Sharon and Robbie’s wedding in Nenagh

I have photographed Sharon and Robbie on a rainy day in summer for their engagement shoot near Dromineer, Nenagh. Now they were to get married in Nenagh and to celebrate their wedding day in the County Arms Hotel in Birr, Co. Offaly. Here are just a few of my favourite photographs of their wedding in Nenagh…

The big day began for me at their house near Ballymackey. After a late night the lads brought rolls and sausages in for their breaky, and lots of tea, coffee and Lucozade to get fit for a looong day! :)

Arriving at Sharon’s home place in Dromineer, near Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, the wedding preparations were full on. Sharon was extremely organised and had every little detail well laid out for me to take photographs of: her amazing bridal shoes, the bridal bouquet and mum and dad’s boutonnieres, that were brought early in the morning from Nenagh Florist Elizabeth Rose, little gifts by her friend, bridal jewellery and her perfume. It really made my start easy and we could take lots and lots of photographs…

I love wedding images in black and white! They really show of the light  and give everything a somewhat moody character. Sharon’s sister is helping her into her lovely wedding dress, which I really liked: plain and simple with a lot of charm. Sharon was just an amazing looking bride all day!

Sharon’s flowers, by Elizabeth Rose, were gorgeous. I love the photograph of the brides maids cheering as the lovely vintage wedding car turns around into the garden…

I love this picture of Sharon and her dad arriving in front of the church where you can see through the window the reflection of the church gate of St. Mary’s Church of Ireland in Nenagh. Bride and dad walking towards the church where the bridesmaids were waiting and welcoming them. A few last fixes and the bride is ready to walk down the isle…

St. Mary’s Church of Ireland is really lovely and charming. Small and a little dark, but I thought that atmosphere really made a difference and gave the wedding almost a cozy and country side feel. The ceremony was held by Sharon’s uncle who held a lovely wedding sermon and made the event very personal.

After the wedding ceremony we stayed on in the church for some more photography with Sharon and Robby who had booked this amazingly elegant black vintage wedding car. I also really like the silhouette shot of bride and groom in the church entrance as it really gives the couple a nice frame and some interesting back light.

After their ceremony we went straight off to Ashley Park House for some romantic shots in front of the house and near the lake. Since the wedding reception was in the County Arms Hotel in Birr, the quick stop in Ashley Park gave us a moment to take a breath and relax whilst getting some super romantic wedding photography of Sharon and Robby.

It was a very blustery day and we could hardly take wedding photography in Ashley Park House as the wind was so strong coming across the lake. However, with the moody sky and the intense colours we got some really wonderful images that respond to the images of an Irish country house wedding in autumn. Here just a few of them…

After their wedding in Nenagh and Ashley Park House Robby and Sharon headed over to Birr County Arms Hotel in Co. Offaly, where they held a buzzing reception. I stayed with them until the first dances and really enjoyed taking casual photographs of their friends and families enjoying themselves. Thanks so much for a great day!!
