old Boarding House or Monohan Lodge.
