Sophie & Will’s Ballnatray Estate, Cork Ireland Wedding
I’ve being thinking of words that best describe Sophie & Will’s Cork Ireland Wedding. But before I do that, I will begin with a massive thank you to Amaris & Chad who made up the #mrts team (I came up with that name). It was an amazing four days of shooting at Ballynatray Estate on the outskirts of Cork and Waterford in Ireland. The guests at the wedding were so surprised that we had never worked together and that the three of us literally lived thousand miles from each other. We just flowed; knew where each other were in terms of taking shots, trusted and knew that each person would capture everything that was special on the day.
But it was more than us three, it was about the Sophie & Will and the rest of the wedding party over those days. From Day 1 to the last day, it was all about making us feel welcome. It was all about sharing in the joyous occasion whilst doing our job, and that is why I always say that it is probably the best job in the world for me. I just love working with couples, families and friends like this.
So what about the wedding day? Well, it started early and ended very late!! But not for one minute did I mind. My day started with the Groom and his Groom’s men at the Wood Cottage, where it was a pleasantly chilled and relaxed time. I would like to say that was the theme of the day, but I would be lying. This was calm before the storm, and in a good way. We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more and just generally had an incredible time. And I am just talking about the wedding day.
I will let the images tell the rest of the story…
Winter might not be coming, but this Bridal Shoot will get you in the mood for the new series of Game of Thrones
Depending on how much you are fan of Game of Thrones you have only have wait a few hours or just under 24 hours before watching the most anticipated new series of this thrilling TV Show. The HBO series has everything that makes it one of the best shows made for TV, in my mind and quite a few others, I believe.
So it was fitting that the very popular wedding blog, “Want That Wedding”, decided to share a Bridal shoot that I was honoured to plan and photographed last summer. I won’t go into too much details as Sonia Collett from Want That Wedding wrote up a great piece, and you can also read what Erin Balfour the styling co-ordinator & joint planner of this Bridal shoot and myself had to say about planning it.
Please click on the link, even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, because you will love it. From the stunning dresses provided by Heart Aflutter Bridal, the amazing creative hair styling from Love Hair by Louise to the breathtaking cake from French made. All this set-up in the spectacular venue of Blackfriars in Gloucester.
