Ashley Park House – Wedding Venue

Ashley Park House, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary


Karen & Niall | 15th September 2017

When Karen & Niall called to visit me and discuss their wedding plans with me, I knew it was going to be unique and fun day!  I had heard of Ashley Park House, but had not had a chance to photograph this beautiful venue before.

So, I was pretty excited!

The venue, located just outside Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, sits on the shores of Lough Ourna.

I got up to Ashley Park early, just so I could have some time to walk around and take everything in.  It is such a tranquil and peaceful venue.

Karen was getting ready at the family home in Cashel, and Niall rocked up cool and relaxed a few hours before the ceremony.  That was how this day was going to go . . .

Cool -relaxed – fun!

The bridal bouquet’s, favours and dinning room table decor were all hand made by Karen.  They were beautifully crafted.

The ceremony was conduced by Graham Barrett from Spiritual Ceremonies.  Graham was great to work with, nice and relaxed and had everything well prepared.  He was not known to Karen and Niall previously, but gave a very personal ceremony.

It was a very nice touch.

Anyway, I won’t bore you anymore, and hopefully the photos from the day will help tell the story a little better than me!

Wedding – The Clonmel Park Hotel

C&B | The Clonmel Park Hotel, Co. Tipperary

7th April 2017

It is a great way to kick off my wedding blogs for 2017, with the beautiful wedding of Carrie & Billy, at The Park Hotel, Clonmel.   Going back to a venue I have captured on a few occasions can be daunting, as you don’t want to duplicate the shots from  previous wedding’s.

But for me, it makes me work even harder to try different shots and angles, to make the wedding different and that little more special.


Carrie, had local Hair Artist Sara Condon and Make Up Artist Karen Reeves looking after her.  They are both fantastic to work with, very professional and their work is fantastic.  They both worked together and had everything done on time.

This is always great for a photographer, as any delays in the morning can affect the flow of the whole day.


Carrie and Billy had both the Ceremony and Reception at the Hotel, so they wanted to make the day a little more personal for them.  So they arranged to meet each other before the ceremony at St. Patricks Well, located just a few minutes from the hotel.

It was a beautiful Friday afternoon, we were sure we would have the place to ourselves   . . . . But were we in for a surprise!!!


Carrie’s old school had organised a school mass at the same time as our shoot!!!  It was quite a surprise for all of us.  I wasn’t sure how they would react, but being the great people Carrie and Billy are, they invited the girls over for a photo (or two!!)  I got trigger happy!!

The school really appreciated it, and the girls all wanted to touch the dress!!

We had to warn them that we still had to get to the wedding, so no dirty hands!


And on to the ceremony


Weddings cakes can be quite elegant and have become a very important part of the Wedding plans.  But, I have never seen a cake like this!  The details were just amazing, I found myself going back on a few occasions to make sure I hadn’t missed anything.

Well done to Phil O’Regan, at Flour Power Cakes for this awesome cake!

And finally to finish the day off, a few dance moves.
