Sarah and Stephen's Wedding in Markree Castle, Co. Sligo, Ireland. Markree Castle Wedding Photographer.
And yet another marvellous love story of such a stunning couple, Sarah and Stephen hostend at an extraordinary venue - Markree Castle. As with most of my weddings, this one was booked a good year and half in advance, when nobody could have ever imagined the world having to deal with this pandemic madness.
We were lucky with a lovely pre wedding photoshoot in August, just after the first lockdown. Sarah and Stephen travelled to Galway from Dublin, with their cute doggie.
It was a joy to meet up and as always, important to make the happy couple feel comfortable as to what their photo preferences and wishes are. This reassurance all contributes to making sure the couple are relaxed and can enjoy their special day to the fullest!
Their original Wedding was planned for November but was postponed to December - it went down as a great success on their beautiful day and in the very special venue of Markree Castle. It is an authentic historical Irish Castle, listed in the Romantic Castles of Ireland hotel and venue portfolio, located along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way. Beautiful castle grounds with gardens, onsite chapel, choice of civil ceremony locations and a choice of 31 Luxury En-Suite Bedrooms, make it such a perfect destination for weddings.
On arrival at Markree Castle, the sun was shining with a warm welcome from Roisin, the residential doggy. Such a great canine photo model and supporter who stayed by my side throughout the day and, later, joined the bridal party for the Shamp-Shamp shoot and made us laugh a lot.
The wedding turned out to be very relaxed, intimate and full of joy. Christmas decorations, castle interiors, Ceremony in a beautiful chapel, all added to the wonderful ambience making it into such a magical event.
