What can I say about this wedding that this mammoth blog post won’t already say? Well, first of all – it’s a special one for me as Dee and I got married in Ballyvolane House just 3 months before. As I drove down the beautiful driveway it all came rushing back to me and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel a tinge of emotion as I set my eyes on the wonderful Ballyvolane House again. This day though was all about Ruairi and Eimear. Two utterly gorgeous people inside and out. You can see the effect that these two have on others. They put smiles on your face and make you feel warm inside. The day I arrived I remember how they both came to meet me upstairs and ALL they wanted to hear about was my wedding day and how I was and how Dee was. For 15 minutes we chatted upstairs in the room before I’d even taken a single shot.
Eimear and Ruairi had officially tied the knot the day before in an intimate ceremony in Gougane Barra so today they were happy to see each other all morning but of course were still up for the big reveal. They’d be walking each other down the aisle so we decided to do the first look upstairs as the weather all morning wasn’t playing ball (boy did that change for the better!). Watching them as they set eyes on each other was something special and it’s day like this that I have to remember what a amazing job I have, to get to witness moments like that in the flesh.
So – I’ll let you get to this because honestly – when I was trying to choose what to include in this blog I was probably a little heavy handed but that is because I know the little stories and meanings behind some of these shots as will the others who were there on this amazing day.
On a side note – I had my awesome nephew Connor with me on this day and he took some unreal shots – so when he has them up on his blog I will update this post and point you in his direction. Massive thanks again to Eimear and Ruairi and all at Ballyvolane House for an incredible day (again!).
And yes… that is an AT-AT and Star Wars characters being used at the cake table – what of it?
