Outdoor ceremonies are becoming more popular in Ireland but we had never shot one before at Dromoland, in fact it may have been their first one!

Charlotte & Matt are based in London but like so many 2nd generation Irish with strong family connections, they return to get married.

Dromoland Castle was their venue and with rumours that Ashton Kutcher was surfing in Clare and might be visiting the Castle, there was great excitement on the morning of the wedding.

Unlike our neighbouring Countries in Europe an outdoor ceremony takes a lot more planning and risks have to be taken but this couple were determined that it would work out.

From our meetings with this lovely young couple, we knew they were a little shy of the camera but really wanted their story captured in true photojournalistic style. As the wedding was on a Sunday there was an extra calmness to the day and shooting outdoors in Dromoand was another first for us.

A few drops may have fallen but no one even noticed, the backdrop and serene setting helped everyone escape from reality for a few wonderful minutes.
