They came from near and very far (Renee is a New Yorker) for an absolutely epic day in Powerscourt estate. The sun split the rocks, they were married in a walled garden, there were ice cream cones and a rocking dance floor. It was perfect. Can we do it all again?
April showers didn’t put a dampener on this day. The love and laughter at The Millhouse was phenomenal. Big love to Fiona, Keith and their gorgeous families. Thanks for having me, I had a ball.
Jenny and Gillian got married on a cold wet day back in November 2017. It may have been bleak outside but the house was warm and cosy and so was the atmosphere. With only 25 guests this wedding had the most amazing feeling, it was relaxing yet exciting and so intimate . It was wonderful to be up close and personal with two beautifully beaming ladies and the people they love most. I felt like part of the family. The gorgeous textures and colours of Roundwood House combined with the girls faultless taste gave me goose bumps. I loved every minute of it. If you are looking for a venue for a small wedding I couldn't recommend Roundwood House enough, it's to die for. If you choose Roundwood House for wedding, please give me a call!
Today is March 2nd 2019. It is a pretty average spring day. It’s warm and damp and about 9 degrees outside. This day last year the country had come to a stand still. More snow than you could shake a stick at and below freezing temps. Kilkenny was the eye of the storm and also the location for Marita and Niall’s wedding.
Of course it wasn’t ideal. There was a bit of worrying and fears that guests and suppliers would not make it but the day had a little extra magic because of it. All of the suppliers did everything in their power to be there and made it with bell’s on. It seemed that everyone gave it 110% to make it that little bit extra for Marita and Niall.
Unfortunately some of the guests couldn’t make it but when the guests did arrive it was a mini celebration, every time and the excitement was unreal.
Lancton’s is the cosiest venue and perfect for a cold dark day. Whilst the streets of Kilkenny were empty Lanctons Hotel was warm, buzzing and brimming with love and excitement.
Happy anniversary Marita and Niall. I hope you are doing something wonderful. I really enjoyed spending a couple of days with you and your family. Even though I was trapped in Kilkenny it felt like a holiday. What an adventure. See you at the next wedding!
It is fitting that I finished editing this Wedding today, International Women's day. It gives me a chance to chat about two amazing international Women who's wedding I was lucky enough to photograph.
Before Ashley and Diane had found each they had both visited Kinnity Castle. This beautiful coincidence inspired them to bring their loved ones all the way across the Atlantic to see them get wed back in this beautiful place. I just love it when people have a big dream and have the courage to see it through.
Their wedding day was cold and foggy but the atmosphere inside the castle was amazing. So much excitement, pints of the black stuff, killer heels and loads of laughs.
Their friend acted as celebrant and added an interesting twist to the nuptials. To seel the deal the girls were handed two rather large shots of Irish Whiskey to knock back, this they took in their stride. This was a first for me.
The rest of the day was a blast. The fires were lit in the cosy bar and 'The Kooky Yukes' where taking requests and the dancing began long before dinner was served. This was another first for me. If the fog hadn't cleared I would have been very happily stuck for the night at this party with these great women.
These two were as cool as a breeze, one of the most laid-back couples that I have ever worked with. They came all the way from the U.S.A to tie the knot. Claudia is an American girl and paddy a native who is close friends with the owners of Mount Druid. Knowing and trusting their venue so much created such an amazing atmosphere. Everyone felt so at home and the Mount Druid was able to shine in its full glory. It was a glorious day with kids running around having adventures, adults kicking back enjoying the views, food, drink and amazing qwirky rooms.
Thanks to Claudia and Paddy for bringing me back to one of my favorite venues and sharing your excellent day. I had a ball.
