Perched on a hill,over looking the vale of avoca, sits one of Ireland’s most exclusive wedding venues.Clonwilliam house only takes a limited number of weddings a year.This and the strong attention to fine details come together to insure the perfect day. As I’ve never shot a wedding at Clonwilliam before, I decided to come earlier to to look around. When I turned the driveway corner and saw the house for the first time, I was blown away. What a fantastic wedding venue. On arrival I was greeted by Miriam ( the owner ) who gave me a very quick tour of the house and grounds. The interior of the house matched the exterior perfectly. It was bright,airy and fresh with a modern twist. Everything was set perfect for the day ahead.
Breda and Peter first met at the finish line of the New York marathon, little did they know that as they finished one race a new journey in life had begun. Breda and Peter decided to have their entire day here at Clonwilliam, from getting ready, their ceremony and the wonderful reception afterwards. This is always a great idea as it means no travelling for anybody that day. The day started with great excitement and atmosphere in both camps. They had 140 of their close family and friends to join them in celebrating their day.
I’ve covered well over 300 weddings to date and this ranks as one of the best weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. All the stars aligned,the venue,the Vista,the weather and the atmosphere. But most of all Breda and Peter.
