Ladies & Gents, 

I give you Danielle and Shane. Sadly, it was due to the passing of Danielle & Shane's original photographer that they were referred to me. I definitely wanted to reassure them they were in good hands and that I would be faithful to theirs and the original photographer's vision. I met up with Shane and Danielle several times throughout the year, usually over tea or cakes. We got to know each other very well and had built up quite a rapport by the time the big day came around. 

Showing up the morning of I was told to help myself to breakfast, tea and champagne. I had to pass on the latter due to driving duties, plus I didn't want to have to explain why the photos were out of focus. 

We had a remarkable fun filled crazy morning and then headed to the Lourdes Church in Drogheda. After the words had been spoken, we all drove out to the famous town of Slane, Co. Meath, where the reception took place in the cost Cunningham Arms Hotel. After getting rained on during the family photos, we retreated under a big tree to finish the photos.. Luckily we got a break in the clouds and I grabbed the happy couple and ran across the road to the gardens for 15/20 mins and grabbed some nice shots of just the happy couple! It was a nice break away after dinner and it gave the couple some time to be alone together and relish their wedding day, with me hiding in the bushes taking photos, the professional 'peeping tom' that I am. 

They couple were entertained by an incredible brass band, "Electric Avenue" who rocked the socks off the couple and even serenaded them on the dance floor with some saxophone. It was Epic! I could go on, but the photos speak for the day itself.

 

Enjoy!
