To photograph a wedding on Ireland was one of my dreams as a wedding photographer. A few other places are Iceland (my favorite destination on Earth) and Tuscany. I was wondering if Ireland was like in my mind and all the pictures in my head. It was. When I finally came to Carlingford it was even better than I expected. Mountains, sea, houses full of history and nice food at the pub in the same house I spent the nights that weekend. Orla and Rob got married September 15 in this quaint village between Dublin and Belfast.
Orla and Rob were guests at a wedding I photographed in France earlier this year. I knew after our Skype meeting that they were an easy going couple and everything was so relaxed during the day. The only challenging for me was to drive on the left hand side. I have to admit I was a little bit nervous about that, but it all went fine. Guess if I was driving very slowly and sitting very close to the window...
Orla and Rob had their reception at Ghan house, a perfect wedding venue in Carlingford. The old coffee cups with organic flowers made a beautiful setting and in the end of the evening some typical Irish music and dancers entertained us all. That was so fun to watch!
Thanks Orla and Rob for taking me to Ireland! I hope to see the west coast the upcoming spring when I will revisit Ireland for some magazine work.
