Yes, I know that overall the weather should not have a bearing on a wedding day, its having close family & friends along sharing the days events & celebrating with the happy couple – but – from a purely selfish point of view its one of the major headaches for me !! Too sunny and everyone squints, too cold and people appear to be a shade of blue, too wet and everything has to be shot indoors. Saturdays wedding was no exception – raining in the morning (damn !) but dried up nicely for the ceremony (yippee!) – then, just 10 mins from the hotel the skies darkened & heavens opened (damn!). Luckily, the reception was in the beautiful Tulfarris Hotel and Lynne & Joe had the full use of the stunning Manor House for photos. However, on arrival at the hotel the clouds parted & the sun shone down, everyone enjoyed themselves at the drinks reception in the open courtyard, for a couple of hours the summer made an overdue reappearance. See below for a few draft shots from the day.
Was really looking forward to my first wedding shoot in the beautiful Ballymagarvey Village this week – unfortunately I discovered that Meath not only has a dodgy Leinster title, but also dodgy weather ! Leaving the church on Iona road in bright sunshine we were greeted with torrential downpours & thunder & lightening once in the Royal County. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of Louise & Colm however, and we even got a quick break in the rain to get a few outdoor shots. As I left, Colm was warming up the keyboard in preparation for what looked like was going to be a great evening.
This is my first attempt at my blog and am using Fridays wedding of Samantha & Robert to start. There are very few firsts for me at this stage, but when we heard that the limo carrying the bridesmaids had crashed, and they were not allowed to leave the scene, I chalked it up. Luckily no-one has hurt, and Samantha was as cool as anything, just sitting in the car chatting to the guests. The ceremony was nearly an hour late starting, but, just to confirm that good can come from anything, when the ceremony finished there was a very quick break in the rain which enabled us to get a few photos in nearby Ardgillan Park
