When I am heading out on the Dingle Peninsula for a wedding the chances are, more often than not, I’m off on a Ballintaggart Day. Tucked away discreetly just outside the town of Dingle it is one of the more popular venues in Kerry. And one that offers a unique experience. I know from the client type it attracts that they just love to get away from the bustle of City life and spend a few days down in the Kingdom of Kerry. And away at Ballintaggart House and what Dingle has to offer. Which is certainly plenty.
Caoimhe & Edwin brought their crew from Dublin to this country house in Dingle for their country house wedding. The house was lively on the morning. Which sets a great pattern for the day where the pictures are concerned. And with the reportage style then it is mood that we thrive upon.
Everything in Dingle seems at arms length from Ballintaggart House.
The Church on Greet Street is minutes away. Once the ceremony is done it is clearly popular to stroll over to Dick Macks Pub for a few drinks. And a unique enough bar it is. And one which is super popular. I can’t recall a wedding where the party didn’t go there for a drink or two.
Once done with ceremony and the drinks in Dick’s, Caoimhe & Edwin managed to sneak out of the pub. They hopped into their friends vintage Porsche and headed off to Bin Ban beach for a few quiet candid moments together. With me in tow, of course. Tide was in. It was a bit wild. Yet enough space to navigate the newly married couple and get a few snaps, because let’s face it, there can be no other way other than keeping it candid. And certainly direction does not come into the equation. So working with what you have to work with aids that creativity.
Once done with the beach, and that was a five minute thing, it was right across to Ballintaggart house in great time to enjoy the reception and party on onto the night. A Ballintaggart Day certainly has a certain unique quality to it. Check out the selection of pictures from this one.
