A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of returning to Borris House to shoot the wedding of Sallyanne and Laurence. A September wedding, and a day that was more like one at the start of Summer with that light starting to turn toward golden shades of Autumn.
Borris House is a special venue, one that, relatively speaking, hasn’t been on the wedding market for very long. Each time we return we discover something new about the House, with its antique rocking horses and richly adorned ceilings and about it’s grounds and walled gardens with secular trees and meadows. Not to mention the village of Borris itself that stands atop a hill with the old petrol station, the post office and pubs such as M.O Shea’s with their original shop frontages and the signage written in old Irish fonts. All of which offer a picturesque backdrop to the parade of brides, grooms and wedding guests often seen walking from the church at the bottom of the hill and up through the village.
Sallyanne and Laurance chose Borris House private chapel for their civil ceremony as they were all up for making the most of the beautiful surroundings, swiftly moving from an improvised tango choreography amidst the tall grass ending with a passionate cradled-kiss to posing by the old barn, pitch and fork in hand. The result… we hope you enjoy it as much as Paul and Eoin enjoyed shooting it!
