Emma & Denis – Sneak Peek

I met Emma just over a year ago to discuss her wedding and I knew then it was going to be a great day. They were married in Carron church in the Burren and had their reception in The Armada hotel in Spanish Point. We stopped off at the Micheal Cusack museum on the way for some photographs of the bridal party. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but thankfully I had visited the museum the week before so we made it through the (drizzly) photography session in record time.

Some things I loved about Emma & Denis’ wedding were:

  • Emma’s bubbly personality and contagious laughter – the entire congregation joined in her giggling during the exchange of vows!
  • The sweet cart which Denis built himself. Yep, from scratch. Even the wheels were whittled out of wood. It was amazing.
  • The wedding car. Have a look below. Gorgeous.
  • The hanging flowerpots in the church. Not only did they look great, but they made really nice souvenirs.
  • The moves on the dancefloor – the first dance really set the tone and the guests weren’t long showing that they had some moves of their own!

Here’s a few of my favourites to give a taste of their day…

Ailis & Adrian – Sneak Peek

You probably recognise Ailis & Adrian from the sneak peek of their engagement photo session recently. Well, their big day arrived and what a day it was!

They were married in Crecora church and had their reception in Springfort Hall Hotel. Their wedding was crammed with details, ideas and lovely personal touches. Everywhere I turned there was something to photograph!

Things I loved:

  • The ice cream stand at the church after the ceremony. The weather wasn’t typical ice cream weather – but us Irish would happily eat an ice cream in the rain!
  • The box of props Ailis brought along for the photographs – fake moustaches, blackboards with chalk, umbrellas – genius!
  • The fact that everyone was up for the craic.
  • “Micheal Flatley” revolutionising Irish dance at the reception.
  • How Ailis & Adrian thought of everything from their guests perspective – with colouring books for the kids, a photo booth for the adults, a sweet table, speech betting slips, and load of other lovely touches.

It was tough to limit the photographs to just a sneak peek, but here are a few of my favourites to give you a taste of their day…

Loving & Laughing 22

Loving… finally getting some sunny weather! I was doing some preparation work for an upcoming wedding in the Burren during the week and it was so nice to be out in the sunshine. After the Spring we had we are definitely overdue a good Summer so hopefully there will be more days like this. Not…

Carol & Aidan – Glandore Wedding Photography

Carol and Aidan were married in St. Fachtna’s church in Glandore and held their reception just down the road in The Rectory. Despite a gloomy weather forecast, the weather played along perfectly (well… apart from one shower in the middle of the family photographs!). The location was stunning, the guests were all relaxed and having a good time and it was great to be there to capture the story of their day.

Things I loved about Carol and Aidan’s wedding:

  • The location was amazing. I’d never been to Glandore before but I will definitely be going back. It happened to be sunny both on the wedding day itself and when I went to do some preparation work the month before so it was looking its best.
  • The craic in Carol’s house on the morning of the wedding. From dressing up to practicing pretend speeches it was a barrel of laughs!
  • Anluan (the best man) and Ann Marie (the bridesmaid) were super organised and helpful and really made the day go smoothly.
  • I loved the quirkiness and uniqueness of The Rectory. The view from the front lawn is beautiful and there are lots of lovely little touches inside too.

Here is a quick pick of some of my favourite photographs to tell the story of their day…
