Real wedding, Adam & Roisin said I do at Dromoland Castle

Wedding Photography at Dromoland Castle, Ireland

Adam & Roisin got married at Dromoland Castle in May 2017 with a large guest list from Ireland, the UK & beyond. I had the honour of photographing their wedding and as both Adam & Roisin would be getting ready in separate parts of the castle, I took a second shooter along for the full day. My second shooter was covering the groom prep which started with lunch for family & the groomsmen at the golf club at Dromoland while I was photographing the girls getting ready in the spa at Dromoland. Below are some sample images from the day. As a wedding photographer, at a venue like Dromoland Castle, you are spoilt for choice for both the indoor & outdoor photo locations, there are just so many photo opportunities. But like all weddings, time is short so my style of shooting quickly before moving on to the next location was aptly suited.

The hotel offer couples and photographers two golf buggy's which we were free to use and drive around ourselves on the day. That was a huge help as the grounds are massive and you'd just never get to walk them in a timely manner on a wedding day. Both Adam & Roisin were a joy to photograph and their love for each other was very much evident for all to see on the day. After Adam & Roisin entered the function room to meet their guests, there was 10 minutes of Israeli dancing where the guests essentially throw the groom up in the air on chairs, table cloths or by any means possible. It was such a great experience and the atmosphere was electric.

Dromoland Castle Wedding Day Photography

Hi, I'm Gerard, an experienced wedding photographer & photography teacher. I photograph weddings throughout Ireland & I'm based in Co. Galway in the west of Ireland.

I'd consider myself to be a people person, I know how to bring out the best in my couples & I take what I do very seriously, but you would never think so when working with me.

I've been photographing weddings for 11 years; my style is very much documentary in nature & I’ve found over the years the best way to capture beautiful moments is to let them occur naturally. Many love stories have unfolded in front of my cameras and it truly is an honour when a couple places their trust in me to document their day.

While some of my couples live only a few miles away, others plan their wedding from abroad & I place great emphasis on taking care of my couples both pre & post wedding. If you like the idea of a photographer who will guide you through each step from the pre-wedding meeting, the day itself & right through to delivering your printed story in an Italian handmade album, I'd love to hear from you...
