Sneak Peek – Teresa & Ger

cratloe wedding photography

Teresa & Ger were married in Cratloe Church and had their reception in the Bunratty Manor Hotel.

Things I loved about Teresa & Ger’s wedding:

  • It was one of the most relaxed, laid back, chilled out weddings I’ve photographed. Everybody and everything was so natural and real and unassuming. It was lovely.
  • Teresa and Ger were adamant on doing everything their way and not necessarily doing something because it’s the way it’s always done. It made their day unique and personal. They even had their speeches in the church!
  • The members of the walking club (where Teresa and Ger met) put their stamp on the day with their walking poles arch exit from the church and their friendliness.
  • Ger’s “wow” reaction to seeing Teresa walking up the aisle.
  • Fr. Wall’s sermon was fantastic. I always love when the celebrant is a friend of the couple getting married. It was so personal and meaningful (and funny!).
  • With Teresa and Ger being outdoors people we went to Cratloe woods to take some photographs after the ceremony. We met a lot of other walkers in the woods, some of them even posed for photographs!
  • Co. Clare was in the grip of All Ireland fever (with the first drawn final with Cork being played that weekend) so a guest smuggled a Clare jersey into the wedding car for us to have some fun with!

Here’s a little taster of their day…

Sneak Peek – Sinead & Barry

Sinead & Barry were married in Ballyagran Church and had their reception in the Castle Oaks Hotel in Castleconnell. I’ve already shared their same day slideshow with you, but now that I’ve processed all of their photographs I thought I would share a little sneak peek too!

Things I loved about Sinead & Barry’s wedding:

  • The craic. From the start of the day until the very end the entire bridal party were enjoying themselves. It was a lot of fun!
  • The location – it was my first time photographing a wedding at the Castle Oaks Hotel so I had visited it to get some ideas together. Thankfully the weather stayed dry (just about!) and we got the shots I had in mind. The river flowing by the trees is beautiful, I’m looking forward to getting back there again.
  • Barry’s speech was epic.
  • Their polaroid guest book idea worked out a treat, the bridesmaids were working that polaroid camera like pros!
  • The dancefloor antics were at a new level! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post – from dancing grannies, to tango, to “the fish move”, to “the bowling ball” – I stayed longer than usual I was enjoying it so much!

Sneak Peek – Lucy & Shane

Lucy and Shane were married in Knockaderry and had their reception in the Listowel Arms Hotel.

Things I loved about Lucy and Shane’s wedding:

  • The first look. Lucy and Shane decided to see each other before the ceremony and it was a really lovely moment between them. It’s a great way to calm nerves and just check in with each other.
  • The weather – the forecast was worrying but we got really lucky with the timing and managed to get some great photographs between the showers.
  • Mini Lucy and mini Shane!
  • I love the attention to detail at the Listowel Arms Hotel. They have added a few more little details since the last time I worked there.
  • The dance floor was rockin’! Everyone really got into it. I think I also witnessed the longest ever rendition of “Rock Me Mama Like A Wagon Wheel”
  • The first look. Yep, I loved it so much it’s on the list twice! 🙂
