The Best DIY Wedding Ever! - Catherine & Colm

WOW!! What an amazing DIY Wedding!! I have never seen such a great set up as Catherine & Colms amazing home Wedding celebrations. The attention to detail and decoration was outstanding and added to a great vibe with live trad music, a bar installation (essential!) and flowers and candles to set the tone. It was a beautiful day and there was not a rain shower in the world that was going to stop these two! Wishing you all the best guys and thanks for having me!   

The Triskel Wedding - Roisin and Nigel

I love a Wedding Celebration in the City! There are many beautiful venues scattered about the County of Cork but one of my favourite spots for a Wedding is the City itself. Roisin & Nigel chose The Triskel as an awesome backdrop for their relaxed Ceremony filled with fantastic music, heartfelt readings and of course the main ingredient - friends & family. I was married in the Triskel myself so it holds a special place in my heart. rom the Triskel it was on to Fitzgerald Park for some relaxed couple shots before hitting The Kingsley for an entertaining night of dinner & dancing. Cork City Centre is the perfect spot for a Wedding if ever there was one.

Innishannon House Vintage Wedding - Sinead & Mick

If you are having a Vintage Wedding look no further than Innishannon House Hotel. Mick and Sinead took advantage of this beautiful background to showcase their Wedding. This relaxed Summer day was bursting with vintage details, laughter and fun. Congratulations to a fantastic couple! Mick and Sinead, I had so much fun working on your beautiful wedding.

Royal Cork Yacht Club Wedding - Emma & Ian

A "First Look," arrival by boat and a reception in the Royal Cork Yacht Club by the sea! What a day this was. Emma and Ian tied the knot in style in Crosshaven, Cork among a fine gathering of family and friends enjoying beer and wine in the fresh air by the sea side. The Yacht Club was a fab venue and hosted the meal and dancing in true style decorated to the nines. The party was in full swing for the night.

Inish Beg Estate - Helga & Keith

What an incredible Wedding Venue!!! A fitting backdrop for the First Glance, Blending of Sand ritual and some moving poetry and music. I cannot speak highly enough about this Wedding at the luxurious Inish Beg, a private Island Estate in Baltimore, Cork. Helga & Keith chose wisely here - surrounded by amazing walkways in the woodlands next to a stunning pond. This Icelandic-Irish Wedding was a heartfelt ceremony indeed. See for yourself...

Blarney Wedding - Marguerite & Kieran

A private Wedding in a beautiful old manor House in Blarney was the backdrop for Marguerite & Kierans fabulous day. The dancing shoes were out and the laughs came fast and furious. Pig on a spit, singalongs, heartfelt stories and flowing wine filled the air and kept the rain outside where it belonged. Family and Friends tied this special day together and the work that the couple put in behind the scenes really paid off!

Innishannon House Hotel Wedding - Dee + Paul

Since attending a wedding at Innishannon House Hotel as a guest, I was looking forward to photographing a wedding at this venue. The ideal tranquil setting in which stands a beautiful Country House is a photographers dream. Dee and Paul were two cool cats, who wanted the 100 year old+ Farm Sheds at Dees family home in Cork as backdrops in their Wedding Photos. I knew we would get along swimmingly. Everything about this wedding was fun and relaxed and it really shines though in these photos. I look forward to many more Weddings at Innishannon House in the future!

Niamh & Alan - Listowel Arms Hotel Wedding

Listowel Arms Hotel Wedding in Kerry

Niamh & Alan enjoyed a Christmas Wedding in Kerry all Glitz and Glamour with a 1920's flavour. The swing music added to the ambiance of the beautiful  Listowel Arms as family and friends ate, drank, danced and sang till their hearts were content. This was a Christmas Wedding to be remembered - 10 out of 10 for this one!
