etsy ireland photoshoot featured in the new spring issue of Confetti magazine!

On a very unseasonably warm early April day last year, I did my first styled shoot with the help of Etsy Ireland sellers, Pearl & Godiva, Rosa-O Makeup, Best Day Productions, and Burtown House where the beautiful gardens and house can be hired. The original blog post here with an utterly charming video by the very talented Rodolphe of Best Day Productions. I was really delighted that Irish wedding magazine Confetti wanted to feature it for their Spring issue. I hope some of the very talented Etsy artists who contributed to this shoot will get more people coming to their virtual shops by the exposure in Confetti. Thanks again to all!

maire-therese and ken's elegant black-tie christmas wedding at finnstown house

When Maire-Therese first inquired about photographing her wedding, I was so excited because I remembered her being the beautiful bridesmaid at her cousin Keara's wedding I photographed a while ago. As she began to tell me more about the wedding, I was even more excited! Her and Ken's wedding would be unique because there wouldn't be a bouquet, there would be a First Look (where the bride and groom see each other before the wedding...PERFECT for winter weddings), they were walking down the aisle together at the church, and the look would be black tie and vintage. I love this girl! And I loved their wedding! So unique and they did it the way they wanted, which is what every couple in Ireland should do. Hope you enjoy this vintage wedding at the eccentric Finnstown House near Dublin (home to two friendly peacocks!) as much as I did. And congratulations to Maire-Therese and Ken!
