Wedding Stories –

from some of my favourite locations and venues

 

Christmas Wedding in Dublin

I remember that morning well - I had just carefully arranged the bouquet on the mantelpiece, to blend in with the Christmas decorations. I then stepped back to take some photos, only to see the bouquet slowly fall sideways and knock some glass ornaments onto the...

Sunny Autumn Wedding at Killashee House Hotel

Caitriona & Ian were lucky to have a lovely early Autumn day for their wedding. I started the day photographing at Caitriona's home in Dublin. We also had time for a few family photos in the garden before leaving. The ceremony was then held in Rathfarnham Parish...

Winter Wedding in Terenure and Clontarf Castle Hotel

Jenny and Seán had their Winter wedding in St. Joseph's Church, Terenure, followed by a reception in Clontarf Castle Hotel. I started at the Brides' family home, with some photos of family and visiting friends. Then on to Brady's Pub in Terenure for a few photos of...

Galway Wedding – Cloonacauneen Castle & Corrofin

Karen & Stephen had their wedding in Karen's home area of Galway. The day started with getting ready in Karen's house, then on to St. Colman's Church in Corrofin. Following the wedding, we had a short stop in Raftery's pub, across the road from the church. Then we...

National Gallery Wedding

Lynsey & Ian were married in a Civil Ceremony at the National Gallery, just before last Christmas. Lynsey and the bridesmaids got ready in the nearby Shelbourne Hotel - where I met them before the ceremony. We had a few quick photos in their room before heading out to...

Christmas Wedding in the Shelbourne Hotel and University Church

This Christmas wedding started on a bright but chilly day at the bride's home. Carolyn and Cathal are now living in Vancouver, and I had met them during the Summer for a chat and a few "Engagement Photos" in St. Stephen's Green. One of these was used for the signing...

Humanist Wedding Ceremony at Finnstown Castle Hotel

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. A few quick...

Nuremore Hotel Wedding – with Ice Cream included

Allison & Cian were married in Carrickmacross with the reception at the Nuremore Hotel nearby. Following the ceremony we had a quick diversion for a few lakeside photos. Then, on to the Nuremore Hotel, where there was an ice cream van waiting. Luckily, the weather...

Wedding in Mount Falcon & Callow Church, Co. Mayo

This August wedding took place in the picturesque setting of Mount Falcon, in Co. Mayo. I'd photographed a wedding there before, so knew it was a great location. Noelle & Brian now live in Australia, but returned to Ireland to have their wedding here. Both sides of...

Cavan Crystal Hotel – Clones Wedding

  As I drove north towards Clones, I remember being a little disappointed, that it was such a wet day - not for myself, but for the couple who were getting married. It had cleared a little by the time I arrived, but the streets were still wet, and the day was still...

Luttrellstown Castle Wedding

This couple chose two great locations for their Wedding Day. The chapel in Castleknock College for the wedding ceremony, followed by a reception in Luttrellstown Castle. I had never previously photographed a wedding in the college - but recognised the interior from...

Sligo Wedding – Strandhill and Castle Dargan – Laura & John

I arrived at the (rented) house near Strandhill to find a green van outside covered in Aboriginal Art and Australian travel stickers and memorabilia. Inside, the usual "Getting Ready" preparations were in full progress. Laura & John are both from Ireland, but now...

Finnstown House Hotel – late Autumn wedding with Bernie & Cathal

This was another interesting wedding in Finnstown - the peacock was co-operative this time, and almost politely posed for a few quick photos ! The groom also had a great VW Camper Van to arrive in - excellently restored by his brother. As you can see from the photos,...
