Tankardstown House Wedding

As an Ireland wedding photographer, I must say that Tankardstown is one of the most stunning wedding venues in Ireland! The light is gorgeous, and the beautiful garden fits perfectly in every single shot! If you are planning a Tankardstown House wedding, or an outdoor ceremony, and have no clear idea about where to celebrate it in Meath, take my word that this is a perfect place for it. Even in a rainy days the light filled orangery provides a lot of daylight and is super spacious.

The wedding started on a beautiful spring sunny day, where at 9am in the morning it was nice and crisp. Outside weddings and social gatherings are always a joy for any photographer that loves capturing natural frames and this was an outdoor wedding, which I was very much looking forward to.

Tankardstown House is one of those super wedding venues that was transformed magnificently into absolute beauty. For winter weddings, the fireplaces in the rooms at the main house combine like nothing else in this world, it is a fantastic festive atmosphere. Offering a complete blank canvas-style space, the Orangery is an amazing option on a rainy day, or winter.

Rather than the traditional cake-cutting shot, Khaiyisha and Neill came up with a very interesting (and photographically challenging) idea of lighting up some lanterns together outside of the Tankardstown venue. OMG! This was so beautiful and magical that I can’t still believe it. I still remember the calmed and loving atmosphere and the deep emotions that they both expelled while doing this together.

Definitely one of the most memorable wedding I’ve ever captured! And I couldn’t thank enough both Khaiyisha & Neill for trusting me with it. Also I want to give a massive big “Thank You” to all the wedding suppliers involved in making this day such a beautiful event for the newlyweds!

Morning preparations at the Boyne house Slane

Here the bride and groom planned to get ready in the same place (apart, but close). The Boyne House in Slane, Co Meath offers a cozy ambiance that fits somehow between being timeless and dreamlike at the same time, it is just unique. The natural light coming from the windows is soothing and evenly spread out, making everything look just beautiful. Catching candids of her hair and makeup was superb, and the house offers a lot of creative freedom for moving around and creating lovely compositions that enhance the storytelling vibe of the final batch. And I might have spent too much time shooting the dress, but I simply couldn’t resist that warm and soothing light.

The outdoor wedding ceremony at Tankardstown House

The magical outdoor ceremony was setup in the garden. Emotional wedding promises from both the bride and groom.

Family Photos at the gardens

Family photos are very important part of every wedding, although not many people think they are exciting. I can tell – they can be fun and efficient if planned to be so. Here at the Tankardstown wedding grounds we had a planned list of family members to attend to family photo part and we had lots of fun and relaxed picture taking.

Wedding Reception

Tankardstown house is absolutely one of my favorite wedding venues in Ireland. The space it and grounds provide a very warm welcoming atmosphere. In terms of wedding photography- the possibilities are endless and we would sooner run out of time, than the ideas, even if we had couple of hours.


Lanterns were the choice for the newlyweds instead of traditional cake cutting. This created such a warm atmosphere with everyone around enjoying this moment.
