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.
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.
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.
I have to say I am a big fan of December weddings for photography! Everyone is all excited for Santa and all the cool presents they are going to get …. unless of course they have been naughty! I had the good fortune to photograph Siofra’s cousins wedding in Tinakilly House, also a Winter wedding in 2017. Peter was also a groomsman at another wedding I shot this Summer in Brooklodge. So when they both asked me to be their wedding photographer I was delighted! Siofra got ready in her beautiful family home in Riverchapel Co Wexford.
