Sarah and Ronan at Cloughjordan House

This was honestly one of the most fun weddings I’ve been at in a long time. I had met Sarah and Ronan here at home one afternoon about a year or so ago. We sat for a whole afternoon and over plenty of coffee and too many biscuits we laughed and chatted like we were old mates. I knew right there and then that these guys were going to be a lot of fun to be around on their day.
As I arrived that morning at the stunning Cloughjordan House – somewhere I’d never shot before – Ronan came outside to greet me. He then took me on a guided tour and introduced me to everyone who he thought I may need to know. It was all so relaxed and informal and just downright lovely if I’m honest. The weather was looking fairly dreadful and the reports weren’t very positive for the hours ahead however this did nothing at all to wipe the smiles of either Ronan or Sarah. They honestly have to be the most positive and chilled out couple I’ve ever photographed.
Everything took place onsite – the ceremony was in the 17th century ballroom which oozes character and the dinner was in the marquee with long banquet tables.  Just beautiful. In the afternoon we held out for as long as we could in the hope that the rain would ease off but that wasn’t for happening – in a way it was good that it didn’t because we found loads of cool and interesting places to shoot and got to use parts of Cloughjordan House that are probably otherwise forgotten about. Sometimes having no sun makes you think that little bit more creatively and Sarah and Ronan were up for anything I threw at them. How many bries do you know would go into a cow shed? In fact, how many brides do you know would come up with the idea of going into the cow shed?!
Needless to say – this was one brilliant day and I honestly couldn’t get enough of it. This post could easily be twice as long (you know me) but I hope that I’ve left you all with every indication what a great day this was. Sarah and Ronan – you guys rock and thanks so much for having me!
