Charlie & Glenn @Bloomfield House

On a beautiful day back in April I had the pleasure of photographing Charlie (Joanne) and Glenn's wedding. After the ceremony in Emo Chapel, Glenn and Charlie drove off in their rocky red convertible. They made their way to the lovely Bloomfield House in Mullingar. Blessed with lovely sunshine we managed to get lots of great pics around the grounds and on the pier at the lakeside. Thanks guys for such a great day and for having me along.

Liz & Noeleen's Wedding @ Mount Driud

April in Mount Druid. Summer was on the horizon and everything is starting to blossom. This was my first wedding in these beautiful grounds and I was honestly thrilled. Delighted and excited not just because of the venue, but it was going to be the wedding of Liz Connell and Noeleen Byrne. 

I absolutely loved working with them both. Relaxed and chilled doesn't do these girls justice. They graced the place with their own charm and fun atmosphere... everyone of their friends and family seemed to be on the same page. Here are just a small selection of the photos I had the pleasure of being part of that day.

Corina & Paddy @ Step House, Borris, Carlow

A fantastic day with Corina & Paddy at St. Fintan's Chapel, Portlaoise then Step House, Borris, Co. Carlow. Such a lovely day with these guys all day but then in Step House they had a surprise for everyone!! Loveshack - who are a collection of really talented young singers pretend to be waiting staff. Then, after the meal is finished, they burst into song and totally surprise everyone and get the place rocking within minutes. I cannot recommend these guys enough. A great addition to a brilliant wedding!!  

Tracy & Noel @ the Talbot Hotel

Another wonderful Winter Wedding in January this year. Noel & Tracy were blessed with the weather and the atmosphere which comes with a lovely day like this in January was electric. Here's just a small selection of the photos I took for them..hope u enjoy. 

Joanne & Karl @ Clonard Court Hotel.

Bernie & Michael @ The Dolmen Hotel Carlow

Una & Liam @ The Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge.

Martina & Fergus @ Old Leighlin

Old Leighlin in Co. Carlow is a beautiful little village with lots of charm and was the old stomping ground for Martina. It was great to get the history from both Fergus and Martina...over a pint, in the middle of the day...at THEY'RE Wedding Day!!.

Martina's friend Ken was the driver for the day and I was onboard with them when we took a detour after the ceremony to go to their local in the village. Carey's pub in Old Leighin is a classic old pub. It's small, cosy, and has a nice half-door with a lovely landlady who opened early especially for the newlyweds. Sure what better way to get away from the crowd!! :)

After a pint we headed back to the crowd in the Lord Baganel in Leighlinsbridge. The weather continued to be kind which made it all the better for pics outside. After the meal I managed to squeeze in a few more photos down by the river on the jetty.

All in all it was a great day with great people..hope you get a sense of the day we had from the photos.

Many thanks for stopping by.

Elaine & Tadhg's Summer Wedding @ Racket Hall

June 23rd, the high of Summer, and Racket Hall in Roscrea was to be the venue for Elaine & Tadhg's Wedding. Weather permitting we would have the ceremony out on the lawn.

The good staff of the hotel had already set the scene inside the hotel but at the very last hour decided it was safe to go for it outside. And so, in haste and with army precision they quickly rearranged the whole event so the ceremony could go ahead out on the lawn as hoped.

Elaine and Tadhg are a very relaxed couple so none of this was a problem. The detail and planning that went into this ceremony was evident from the outset, but it happened with great ease.

My brief was simple, to capture the charm and essence of the occasion. Of the hundreds of photos I took for them that day, here are but a few, to hopefully give you a sense of the lovely day we all had.

Thanks for stopping by.

Grainne & Allen's Wedding.

Just a few photos from a great day back in March when Allen and Grainne dazzled on their big day. One of the funniest moments in a cracking day came courtesy of their little man Aidan..when we stopped off in Morrissey's for a pint and somebody put a pint in front of him, then changed it for a small pint of guinness..his face was priceless! I made a small collage of it..

During the ceremony he kept me entertained with his expressions..

And here's some photos from the rest of that brilliant wedding..
