Blackwater Castle, Cork, Ireland.

This was my first time at Blackwater castle and what an amazing venue. I want to start by saying how grateful I am that Graham and Chanelle booked me to cover their day. What an absolute privilege to be part of such a wonderful Wedding. They both envisioned an outdoor service on the castle grounds with all their friends and family scattered around them. Weather permitting ’cause in Ireland, you never know! Thankfully the weather Gods were on their side and it turned out to be one of the hottest day’s on record.

Also check out their little bub Marlon. He totally stole the show in his wedding suit and with a smile that would melt the hardest of hearts. The photos of the three of them playing together are some of my favourite ever,

Not only was September 1st the day these two tied the knot it was also the anniversary of Chanelles, Nonna and Nonno’s 67th Wedding anniversary. Know to us as Nana and Granda. Two beautiful souls. I took them off for a wee sneaky photo session and they were so much fun. Still young at heart. Look at their smiles!

Graham and Chanelle were honoured to share their day with these two legends and after their own first dance they gave the floor over to Nonno and Nonna. They danced the old fashioned way to Roy Orbison’s ‘You’re a mystery to me’ and I’m not ashamed to say I had to hide tears in my eyes behind my camera. It was one of the most special experiences I’ve ever witnessed. The energy was amazing and I left that evening on such a high and feeling so thankful to be part of it.
