Wedding Photography by Venue

I've been working as a wedding photographer around Ireland for quite a while now. Below are some of my favourite wedding venues I've shot in the last year or so.

We're really spoiled for choice here in Ireland for wedding venues. From Weddings in Castles to Country Houses Weddings, from City Centre Wedding Venues to full on festival themed Glamping Wedding venues, we do really cover a lot on this small island. 

Borris House Wedding Venue

Borris House, Carlow

Borris House is a private historic house dating back to the Kings of Leinster and when you choose to have your wedding at Borris House the house is exclusively yours for your wedding day. Every wedding I have done in Borris House has been different. It's a venue you can really put your stamp on and make it your own. 

What I love: The lace garden at Borris House is stunning all year round. The light in the bridal suite is a dream and I also have a soft spot for their rustic ballroom.

This means the castle is only accesible to you and your guests, with 19 rooms and suites for your family and friends. Your very own Castle Wedding!

What I love: The fact that it's on it's island of it's own means that you feel even more removed from your day to day. Also, the light in the bridal suite is unreal!

Borris House Wedding Venue

Situated in the picturesque village of Castletown Geoghegan, County Westmeath, Mount Druid is an exquisite parkland of 100 acres. The purpose built tin chapel, boathouse, barn and their custom made accommodation nestle sympathetically into the landscape and offer the opportunity for a bespoke wedding to remember.
