Gemma & Stephen at Kilshane House
It must have been one of the most romantic and intimate wedding days a couple could imagine. Located within a magnificant estate including its very own lake, a conservatory and an Orangerie. Kilshane House couldn’t have been a better place for Gemma and Stephen to celebrate their love. The lake itself is an ongoing project for Kilshane House and the addition of fish is planned for next year.
We’ve had great fun shooting on the day and I managed to stay dry and not fall into the lake while taking our favourite picture (below). Gemma was the first one to kick off her shoes and dipping her feet in the water when Stephen finally followed suit!
As you probably by now know we’re hopeless romantics and probably one reason we got in to the wedding business in the first place. We’ve recently had the pleasure of shooting the gorgeous couple Zoe and Rob at the Clontarf Castle a 12th century castle with an impressive classic yet stylish interior set in the idyllic seaside village of Clontarf. One of the most romantic castles within the city of Dublin surrounded by leafy grounds with pretty gardens it is a magical setting for a wedding day in Dublin.
Zoe and Rob’s story really does sound like a fairytale. They met each other all the way across the pond in Australia during a trip into the rainforest. After separating for a few weeks they ended up spending 11 days together before they decided to move back to Ireland to live together. And the rest is history.
Rob’s proposal was as romantic as any bride-to-be could wish for. On Christmas morning Zoe woke up to find the room had been lit with candles and Rob dressed in his best suit, down on one knee holding a diamond ring. Of course she said yes!
