Meagan and I were thrilled to be back in Ireland again, especially to celebrate with Catrin and Len. The beauty of the wedding aside, it was an amazing privilege to be part of this couple’s special day. Len has been a friend for a LONG time and through him we’ve gotten to know the wonderful person Catrin is. They had a fabulous wedding and they deserved it in every way.
We started the day out with the girls getting ready at Catrin and Len’s apartment, which sounds ordinary enough, but this was no ordinary place. I loved the light, the high ceilings and the beautiful Georgian windows, and the outdoors didn’t disappoint either. We made sure there was enough time to photograph Catrin before heading to the ceremony.
The wonderful thing about shooting in a place like Ireland is that everything has so much character. The church was really beautiful and it was the perfect backdrop for Catrin and Len’s heartfelt ceremony. I loved the look on Len’s face as Catrin came up the aisle and Catrin’s huge smile never left her face throughout the entire time. These guys were thrilled to be finally tying the knot. :)
Their reception was at Summerhill House Hotel, just south of Dublin in a beautiful area. We didn’t have a lot of time for different shots but the location didn’t disappoint with some spectacular backdrops for photos. We made sure we left time for a stop in Enniskerry to include the Guinness gate. That was important to Len. ;)
The rest of the evening was such a celebration of the couple. The food was awesome, the speeches were wonderful, and their first dance was pretty great too! Everyone was so happy for them and really enjoyed being a part of their special day.
Catrin and Len, thank-you for asking me to photograph your wedding. Your friendship means so much to both Meagan and I and we loved being their to celebrate with you.
PS – A special shout-out to my Dublin friend and fellow photographer, Niall Scully, for helping me out on the day. Loved working with you!
