Your venue is the platform for your wedding day. Booking your ceremony and reception is the all-important first chess move in the wedding game! So we’ve done some of the legwork to help you.

As wedding photographers, we are spoilt- we get to travel all around the country visiting fabulous venues from castles and country homes to city hotels or marquees, or even a wedding at home. 
Just when we think we have been to them all, there is always somewhere new we are asked to photograph. We can be both hands-on and gloves off to make your celebration- whether it’s a civil ceremony, religious wedding or partnership blessing- everything you ever imagined.

This is a brief guideline to some of the venues in Ireland that we regularly photograph. No matter what your style, we will find backdrops and inspirational settings, art works and interior details to suit your taste.

This should help you in choosing your dream location for the Big Day or let you get ideas for photo opportunities at your venue. If you click on the hotel, some more images will appear.
