Another day out East Cork. And another day for an intimate Barnabrow Wedding in the heart of East Cork. Tricia absolutely loves her beautiful dog. Top of her list of priorities. “Philip! Don’t forget to take some pictures of my lovely golden Dog, Nemo!” Nemo took a shine to me as soon as I walked in the door. And as friendly as a Labrador can be. And I went swiftly into covering the bridal preparations for Tricia and her crew on the morning of her wedding, Getting soaked into the atmosphere of the morning.
Swiftly onto Shanagarry Church for their wedding ceremony. Then a quick jaunt by Ballycotton. And finally to their wedding drinks reception at Barnabrow House in Cloyne
Barnabrow is a venue I’m very familiar with. I’ve certainly been there on many an occasion over the past decade and more. I think one year I photographed somewhere in the region of ten weddings at Barnabrow. Which seemed a lot. And with a return to a any venue on a regular basis what is key is to make each of images their own. No two days are alike. No two weddings are alike. They cannot be. So it is vital that they can have their own unique quality, the style of work demands it. Each couple must demand it.
But when the job entails close observation, and then perhaps quick reactions, then how else can it be but it’s own thing? With this one the pictures flowed out with an ease. The mood was good. The couple brought great energy, their family and friends were absolutely in such great form and the entire day was one of fun and enjoyment. Like any wedding should be of course. So, without too much fuss, and I hate fussin’, what we have here is a selection, a summary, from Tricia & Kieran’s wedding, an intimate Barnabrow Wedding.
