It's been a while coming but I've finally got round to my first blog post on my new look website.
No better place to start than the wonderful, stylish, winter wedding of Bronagh & Brian.
Our day began with bridal preparations at Bronagh's home in Dundalk, as I arrived I was greeted with Bronagh's father get into the car with a massive trophy. I soon found out it was the League of Ireland trophy, that Brian (the groom) had just helped win with Dundalk Football Club.
After the lovely church service at the St Joseph's Monastery in Dundalk we headed to Tranquility House in Omeath for images with the newly married couple and their bridal party, before a short journey to The Four Seasons in Carlingford.
We managed to get to the pub around the corner for a quick pint just before we lost the light. The town did look like a street scene from Paris, and it just capped off the chic feel to the whole day.
I hope you enjoy the images, as much as I did capturing this lovely couple's special day.
Please feel free to leave any comments.

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog.
I just wanted to say a little about me and my photography.
Being a self employed photographer, husband to Ursula and a dad to to my two lovelies Emillie (5) and Luke (1) gives me lots of opportunities to capture real moments in my own life; especially with the afore mentioned two lovelies.
I love music all kinds but mainly Rock, this was my first love when I was a kid, all I wanted to be, was in a band (I still do). I actually was in a band all through the 90's but my other passion for photography took over and here we are now.
When I'm not out shooting a corporate PR event or a wedding I tend to focus on capturing the people around me, I’m not one for landscapes although I admire people who are, actually when I am away on holiday I never really look for buildings or landscapes to capture it's usually people or people pictured with a famous landmark or a beautiful landscape.
Sometimes I think I have my kids tortured, I'm always running for the camera when I see them do something or when the light is just to good to pass up. I’m sure when they are older they will love all the images I have captured of them as children or be embarrassed by it; either way it's all good and keeps our memories alive.
Weddings are a big thing for me. I've found over the past year or so I've moved away even more from the "money shots", the image of the cake, the flowers, the shoes etc. although I still do capture these to a point I’m more passionate about reactions, emotions and little moments that might be missed, but should always be remembered.
I aim to blog as much as I can weather it be my latest wedding, PR shoot or personal images of family and friends (maybe the odd landscape we'll see).
