Rachel & Philip, Wedding, Markree Castle, Co.Sligo
I knew Rachel a long time ago, so it was a pleasure to photographer herself & Philip’s wedding last weekend. Much like Jason & Lindsay’s wedding a couple of months ago (time is flying!) when I had also known Jason years ago, and like Jason & Lindsay, Rachel & Philip also got married in the actual castle so everything was on site!
Weddings are so hard to predict in terms of what emotions might come along, and when. I mean for my own wedding I was super relaxed, and then I seen my wife at the entrance to the ceremony room, and the tears started flowing!! And there were a few tears on the lead up to Rachel & her dad walking up the aisle but the rest of the day was all smiles & happiness around! Even the weather was playing the game, with storm like raining in coming but not until evening, it let us get all the pictures outside the castle. You could spend an entire day wandering around the gardens & buildings of the castle & not use all the opportunities, so for a wedding where I’m looking to get a few quick relaxed portraits, I usually just pick a couple of locations…as long as the light is decent, I’m happy.
Congratulations again Rachel & Philip, and thanks so much for trusting me with documenting & capturing your beautiful wedding day & the bbq the day after…I did say the weather would be fine that day also!!
