This wedding was just nothing but WOW, WOW and another WOW! Such a privilege to join Maya & Derek on their special day in the very special venue that is Mount Druid. Their story was nothing less than a fairy tale, having met abroad whilst on their travels, proceeding to travel all around the world just to be together. Originally from New York, Maya finally tied the knot with Derek, a native Arklow boy.
A & B
Leixlip Manor & Gardens
First hearing from Avril in March 2016, this wedding had been a date I was looking forward to for well over a year! Spending a day with both Avril & Brian at Kilkenny Castle in January for their engagement photography session, not only further enhanced my delight to be working with the pair, but reinforced how perfectly compatible and extremely in love Avril & Brian were and are today! Their Wedding Day at Leixlip Manor most certainly did not disappoint - Avril hand collected vintage tea cups from charity shops around Ireland, for a perfect home-made and personal decorative finish to her wedding reception. Tears at the alter with 'Strictly style' first dances combined with elegant, and magnificent minute details, Avril & Brian's Wedding photos display that perfect documentary approach of the most important day of their lives to date! I am excited to share with you all.

Iveagh Gardens Engagement Shoot
I include a complimentary engagement shoot with all of my wedding packages as a way to get to know each couple before their wedding day, the most special day of your life. I believe it is important to feel 100% comfortable with those who surround you on your wedding day - during your morning preparations, watching the walk up the isle, right through to the night's end. This includes your wedding photographer. The relationships I build with each bride and groom to be, to me, are the most valued part of the whole process. This is why I love the engagement shoot! It is a great opportunity to caffeinate over coffee, take a handful of epic, informal and relaxed photographs- the memories you will look back in in ten to twenty years as your 'pre married days'.
Maya & Derek's engagement shoot at the Iveagh Gardens shows just this! What an amazing couple, followed by an amazing wedding at Mount Druid last week. Sunshine graced us with it's presence in Dublin, making for spectacular natural light photography. Here is a taster of their pre wedding day shoot, just as I love it!

Marie & Owen
A St Patrick's Day Wedding, Lough Cutra Castle
Marie & Owen - What can I say! What a fabulous Wedding with fabulous food, family and friends. Even the rain could not spoil the day. From wedding day romance to GAA banter and dancefloor antics - the whole day was a massive celebration from start to finish, at Lough Cutra Castle in Galway. The photos say it all!
Wishing Marie, Owen & Áine a lifetime of happiness together.
Yvonne & Daniel
A Strandhill Wedding
Delighted to share Yvonne & Daniel's wedding day, set in my favourite place in the world, Strandhill, Sligo.
Between the intricacies of Yvonne's morning preparations, laughs in the Radisson Blue Hotel with Daniel and groomsmen and a beautiful wedding ceremony in the elegant and decorative Strandhill Church, the day was set up to be a fun filled, romantic celebration.
A snapshot of Yvonne & Daniel on their Wedding Day. Congratulations Yvonne & Daniel.

Marie & Owen
I first met Marie and Owen and their little girl Áine, last March, around a year ago. I knew instantly that they were exactly the type of couple that I just love to work with, super relaxed, light hearted - an ultimately cute little family. Recently I had the pleasure of shooting Marie & Owen's fabulous St Patrick's day Marquee Wedding at Lough Cutra Castle. I am super excited to share their wedding day blog post with you, but first, a much needed blog post of their Summer engagement shoot. Enjoy!
Avril & Brian
Engagement sessions are one of my favourite aspects of the wedding photography process. I loved the fact that Avril & Brian chose a special place holding significant meaning to them both and their journey together to date.
While at first apprehensive about posing in front of a camera, love and romance flared through Avril & Brian's engagement photos, at Kilkenny Castle, both as chilled out and relaxed as the first time they visited Kilkenny together as a couple, in déjà vu, once again soaking up those holiday vibes. Add in a few memories and it's possible to make anyone giggle!
