Ross & Joanne // Donegal


When I first met Ross and Joanne I was immediately taken back by how relaxed they both where. Joanne is a very talented people person and I was put at ease from the get-go and very quickly excited about shooting their big day. The World Cup was rudely scheduled on their Wedding Day eve and true to their openness and generosity they put me up for a night and even invited me to join their friends and family to watch the Final which was a much appreciated gesture.

St. Mary’s church idyllically presented by the Malin Head Hills was a breath taking spot. This rich Irish landscape was a wonder to shoot in, a truly Thin place. The detail, the cars, the location, the church, the people and the Bride & Groom made for a very special and satisfying wedding day. Congratulations Ross & Joanne and good luck in your future together.



John & Fiona // Rowallane


Crunch time. The time when decisive action is needed. This is how it felt when shooting John & Fiona’s wedding. Both John & Fiona are incredibly cool and stylish and well travelled and educated people. So being asked to shoot their wedding was obviously a confidence booster but it also struck me with a real sense of ‘you better know what you are doing’. In the planning, both John & Fiona came across really laid back about the whole event and with lots of “Well we might try this or this…” as if they hadn’t organised the wedding of the year, which of course they had. The shear attention to detail in food, venues & timings was top notch. From morning to evening the whole thing ran like clock work and was beautiful. Fiona was getting ready in a beautifully hidden away old style holiday home in Hillsborough (No. 33 Coach House).

Bridalwear was handmade by Lynne Greg. The wedding was to take place outdoors at Rowallane Gardens, with help from guests to recite their vows & promises to each other. Afterwards, they went off to Tubby’s Farm which had been transformed into the most stunning wedding venue by SBD and catered by Root and Branch/The Daily Grind. The flowers were stunning and they had been created by Lorna Brownlee at Scarlet & Crimson. But not only that, they had even organised it so that their friends and family could camp over, kids and all, so they could stay late into the night dancing and singing. Which I am reliably informed they did. The wedding was extremely unique, personal, romantic, fun & community & family orientated, I couldn’t think of doing it better. Congratulations John & Fiona.



Geoff & Maura // Rowellane


It was clear from the start that Maura is an organised woman. She knew off the top of her head most if not all the details of the big day when we first had our meetings. (Which is always a good thing) So when I arrived that morning to start the big day I was surprised to see Maura calmly sitting getting her make up on. I was unaware that there had been a slight problem with the make up the first time round (a potential reaction to something) that had been totally out of Maura’s control. But still quite calmly Maura was relaxed and trying to enjoy the morning. The other girls had been enjoying champagne that Carl (Maura’s Father) had been generously splashing out on anyone who looked dry. Altogether it was a busy and fun house, kids playing, bridesmaids chatting and brides-to-be having their make-up done & re-done.

I can only assume that Maura is normally the time-keeper in her group of friends and potentially her family. It was only after the cars had arrived that anyone went to check their watch and realised that we had rapidly run out of time. So we had to bundle our stuff into the car and make it to the church. But it was all worth it. Maura looked  stunning, the church was filled with joyful family and friends and Geoff was star struck. The whole day was beautiful and relaxed even with the morning problems. Geoff and Maura have a strong friendship group that obviously love them and evening was filled with laughter and one or two epic dance moves.
