The couple had asked if we could be present for a first look. Naturally we said yes, the story behind where they met was charming. We were to meet out side Ballroom of Romance, in its time it was the local dance hall. It was where Brighdes grandparents spent many evenings waltzing around the floor falling in love. Its an age old love setting for a love story and so no better place to have a first look, a beautiful start to a new chapter in this young couples lives. I hope that many more generations will come back to this spot and remember where it all began. Ians face says he all, that first glimpse of his beautiful bride. It was a very beautiful moment.

We have shot weddings in Ballintaggart House many times before. Clearly we knew our friends a lot more than most of our couples. We knew Órla is beautiful looking soul and Derek is just a brazen rogue. We knew that there was going to be so much love shared and laughter had by all their wonderful friends and family. That we would have a proper giggle when the cameras went to bed. We knew our locations and plan for the day. We knew it all! Yet, on the day it was a different kettle of fish. The moment I saw Órla in her dress, which to that point I had wanted to remain a surprise, it all changed.

Easily one of the most relaxed weddings we shot last year was in Ballinacurra House, just outside of picture postcard town of Kinsale. Our couple Jessica and Dermot had travelled home from Canada to throw a lush garden party wedding with friends and family. Together with ever amazing Annie of Aislinn Events, they planned a stylish party with beautiful big floral blooms in delicate soft peaches and creams. The whole setting had a vintage feel to it with out trying. It was just effortless like Jessica. When we arrived to Kinsale the sun was shining and everyone was bubbling with excitement.
