Shane & Sharon, Waterford Castle, Ireland
Images coming soon.....
Sarah & Tadhg, Ballycotton, Cork, Ireland
The sunny coast of East Cork was the location for our first wedding of the season, and what a wedding to start the season off with! There must have been many Child of Pragues' left out the night before, as we were blessed with deep blue skies throughout the day as the sun smiled down on this wonderful couple. The ceremony was held in the beautiful Star of the Sea church in the picturesque village of Ballycotton, before guests made their way to Ballymaloe House, made famous by celebrity chef Darina Allen. The attention to detail was evident throughout the day, from the stunning floral arrangements, to the fruit tree, and personalized jars of preservatives. Sarah and Tadgh themselves are incredibly warm and kind, and deserving of each other. For us, the couple portraits felt more like a mini exploration of this beautiful landscape with great friends. Here are only some of our favorites from the day.
Annesley & Fiona, Dublin City, Ireland
New Years Eve 2012. We've had a lot of fun ringing in the new year over the past while, but never as much as the one just gone by! We are always thrilled when a couple makes a wedding their own, and Fiona and Annesley did not disappoint. It started with breakfast surrounded by family and friends, before each made their way to a candlelit St. Andrews Church on Westland Row. After a thoughtful, funny, and emotional ceremony, all the guests were transported to Lotts Cafe Bar where the couple had their first date, via vintage red buses. Afterwards, the guests enjoyed a champagne reception in the St. Stephens Green Hibernian Club whilst Fiona and Annesley strolled the streets of Dublin underneath the Christmas lights for their couple portraits. The speeches were heartfelt and made by those closest to them, before fireworks in the adjoining St. Stephens Green Park announced dinner (totally planned!). To finish the evening, everyone took dance lessons in order to ring in the new year in style. Overall, most awesome finish to 2012!

Lisa & Ross, Dublin City, Ireland
Ahhh, Dublin city at Christmas...You can't beat it. There is a sense of joy, happiness, and optimism in the air. Worries are forgotten, and fun is the name of the game. These same sentiments sum up Lisa and Ross' wedding in the city centre over the holidays. The theme was fun and informal, more about quality time spent together, and less about the typical trappings of a wedding. Speaking of quality time together, the couple's portraits were a blast, combining stunning locations under a winter sun, pints, and borrowed bikes. Best time I've had in the city in a long time :) I went a little trigger happy, but here's some of my favorites.
Eleanor & Donal, Bellinter House, Meath, Ireland
This was our first wedding at Bellinter House, nestled deep in the Meath countryside. Picked by Eleanor and Donal for it's tranquility, exclusivity, and quirkiness, it more than served its' purpose in hosting this beautiful custom made celebration by the couple. The crisp dry day started off on the grounds, with Eleanor in the main house and Donal hanging out with his best-man and brother Kevin in the converted stables. Eleanor entered Culmullen church in style in a vintage Citroen, with her ordained uncle as the celebrant. Back at Bellinter House, the guests enjoyed the whole place to themselves during the couples portraits. The speeches took place in one of the main livingrooms, which gave it a much more informal vibe, before moving to the cellar for dinner. After that, it was party time back on the main floor until the wee hours :) Great wedding, great couple, great venue, great day.
Catriona & Alan, K-Club, Kildare, Ireland
Ferrari's, Champagne, Ireland's most famous golf resort and a beautiful bride. Welcome to the wedding of Catriona and Alan. The day began with the hustle and bustle in their respective family homes before a quick dash across the city to St. Peter and Paul's Church in Baldoyle for their ceremony. Next up was the K Club in Straffan, Co. Kildare where the celebrations began in earnest. We had the luxury of good weather and palatial gardens for the couple portraits, whilst their guests enjoyed their surroundings, champagne and food on the back steps of the main house. (Alan's quick wit meant that no ego was left unchecked during the family formals!) Most guests took the scenic route across the bridge to the Smurfit house where they were entertained by great speeches before being served the K Club's renowned food and wine. This was without doubt the beginnings of a very happy marriage.

Alicia & Jamie, Hotel Hacienda na Xamena, Ibiza
Jamie and Alicia traveled from Australia to Ibiza in order to live out their personal wedding celebration, and did it with style when they chose the stunning Hotel Hacienda Na Xamena in the hilltops of northern Ibiza. Their ceremony, which centered around the four elements - Water, Earth, Air, and Fire, took place in an amphitheater on the edge of a cliff with the stunning vista of the Balearic sea behind them. It was the perfect setting for the perfect couple. The ceremony itself was beautiful, with heartfelt readings from those closest to the couple. Guests soaked up the views from the veranda before sitting down to great speeches and food. Alicia's brother played a mean set on the decks, as he had everyone on the dance-floor non-stop - inhibitions tamed by feathered masks and an assortment of musical instruments. For us, this wedding was unforgettable, and is a testament to Alicia's organizational skills and vision.P.s. Did you see the dress and head-piece?
Aisling & Dave, San Felice Circeo, Italy
You know the wedding venue serves good food when the groom in question is a chef! Hence the reason we found ourselves in Hotel Maga Circe, in San Felice Circeo, Italy for the wedding celebrations of Aisling and David. The day started with an amazing church ceremony high in the hills of San Felice, before everyone descended down to the hotel for ocean views, champagne and live music. As with all weddings in Italy, the courses of food were plenty, but it did not stop the guests hitting the dance-floor to party the night away. It was clear how much Aisling and Dave are so loved by their family and friends, as evidenced by the speeches which were beautiful, funny and emotional. We knew as soon as we met them that this was going to be an unforgettable wedding, because they treated us as close friends from the start, and welcomed us in to document their life without hesitation.
Roisin & Shane, Mulranny, Mayo, Ireland
On the very west of Ireland is the little tranquil gateway to Achill Island called Mulranny. Overlooking the North Atlantic, it is a place of solitude and beauty. A place perfect for the wedding of Mayo bride Roisin and her Kerryman groom, Shane. It was a picture perfect Irish wedding, with the couple surrounded by family and friends during their preparations, a beautifully decorated church ceremony in Curry, portraits on the estuary (with a gusty westerly breeze), famously good food and wine in Mulranny Park Hotel, and dancing into the small hours of the night. GAA jerseys were swapped, the truth came out about the source of Shane's independence, and their little dog even made an appearance :) As usual we shot a lot on the day, but here are some of our favourites.
Fusion Photography wins more Fearless Awards!!!!!
We are very proud members of an incredible worldwide association of talented wedding photographers called Fearless Photographers. Every once in a while, all members submit some of their favorite images from recent weddings and only the very best are awarded Fearless Awards. To be even considered for an award when amongst such talented image makers is an honor. But to receive not one but two awards in this round was amazing. We could not have done it without the fearlessness of our brilliant couples, so for that, we thank you :)
Ruth & Derry, Ballyseede Castle, Kerry, Ireland
One of our favorite places in Ireland is without a doubt Kerry. I don't think we've ever met a Kerryperson we didn't instantly warm to, and Ruth and Derry are no exception. Because they are so incredibly warm-hearted and kind, it was great to be able to spend so much time with them on their wedding day. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Ballyseede Castle, just outside of Tralee, their day began with a romantic ceremony in the quaint little village of Knocknagoshel. After a quick pint in the local bar, everyone went back to Ballyseede to be welcomed by the resident Irish wolfhound Mr. Higgins, and his sidekick Einstein. Traditional Irish music entertained the guests throughout the reception whilst we took Ruth and Derry away for their couple portraits, ultimately bringing them out the back garden just as the heavens opened up... My bad! Special kudos must be awarded to the little bridesmaid and flowergirl who both seemed to have 10 times more energy than the rest of the wedding guests put together (Us included).
Aimée & Adrian, Amante Beach Club, Ibiza
Killer shoes, awesome hairstyles, outdoor ceremony beside the beach, wedding details designed around travelling, four Dj's including Filty Rich, a canvas wedding cake, and the stunning location of Amante Beach Club. All the ingredients for a wedding never to be forgotten! Aimée and Adrian created a celebration of their love which mirrored their personalities and their relationship, and if you'd ever met them, you would want to be on the guest list! The speeches were funny and emotional, during both the ceremony and dinner. The beats, combined with amazing cocktails made for an incredible after-dinner party. We had an absolute blast shooting this wedding, but then again, we had known months in advance that we would! Here's some of our favorites.
One of our favourite Irish wedding blogs is OneFabDay, so we're thrilled that they've show-cased Silvia and Riccardo's Ibiza wedding on their blog today. We're really fond of this couple and have kept in touch with them by email ever since their wedding day. You can check out their wedding on the OneFabDay website here.
Carol & James, Castle Leslie, Monaghan, Ireland
We first met James when his sister Gillian got married to David in Doonbeg, Co. Clare a while back. Getting asked to photograph the wedding of another fmaily member is always a huge honor for us, and the Berkery's are a wonderful family to spend time with. Carol and James chose the stunning surroundings of Castle Leslie for their wedding reception after tying the knot in the quaint village of Corracrin. The bride was beautiful on the day just like the weather, the speeches were funny and heartfelt, and the band were rockin. It was a truly enjoyable wedding to be involved in, and we hope to see them both again real soon.
Brona & Barry, Dublin City, Ireland
We've known Brona and Barry since Naoise and Emma's wedding back in 2009. Little did I know then that they would have such an amazing and heartfelt celebration of their own three years later, and that we'd have the honor of being present at it with our cameras. The day kicked off in quite possibly the nicest Catholic church in Ireland, the little blue church in Kilternan where Brona's little niece Caoimhe put in a stellar performance as flowergirl. After a detour into the Wicklow mountains for their couple portraits, it was off to quite possibly the best steakhouse in Ireland, Shanahans on the Green, before winding up in the famous Fallon and Byrne for their party. With the little touches like vintage bikes, suitcases and decorations to the sweet-cart and signs, Brona and Barry really made the day their own. It's not the easiest to create your own bespoke wedding in Ireland, but these guys did it with flying colors.
Christine & Stephen, K Club, Kildare, Ireland
Christine is no stranger to us, having been bridesmaid at her sister Sharon’s wedding to Gordon at Marlfield House, which we shot a while back. This time around, it was the K Club, home of the Rider Cup which found itself hosting another awesome Glennon party. Because they are both incredibly warm hearted and kind people, it wasn’t in the least surprising that they were surrounded by a large gathering of close friends and family, many whom traveled across from the UK to attend their big celebration. From the get-go, they took the day in their stride, never letting it stress or overwhelm them with the result being that they were in a constant state of laughter throughout the entire day. Not only was there a band to get the dance-floor heaving, but Christine and Steve also arranged a special RiverDance’esque bit of entertainment for their guests, with Steve transforming into Michael Flatley for an all too brief period :) Speaking of Music - Check out the quite possibly BEST dance-off we’ve had the pleasure to witness!
Lesley & Stewart, Rathsallagh House, Ireland
Some of our favorite weddings are those where things don't always go as planned. Whether it's the groomsman's trousers being too long for his legs, or the fact that mother nature has decided that there shall be no outdoor ceremony in the walled gardens! The reason we love these things is because the attitude of the couple and their guests on the day prove beyond doubt that a wedding really is not about the details. It's about something much deeper, personal and heart-warming. Lesley and Stewart's attitude to life are living proof of this. Romy still brought her sprinkle of magic to the ceremony, the first reading according to Winnie the Pooh still filled the air with laughter, the bride still looked beautiful, and all the groomsmen still had tailored trousers by the start of the main event. To Lesley and Stewart - Thank you for inviting us to share in your amazing day.
Dolce Vita in Florence!
Our Italian destination wedding is now on Weddingchicks.com. This particular wedding has become more of an internet/magazine hit than any other we've done. Nevertheless, we never get tired of looking at these images :)
Jodi & Wade, Cala Tarida, Ibiza
Ibiza in June is a wonderful place. The main throng of holidaymakers are still waiting to catch their flights. The weather is beautiful without being too hot, and the local businesses are open in anticipation of the summer months ahead. This was the scene in which Jodi and Wade arrived on the island, together with their closest family and friends. Their ceremony at Casa Mila overlooked the Balearic sea on the west coast, perfect for the famous Ibizan sunset. Wedding planner Candida ensured that everything went smoothly, from the relaxed barbeque, the colourful bouncy castle (for both young and old!), and immaculate table settings complete with mini bottles of Jägermeister for all the guests. And as the sun went down on a perfect day, the Dj kicked it with some quality tunes to remind us all that we were in Ibiza, and this is how you party in Ibiza! It was an honour to have been part of Jodi and Wade's day and we hope to meet up with them soon....maybe in Pacha :)
Aoife & Darrach, Dublin City, Ireland
It was one of those typical days where the Irish weather was being it's usual typical self. You know the type, where one minute it's blues skies, and the next it's lashing rain! Well, it didn't dampen the spirits of newly-weds Aoife and Darrach who were prepared with umbrellas and a devil-may-care attitute towards the skies. Their ceremony took place in the historic and beautiful university Church on St. Stephens Green before walking through the streets of Dublin to their reception at the equally famous Fallon & Byrne, but not before a quick stop-off at Nearys Pub with guests in tow for an obligatory pint of Guinness. The whole day had that laid-back fun and relaxed feeling, which was an honest representation of both Aoife and Darrach's personalities. Although Aoife is more at home behind the camera giving directions during PR photoshoots, there was great satisfaction in finally getting her in front of the camera for a change :) Their whole wedding was a montage of great moments, but here are some of our favs....
Florence, Italy feature in Confetti Magazine
Leona and Patrick's destination wedding in Florence, Italy was epic. Full of inspiration. Makes you wanna go somewhere filled with sunshine. Confetti Magazine have just done a four page spread on their wedding, complete with ideas and inspiration on how to get the look. You can see more of their wedding images on our featured weddings tab. Enjoy!
Think Tank Airport International V2.0 Review
One of the key factors we face when traveling to any photo assignment is the ability to safely transport our camera equipment. For us, this means never letting it out of our sight, and for that reason we never check it at the airport. The problem we face is the reduced hand luggage allowance the European airlines will entertain! Hence the reason we love Think Tank's Airport International V2.0. I won't go into a detailed review of the bag as there is already a terrific review to be found here. This is more about why we chose the Airport International over the Airport Security, and any other manufacturer's roller bags. In one simple word: Dimensions. This bag is the only one I found which complied with both RyanAir* and Aer Lingus' baggage restrictions. As you can see from the photos, it is still large enough to accommodate a Canon 1DmkIV, 5DmkII, 16-35mm, 70-200 2.8, 85mm 1.2, and 24-105mm plus a Quantum Turbo, 2 x 580 exII speedlights, RF triggers, and a 13" Macbook Pro. One thing to note is that the tops of the cameras' protrude a little and therefore cause an issue when putting the bag into the airline's baggage tester. This is not an issue if using Canon's 5DmkIII or Nikon's D800 without the battery grips. You also need to have the low dividers fitted in order to carry a laptop, but when fitted, It will easily accommodate a 15 laptop. So, if you are in the market for a professional roller bag that doesn't scream 'Professional photography gear inside', and you need the flexibility of being able to fly on various airlines around the world, then I would recommend this bag above all others, just for the piece of mind, never mind all the amazing features it possesses.
*I don't fly RyanAir, but they are a good airline to check your restrictions against based on the fact that if you can successfully fly within their perimeters, you are guaranteed success with every other airline in the world!
Anna & Rob, Carton House, Kildare, Ireland
This was a particularly special wedding for myself and Jenny, for the simple reason that we had already photographed the weddings of both of Rob's sisters in previous years. So to be asked a third time was a huge honor and privilege. It was also our third Christmas wedding at the renowned Carton House. What was also super cool was the fact that Rob and Anna had brewed their own 'Matrimony Ale' for the big day. We could not have asked for a better way to wrap up 2011. Here's a preview of some of our favorites.
The Irish Wedding Journal 2012 Spring Edition
If you happened to be in Dublin this weekend, you would know that the annual Irish Wedding Journal Show was taking place in CityWest. If you happened to be looking through the 2012 Spring edition of their magazine, you might notice the double spread feature on a Maltese wedding we shot included as part of their 7 real weddings. You can check out the full set of images from Adrian and Ger's wedding in our 'Featured Weddings' section of the website.
Published in IRISH TATLER Magazine
Yolanda and Frank's wedding in Castle Leslie was one we will never forget so we were delighted to get a phone call asking us if we would give our permission to publish their images in the new January/February 2012 edition of Ireland's Style Bible, IRISH TATLER Magazine. The whole wedding day exuded elegance, from the venue to Yolanda's outfit, so I can see why the magazine felt it was a perfect source of inspiration for their readership. The magazine is on the shelves now and you can see more of their images on our blog here
Jackie & Mark, Boyne Hill House, Meath, Ireland
I'm not exactly sure what it was that made this one wedding so special. Maybe it was the incredible wedding dress Jackie wore, and the unique accessories she either bought or made to compliment it. Maybe it was the location, a venue that only just opened it's doors to weddings and the fact that Jackie arrived to the ceremony via a tunnel. Or maybe it was the ceremony itself, one which catered more for heartfelt speeches and meaningful music than formality. (You know it's good when the priest declares he wants to quote Bob Dylan!) It could possibly have been the main speeches, delivered in the bar before the meal and the fact that the best man sang the coolest best-man's song ever (which he wrote himself). Brilliant!.Or maybe it was Jackie and Mark themselves, two of the nicest and laid-back people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Either way, it was very special and we are so glad we were there for it.
ONE FAB DAY Feature
We were big fans of ONE FAB DAY, an Irish wedding blog oozing with style. So we were thrilled when they featured one of our destination weddings from Florence, Italy. Leona and Patrick's wedding was spectacular and unforgettable, full of colour and romance. You can see their wedding on One Fab Day's blog here and more of their images on our blog here. We are looking forward to working closely with the One Fab Day crew in 2012!
BOHO UK Wedding Blog Feature
Susan and Dani's wedding in Formentera, a little island off the coast of Ibiza was memorable for lots of reasons. Myself and Jenny LOVE Ibiza, having got married there ourselves back in 2009. As it turns out, so did Kelly, the entrepreneur behind BOHO Weddings and Events. So it seemed a perfect fit when Kelly featured Susan and Dani's destination wedding on her blog. You can see more of their images here.

Published in USA's 'Get Married Magazine'
The call came out of the blue. Truth is, we had never heard of "Get Married Magazine' before, but nevertheless they were keen on using one of our images from a recent destination wedding to lead a feature they were about to run on Destination weddings in their latest edition of the mag. Considering the amazing talent in the states, it was a great compliment to have been asked for our work to be featured.
Tracy & Andrew, Waterford Castle, Ireland
This was Tracy and Andrew's second wedding, the first having taken place shortly beforehand back in China. For their Irish celebrations, they chose an intimate blessing at the picturesque 500 year old Waterford Castle in Southern Ireland. Family and friends travelled from all over the world to be with them and the day itself certainly didn't disappoint. Surrounded by the King's channel from all sides and blue skies from above, most of the day was spent outside. Even when it got dark, everyone was outside again to launch Chinese lanterns in celebration of this very special couple. It was a privilege to have been chosen to record this wedding and I can't wait to get their album over to them.
Susan & Daniel, Formentera Island, Ibiza
The tranquil south beaches of Formentera Island provided the backdrop for the destination wedding celebrations of Susan and Daniel. Guests travelled from all over the world to this little piece of paradise in the Balearic sea to witness the union of two very special people. Instantly likeable, their love for each other is matched only by their love for their family and friends. Based on speeches made on the night, that love is clearly mutual. It was truly an honour to have spent time with both Susan and Daniel and to be a part of their celebrations. Here's a small selection of my favourites from the day.
Ruth & Jamie, Village at Lyons, Kildare, Ireland
A blustery wind only added to the movement of the veil. The sporadic showers only made the ground shine that little bit more. And the odd cluster of clouds only added drama to the sky. But when they ever had to venture outside, the sun always shone and the sky always remained blue for Ruth and Jamie on their wedding day. From the quaint Church in Straffan, the retro styling of the his and hers vintage Mercedes cars, the magical surroundings of the Village at Lyons and even the cute little details like the Faerrero rocher trees, everything came together to create a truly fantastic day. There were even white doves hanging around for good measure! (At least I think they were doves!!!!)
Jen & Darren, Powerscourt, Wicklow, Ireland
It was clear from our initial meeting that both Jen and Darren wanted their wedding to be unique and personnal, so it was no surprise when they informed us that they would be hosting their wedding reception in Powerscourt House, a stunning venue full of history, old stone columns and impressive gardens, not to mention the un-interrupted view of County Wicklow. Their wedding day was a true reflection of their personalities, with it's laid back feel, champagne on the lawn, and each room in the house designed to make their guests relax and have a good time. Everyone at the wedding was super nice and made us feel welcome, which in turn allowed us to capture the great moments of the day.
Lindy & Chris, Dublin City, Ireland
Lindy and Chris came all the way from Calgary in Canada for their destination wedding here in Dublin city. Due to the distance and time zones, we kept in touch via email so much that by the time we got to meet them just before their big day, we felt like we had known them for years! Their love for each other and lust for life is infectious so spending the full day with them was a blast. They had an amazing ceremony in Newman House, officiated by celebrant Romy , and then on to Shanahans on the Green for their meal. After the emotional and touching speeches and moustashe fittings, it was off for a pub crawl around Dublin City. A fitting end to a truly personalised wedding day.
Silvia & Riccardo, Es Jondal, Ibiza
Silvia and Riccardo are from Italy but live in London. When It came to choosing a venue for their wedding, Ibiza became an obvious choice due to the fact that both had spent many months on the island throughout the years. They are probably the most laid-back couple we have ever had the pleasure of photographing and did not let the pressure of the day get to them once. They also added some really nice touches to the celebrations including a cocktail bar outside the church and dinner in the famous Blue Marlin Beach Club on the south of the island.
Leona & Patrick, Florence, Italy
Love. Love. Love. It's the first thing that comes to mind when you are around Leona and Patrick. After 8 years together, they decided the time was right to say their vows and chose the spectacular backdrop of Florence in Italy as the venue in which they would say them. Set high in the hills of Fiesole overlooking the famous Italian city, even the predicted thunderstorm failed to diminish the enthusiasm everyone felt on the day. As it turned out, the storm was kept at bay for an additional 24 hrs and the day turned into one of the most amazing wedding celebrations myself and Jenny have ever been a part of!

Suzanne & David, Dublin City, Ireland
Although we are based in Dublin, the majority of our weddings are located much further afield. So it was a treat to shoot this fab wedding in Dublin's city centre. St. Stephens green is a famous landmark and was conveniently placed between the church and reception, so of course we were going to take advantage of it! Suzanne and David were so chilled out on the day and were a breeze to work with! Here's some of our work....
Colin & Mairead, Killarney, Kerry, Ireland
There's nowhere more picturesque in Ireland than Kerry on a nice day! And we got a great day for Colly & Mairead's wedding in Killarney. With everything literally a stone's throw from the Cathedral and reception, It was a case of just picking some of the fab locations on offer for the wedding shots. As they have been together over 10 years, It was great to be able to share in one of the most memorable days of their lives together. Here are just some of our favorites from the day.
Keith & Jenny
Claire & Ciaran, Enniskerry, Wicklow, Ireland
Blue skies teased Claire and Ciaran right up to their wedding day, where the clouds descended right down the mountains. Rather than put a damper on the day, It actually created a very special atmosphere, albeit a bit cold! As well as walking away from foxrock church with a new husband, Claire also walked away with a love cube! Their reception still had that cosy winter feel, with it's rich colors, dimmed lights and candles everywhere. A perfect receipe for photos which we duly took advantage of! Here are some of our favorites from a truly wonderful couple.
Keith & Jenny
Yolanda & Frank, Castle Leslie, Monaghan, Ireland
This was our first time shooting a wedding at Castle Leslie, and we loved every minute of it. The place has so much character and is quite eclectic! Therefore, It was the ideal venue for Frank and Yolanda. They're both a lot of fun to be around, and looked so much in love throughout the day. Yolanda looked stunning on the day, which was never going to be a suprise for us as she is a style guru herself. Great day, great couple, great wedding party! Can't wait to start designing the Album.....
Jenny & Keith
Orla & Ronan, Carton House Maynooth, Kildare, Ireland
Orla and Ronan travelled all the way from Australia to celebrate their winter themed wedding with family and friends on the beautiful grounds of Carton House. For us, it was the second wedding we had photographed there on the date of the 23rd December, and we were excited to return again, as this time there was even more snow! Wanting to take advantage of the stunning surroundings, Orla threw on her snow boots and we got some fantastic shots in the snow until our hands got too cold to operate the cameras!!!! This was truly a great wedding to finish 2010 with. Here are some of our favorites from the day.
Keith and Jenny
Selma & Nizar, Barr Al Jissah, Oman
Words cannot describe how incredible Selma and Nizar's wedding day was, so we're just going to let the images do the talking! Having the wedding ceremony at dusk gave a magical feeling to the whole experience. Thank you Selma and Nizar for allowing us to share in your special day and for pulling out all the stops to ensure that your guests never stopped having fun the entire time! Here's a selection of our personal fav's.
Keith and Jenny
Maeve & Paul, Dublin City, Ireland
If Carlsberg made the ideal Fusion Photography couple, then Maeve and Paul would be it! When I first met them to talk through their day and exchange ideas for their photography, they invited me to a potential location for their shots on the day. Based at the very end of the grand canal dock area, it was absolutely perfect. The real difficulty was narrowing down the amount of shots we could do in order to keep the shoot within the time frame, as the potential was massive. The finished images are a result of a brilliant and fun couple totally in love, and passionate about getting great images of their wedding day. I could do that photo-shoot over and over again.
Ger and Adrian, Mdina, Malta
Adrian and Ger are such a fun couple, we knew they would have a really fun and crazy wedding! When they told us they were gonna exchange vows on the Island of Malta, it got really exciting. Let's paint a brief picture.... 38 degrees celcius, ancient walled city of Mdina, vintage beauford, stunning cathedrals, champayne, Cisk beer and dancing by the mediterranean. An extra for us was that the light over there is beautiful and practically made our flashes redundant! Enjoy this selection of images from their day.
Jenny and Keith
Olga & James, Powerscourt, Enniskerry, Wicklow, Ireland
From the hustle and bustle of Hongkong to the serenity of Wicklow, James and Olga chose a great location for their destination wedding in Ireland. Powerscourt House on a beautiful day. Outdoor blessing under blue skies with the Wicklow mountains as a backdrop. Traditional Irish music and dancers. Asian themed cocktail bar and dancefloor. What a combination for a great wedding photo-shoot!
Enjoy the photos, Jenny and Keith
Gillian & David, Doonbeg, Clare, Ireland
When Gillian and David asked if we would shoot their wedding in Doonbeg this august, we were trilled as I am in love with this stunning area. When we arrived down the day before to do a final reece at all the locations, we knew that if we got the promised weather, we would be like kids in a candy store on the day. Well, we got the weather....... The wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful and quaint town of Miltown Malbay on the Clare coast, before moving on to the reception at the famous Doonbeg Golf Resort. Here's some of our favourites from the day...
Sarah & Niall, Finnstown House, Kildare, Ireland
We had the great pleasure of photographing Sarah and Niall's wedding earlier this month in the beautiful surroundings of Finnstown House in Lucan, Kildare. They were both very relaxed on the day and allowed us to capture some great shots of them, even if some of our requests sounded a bit bizarre. Two that stand out in my mind are bringing them down into a celler underneath the main house, and getting them climbing up an external fire exit, just as the heavens opened! all in all, the weather was fantastic when it needed to be, the guests were great craic, and they are going to have a beautiful wedding album to remember it all by!
Keith & Jenny
Emma & Naoise, Carton House, Maynooth, Ireland
What a wickedly fun day! Emma and Naoise decided on a winter themed wedding in the beautiful surroundings of Carton House, Maynooth, Co. Kildare. Mother Nature stayed true to her word and we woke up to a countryside covered by a sheet of frost.
We've known both of them for a long time now and regard them as great friends, so we knew it was going to be a lot of fun on the day. Only difficulty we had was keeping our cameras out of Naoise's hands (He's also a professional photographer).
Thanks for letting us share in your big day….we had a fantastic time! Here's some of our favourite moments!
Katie & Niall, Lough Rynn, Ireland
It was a case of the best of Ireland meets the best of America when Katie and Niall decided to get married this August in the beautiful Lough Rynn, in Leitrim, Ireland. The number of the bridal party was more akin to a wedding in Chicago than a wedding in Mohill, and the sunshine only made everyone's smiles even brighter. The stunning grounds at Lough Rynn played host to an outside champagne reception, and the couple portraits were a mini adventure by Golf cart through the winding paths in the woods and gardens behind. These images are only a fraction of what was captured on the day, but are some of our favorites.
