Looking for a perfect wedding venue to celebrate the most important day of your life? As a photographer, I feel privileged to have witnessed some of the most beautiful, exquisite and exclusive Irish weddings in picturesque and stunning locations. I was particularly overjoyed to be part of Alicia and Alan’s gorgeous black tie Cork wedding at Fota Island Resort. The wedding venue was so lovely that every moment here was pure bliss!
Alicia and Alan’s fun-filled black tie Cork wedding was a relaxed and chic yet elegant occasion. The venue is located in the heart of a gorgeous estate that will surely spoil you and your guests with beautiful scenery. It is ideal for hosting memorable weddings of all sizes. As you arrive, you are welcomed with magnificent oaks and sycamores with a stunning island backdrop for endless photo opportunities.
The groom looked handsome in a black suit meanwhile the bride looked charming in the beautiful gown with a long veil. The gorgeous couple was a dream to photograph. They are truly my kind of couple – joyful, happy, and enjoying their day while celebrating every moment of togetherness. Alicia and Alan went with the flow of the photographs, and this is what truly makes a difference when the couple is open and comfortable with their photographer. As a Cork wedding photographer, I always ensure to make my couples feel relaxed, let their personalities shine and remain as natural as possible.
Alicia and Alan’s black tie Cork wedding day was very emotional, and the couple enjoyed every minute of it while celebrating and dancing with their loved ones. Having your special day at this venue provides you with exclusive access to the recently refurbished Smith Barry Suite, which can comfortably accommodate from 120 to 300 guests. This decorated room comes with a private terrace where you can enjoy comfortable pre-wedding drinks with your guests.
The unobstructed and panoramic views of the island make it perfect for capturing some gorgeous photos. The Fota Island Resort also offers a clubhouse with relaxed settings and is surrounded by lush green landscapes, creating a stunning backdrop for the wedding celebration. As one of the most beautiful luxury wedding venues in Cork, the resort has a range of luxurious accommodation options that your guests will surely love. It offers splendid views of woodlands and golf courses with contemporary suites and guests. Within a short distance from the resort, you will find elegant lodges – blissful retreats for those who love self-catering accommodation but would still love to enjoy the facilities offered by the wedding venue. The professional staff is dedicatedly involved in meeting your needs and offering a customised package to suit your requirements fully.
After the ceremony, we took advantage of this fantastic location and captured some beautiful portraits while not forgetting the family shots. We followed on to take a few pictures of the garden before heading back to the resort to capture a few more of this fabulous estate. Such a beautiful day, and genuinely a loving couple who compliment each other and are meant to be.
With the uniquely stunning landscape dedicated team all in the lap of luxury, Fota Island Resort is a place that truly makes for a memorable wedding experience. If you wish to experience what Alicia and Alan enjoyed on their special day, I encourage you to consider the Fota Island Resort!
