Wedding Photographs at Dunmore House Hotel

Please allow a few moments for the Wedding Photographs at Dunmore House Hotel to load

Full disclosure, Dunmore House Hotel, just outside Clonakilty Town, is the nearest hotel to where I live, but despite any local bias, I can say with total honesty that it is a fantastic venue for indoor and outdoor wedding celebrations and civil ceremonies.

From a photographers point of view, Dunmore House Hotel ticks all the boxes. It is a four star family run hotel with a great reputation for friendliness and service and it has received many awards, including the title of Wedding Venue Of The Year.

But for me, what makes Dunmore House such a great wedding venue is the position of the hotel overlooking the ocean and the access to lots of other great photographic locations within a 10 minute drive. 

Firstly, you have a great selection of Churches to choose from for your wedding ceremony. Clonakilty parish church is huge and ornate, almost like a cathedral, and it has beautiful gold mosaic on the altar. Darrara church is a little further away, just outside the village of Ring. Darrara is the perfect size for 150 – 250 guests and has a red altar which adds a dramatic effect to the ceremony. On the other side of Clonakilty, the churches of  Ardfield and Rathbarry, similar in size to Darrara and nearer the beaches and forestry of the area.

Clonakilty town itself is a great wedding photography location, with traditional pubs, quaint shop fronts, an interesting Georgian square, a tiny converted church and multi coloured doors. If the weather is bad, I always bring my wedding parties to Clonakilty Town photographs

Duneen Strand, less than 5 minutes drive from Dunmore House, is another great location. There is something about the way the beach faces that gives it lots of shelter from the wind and lots of sunshine. It isn’t such a popular beach with tourists so even in the height of summer, you can get plenty of wide open space.

There is also a tiny headland overlooking the ocean directly opposite Dunmore House. It can be a bit of a effort to get down to it in summer as the path can get overgrown, but it can really be worth it if you get a dramatic sky as a background.

Have a look through the Dunmore House Clonakilty Wedding Photos below to get an idea of what I am talking about.

Fernhill House Hotel Wedding Photographs

Please allow a moment for the Fernhill House Hotel Wedding Photographs to load

Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens in Clonakilty is a very special, unique and multi-award winning wedding venue. It is one of my all-time favourite’s and I have photographed well over 50 weddings there.

Here is a selection of Fernhill House Hotel Wedding Photographs I shot between 2019 and 2022.

Fernhill House Hotel is run by the 4th generation of the O’Neill family and is recognized in the industry as one of the most popular and successful indoor and outdoor wedding venues in Cork.

Over the past 10 years, they have focused on expanding their wedding business by creating a series of beautiful gardens in what used to be a pitch and putt course on their grounds.

The gardens feature a unique civil wedding ceremony area for outdoor weddings, and a huge permanent marquee for humanist and spiritualist weddings when the weather won’t allow an outdoor ceremony. 

If you have a church wedding and arrive at the hotel afterwards, or if you have your ceremony at the hotel, your drinks reception is held in the marquee, which allows your guests to mingle and explore the gardens with a drink in their hand.

The gardens are designed to have plenty of locations for fabulous wedding photographs. From the formal family portraits to the wedding party shots and the bride and groom’s location shoot, there are lots of options for every season. 

There is also space and fantastic light to allow for great candid and reportage shots.

The dining room is in the main hotel building, and Michael Sr. loves to ferry the guests up and down in his super sized golf buggy.

Sometimes brides like to get ready at the hotel on the morning of their wedding, especially if they are having their wedding ceremony on the grounds. 

The Woodfield Room in the main hotel is perfect and private for a bride and her bridesmaids to have their hair and makeup done and get ready for the day.

A unique feature of weddings at Fernhill House Hotel, and the icing on the cake for me, is the potential for a night shoot in the gardens after the speeches and dinner are over. 

The garden structures, like the bridge, the summer house and the moon gates make fantastic backdrops for sparkler shoots and romantic backlight photographs.

So, if you are looking for a venue that offers every option available to make your wedding day perfect, Fernhill House Hotel is well worth a visit.

Vienna Woods Fota House Gardens Wedding Photographs

Please allow a moment for the Vienna Woods Fota House Gardens Wedding Photographs to load.

Lisa and Anthony were married at the end of March in the Holy Rosary Church in Midleton. A few weeks before their wedding we met in Youghal to have our planning meeting and we did a quick engagement photoshoot on the beach. It is a great way to practice for the wedding day shoot and I made a print of the photograph they chose for their guests to sign at their reception.

Lisa had 4 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls, and the preparations were at Lisa’s parents house, about 10 minutes drive from the church. We had worked out a tight schedule to get everybody ready for photography in the morning but the hair dresser and make up artist were fantastic and everything ran like clockwork. I left Lisa’s house in good time to meet Anthony and his mother and the four groomsmen at the church for photographs before the ceremony.

The church in Midleton is beautiful, a perfect setting for a wedding and the ceremony was conducted with style and humour by Fr. Jim Kileen. After the mass and the greeting line we did a group photo on the steps of the church and then went on to our location in the gardens of Fota house. We didn’t have a huge amount of time for the location shots as we wanted to get back to Vienna Woods and the guests as quickly as possible, so we stopped at the scenic bridge on the driveway to Fota House with Lisa and Anthony and the wedding party.

The light at the location was perfect!! Diffused sunshine filtered through the treetops, what more could a photographer ask for? We spent no more than 20 minutes there and then headed on to Vienna Woods where the families and guests were waiting for us. We had lots of time to take photographs of Lisa and Anthony with their friends and relations and I got to try some of my reportage photographer moves while the wedding party were waiting to be announced into the function room for dinner.

I sent Lisa and Anthony a sneak peek selection of around 120 photographs 2 days after their wedding, here are some of my favourites from their day…

Fernhill House Cork Spring Wedding Photographs

Please allow a moment for the Fernhill House Cork Spring Wedding Photographs to load.

Fiona and Kieran were married in Belgooley Church near Kinsale in West Cork. We were really worried about the weather prior to the day as the Mini Beast From The East had been predicted but on the day we had lovely warm sunshine right through the afternoon.

There was a GAA theme to the wedding with a guard of honour from Kieran’s hurling team at the church. After the ceremony we took a quick stop for photographs at the railway bridge near Fiona’s house and then went on to Clonakilty town.

Clonakilty is a fantastic town for photography, with lots of pubs and shopfronts that can be used as backdrops. This time we were in a bit of a rush to get up to Fernhill House and Gardens so we took our photographs at An Teach Beag with the wedding party and then in Spillers Lane with Fiona and Kieran.

We arrived at Fernhill House at 4.30 (bang on schedule!) and were greeted by Neil O’Neill and his mother Teresa. We took a tour of the fantastic function room and did some photographs with their wedding cake before getting onto the golf cart on steroids and driving down to the marquee in the gardens for the drinks reception.

We had planned to take our formal family photographs inside the marquee but as the weather was so good we were able to do the in the gardens and then we had lots of casual photographs with their family and friends. At around 5.30, the bell for dinner was rung and as the guests were making their way up to the hotel we did some nice photographs in the gardens with the wedding party and with Fiona and Kieran to finish off the day.

 I sent Fiona and Kieran a sneak peek of around 120 photographs around 36 hours after their wedding so that they could share them with their families and friends before they went on honeymoon, here is what Fiona texted me when she saw her photos…

Hi Dermot. Thanks so much… They look absolutely amazing. The lighting and mix of them all is stunning. You did a fantastic job, couldn’t ask for more!!

Romantic February West Cork Wedding Photographs

Please allow a moment for the Romantic February West Cork Wedding Photographs to load.

Irene and Chris had their early springtime wedding in the beautiful St. Fachtna’s Church in Rosscarbery. The weather was chilly and showery but we managed to avoid the rain throughout the day.

Chris brought a lot of his Scottish heritage and culture to the wedding. There were thistles in the bouquets, a bagpiper at the church and to lead them into dinner. There was a beautiful Thistle and Shamrock entwined pin in Chris’s kilt and a huge amount of men in kilts attending the celebration. 

After the ceremony we went down the Pier Road in Rosscarbery for photographs with the wedding party. Irene had spent a lot of her childhood summers playing down along this road so this location had relevance and significance for Irene and her sisters.

After the Pier Road photos, we let the bridesmaids and groomsmen head on to the hotel and Irene, Chris and I went to a stunningly romantic location in Castlefreke Woods that I had found on a recce earlier that morning. The trees along the pathway formed a arch that enclosed us and created a tunnel of green and dappled light. I knew that this would be a perfect spot for some timeless  backlit portraits that would compliment Irene’s stunning dress and Chris’s traditional Scottish outfit.

I like to work fast so that my photographs appear casual and that the bride and groom don’t get bored and fed up with too much delay, so we were back in the car in about 10 minutes and on our way to the drink reception in Fernhill House Hotel in Clonakilty.

We arrived at Fernhill at about 4.30 which allowed a good hour for the drinks reception and the formal family photographs. At around 6pm, the sound of the bagpipes were heard echoing around the corridors of the hotel as Irene and Chris followed their piper through the dining room and on to the top table.

I had a sneak peek selection of 100 photographs ready to send to Irene and Chris by lunchtime on the day after the wedding, here is what Irene txted me in reply…

Dermot, I just don’t think there are words to thank you enough for doing such a wonderful job on Friday. You kept the whole ship running so smoothly and the magnificent photos were worth the bracing cold!! I absolutely love the photos and cannot wait to see the rest. Thanks a million, Irene and Chris!

Maryborough Hotel Cork Weddings

Maryborough Hotel Cork Weddings

The Maryborough Hotel and Spa in Douglas is a fantastic indoor and outdoor wedding venue on the edge of Cork city. The original house dates back to 1786, when it was the home of the Newenham’s, a family of Cork merchants. There has been a few updates and improvements since those days and now it is one busiest business and wedding hotels in the city.

Experienced Cork Wedding Photographer

I have been the photographer for many Cork weddings here over the years and I always manage to find something different and new, depending on the time of year or the type of ceremony the couple are having. It has the old world elegance of the amazing interior staircase and the beautiful bridal suite plus the wow factor of the wisteria filled orangery.

On days when the rain has prevented us from doing the formal family photographs outside, we have been able to use a room at the front of the building with Georgian floor to ceiling windows and stunning drapes. The stone steps leading to the front doors of the hotel make a great background for creative wedding photography, especially after dark, when the hotel is all lit up inside.

Cork City Wedding Ceremony Photography

If you are having your wedding ceremony anywhere in the city, like The Honan Chapel in UCC or The North Cathedral, or in Douglas, Glanmire or Glounthaune, or even Monkstown or Passage West, The Maryborough Hotel and Spa is a short spin away. It allows you to have your wedding ceremony, time for a stop with your wedding party for photographs, and still arrive in plenty of time for champagne and a mingle with your wedding guests.

Humanist Wedding Ceremony Photographs

Alternatively, you can have a civil marriage or a humanist wedding ceremony at the hotel. The orangery wedding venue is a beautiful light filled room for your ceremony. You can do all your bridal preparations in the enormous bridal suite upstairs and hold your drinks reception on the lawn outside. The grounds around the hotel are perfect for wedding party and bride and groom photos.

If you are looking for a modern city hotel with lashings of old world charm to provide you with a wedding album full of photographs to treasure, take a look at The Maryborough.

North Cathedral Cork Christmas Wedding Photographs

Maria and Alan were married in the North Cathedral in Cork and had their wedding reception at Fernhill House Hotel in Clonakilty. Even though it was the 1st of December, we had fantastic weather. Bright and chilly but dry and not windy, perfect for wedding photography as long as the bride and bridesmaids had something to keep their shoulders warm, which they did!

Top tip for photographers and wedding guests, get to the North Cathedral early, parking can be difficult there, especially if the bridesmaids are arriving in a stretch limo.

We managed to beat the Cork city traffic and get to Fernhill House in Clonakilty by 4.30, which left lots of time for mingling with guests before the dinner bell was rung. We took 10 minutes in the gardens before dinner to get some nighttime shots, and then it was straight into the function room for speeches, dinner and dancing. What a brilliant day!!
