What a pleasure it was to be the wedding photographer at Niamh and Ger’s spring time wedding in Clonabreany House in Co Meath Ireland. Thankfully it was a beautiful warm day with the sun coming in and out from behind the clouds …. Just perfect for wedding photography. I knew Ger from when I had The Portrait Room photography studio in Delgany so I was really looking forward to seeing him and Niamh on their wedding day! I started in Bray at Ger’s house where his family and groomsmen where all getting ready.
Katie and Craig got married on a beautiful April day in Kilquade Church Co Wicklow followed by an amazing wedding reception in Johnstown House Estate in Co Wicklow. The day started off in Katie’s parents’ home in Kilcoole, when I arrived the wedding craic was already in full swing with selfies and champagne! This was going to be a great wedding for my photojournalistic free flowing style of documentary wedding photography
When I met Avril and Adam for tea and biscuits I was totally taken in by the both of them. I loved their story. When Avril told me all the amazing things she had planned for shabby chic Easter themed wedding in Tinakilly House I knew I wanted to be their photographer! Especially when she mentioned she would be wearing an original 1940’s vintage styled wedding dress.
Tara and Martin got married in Ballybeg House Co Wicklow in the first week of January this year. Their wedding was planned to perfection as you would expect from a pair of economics professors! The morning was spent in Grouse Lodge which is the perfect hideaway for your bridal preparations on the morning of your wedding. Tucked away in the hills of Wicklow but yet not too far from Ballybeg House
When Lorna and Darren asked me to be their wedding photographer there was just two of them. But by the time they got married they were three! I absolutely loved working at this wedding in Seafield Hotel Co Wexford. It was such a buzz all day and long into the night. When myself and Chris arrived to do the wedding photography and cinematography we could hear the girls from half way down the corridor! Lorna with her four bridesmaids, two flower girls and her good friends doing hair and make-up. There was never a dull moment in the bridal suite at The Seafield Hotel and Spa Resort.
Weddings between Christmas Day and New year are so popular nowadays. They are great to photograph because everyone is in great form and the homes and hotels are all decorated for Christmas! Nicole and Luke asked The Portrait Room to be their wedding photographer and cinematographer for their wedding in Tulfarris Hotel Resort in Co Wicklow Ireland. My self and Chris (videographer) nice and early to capture all the bridesmaids getting ready. Nicole wanted to visit her Nana who unfortunately would not be able to make the wedding.
Una and Peter chose Clonabreany House in Co Meath Ireland as their wedding venue after traveling all over Ireland looking for the perfect Irish venue. Una had originally wanted to get married on Achill Island in Co Mayo as that is where her family are originally from before emigrating to England. The fact they were bringing so many guests from England with them for the wedding was one of the main reasons they chose Clonabreany as they would be able to “take over” the incredible venue!
As a wedding photographer 2018 was just an incredible summer for weddings. Marie and Joy chose the hidden gem in Co Wicklow that is Woodenbridge Hotel near the popular village of Avoca in Co Wicklow for their intimate and very personal wedding. This was my first time photographing a wedding in Woodenbridge and I was very impressed with it. If you are looking for somewhere to do everything onsite and with an old fashioned rustic feel this could be the spot
What could be more romantic than hiring your very own castle in Ireland for your wedding… that is exactly what Darina and Pete did for their wedding. The other amazing thing they did was organise it all in 4 months! When I first received their email looking to book me as their wedding photographer at Slane Castle I thought they must have the wrong year. When Pete got in touch with me his email was just perfect and I knew whatever the year I wanted to be there to capture their wedding photography.
This summer was just full of amazing weddings. This is Michelle and Barry’s wedding photography from the start of the Summer. It started in Gorey Co. Wexford at Michelle’s family home. I love the photo of Michelle’s wedding dress hanging up in her living room. Not a shot I love taking but in this case her father is looking at his own wife’s wedding dress. Michelle’s dress is in the centre and her sister’s on the left. Wedding photography is all about family and this house was the perfect family home.
Welcome to the unforgettable wedding of Kim and Mick in the unmistakable surroundings of Ballybeg House Co Wicklow Ireland. I absolutely loved being the wedding photographer for this amazing couple. Kim and Mick decided to have me start at the ceremony so, rather than getting the usual bridal preparations I started the wedding photography just before the ceremony began. Mick looked dapper and smart in his crushed blue velvet dinner jacket and dicky bow.
Welcome to the wedding of Eimear and Fergal! This wedding was a real highlight of my Summer. Eimear and Fergal have been so great to work with on the run up to their wedding in Clonabreany House. I really wanted to make sure everything was perfect for their wedding day. Eimear is a real planner and loves the details!
When you meet Aoife and Martin for the first time you notice something very quickly about them.... they are very in love! But not in a soppy way... very much in a way that they just want to laugh. They want to laugh and they want you to laugh too! Their wedding in the incredible Ballybeg House was just that... incredible!
What a beautiful wedding this is! Niamh and Phelim got married in Oldcastle and then went to the stunning Crover House in Co Cavan. The morning started in Phelim's family home where himself and his four brothers were getting ready then it was on to Niamh to another full house of activity and preparations! The sun shone all day and the party went long into the night.
This was such a great wedding to be at, working or not! Susan and Elis have such a laid back style and their friends and family made their wedding more like a party! The wedding ceremony took place in City Hall and Susan arrived in style by Green Rolls Royce. After the ceremony we went into Dublin Castle where the University of South California (USC) marching band where putting on a show.
When Audrey and Marcus contacted me from Australia to be their wedding photographer I knew we would be a great match. This real easy going couple, big into their music, wanted to have a relaxed day with their friends and family. At Audrey's home in Bray everything was so chilled. Everyone got very excited when the VW Camper-van turned up at the house to bring the bridal party to Barberstown Castle!
