I’ve used to work with Ciaran a few years ago, back when I was a trusty cinema hand, little did I know his then girlfriend would become his wife in a beautiful intimate wedding in Ballymagarvey Village. I was pure thrilled when they asked me to photograph their wedding, it was the perfect combination of fun, relaxed and emotional.
When i got to Fionnuala’s house in the morning I started to look around as usual for ideal places to photograph the dress, only to be told, to my absolute delight that sure of course I could take it outside, the shoes and accessories too, make use of the garden! Cue heart eyes! If theres something I love for wedding photos its some natural light and the great outdoors! It also helped that Fionnuala’s dad had poured his heart into his garden right down the fantastic wooden seating area at the back that we used to photograph the dress.
I was absolutely in love these incredibly delicate hair pieces Fionnuala got for her and her bridesmaid from Etsy, they were stunning.
I’ve included this photo for one reason and one reason only, it’s amazing. Why? While with Ciaran in the morning to photograph him and his family getting ready someone popped open some champagne, the cork flew across the room and landed, I kid you not, right here.
Ciaran and Fionnuala decided to do something a little different in their ceremony, which I totally loved, instead of Fionnuala walking down the aisle to Ciaran he met her at the top and they walked down together, which was perfect for them, as thats how they tackle everything, together.
Can we just take a moment for the freaking amazing tree Ballymagarvey Village have? I’m in love with it!
It was a total honour and a pleasure to be there on Ciaran and Fionnuala’s big day and be part of. You couldn’t ask for a better couple or wedding to spend a day at. <3
