Beautiful Wedding Photography at the intimate Cougane Barra, The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens

The wedding reception at Dunloe Hotel, one of the best venues in Kerry, was nothing else but perfect – couldn’t describe it otherwise. It was an honor to be doing wedding photography part of such a beautiful day.

It was the first wedding I have photographed at the Dunloe Hotel. Which is a luxury 5-Star event and wedding venue in Co Kerry. But I hope I am able to work there many more times in the future because it is an absolutely beautiful location to tie the knot. It is a relatively new venue, having only re-opened in July 2018 after renovation. It is located in acres of beautiful countryside, just by the side of the most beautiful places in Ireland

The parkland around Dunloe is absolute perfect for photography. I especially loved the trees and fields with horses, it is extremely photogenic.

All in all an absolutely incredible day. Here are just a few of my favourite photographs from my first wedding at The Dunloe Hotel and Beautiful Cougane Barra.

Also – I am very thankful to the bride and groom for letting me be part of their special day.

EMOTION PACKED WINTER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE Lyrath Estate IN Kilkenny

If there was an award for the most emotion and love seen at a wedding, then Lorraine and Padraig’s winter wedding at the Lyrath Estate Spa in Kilkenny would definitely be on the shortlist to win the prize. This was such a beautiful day, so full of love, laughter and happy tears. For a documentary wedding photographer like myself, who lives for capturing genuine heartfelt moments. This wedding was an absolute pleasure to be a part of.

Lorraine and Padraig are such a brilliant couple and couldn’t have made me feel more welcome. Add to that the Lyrath Estate Spa, a really beautiful wedding venue in Kilkenny. Amazing winter weather (it was one of the those crisp winter days with blue skies and the sun shining). This was a wedding that really did have everything – including super cute flower girls!

Thank you so much to you both for asking me to be your wedding photographer. It has been so nice getting to know you both and I wish you both a very long and happy marriage together. Which I know it will be.

Rustic Wedding [Destination]

Beautiful Wedding Dress, VW Camper-van on your wedding day. Perfect photography locations and various ideas. Amazing memories to create a wedding album.

It’s hard to know where to start with Kristine’s and Ronan rustic wedding. For a photographer like me who is obsessed with capturing real moment and genuine emotion, this was the absolutely perfect day. Emotion, smiles, tears, laughter, hugs and genuine love was absolutely everywhere. This was a celebration in every sense of the word and it was an absolute privilege to witness and photograph it all.

After discussing the plans for the day and the events involved- I knew that this was going to be brilliant – and that is exactly what it was.

The day couldn’t have started any better. Kristine and Ronan drove with a VW Camper to where their ceremony would take place. This was one of the best “aisles” ever, as all their guests could see them walking towards them and the sense of happiness and emotion in the air was just incredible. The ceremony couldn’t have been any nicer – so full of joy. And then the party really started and it was also very good, well, perfect.

After that it was all about celebrating, laughing and partying with their guests. And what a party it was! There was hardly a dry eye in the house during the speeches and the dancing later on was simply epic! Oh, and in the middle of all that we had beautiful sunshine and a stunning sunset. This really was the perfect day and was nothing less than Kristine and Ronan deserved.

I really can’t thank Krisitne and Ronan enough letting me to be a part of their beautiful day. I absolutely loved it.

Here are just a few of my favourite photographs from what was a very special day.

 

A small tip: Ireland has some really nice farm wedding venues to consider, such as the Ballyvolane House, Hotel Doolin, Ballilogue Estate which has a barn and ranch style area. Read more in an article about Rustic Barn Wedding Venues in Ireland.

Tankardstown House Wedding

I had the privilege to be the photographer for two loving people in Meath, at Tankardstown House Wedding . The getting ready at Boyne House in Slane, Co Meath.

All I can really say about this incredible wedding is WOW!!!!! Not only did I get the opportunity to photograph at Tankardstown House, but every single nook and cranny of this wedding was incredibly stunning. Seriously! From the invitations, the floral, the venue, the reception, the getting ready site etc…. As a wedding photographer this was a really beautiful day, so well organised!

The bride Khaiyisha and the groom Neill were getting ready in same location – at Boyne House in Slane, Co Meath. Wedding ceremony and reception different location – Tankardstown House, Co Meath. Both are only few minutes drive from one another. No worries traveling through Slane on a Saturday when it is Easter Weekend. Every wedding photographers dream! 🙂

As I started with photographing the details I got the sense that this wedding was out of this world! Catching candids of hair and makeup- super, lots of space to move around. Getting the dress on presumed the more beautiful candids I had seen all day so far.

Having never been to an outside ceremony at Tankardstown house- in fact as soon as I walked in- I immediately knew I wanted to use the grounds for bridal portraits. Absolutely loved working in this venue with the bride and groom. It was like their own special place to photograph in the wedding.

Instead of traditional cake-cutting the newlyweds wanted to lit up lanterns. OMG – this was sooo beautiful! The calm and loving atmosphere, the true emotions.

Tankardstown House is one of those super wedding venues (One of Favorites in Meath) that was transformed magnificently into total beauty. With their beautiful, light-filled Orangery – pictures don’t lie, total full spread magazine ready for sure. For winter weddings, the fireplaces in the rooms at the main house and the Orangery’s furnishings combine to fun, festive atmosphere. Opting also for Orangery is an amazing idea! Total blank canvas-style space that couples can make their own with flowers, foliage and favors!

Definitely the most memorable wedding I’ve ever captured, and so thankful to Khaiyisha & Neill for trusting me to do it. Massive big Thank You to all suppliers involved to make this day super beautiful for the newlyweds!

Enjoy the story!
