Now that summer has definitely arrived I think it’s finally safe for us to look back on last December’s snow with some fondness. So with that I bring you the wedding of Sarah and Colin at Kilronan Castle, Co. Roscommon from last December. As crazy as the drive was to get there, as soon as I drove through the gates and the land stretched out in front of me to reveal the castle in the distance I remember thinking that they couldn’t have picked a better spot on a better day to get married. It was just beautiful. Freezing, but beautiful.
As I arrived, preparations were underway. Makeup for the girls. Fry-ups for the boys. Sarah looked fabulous in her dress which she picked up second hand although you’d swear it was made for her. I loved her vintage style birdcage veil too – super stylish. Colin’s red and white striped tie was pretty swish too and a nice departure from the more traditional wedding tie. Nice to do things your own way rather that following the crowd.
It was a lovely little ceremony just around the corner in St Patrick’s in Ballyfarnon. Light streamed in through the windows and gave everything a wonderful glow. Afterwards I rode with Sarah and Colin in the car to the nearby pub owned by Sarah’s father – it’s always a perfect opportunity to get a few shots of the happy couple alone while still buzzing from the ceremony just moments before.
As soon as we arrived back at the castle it was absolutely freezing out – a lesser bride would have been quite happy to just stay indoors but that didn’t stop Sarah though who was happy to don her lovely white boots and take a stroll with Colin and the rest of the bridal party to get a few portraits done. So patient and willing considering the minus temperature. That was Colin and Sarah all over though – all day they were so easy going and relaxed, making sure that everyone was having a good time and even going as far as offering me a bed for the night to save me a icy drive back to Dublin. Thanks to Colin and Sarah for allowing me to share some of their day with you – it was a joy to be part of.
Here’s what Sarah and Colin had to say.
The minute we loaded up David’s website we knew we had found our wedding photographer. The relaxed vintage style images immediately caught our attention, as we hated stuffy overly-staged photos. On the day David was true professional, and he managed to make what could have been an excruciating part of the proceedings, an absolute joy, and surprisingly quite a lot of fun. We couldn’t be happier with the finished article the photos are really beautiful. The way in which he captured our wedding day really shows how talented he is as a photographer and as an artist.
