Getting Married in Ireland – Civil Weddings vs.Traditional Weddings

Getting married in Ireland these days has changed dramatically, especially looking back over the last 2 years or so. Trends are definitely changing, taking us away from the more traditional weddings format. In my opinion, this is due in no small part to the introduction of civil weddings in Ireland. This has given rise to a totally new creativity not only in wedding photography but also in how weddings are styled and themed.

Hints and Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Photographer

As a wedding photographer, I shoot lots of weddings every year, mainly in Waterford, Wexford, and Kilkenny, but I’ve also shot in the UK and was last year commissioned to shoot a wedding in Tuscany, Italy. Needless to say, every wedding I shoot has a very different brief and subsequently, the weddings have a varied and diverse range of vibes. It is therefore imperative that each album I create can mirror and represent the unique memories of each special day with a photographic style that embraces the ambiance of the location and personality of the guests. That is not always an easy and straightforward task.

Wedding Photographer Kilkenny

Joy and Keith’s wedding photography started in Joys parents house in Kilkenny city where her family had all gathered together to mix the preparations with celebrations.  Her sister was back from Australia, her bridesmaids and best friends were having their hair and makeup done and her Dad had the traditional wedding breakfast on, the traditional Irish fry. The house was a buzz that morning with all hands on board helping out, Mum was helping put the flowers together with Joys sister, Joy and her bridesmaid’s hair was being done by Danielle, a work colleague from Envy hair salon where Joy works. Joys makeup was done by Sherise of Contour by Sherise, a very talented makeup artist based in the southeast of Ireland. As usual, I blended into the background and captured the morning as the morning unfolded including the joy, smiles, tears and all those other happy moments and emotions that make a wedding morning. Kilkenny is such a compact city and Joys parents house was just around the corner from Rothe House where Joy & Keith were getting married that day so instead of travelling the traditional way in a wedding car Joy and her Dad walked the 5 […]

Wedding Photographer Wexford

As a wedding photographer working in Ireland and mainly covering the counties of Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, and Tipperary, I have the pleasure of enjoying many beautiful wedding and hearing the back story.  Here is just one. Mairead and Chris, both from London decided to have their wedding in Wexford. Their heritage and ties to Ireland are so strong that Mairead and her siblings have Irish names and even run their own Irish dance studio in London. Both Mairead and Chris are of Irish heritage and have been coming to Ireland since they were kids, visiting family every summer in Wexford and spending those days on the local beaches and playing in the vast amount of fields. The Church that Mairead and Chris choose to get married in was St Michael’s Church, a stunning stone church with beautiful stained glass windows and a lovely courtyard leading up to this beautiful Roman Catholic Church, situated in the centre of Gorey town in Wexford.

They arrived in style with 220 of their guests from London and […]

Horetown House Wedding by Wexford photographer Keith of Infokus

Horetown House Wedding by Wexford photographer Keith of Infokus June 2011 saw the wonderful wedding of Margot and Adrian at Wexfords delightful Horetown House. It really is a spectacular venue to hold a wedding and a superb opportunity for any Wexford photographer. This traditional 1692 Palladian building features a grand reception hall and is located amidst acres of farmland in the heart of Wexford rolling countryside. I had shot a fashion shoot here some months ago and was delighted when Kate the manager recommended me to this lovely couple. It really was a day to remember! The shoot began in the morning in the grand interior of Horetown House.
