Newpark Hotel Wedding- Kilkenny | L+N

Newpark Hotel Wedding in Kilkenny

The bride and groom were a charming, loving couple, and it was such a delight to work with them. Kilkenny based wedding with a beautiful couple and lovely guests. Wedding prep and ceremony took place in a Roman Catholic Church, Tullaroan, Kilkenny. Followed by a beautiful location at Kilkenny Castle and wedding reception at Newpark Hotel, Castlecomer Rd, Newpark Lower, Kilkenny.

…the story began when the couple got engaged back December 2016. Christmas day proposal! This is cool 🙂 They decided to have their wedding 18 months later after engagement.

Morning Preparations

Morning preparations were in a Town of Tullaroan, Kilkenny where they also had a church ceremony at Church.

After the ceremony we went for a bridal party and the couple photos to Kilkenny castle – the famous Castle 🙂

Reception at Newpark Hotel

The venue has forty acres of parkland and with award-winning landscaped gardens, the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny provides an opulent and perfect backdrop for a wedding day. A bit of a fact – the first ever wedding reception was held at the Newpark Hotel in 1966 and therefore the staff are very experienced in looking after and assisting newlyweds on their most important day.

Wow, what a brilliant day yesterday was! Friends, sunshine and cameras – nothing could spoil it 😉

Myself and my very good friends Ugis Naglins  and his wife Anda Naglina  decided to do a photoshoot of them. They tow are amazingly talented photographers. In fact - this was the very first time for them to be on a Couples shoot! So yesterday, we met up so that we can scout locations for the beautiful shoot.

I am so lucky to be photographing them two - Ugis and Anda who are the nicest and easily the coolest couple you could ever meet! Ugis is an amazing wedding photographer in his own right and Anda is newborn, family and couples photographer so I knew the pressure was on.🙂

For now though, here are some of my favourite photographs from yesterday’s Couples shoot:

On a separate note - I’m just going to say about my favourite and in my opinion the best location in Ireland for a Couples Shoot an engagement shoot or elopement. It’s also my most popular location with visitors to Ireland – Wicklow. Otherwise known as ‘The Garden of Ireland‘ Wicklow is located just outside of Dublin.

Regardless of the weather, the scenery here is beautiful so it doesn’t matter if it is cloudy skies, wet or bright and sunny. It is the best location in Ireland for a Couples shoot an engagement shoot or elopement, it will always work…!

Summer City Wedding

What an amazing day this was. Agate and Mat's Destination Wedding Riga, Latvia was such a pleasure to photograph.

The couple are one of the nicest and most relaxed bride and grooms you could wish to meet. Everything about their special day was perfect. Day started by me photographing Agate at the hotel as she got ready with her bridesmaid. Such a happy atmosphere during the bridal preparations. The bride Agate, I think, definitely wins the prize for being the most relaxed bride ever! Very multi-talented she had put so much effort in the planning and preparation of her wedding. She is a wedding planner herself!

Happy and relaxed was the moto of the day. Vibe of the day was one of happiness and celebration, we had beautiful weather too. The sun didn’t stop shining and it was nothing less than this bride and groom deserved.

The historic Great Cathedral , where couples get married, is absolutely stunning and has so much character. You can feel the history of the place as you walk through the doors. It really is an incredible space to have a ceremony. The garden in particular, where the drinks reception took place, looked beautiful, especially with this being a summer wedding in the city.

After the ceremony and drinks reception around the City Centre, we all made our way over to the Lodge for the wedding reception. This worked really nicely- that the bride and groom had prepared special games for their guests after the speeches. This added to the relaxed and unique feel of the day. Then it was time to party!

I would like to make a special mention to all the staff at Lodge who were fantastic to work with and offered so much help too. It really makes a difference when as a wedding photographer you are welcomed so much on the day so a big thank you to everyone involved for that.

Biggest thank you of all though goes to Agate and Mat for letting me capture their amazing wedding day for them. It has been so nice getting to know you both and I wish you both all the very best for your future together. I know it will be a very long and happy one.

Here are a few of my favourite photographs from your incredible day:

Engagement, Proposal Photography

Sunset, Champagne, Love - perfect combination

Engagement photo ideas -popping bottle, bikes, love, proposal, sunset, summer. . . I mean - how much more perfect such a moment can be! As a photographer, they were dream couple to work with!

Kristine and Dominik were an absolute dream to photograph. They are such a fun and massively loved-up couple, all I had to do was leave them to it and point my camera in their direction. Thank you- this is perfect!

I always like to shoot engagement photographs in the evening if possible. The couple- Kristine's and Dominik's engagement photography at the park is exactly the reason for that – beautiful light. Light is king, as I love to say :)

There are many locations that are suitable for beautiful Engagement or a Couples shoot but one thing that dictates the mood is always light.

Thank you again to both of you and I look forward to seeing you both again soon!
