We were over the moon when Chelsea and Brian asked us to be a part of their fabulous outdoor wedding at Rathsallagh House in Wicklow. We love outdoor weddings, and the setting in the gardens at Rathsallgh House is just magical. Chelsea and Brian said their “I Do’s” beneath the summer sky in front of all of their friends and family, and the mature trees and brightly coloured flowers of the formal gardens provided the perfect backdrop.
Keen to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones during the drinks reception, Chelsea and Brian chose to do a “first look”, taking some time to get their couple portraits taken before the ceremony. Seeing each other before the wedding ceremony isn’t for everyone, but more and more of our couples are choosing a first look and we think it’s a great idea; particularly if you’re having a later ceremony.
We took Brian out into the gardens and had him wait for his bride to be. There’s a wonderful feeling of excitement in the air during a first look, and the moment a couple see each other for the first time is one of our favourite things to witness. We let Brian and Chelsea enjoy the moment for a while, and then took them for a walk around the stunning grounds. The mature trees provided a beautiful back drop for the photographs, and offered some lovely open shade to diffuse the sunshine and create a wonderful soft light. We love shooting weddings at Rathsallagh House, and could spend all day exploring the gardens. After a delicious dinner and some heartwarming speeches, we couldn’t say goodnight without taking the happy couple out for one last shot under a tree filled with fairy lights!
