This photo shoot took place in Charleville Castle, near Tullamore Co. Offaly. I’m calling this a “pre-wedding” shoot, rather than the more usual “engagement shoot”, as it took place only a few days before the wedding itself. The groom is from the area, and particularly wanted some photos in the castle. Originally, we had planned to get some photos there on the wedding day, but there was another event on then. Eventually, we decided to do it beforehand.
