If there’s one thing that I enjoy as a Destination wedding photographer, it’s getting to experience new and exciting locations. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Alex and Bradley, wfrom London, who met during their university days. Their love story led them to a breathtaking destination wedding in Ireland, and what a celebration it was!

Ireland: The Perfect Destination Wedding Location

Ireland has long been a top choice for destination weddings, and Alex and Bradley couldn’t agree more. Its lush landscapes, rich history, and warm hospitality make it an ideal place to say “I do.” The couple’s decision to exchange vows here was a testament to Ireland’s timeless charm.

Castle Leslie Estate: A Fairytale Setting

The venue of choice for Alex and Bradley’s fairytale wedding was none other than the illustrious Castle Leslie Estate. Steeped in history and romance, this estate has hosted weddings for generations, including the legendary Sir Paul McCartney. Nestled within the estate is the picturesque ‘Glaslough’ or Green Lake, known for its legendary monster pike and captivating beauty.

A Joyous Ceremony at Saint Salvator’s Church

The wedding ceremony took place in Saint Salvator’s Church within the Castle Leslie Estate, specifically in the charming village of Donagh, Glaslough. It was a joyous and intimate church ceremony filled with love and laughter. The couple exited the chapel to be showered in confetti and lead their guests to Castle Leslie.

From Sunshine to Rain: Capturing Every Moment

Ireland’s weather can be unpredictable, and this day was no exception. From glorious sun to torrential rain, we embraced every moment to capture stunning photographs inside the majestic Castle Leslie. The result was a series of vanity fair style wedding group photographs that showcased the couple’s elegance and the timeless beauty of the estate.

Editorial Wedding Photos By The Lakeside

A few moments were set aside to capture editorial wedding photos of the couple against the backdrop of Castle Leslie’s breathtaking grounds, with the mesmerizing Green Lake glistening in the background.

Heartfelt Speeches and Surprise Entertainment

Following a delightful wedding breakfast, emotional speeches warmed the hearts of all in attendance. As the evening unfolded, a surprise awaited guests in the form of singing waiters, who injected a burst of energy into the celebration. The party continued well into the early hours, a testament to the couple’s joy and love.
