Wedding of Lisa & Cameron in the lovely Middleton Park House, Mullingar

This was my first time shooting a wedding at Middleton Park House just outside Mullingar.  A beautiful old mansion steeped in history and it made a lovely venue for Lisa and Cameron.  Both the bride and groom live in Australia.  Lisa is Irish and Cameron Australian and so a large contingent travelled from Australia to the Emerald Isle for the wedding.  Lisa got ready at the nearby family home before a civil ceremony surrounded by all their friends and family in Middleton Park House.  Lisa and Cameron wanted a mainly documentary approach to the day as they didn’t fancy many photographs of themselves.  We did however nip outside after the ceremony in between the showers for a quick 15 minutes for some quick personal photos before tackling the obligatory family photos at the bottom a the beautiful main staircase.
After that, a lot of mingling where guests were treated to champagne, canapes and a traditional live Irish music band.  Middleton Park House is one of those rambling venues that even for a very large wedding there are always quiet areas for guests to explore and retreat to.  There is a large area outside also but on the day the weather didn’t really encourage anybody to venture too far…!!
Dinner was followed by hilarious and emotional speeches, a cake cutting and music courtesy of The Moogs.  
Lovely venue and a lovely couple - thanks guys…!!
