I seem to be photographing a high number of weddings outdoors in recent years, and perhaps this is also down to the upward swing in Civil and Humanist weddings, which year on year is steadily climbing upwards, and it is easy to see why as they are such relaxed 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, 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, then I get stuck in and put it together, it is always then so rewarding once the dust has settled don the images.
Nikki & Roy contacted me about their wedding, and like any time I have been at Inish Beg previously, they were just a totally cool couple. They were going for a complete non traditional wedding, but a very cool vibe and so it was, and 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, and that is all I have to hear!
Check out a small selection from their super day.
