Winter Wedding at Tankardstown House

First wedding of 2014 was in february and what a day.  Carole & Bryan were married in Rathfeigh and then onto the wonderful Tankardstown House just outside Slane for the reception.  After all the storms we were absolutely blessed to have such a perfect weather on the day.  The house and grounds of Tankardstown were looking particularly amazing with the soft winter sunlight.  Carole and Bryan really wanted a documentary approach to their wedding photographs.  As well as that Carole really loves details so loads of detail shots were on the agenda.

Carole stayed at Tankardstown the night before so I met up with her and the girls for the bridal preparations in the Master Suite early that morning.  Here the fantastic Alison McGovern and Joanne Kelly were doing the make-up and hair.

Onwards to the quaint Rathfeigh church for the ceremony and back to Tankardstown.  We immediately launched into a photo-shoot for Carole & Bryan which unfortunately got cut short by a break in the weather.  But hey – that’s Irish weddings for ya…!  We finished with a few shots in the house before unleashing the bride and groom on their guests.

I had great fun with these guys.  They were so comfortable together and I bonded with them pretty fast which allowed me to get some lovely images despite a short photo-shoot.  The weather then cleared up again which allowed us to get some quick family photos outside before everybody headed inside for dinner.

All in all a perfect day.
