Barbara and James, What a couple! We first met via Skype on Mothers day this year. Of all the things to be doing on Mothers day, they were chatting to the Poppies! Instantly we fell in love with both of them. The were so at ease with one another and us, it was plain to see their were clearly smitten with one another. Their eyes all a sparkle when then looked at each other, this between the normal brotherly antics of their two beautiful boys in the background. Before we knew it, we we driving out to Tipperary to capture their stylish Kilshane Wedding.

Its been a bit of a manic wedding season. Its been an incredibly wet and dark summer. Yet, there have been so many highlights and we are going to share those with you over the coming weeks. We loved Helen and Rays day. It had been a while since we shot in Ballyseede Castle. Since moving to Kerry, its practically next door! It was such a brilliant day complete with our favourite wedding dress of the year, fields, kisses under bridges and a ridiculously relaxed couple. A day that completely oozed happiness and was such a privilege to be part of.

A few weeks ago we drove to Wexford to meet up with the lovely Wendy and Peter, who asked us to be apart of their wedding later this year. As this lovely pair live in the Scotland we said we would catch up with them next time they were here for a holibob. What a fantastic evening it was. We walked the grounds of the beautiful Johnstown Castle, went for a bite to eat in the fabulous Wexford town and then out to Curracloe beach to take in the last of the sunshine. Roll on the wedding, and more hilarious chats of lego, gin and subcrawls!!!

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.

What do the Poppies do on their “Off Season?” We spend it catching up with the most important people in the world. Our friends and Family. Loved this weekend on the coast of Clare with our seriously great friends, sweet treats in The Ivy Cottage, amazing seafood in Linnanes, Bombay Sapphire and amazing views. “Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget ~ Anonymous”
