The sun shone all day !! Yahooo !!!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of an past work colleague of mine, and it definitely was a pleasure. Lots of conventions were broken and it really was a truely personal, no stress, chill out wedding day :)
The sun was splitting the stones as the guests began arriving at St. Patricks Church in Lucan. This I have to say is a little gem of a church. Behind the altar are beautiful ceiling high windows, a dream for a photographer such a myself with a penchant for working with natural light :) After a slight false start, up an aisle with no priest at the top of it, my Bride swept up it in her beautiful grecian style gown. I think that gown definitely set the tone for the day to come, beautiful and relaxed !
After a lovely ceremony and a balancing act by me on the church wall to get the group shot we headed to Leixlip Manor and Gardens . They, I think may be getting sick of the sight of me as it was my third wedding there in the space of a few short weeks. I love working there though, the walled gardens are fantastic and the house itself is beautiful and so welcoming ! Being a lovely sunny day most guests congegrated outside and chatted away happily until the dinner call, munching on lovely personalised M&M's. Myself and my Bride and Groom took a lovely walk through the gardens and a bit of off-roading also into the field too for some couple portraits.
Dinner time flew around (very tasty indeed !) and after lots of lovely chats and catch ups with old friends, it was time for the first dance. The band The Converse Allstars had the place rocking as I took my leave.
Thanks so much Teresa & Kieran for asking me to cover your day !!
