Waterford Castle that I was invited to photograph very recently. It's most definitely the smallest ceremony I have photographed (bride, groom, and their four children), but it's also the one with the most details. I've put together some inspiration boards from the evening and hopefully another publication or blog will share the rest with you.
Pam and Rick chose to have their ceremony at Waterford Castle because they fell in love with pictures of the drawing room fireplace. It is truly a magnificent space, and if your wedding is large enough, you can get married in this room. Pam and Rick had their ceremony outside in front of the castle, with only their four children in attendance. They all traveled to Ireland from Denver, Colorado and stayed the rest of the week in the country sightseeing by car.
Pam and the girls carried elegant white bouquets made by Flowers by Lucy in Waterford. They all bought their JS Boutique dresses from Nordstrom in the States. The gorgeous silver shoes were BP. Platinum from Nordstrom. I love that they all wore the same shoes and went shopping together! And the girls all wore beautiful glass jewelery handmade by Pam Stinson of The Goddess Within Jewelery on Etsy. Last, but not least, the men wore suits by Jones of New York at Men's Wearhouse.
Tom Colton, a minister of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland, performed their ceremony which was personalised towards the couple. Part of ceremony included a sand ceremony which I've never seen performed in Ireland before. It was very sweet!
We took lots of pictures in a beautiful soft evening light with no rain. And later, everyone sat down for dinner in the most exquisite conservatory that they had for their exclusive use. Hmmm, I never did find out if they ordered the pig's head on the menu!
All the best to the Sheehan's of Denver and may you have many happy years together!
