Venue - Talbot Hotel Carlow
Wedding Photography - Jason Mac Cormac
Following months of planning the big day finally arrived for Paula and Shane. We had met a few times in the run up to the wedding discussing the finer details of the wedding plan.
I was to meet Paula at midday and start with bride's preparations followed by pictures of Shane and his groomsmen, then back to the bride and bridesmaids for some portraits. In the moments between capture some detail images of the little gems be it the flowers the perfect shoes that Paula had chosen, the special surprises and really special picture frame guest book that Shane had organised.
Come 3 o'clock the wedding ceremony would begin and it was my job to document the ceremony, and get some nice candid moments along the way, such as the extra special touch Shane handing a lovely rose to his bride-to-be, a laugh, a smile, a loving look.
Following the ceremony the plan was to go to nearby Delta Sensory gardens to take some portrait and group images of the bride and groom with their immediate wedding party. In the two days before the wedding unusual weather creeped in from the West and weather warnings of hurricane winds and thundery downpours were expected. As the wedding day began it was bright but cloudy with a hint of rain and as the day carried on sure enough it poured.
Nothing could dampen the spirits of this special day, I quickly scouted around for a location to take the group shots indoors whilst Paula and Shane took a limo sightseeing tour of Carlow. Paula and Shane were in flying form, we had 10-15 mins before dinner was due to get the group pictures, a fun challenge when everyone is off chatting, but we did it.
I was expecting this to be a busy on the feet kind of day but I had such a good time I continued shooting late into the night and got pictures of the speeches and the dance along with the special guests, an Irish dancing troupe, who gave us a great display of Riverdance.
Absolutely wonderful couple. Congrats Paula and Shane!!!
