Eimear and Niall were a delight to photograph: down-to-earth, warm and just shining with wedding day happiness. Eimear’s simple yet sophisticated cowl back dress made for some seriously elegant portrait shots and I loved how she matched her dusky blue shoes to her bridesmaids’ gowns. In fact, Eimear embodied the kind of bride I love to work with – such a radiant, effortless, unassuming beauty.
Glasson House Hotel is a stunning venue; a traditional Athlone country house with a strikingly modern twist. The new reception rooms were added in 2010, complete with floor-to-ceiling glass. The winter sunlight flooded in and made for some gorgeous, naturally-lit images. Everyone looks their best in natural light – something to remember when you’re venue-scouting!
I also adored the pops of green and scarlet – holly berries, winding ivy, poinsettia and the bold red church doors – against the pale canvas of white and icy blue. But for me it’s the full spectrum of emotions captured in this gallery, from pensive to playful, that really endures.
