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. It was lashing rain outside so we were glad to be inside such a beautiful setting. Luck was on our side as the rain began to calm down as we were on route to the church and as the beautiful bride stepped out of the wedding car it stopped as if on queue! Once the ceremony had taken place the couple left the church and the sun had begun to shine making a perfect end to what was a beautiful service.
We then went to the charming riverside village of Foulksmills to shoot some romantic pictures of the newly weds. This was yet another dream location for a Wexford photographer with a picturesque courtyard of an 18th-century watermill. I photographed the couple in the doorway to the mill where they embraced in each other’s arms.
Margot and Adrian were a joy to work with as it was easy and instant to build a trusting relationship. They wanted a fly on the wall style series of photographs that captured their day so I focused on the interactions between them to show their real emotions throughout the day. I also tried to get a sense of the overall ambience of their wedding day by looking for details and spontaneous reactions from guests. It was also great fun capturing images of their gorgeous son Naoise with his smile that almost stole the day.
This successful shoot is thanks to a great team so I’d like to thank Margot and Adrian and wish them all the happiness for their future, Kate and her staff at Horetown House for their fantastic hospitality and to all the guests who made this a Wexford photographer dream to photograph, a truly memorable occasion.
