I seem to be photographing a high number of weddings outdoors in recent years. And perhaps this is also down to the mix of global warming (LOL) and the upward swing in Civil and Humanist weddings. Which year on year is steadily climbing upwards. And it is easy to see why. They tend to be such relaxed, and chilled affairs. One of the venues which has an incredible place for an outdoor ceremony has to be Inish Beg, near Baltimore (and Skibereen) in West Cork.
If the weather plays ball then the little island (I think it is referred to as Hannibals H two O!) at Inish Beg is absolutely unique. Properly unique. A tiny island tucked away in a wooded area just off the water. And on first viewing I was completely blown away. Yet always felt it could tricky. But then again, I view every wedding as a bit tricky to be honest. But then I get stuck in and put it together. Get right into the swing of it. And it is always then so rewarding once the dust has settled on the images.
Nikki & Roy had contacted me about being their Inish Beg wedding Photographer. They were very excited about the potential. The FAQ on my site gave them a good chuckle. They really got the style of wedding work I provide. And like any time I have been there previously for weddings, they were just a totally cool couple. They were going for a complete non traditional wedding. Instead, a very cool vibe. And so it was. I felt that this is something that suits me down to the ground. They wanted a documentary wedding photographer to photograph their Inish Beg wedding. And more than that they wanted me. That is all I have to hear and I am hooked!
