Claire and Seamus – St Patrick’s Church Strathaven & The Strathaven Hotel

Claire and Seamus fell in love with the Strathaven Hotel after a visit to a Glasgow wedding show. At last they had found somewhere they adored which was equidistant from both family homes in northern England and Ireland. It was slap bang in the middle of everyone’s journey – including the bride and groom’s journey from their adopted city of Aberdeen. It was also on the doorstep of the quaint and beautiful St Patrick’s Church and the very welcoming, and entertaining, parish priest, Father Tom Devine. It’s so nice to be given a warm welcome in a church, and Father Devine made sure everyone felt at home. He conducted a very beautiful service and delivered some of the funniest sermon lines I’ve heard. A great choice for Seamus and Claire.

I only got to meet Seamus and Claire for the first time at the wedding rehearsal the night before the big day and, having spent some time in their company, I hope they get a chance to return to Strathaven on a regular basis in the future. Mari and I had a great day. It’s such a difficult task to organise a full church wedding and reception from a distance but the whole day was flawlessly executed. It was as if they were locals! It was perfect!

Sheila and Malcom once again delivered exactly what I’ve come to expect from the Strathaven Hotel but this time Sheila encouraged me to try the Love Heart group photo on the lawn. I think it worked beautifully and I can see another quality print appearing in Sheila’s wedding gallery sometime soon! Of course the day was all about Seamus and Claire. It started with my favourite service of the year and just got better and better. All of the meticulous planning paid off and thank you for giving me the opportunity to play my small part in your special day. Here are a few memories of the day you all arrived in Strathaven for the most special of special occasions……
