A stylish wedding with 50 guests
This is one of the very few weddings I had the pleasure of capturing in 2020. A small wedding by Irish standards, Aislinn and Ronan had just 50 guests for their stunning intimate Virginia Park Lodge wedding. It was an absolutely incredible day though and really hammered home the point that it doesn’t matter how many guests you have, all that matters is the emotions, your closest friends and family and the two of you.
Virginia Park Lodge holds a very dear place in my heart as this is where I got married in 2019! I remember seeing the venue for the first time and being completely blown away by the grounds, the lodge, the food and the amazing service by all the staff. So when Aislinn and Ronan contacted me to photograph their wedding in my favourite venue I jumped at the chance!
The lodge is both effortlessly elegant and luxurious while also feeling like a home away from home. It perfectly catered for Aislinn and Ronan’s intimate wedding and made everything feel so cosy and relaxed. Theres so many places to choose for photos in the grounds, you’re really spoilt for choice, the lake and pier, the parter garden and the wooded area beside the lodge, plus the stunning lodge itself which is so beautifully decorated and designed.
Aislinn and Ronan both got ready in Virginia Park Lodge before heading to the church up the road. The bridal suite is HUGE and absolutely beautiful, its definitely the perfect setting for those getting ready shots! After the ceremony the guests returned to the lodge for drinks and canapés on the terrace in the sun, who could ask for more? Given the excellent weather they even decided to do their speeches outside too which was wonderfully fun and informal before trouping in for dinner in the beautifully decked out dining room courtesy of Hilary the florist of Virginia Park Lodge.
