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…
