Lizzie & Nigel, Kilronan Castle

Lizzie and Nigel's wedding at Kilronan Castle last August was an absolute joy to photograph. They have been living in Perth for some years and they booked me without having met me. It's not so easy organising a wedding in Ireland from overseas. We actually only met face to face 3 days before the wedding and from the first moment we clicked. They were very easy going and I knew I was going to really enjoy photographing their wedding. It was a very emotional day as Nigel's mother passed away suddenly only a few weeks earlier. They had a special candle and a framed picture of his mother which they placed on the altar during the ceremony and later placed on the head table in the ball room, as a way to include her in their big day and honour her memory. It was my first time photographing a wedding at Kilronan Castle even though I had photographed one at their sister castle Lough Rynn castle a couple of years ago, I couldn't have been happier with such a gorgeous venue, I just fell in love with it! Lizzie and Nigel kindly me placed me at a table amongst their guests for the dinner and the food was exquisite. There was a hint of rain during the reception but luckily it held off for the most part and we were able to take plenty of photos on the grounds. We made a stop over at Lough Key after the ceremony, it's such a scenic spot, with the beautiful lake and the lush woods. One of my favourite moments from the day was when Nigel's 6 groomsmen lifted him up and threw him skywards: that was my first flying groom! I am very grateful Lizzie and Nigel chose me to photograph their big day and I cannot wait to be back at Kilronan Castle!
