Lisnavagh House Wedding
To be really in the wedding day takes a lot of work. A wedding can sweep you up, stress you out, carry you along at speed and before you know it you’re on the dance floor thinking what the hell just happened. To be really mindful and enjoy each minute as its passes is not an easy feat but it’s worth a go. Tyler and Grace had that way about them. They really seemed to be present at their wedding, living every moment, enjoying it all and taking it in. Not once did we feel rushed shooting their portraits, and they never seemed to stress on where to be next, I think you’ll see that in the photos. This was my first Lisnavagh House wedding so I was really excited to see the house too.
Lisnavagh House is a gem of a venue, hidden away in the north of county Carlow in a small town called Rathvilly. And what better way to shoot in a gem of a wedding venue but to shoot it with this gem of a couple.
The Wedding Day
I first Skype’d Grace over a year ago when she was living in New York but didn’t get a chance to meet Tyler at the time. I clearly remember thinking from our conversations what a nice, friendly and happy person she was.
We finally met them in person on the day and instantly felt part of the clan. We had the craic all morning with everyone especially the lively bunch of bridesmaids Grace had with her.
As the morning got underway we had time to roam around this amazing house capturing the goings on during preparation and meeting so many of the couples lovely friends and families. This is the thing I love about a Lisnavagh House wedding, there are so many rooms for everyone to relax, get ready, hangout, letting us document it all.
The gardens and grounds don’t disappoint either with so many beautiful old tress and trails. Even though it was a windy day we found so many great spots that were beautiful and gave great shelter with some lovely light to use for photographs.
The Wedding evening
The party went on into the night with amazing food from Eunice Power whom I’ve met on many occasions and her food is always not only amazing but so creative too. To top it all off was a cracking session from SpringBreak playing out the eighties.. being a child of the eighties I always appreciate that.. not giving away my age or anything!
Thanks to Grace and Tyler for being an awesome couple and such a welcoming pair we had so much fun and we hope you love your photos more as the years go on… xxooxx
