I first met Aine when we played in the school orchestra together in Carraig na bhFear! Roll on twenty years later and I am photographing her wonderful wedding! The weather was a photographers dream on Aine and Pats wedding day. No wind, mild with cloud cover!
I met Pat early in the morning for some photos at Watergrasshill GAA pitch. I was expecting to just meet Pat and his groomsmen only to be surprised to be faced with almost a full team of hurlers keen to get a puc around going! I figured from that turnout that Pat must be a key member of the club, which became clear during the entertaining speeches.
The ceremony was held in Carrignavar church. It was nice to see familiar faces of people I would have known in secondary school including the celebrant Fr Terry who was our school chaplain.
With the wedding on only the day after the shortest day of the year, we agreed to head straight for Springfort Hall after the ceremony to avail of the grounds and daylight for photos.
It was a great day full of fun and laughter. Aine and Pat were very relaxed and really easy going making it such a joy and a privalege to capture their special day. Thank you both for trusting me and best wishes on your married lives together.
