Irish Wedding Blessing for Christina and Brent at Magical Coolcarrigan in County Kildare

Meet Brent and Christina, a beautiful couple from Los Angeles who recently travelled to Ireland for an Irish Wedding Blessing (they were married in California earlier in the year). Brent's father is from Ireland originally and they brought him back to celebrate with them at the magical Coolcarrigan in County Kildare. 
Coolcarrigan is a country house that has been in the same family for 6 generations. There is a magical chapel on the grounds decorated in the historic Celtic Revival style of the late 19th century. Ireland's first president, Douglas Hyde was a family friend, and it is he who recommended the script in the beautiful chapel. I've photographed a wedding before here and I can say the chapel is simply the most beautiful place to have a wedding or can hear the wind blowing in the trees and the birds chirping during the service! 
Christina and Brent were fantastic models for getting their heirloom film photographs done. We got many in the gardens with colourful flowers still in bloom in mid-September. 

Thanks you so much to Christina and Brent for having me there to photograph your beautiful wedding blessing here in Ireland! We hope you will return someday and all the best for your future!
