Tankardstown House in Co Meath is one of Ireland’s leading wedding venues and it is easy to see why. Seána and Lee’s wedding there was one of the most stunning I have ever photographed. The morning began with Seána getting ready in The Boyne House with her bridesmaids and family. The rooms were big and bright perfect for bridal prep wedding photography.
I love when I get an inquiry for a wedding and I recognise the name! You see Niamh is the youngest sister of an old surfing buddy of mine from back in the day. We surfed together up and down the west coast of Ireland when we were care free and easy, sleeping in cars and tents where ever the waves would take us. I even went on to be his wedding photographer in West Cork shooting it all on film with my Nikon F100 and Mamiya 645.
This is the wonderful wedding of Aoife and Chris who got married recently in Glasthule Church in South Co Dublin. I started at the Church to get Chris welcoming the guests many of whom had travelled from England. The ceremony had so many beautiful touches but in particular Aoife’s Mum surprising the bride and groom by singing on the altar. After the ceremony we waited and greeted everyone at the church door. There was plenty of laughter and hugs for this popular couple. Then Aoife and Chris wanted to continue Aoife’s family tradition of marking family milestones such as communions by having their photo taken in the front garden of her family home. It took a little while for this shy couple to feel relaxed in front of the camera but soon they forgot I was there.
Kay and Paul travelled over from England for their wedding in Aughrim Church and Brooklodge and Macreddin Village in Co Wicklow Ireland. The day started in the Co Wicklow Hotel hidden away in the Wicklow mountains. I regularly photograph weddings in Brooklodge and it is like a little oasis of fine weather and heaven! After the ceremony it was back to the Wicklow hotel for the family portraits and Kay’s wish was to go down to the little chapel by the river for the bridal party wedding photographs
This is a Dublin city centre wedding that I just loved being the photographer at. When Blathnaid contacted m first she was minimal with words. Just giving me a date and location. The venue was 25 Fitzwilliam Place a venue I had photographed in before but not for a wedding. Thankfully the second email had more details of exactly what they wanted. I knew this wedding was going to be perfect for my documentary and photojournalistic style of wedding photography.
So honoured to be sharing this amazing wedding of Nafeesa and Stephen.
Stephen from Co Wicklow met Nafeesa when he went to Canada.
Now both living in Canada they decided to get married in Fitzpatrick’s Castle Dublin, Ireland.
When I met them in Greystones at the Portrait Room to discuss their wedding photography they both had a very definite idea of what they wanted from their wedding photographer. They were looking for as many scenic and romantic photographs as possible!
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.
