Brace yourself, you are about to revel in THE wedding of the year! Seriously, this was one of the most beautifully curated, stylish, luxurious yet laidback celebrations I have ever had the pleasure of capturing. Being previously postponed due to Covid, this time nothing was going to come between Sarah & Niall and hosting the perfect humanist outside wedding. Thankfully, with the diligent touch of Niall’s mother, Carol, who planned the event for two years – the day itself turned out to be the DREAM DAY.
The magnificent event happened at the Dunmore House Hotel, as Niall is the son of the owner. He was so happy that he finally got to marry his long term girlfriend Sarah! Naturally, his mother after having planned everything for so long, ensured that their story unfolded flawlessly. Even though it was a black-tie wedding, tailored by the best suppliers, it had an easy-going no-stress vibe about it. Not only the getting ready moments, but also the first look between Sarah and Niall, and their relaxed “date” before the ceremony – everything evoked a different and unique note. In short, it was completely aligned with their personalities.
While I was shooting their bridal portraits, the guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony drinks reception. After a while, the couple met them and they all walked down to the newly built outside ceremony area of the Dunmore House. With spectacular sea views and sublimely designed florals, Sarah and Niall tied the knot with a humanist outside wedding ceremony. Even though it was touch and go with the weather, everything ended perfectly!
The chic couple celebrated their dream day with a luxurious reception at the hotel, in the presence of their favourite people. They also had friends and family who flew in from 8 countries to attend this iconic wedding. It was especially magical when we went outside to shoot during golden hour. With a Vogue-inspired session, I evoked their fashionable yet classy essence, resulting in the most beautiful photos!
I hope you will enjoy this humanist outside wedding as much as I did while portraying it. If you wish to translate your own dreams into wedding photography, please get in contact with me. I would love to help you realise your vision.
