Ireland Wedding Photographer
This was our first experience on the Emerald Isle as we donned our Ireland wedding photographer hats. It was extra special as it was for an incredible wedding photographer – Martin Cahill – and his amazing partner Anita. We’ve photographed the weddings of other wedding photographers in the past, and each time it’s an honour to be alongside a peer on their big day.
A few times in our years, we’ve been thrown into a true representation of a locations culture. Erika and Romain’s Swedish wedding comes to mind, as does Amber and Bryan’s ranch engagement session. To be encapsulated in a culture and feel how it feels to actually be from there is something else.
Enter Anita and Martin’s wedding, where it felt over the top Irish. We feel so fortunate for having been there for this very Celtic experience with such an incredible vibe of family and friends.
The wedding was hosted on the western tip of Ireland in Fenit. The windswept grasslands and endless views made for one of the most exciting backdrops we can remember. The beaches were awe-inspiring in their beauty, and overall that part of Ireland was like nothing we’d ever seen.
And, of course, the Guinness.
As you’ll see in the story below, the wedding found it’s way to a perfectly quaint pub where traditional music filled the night air. That pub experience was incredibly authentic, and most definitely a highlight of the day.
Martin and Anita’s wedding is featured on Want That Wedding.
In that feature, Anita and Martin shared this small tidbit from their day:
The nature of the day was probably captured best by one of the local fisherman who dropped into the bar for a quiet pint and to hear the band. Five hours and many more pints later, he asked to take a piece of wedding cake home because he didn’t think his wife would believe for a moment that he had been at a wedding.
Also worth highlighting with this wedding is Jim Pollard. Endless thanks for assisting and being there for the adventure.
