Tinakilly House Wedding Photographer: Bride & Groom at Church Entrance

Tinakilly House Wedding

Aisling & Alan, 2017

www.tinakilly.ie

Aisling & Alan booked us for their wedding around the same time as their friends, and so before their wedding at Tinakilly they had a chance to see how we work. It's always fun when that kind of thing happens, and because you never know who's going to be at what event I don't think you can do this kind of work unless you really enjoy it - it shows. 

We always enjoy meeting new people, seeing how they work together and chatting to them about whatever it is that comes up in conversation over a cup of coffee; people are endlessly fascinating. Aisling and Alan were so enthusiastic about their wedding day, just walking around Tinakilly House with them after they booked us allowed everyone to get a sense of the day and what might be possible. It's great from a wedding photographer's point of view to see a venue with a couple and walk them through the day, everything becomes quite relaxed and the ideas flow so that on the day we're all open to the possibilities. 

It was lovely to work with these two on their Wedding Day, as wedding photographers we know how each other works and play to each other's strengths. Aisling & Alan just went along with everything we suggested and were so at ease with each other that the time flew. As with all weddings most of what we do as photographers is simply document what's happening, seeing what's happening and choosing our moments. Of course, we set up some photos here and there throughout the day but we tend to give loose directions so that people have room to be themselves and, because there are two of us, we tend to capture far more natural moments. Mostly though, stuff just happens and we play it by ear.

Tinakilly House is a wedding photographer's dream location. The house itself is wonderful with its high ceiling rooms and large windows, a beautiful staircase doesn't go to waste either. Outside there's a mix of lawns and woods, plenty of variety, and nothing is ever very far away from the main house where guests have plenty of space to enjoy the grounds, sitting and chatting outdoors in the afternoon. The wedding reception is held in a vast marquee near to the main house, dressed with chandeliers and luxurious sofas with views out into the woods.
