Laura & Nick were married in a very personal and meaningful Humanist ceremony at Finnstown Castle Hotel, near Lucan. Earlier on, the whole wedding party got ready in different parts of the hotel, and we had time for some early photos inside and outside.

They had requested a sparkler shoot at the end, and we set it up once it was dark enough. I also had some great assistance from the best man who dressed, ninja-style, all in black to avoid appearing in the photos while holding the sparklers
