I just have to share with you a little sneek peak from this lovely wedding!
The ceremony was held in a beautiful church in Dublin, The Newman University Church, it’s so unusual inside and a really cool place to visit. Afterwards we all walked through Stephens Green and on to The Shelbourne where the staff were so attentive and lovely, this gorgeous hotel is such an established place, deep rooted in Dublin history, I really enjoyed spending the day there. What can I say about my bride and groom?! these two loved up people welcomed me into their family to share this special moment in their life, the speeches gave me a lump in my throat, the personal touches throughout the day were really lovely and I’m so happy they chose me as their photographer. 🙂
Here’s a little peek into a fab wedding from last week in the beautiful setting of Trudder Lodge in Newtownmountkennedy ( the longest place name in ireland…)
After nearly a week of lovely warm sunshine the rain started to pour down on Friday and didnt stop, you can imagine how gutted I felt when I realised we wouldnt be doing many photos in the Monsoon outside!! My bride and groom were absolutely calm and nothing was going to spoil their day!! We are in Ireland after all!
It was a very relaxed day, from the minute i was welcomed into the family home in Dublin until the end of the night when the band were rocking, it was such a lovely day. I loved all the personal details, Adam made his own homebrew especially for the day and Laura had Converse for dancing the night away in, the wedding cake was a family tradition birthday cake and its really those little things are what make your day really special to you.
Thankyou to Laura and Adam for letting me be part of their day. 🙂

Wow, ive never felt the love like i did at last weeks wedding, everyone was so lovely and it was a family affair at home which held many memories and sentiments for my bride. We had a dads first look and there were so many fab details too, from the lemon theme with the brides stunning manolos and fabulous bouquet , to the pretty wedding cake and dessert table made by the maid of honour. I just have to share a few images!
I love JP & Luke, they are one of my favourite bands and most people know them as “those guys that did the JCB song” and possibly nowadays you might have heard Ed Sheeran cover their song ‘All my Life’ . I’ve never been to a gig as uplifting and fun as a Nizlopi gig, they give a natural high.
This gig i was thrilled to shoot for CeolCollective was the last night of a tour, they hadnt played here for 6 years, i hope they realise that we need them back soon!!

I recently shot the red carpet at a charity event run by the Dublin Simon Community in The Morrisson Hotel, an award ceremony to recognise the work done by all the amazing volunteers, it was a great night, really humbling- I’m glad lucytakesphotos could be there. Keep an eye on their Facebook or website if you want to view the rest of the nights photos.
They have a new campaign at the moment it would be great if everyone reading this would go and have a look at their website.

Thanks a million for your work, everyone mentioned what a pleasure it was to work with you on the night.
