September 18th. 2014 | Leave a comment

So now we are all clear on that. Norkapp will always be the end of the world to me though. It was so TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!! Not only because there was enough snow to last me a life time, not only because i wasn’t the only adult making snow angels, or so cold I could feel iciles popping in my lungs, or that we got a sepcial stamp on our postcards, or that they made thee best hot chocolate ever… Nope none of that. It was so totally AMAZING because we saw day time and night time sky in the same Sky!!! I KNOW… go on go back and re read that. NIGHT AND DAY IN THE SAME SKY=TOTALLY MIND BLOWING!!!!!

Talk about being adventurous. Taking your wedding dress with its million layers of stories across the Atlantic ocean to a country you have never been before is no mean feat. For Eric it was a whole new world of adventures, first time on a plane and driving on the other side of the road, first time seeing the sea. I keep thinking back to Erics time here, how utterly awesome and okay scary with the driving part, but just wow!

Lauren and Cian will always and forever be synonymous with our stove! For the first time they were due to meet us in PoppyHQ we had lit our first log fire. Even though installation man had said there “might” be a smell, I wasn’t ready for the fumes that filled the house and set off ALL the fire alarms. So I had to call Lauren ten minutes before we were due to meet and cancel! I was mortified and the house stank for three days after! We did meet and Lauren won us over with cup cakes. { we love sweet treats in PoppyHQ… just saying} It was a match made in heaven really. The couple wed in the conservatory of Kilshane House, in fact HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It was a year…View Full Post.

Poppiesandme go to Norway | Day Five | Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic

September 11th. 2014 | Leave a comment

till though I am guessing we followed the usual format for life on board the Ms Nordnorge. Up have coffee on the couch, watch the world unfold, shower, breakfast, out on deck for exercise and fresh air. Which probably brings us to our first image, where the sun still has not peeped over the horizon. When we pulled into port it was a around 10.30 and had some time to stretch our legs and check out this cloud that was pretty much just sitting in front of us on the water! Much to our delight when we set sail, we went straight into said cloud! It was like being gobbled up by fluffy coldness, so cool. As the sun decided to join us of an hour or so, we were treated to yet more magnificent displays of colour across the sky line.

Its not every day you get a lovely email from another photographer saying how much they like your work. So when on a dull evening such an email arrived all the way from Canada from the very talented Justina, I was blown away. Justina and Eric had married previously and were on a wee honeymoon, with a difference… they brought the wedding dress and Erics suit. Shure why not? There is no where more lovely than our own emerald isle. Eric and Justina put us all to shame while they were here, in just a week they saw more of Ireland that either myself and Sean or I would put money on it they have seen more than any of you reading this!  We met the pair in Hotel Doolin…View Full Post.

One of the many things that we love most about our job it is meeting people and spreading the happiness that Poppiesandme has brought us. Its some times happens that you do a wedding for a really wonderful couple, a couple who asked you to stay for a few drinks or join the party the next day. You know in your business head that you can’t but your when your heart is jumping up and down telling you to stay, well you know that you have had the pleasure of capturing a really cool couple. Then you go home sad that its all over.  A few years pass and you get this email starting “You guys were the photographers for my Brothers Wedding!” You mail back that yes of course…View Full Post.
