Wedding Photography Service
We travel and can provide services all over Ireland. Here is a brief overview of our wedding photography service.
At the Home/Hotel
We start about 2 hours before the Ceremony at the Bride’s home or the hotel room. We want to capture the fun and excitement of everyone getting ready, from hair & makeup to sipping champagne; we like to capture all the little details. We take special care to capture the whole scene from family and friends to the fun and flowers.
In the meantime, John covers the morning preparations at the Groom’s home or hotel. He likes to capture the Boys doing up their ties, putting on their cufflinks before getting to the Church in time to catch lots of social candids of the Groom, family & friends mingling before the Bride arrives.
The second part of the day is where everything speeds up. We photograph guests arriving and the arrival of the Bride at the Church with her Parents and bridesmaids. We like to take some shots of the Bride before she goes down the aisle. This is a good time for the Bride to take a few deep breaths and to relax. The pause here really helps the Bride to collect her thoughts, to keep calm and to take time to really savour the occasion.
We work unobtrusively in the Church using a combination of colour and black and white. After the service, there are the registry shots and then the Newlyweds walking down the aisle. Outside the church, shots are done of everyone, throwing confetti or rose petals, and generally enjoying the scene. At this point we may also photograph some relaxed family groupings and the Big Group Shot.
Back at the reception venue we accompany the Bride & Groom to a beautiful part of the Hotel or Grounds to do some special shots capturing the romance between the newly married couple. It also provides the couple with a valuable moment to themselves, away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. A moment alone together to appreciate what has just happened and to let that ‘just married’ feeling sink in – this usually makes for some wonderful shots. Following this we photograph a number (predetermined by you) of traditional relaxed or more formal groups of immediate family and friends.
Throughout we capture the atmosphere of the party: socialising with the guests and lots of candid/reportage shots of the Bride & Groom with family and friends. Towards the bell for dinner we look into the banqueting room, taking special care to record such details as the place settings, the cake, and flowers. Usually our day ends when the bell rings for dinner, but an optional evening service is also available.
During our consultation process with the Bride & Groom we ensure we have a full understanding of their wishes and expectations. Our aim is to create a timeless and elegant record that our Couple will treasure always.
