My wedding photography moments of 2015


As the year 2015  draws to the close its time to take a break and look back and feel grateful for all the beautiful weddings that I have been a part of  this year.

My job takes me to some of the most beautiful locations in Ireland and allows me to be creative in using our gorgeous landscape as a background to make photos that will be treasured for life.

From the bottom of my heart thank you for all the lovely families who have welcomed me to join them on the most important of family events. It is all of you who make my job so enjoyable and allow me to continue doing a job that I love so much.

Here are just a few of the lovely wedding moments from 2015 and looking forward to more wedding fun in 2016!!

Catherine & Blake 5/sep/16 @The Village at Lyons

I apologise in advance for the many images in this blog, but i really couldn’t leave any of them out!

The Village of Lyons outside Dublin perfectly suited the relaxed, rustic, September wedding of Catherine and Blake. From the break of dawn their wedding day was filled with a beautiful crisp Autumn sunshine.

As Catherine comes from Omagh and Blake from Newcastle, they chose Dublin as their base for friends and family to gather and join them on their wedding day. Catherine prepared for her wedding day in the beautiful Dovetail cottage and arrived at the church in a retro red vintage car.

The exchanged vows in a quaint little chapel outside Maynooth while the September sunshine radiated through the church windows. Following the ceremony Blake got in the driving seat and took Catherine to their wedding party in the open-top vintage car!

The guests were treated to miniature bottle of home-made gin made especially by the mother of the groom as their table favours and Catherine decorated a table with special memories of her late mother and father.

Following the meal, the party was kicked of in style as the room was filled with confetti during their first dance before the ceili kicked off!

The entire day was a feast for the eyes, i will let the images speak for themselves!

Treasure your wedding photography-the wedding album.

When I used to use a film camera when i was young, printing was so much more important that it is now. I would have a roll of 24 photographs and I would be dying to see what I had captured and relive that moment.

Nowadays I think it is too easy to take photos, we take hundreds on our phones and digital cameras and most of them are left there never to see the light of day in physical form.

Our albums tell our family story, they are not just for the people who have printed them but for the generations that follow. To me the Wedding Album is one of the most important books that any family household can possess.


Following your wedding I can design your family keepsake for you and have it printed to the highest of quality in papers and covers to match your taste. This album cam be in your hands within 6 weeks of your wedding day for you to share with others and to relive all the moments.

Aoife & Aaron married in July this year and I couldn’t wait to get working on their album, I chose the mint leather cover to match her wedding colours and the style of her wedding.

This precious book will no doubt take pride of place in the newly-weds home!

Mary Rose & Darragh’s wedding, Kee’s Hotel, Donegal.

On a beautiful April day, Mary-Rose married her sweetheart Darragh in the church beside where the couple have made their own little nest in Loughmacrory. The proud parents of 3 gorgeous kids, the couple centred their wedding day around them and each of the 3 kids played an important part in the wedding day.

In the run up to the wedding their was not an idle moment in the McCullagh household as Mary-Rose hand crafted all the wedding invitations and decorations to personalised their vintage theme.

I wish them both a lifetime of happiness and joy (and maybe a few more kids!-they definitely have the talent for it))x

Emma-Kate & Karol’s Island Wedding #weddingphotography

The forecast said rain but on the morning of their wedding the sun came out over Lusty Beg Island and gave the most beautiful setting for their outdoor ceremony.

Emma-kate’s sister Genevieve of Gen Jon Art transformed the reception room into a vintage wonderland, sprinkled with beautiful Spring colours.

Emma-Kate walked down the aisle to a beautiful cover of Led Zepplin’s ‘Thank You’ by local musicians Lisa Murphy and Cian O’Donnell. They exchanged their wedding vows with their friends and family overlooking the gorgeous Lough Erne from the island and the band played the uplifting Primal Scream ‘Moving On Up’ as they walked up the aisle as husband and wife!
