An Autumnal Engagement shoot in Donadea Forest, Kildare!

I recently went to Clane in Co. Kildare to shoot Jenny & Declan's engagement shoot. This happy couple are getting married in October 2012, after meeting in October, then getting engaged in October, they decided to continue and be consistent with their date! So after taking a few snaps in their home with their gorgeous and unimpressed cat Shadow, we headed to Donadea Forest park where Declan proposed to Jenny last October. They are huge fans of the Autumnal colours so we thought it best to take advantage of this season before it gives way to Winter! They were the sweetest couple. It always makes me so happy to capture people in love. I'm such a soppy old romantic ;)

I cannot wait to capture their wedding day next October. Bring it on!

Martin & Gayle's Amazing Glasgow wedding!

So you're probably going to need to make a cup of tea before you sit down to this feast of wedding eye candy! Apologies for the unbelievably long post but I had to fit in as much as I could and that's not even all of it!

It was my first visit to Glasgow and what better way to spend it than to shoot one of the coolest weddings I've done? Meet Gayle and Martin, one of the coolest, sweetest couples I've met and I feel honoured that they asked me to travel over to Scotland to capture their special day. They got married on 11/11/11 at 1.11pm!

I had the pleasure of having Ashley Baxter aka Girl with a camera along with me to 2nd shoot for a few hours. I've been following Ashley's photography online on twitter and her blog for several months now and I was so impressed with her photojournalistic style that I had to ask her to come along and take a few snaps. Seeing as she lives in Glasgow, I couldn't not ask her.
Check out her shots from the day!

There are so many details I loved from the day. From the bride and bridesmaids wearing pink converse, to the humanist ceremony where the bride and groom literally "tied the knot", to taking photos in GOMA, the rooftop terrace, the bagpiper, eating Haggis! The list goes on and on!

So onto the photos! Enjoy!

Venue: 29 Glasgow
Makeup: Parima Barghgir
A big thanks to GOMA for allowing us the space to shoot some wedding portraits.

I wish Gayle and Martin all the love and well wishes for the future. They deserve all the love and happiness and I know they'll live happily ever after ;)
