Lanzarote | Puerto Calero | Sara & Tony

March 23rd. 2015

Oh bring us back to what was the best week of last year!!! Sara and Tony flew us out to the stunning volcanic island of Lanzarote to capture their wonderful intimate wedding. It was nothing short of a week of love and giggles! We met up with the couple an evening or two before the wedding. We sat on giant cushions surrounded by Moroccan lanterns watching the sun dance over the sea. We sipped on cocktails and chatted about the days that were to follow.

Claire & Rory | Clos la Plana | Sitges | Destination Wedding

May 06th. 2014

When Claire and Rory told us that their wedding would be held in a church which sat on the edge of a small coastal town over looking the sea and that the reception was to be held in a in a unique house up in the hills… we were very very excited. When Claire and Rory said we were off to Spain we were besides our selves. Claire and Rory laughed at our giddiness and were like “Of course your coming with us, we want the epic pictures!!!” Off we went sun lotion and cameras at the ready! Claire, Rory and all the families traveled to the visually stunning town of Sitges, 20 minutes outside of Barcelona. To say Claire was a relaxed bride would be the understatement of the…View Full Post.

Niamh & Andy | La Cala Resort | Mijas | Spain | Destination Wedding

February 25th. 2014

It some times happens that we meet new poppiesandme couples through referrals from their friends. And that is just lovely. We kinda met Niamh and Andy this way. I said kinda because we were still working our friends wedding when we met them. Our eyes met across the dinner table …… {Only joking…okay I’m not!}. Niamh was wearing a stunning blue number and Andy said ” its a pity we are getting married in Spain. Caroline and Eoin are raving about ye.”  I replied while munching on a bread roll {attractive I know!} that we were very adaptable photographers, we were proud owners of battered suitcases and were extremely good airline passengers! We all laughed and honestly I didn’t think any more of it and partied the night away. Then…View Full Post.

Rachael & Anthony | Chateau Pennautier | France

November 07th. 2013

It seems like many many moons ago  we stayed in the sleepy little town of Pennautier, just out side of Carcassonne, France. Rachael and Anthony had a met us by chance back in January and said it was such a shame they couldn’t have us as they were getting married in Chateau Pennautier in France and they really loved the Poppies weddings. I was ever so quick and perhaps not so subtle to point out that yes “We have bags, will travel!!” and that was the start of something special, with two really rather special sweethearts. Rachael is so amazing to be around, she carries an air of infectious happiness, you can not help but smile when around her. Rachael is also a foodie, you can see why we love…View Full Post.

Mary & Robert | Dorset | Lovebirdshoot

June 18th. 2013

With out doubt I have fallen head first, madly in love with this couple. Their love is the sweetest and gentlest I have seen in a long time. Their love is magical. It is pure. We first met Mary & Robert back in October, the afternoon of the Heineken cup match between Leinster and Exeter Chiefs. We had been in contact by mail and phone long before. I was buzzing with excitement and nerves by the time they walked into the lounge of the Westbury Hotel that afternoon. Robert had thought that he was the only one mailing us abut their wedding photography , he was wrong. Mary had too. The whole hour long I was was repeating in my head “Don’t blow it Kate, Don’t open your mouth, Um…View Full Post.
