Ballintubbert House and Gardens | Eimear & Mark's wedding day...

I absolutely love this venue!! So when Mark & Eimear asked me to capture the photographs for their wedding here I was delighted.

Mark & Eimear both work in the Bloodstock industry and the horse racing community came out in force to celebrate with them in the beautiful setting of Ballintubbert House & Gardens (

As the sun shone down on the gleaming Bentley’s parked outside the Old house, I had to remind myself that I was still in Co. Laois.

Everything went so smoothly and when the ceremony started everyone made their way to the beautiful Fountain garden at the back of the house.

We took loads of amazing photographs all over the grounds before the happy couple took the party late into the night.

Here’s just a sample of some of the photos…

Pamela & Brian's Wedding @ Emo Court

Brian & Pamela's Wedding Day.

On a beautiful Day in Emo Chapel, Brian Flanagan & Pamela Conroy came together with all their friends and family to say 'I Do'. It was a perfect setting and everything ran so smoothly, in no small part because of the lovely relaxed mood of everyone on the day. 

One of the nice things about shooting weddings is getting to know the extended family and friends of the couple. Feeling comfortable is essential for getting great shots on the day.  If I can get to know all the extended family it means they are happy to allow me to capture intimate moments..and also they feel confident enough to trust and ignore me!! Sometimes by ignoring me, they let me get on with the job of capturing those special moments.

Here is the official video for James O'Connor & the Friendly Stranger's new single 'Lorraine'.

We filmed it in Golden Egg Studios during the recording of the single a little while back. The single will be launched in Kavanagh's Pub next Saturday the 9th of May. 

I'd like to thank James for asking me to film and photograph the day. Also Niall Harney the great Laois Bassist, Matt Cross the most excellent drummer, Brian O'Mahoney the multi-talented singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer..who also editied the video.

I can't wait for the launch next week, and hope to see you all there to support a great talent.
