Have you booked your wedding at Ocean Sands Hotel, Sligo? You have chosen well, not just because of our impeccable service and great food, but because there are so many beautiful places to take those all-important wedding photos. Here are some suggestions:
We’ll start where your wedding journey begins - in the hotel. Our luxurious and stylish rooms make a fantastic setting for your ‘getting ready’ photoshoot. The marble lobby area will make a great backdrop for your reception entry and group shots and of course our magnificent, customisable ballroom can be set up exactly to your liking. We help you to create a picture perfect background so you have photos to cherish forever.
We are lucky to have some of the most beautiful views of the beach and sea right from our windows. Take advantage of the hotel's fantastic location with a beach photoshoot. We all prefer good weather for our big day but even when the sun isn’t shining, the moody sky over the Atlantic Ocean will make a stunning backdrop. Take off your shoes and dip your feet into the sea while your photographer works their magic. There are a million different ways to feature the sea, sand and of course The Old Bathhouse, there since 1912.
Get back to nature and make the most of your wedding car with a 20-minute drive to Beleek Woods in Mayo. The woods are an ideal place to experience Ireland's wildlife and woodlands. Make sure you have a creative photographer with a good eye and you are guaranteed some fabulous, natural pictures surrounded by flowers, trees and maybe even some wild animals. The woods are neighbored by the River Moy which has a fascinating concrete ship in its banks, great for an unusual shot.
For something a little bit different, visit one of Enniscrone’s local pubs to take some humorous and culturally appropriate pictures. A lot of the pubs are decorated in the traditional style, complete with the old Guinness advertisements we have come to associate with warm cosy snugs. You have the opportunity to get a variety of pictures like pulling pints, posing in front of the fire and of course enjoying a pint of the black stuff! One of our favourites is Gilroy's Bar, complete with views of the ocean.
Words can only say so much, sometimes you need to be here to really appreciate the beauty and splendour. Come to Ocean Sands Hotel, Enniscrone and be amazed by our wonderful location and friendly staff and service.
