Siobhan & Oliver, 2017

Sometimes you meet a couple and you just feel right at ease with them, Siobhan and Oliver are such a wonderfully relaxed couple that it was lovely to spend time with them at the K club and chat through their plans for their wedding day. They have a way of interacting with each other that's absolutely charming, and it's obvious they share the same sense of humour by the way the can make each other smile and laugh.

As wedding photographers we always try and not force big cheesy smiles, it's much better to just let people be themselves and let them do what they do best. Couples in love, on their wedding day, don't need any encouragement to be happy. What works best is just some light direction and then standing back and letting things happen naturally.

Days like these begin with the Bride's morning preparations and we like to spend 2 hours wedding photography with Brides, that gives us plenty of time to take everything from details of the dress to hair and make-up, to photos with the Bridesmaids and family; two hours wedding photography in the morning is ideal. If required Mike would go to the Groom, but that wasn't necessary in this case as he only had to meet the Groom and Groomsmen at the church 30 minutes before the ceremony.

We don't have much control over the ceremony, wedding photographers just need to let this part of the day happen and make sur they capture the key moments as best they can. Afterwards, when everyone arrives at the reception, we tend to leave couples alone for 15 minutes or so, if we have the time, so that they can relax with their family and friends. Then it's the best part of the day for wedding photographer, spending time with the couple for their wedding portraits. We like to spend 30 or so minutes with the couple, sometimes a bit longer if they have specific shots in mind or there's more than one location they want to use. It is a busy day for couples, so having two photographers means we can get through things quite efficiently - we have different styles and approaches, so we don't shoot the same thing in the same way.

The K Club is one of those venues that we always look forward to working at. The reception rooms are in their own area, so everything feels private, and they are beautifully styled. From those rooms you can step out onto the terraces overlooking the sweeping lawns and the paved walk from the steps to the river Liffey and on over the bridges to the evening dining room. It really is quite special to see the Bride and Groom enjoying themselves in this setting, and the guests always look forward to the venue.
