I had the great pleasure of photographing the entire collection of veils for Meredith at Classic Veils by Love & Lavendar. When we met to brainstorm for the shoot it was clear from the start that we had the same vision for the shoot!
The Irish weather as usually is unpredictable and even if the weather forecast says sunshine all day, you could wake up to a storm! And thats just the way it is. In Ireland you always have to have a contingency plan for all weathers at a wedding or a photo shoot!
So on a Wednesday morning a couple of weeks ago we woke up to…… A fantastically beautiful sunny day. And considering we had a shoot on it was even better. At 9.45am the team descended on my house and we all set off for our fabulous location at Forest Park House B&B in Boyle, Co Roscommon. Hair and makeup started straight away and Meredith from Classic Veils started the task of steaming any of the veils that needed it. I collected the beautiful bouquet from Eden Flowers by Gemma and Eileen Creamer arrived with the dresses for the shoot.
As well as shooting the veils, there was also the ties from Groom Ties to be photographed and Andrew (who owns Groom ties was our model). By 11.45 we were ready to start. The first shot always takes the longest, getting the lighting, posing and location right. The location was the fabulous Gatehouse beside the B&B. It is a building that I have been driving passed for years thinking, “it would be an amazing location for a shoot” and it did not disappoint. It had a semi circle wall to one side with columns in front and a beautiful garden and gate entrance.
It couldn’t have gone better. The weather was amazing! Beautifully sunny with a little cloud and the building and garden was our backdrop.
Thank you so so much to my amazing team of creatives for the shoot! Without you guys it just would not have worked.
