The unique setting of Borris House in the county of Carlow was the venue for Treasa & Gerard’s wedding. I have had the chance to be a documentary wedding at Borris House previously. I headed off on what was a rather dirty enough day weather wise on the Sunday morning. The rain was relentless and the wind was certainly howling as I made my through the country to reach Carlow late April. This was to be my third wedding on the spin. I had been to Raheen House and Garryvoe on the previous two days. The rain was always coming after two relatively good days weather wise. In typical fashion.
It makes little difference in my humble opinion. And as Treasa had remarked to me “the rain will keep everybody together in the house”. This was something I never thought of. And so right she was.
Once the ceremony finished the happy couple along with their bridal party, family and guests formed a parade as they moved to the house itself. I must say, this image is one of my favorites in all the time. And I have been doing this job a fair bit. It’s the type of image that just sets itself up. And the rain coming down just added some extra spice.
Once all guests made their way back to the main house, the place was absolutely bustling. Especially as I made my around during the drinks reception. Seeking and finding opportunities for images later on in the day. For me Borris House always presents opportunities image wise. Especially once you find a rhythm to work with. Getting a good atmospheric feel for the house and it’s occupants on the day is vital.
It may have been coming down a fair bit outside, but inside Borris House the atmosphere and mood was undeniable for. So have a look at this brief rundown from Treasa & Gerard’s country house wedding. One Sunday in April and their documentary wedding at Borris House.
