Chloe and Thomas wedding was such a pleasure to capture. It was a wedding brimming over with love and laughter. When we arrived the Armada was a hive of activity with Chloe and Thomass family running about the place with bales of hay and ribbons, not usually what you expect to see in this hotel. We wandered into the function room to find it totally transformed for the couples ceremony later that afternoon. Closes mum has an unbelievable eye for detail and she was making darn sure that everything would be perfect for her little girl. Speaking of little girls, the couples daughter Alana totally stole the show! It became a struggle to do our job and not sit on the floor and play games with this rascal. I guess…View Full Post.

This was one cracker of a wedding. We knew from word go that we would be the photographers and Eilbhe and Jamie didn’t have a choice in the matter. Eilbhe sister is a friend and long time loyal follower of all things Poppiesandme. Lisa ignored gentle protests that Eilbhe may not want us as their photographers. Thankfully when met Eilbhe and Jamie who had flown over from the UK for the weekend we couldn’t help but fall in love with their enthusiasm for their day. It was a match made in heaven! What we adored about the pair was their view point on their wedding. While it would have of the traditional elements… as in Eilbhe would be in a dress and Jamie in his Kilt, there would be a church,…View Full Post.

Its been little over a year since the wonderful Jen and Derek took us to the Cliffs of Moher for a windy cliff walk. We met in the bustling cafe of Joes in Lahinch and chatted about their up coming wedding in Doonbeg, all the time hands snuggled around large cups of tea and coffee while the wind and rain howled outside. Eventually we could hide no more and decided to brace ourselves against the winter chill and create some beautiful memories together. Of course we knew in our hearts this would be just beautiful, isn’t Ireland at her loveliest when she is in the middle of tantrum other wise known as winter! It was late afternoon and as the light dropped so did the temperature and Derek said it…View Full Post.

I am only sorry there was not time enough before now to share with you this fiery Connemara wedding. Our lovely pair Cormac and Sue chose the amazing location of Renvyle House to celebrate. Renvyle is a slice of heaven on earth, its beaches are made of dreams. As it was late in the year the surrounding hills and bogs of Tullyglass glowed warmly in shades of pumpkin and earthy crimson. The textures of the soft tall grasses and the crisp gorse with their fading coconut sent, against the tawny back drop were incredible. At the time I thought how wonderful to be wrapped up in a blanket of such proper Irish magic on your wedding day.
