Village at Lyons

A grand day out on the Grand Canal

Finally, I got to shoot a Wedding at the awesome location that is The Village at Lyons! It’s been on my wish list for a while and when Arran + Frankie contacted me I over the moon as both couple and location don’t get any better than this.

The choice of backdrops at the location is a Wedding Photographers Mecca, being located on the Grand Canal is a win win with flowing waterfalls, lakes, bridges, interesting doorways, stone walls, mature greenery, beautiful gardens and quirky vintage interiors, theres just so many options that I can’t wait to shoot there again!

Arran + Frankie had decided on a “First Look” a great and less traditional option if you wish to spend the optimum amount of time partying with family and friends, I’m shooting more and more “First Looks” which i’m a big fan of. Having gotten most of the couple shots before the ceremony it really took the pressure off and the couple could relax and concentrate more on having fun with their guests, the Ceremony took place in the Conservatory again a stunning backdrop for the relaxed nuptials, Congrats again to this great couple!

The Lodge at Doonbeg

Designer chic Wedding at Doonbeg

Doonbeg Lodge, Co.Clare was the Backdrop for Helena and Colm's Wedding Celebration, and what a visual feast with epic seascapes and rustic architecture plus a stylish couple, these were the perfect ingredients for some beautiful Wedding imagery.

The Bride provided some Designer Chic with a stunning Wedding Dress design and combined with the Autumnal shades of Bridesmaids dresses these Individual touches created some lovely images and colours, and not to forget the Grooms Party, the Lads were reminiscent of the Original Rat pack with their stylish blue suits.

Thanks for setting the style bar so high guys! Cheers for a great day and congrats again!

 

The Millhouse

It's all in the detail.....

It’s such a privilege to shoot a wedding couple and Clare and Evan were no exception, their Wedding Day provided some fantastic inspiration with quirky detailing plus a romantic setting. The couple were relaxed and really enjoyed themselves and this was apparent in some of the poignant moments captured!

The bride Clare’s distinct look and 1920’s inspired dress added to the romance and quirkiness of the Wedding theme.

The Millhouse was a one stop shop for the whole day with their modern intimate ceremony also took place here. A fantastic couple plus a brilliant location! it really doesn’t get any better!

Thanks guys for making my job so much easier! Many Congrats again!!

 

Leixlip Manor

 

Love is sweet for Deirdre + Simon’s Big Day

It’s a pleasant change to shoot a Wedding locally, the couple who are practically neighbours of mine chose to wed in Dalkey Church and then onto Leixlip Manor. We had a fun filled day and the Bridal Party were great craic {as you’ll see from some of the images}. We had some pit stops  in Dalkey on route to the Hotel and captured the essence of this easy going couple.

There was an infectious happy buzz all day and Deirdre and Simon were a pleasure to shoot.

Congrats Guys!

 

Portmarnock beach

 

Sun, Sea and Ice Cream Wedding Bliss for Emma + Rowan

Emma and Rowan are both avid sea swimmers so it only seemed fitting that they should celebrate their Big Day in the place they met and where they mutually share a passion for the sea. Blessed with good weather on Portmarnock Beach the day couldn’t have worked out any better with Sun, sea and ice cream, it’s a no brainer!

This colourful, fun filled, casual Wedding was the epitome of romance and how to do it differently.

What a fabulous story they told and a pleasure to shoot.

Congratulations to you both!

 

Sharon + JP {Engagement shoot} Phoenix Park

Check out a selection of images from last week’s Engagement shoot in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, with the easy-going and relaxed Sharon and John-Paul. The couple were casually dressed and well prepped for the changeable Irish weather with shades and wellies, surrounded by the famous Phoenix Park deer they cozied up in the sun with a lavish champagne picnic, a few well-chosen props added those essential details to a fantastic and creative shoot, congratulations guys!
