They say that the Winter Solstice is the day when the Sun stands still. We're not sure if this was the plan Sandra & Kevin had in mind when they set their wedding date for Dec 21st but the Sun was most definitely on it's best behaviour - throwing off amber light all afternoon.
Once a professional Irish dancer now living in Australia, Sandra's attention to detail was reflected throughout the day.
Both growing up in the same village, little did they think that they would have to come back from Australia to get married in their local church and then have to leave again so soon.
From the first contact via email to meeting for the first time on the wedding morning, it was a dream to shoot your wedding and we wish you a fantastic journey together.
Simple, stunning, elegant, Julie & Ellis's day at the Manor in Adare with Michelle McDermott from Dream Irish Weddings was all they could have ever wanted from an Irish Wedding. The light being thrown around all day was more than we could have wished for. Throw in a new Church for us (St Nicholas in adare) and Team Woodard was up for the experience. Hope the images here give you an insight into a simple,stunning,elegant Day
We have no magic answers about how to have the perfect wedding but the first instant you arrive into the bridal preperations on a wedding morning you can tell immediately how the day will flow. When it is so evident that your bride & groom cannot wait to marry, it makes it all the more special.
We knew they had been following our work for some time and were so as ease with each other that the imagery just kept presenting itself to us and got better and better as the day went on.
The tower clock in the village always catches our eye and it made for the perfect backdrop for our pitstop in the village and Rathsallagh House was bursting with so much Autum colour, comparisons of our recent trip to New England to shoot a Fall wedding were hard to ignore.
We are excited to share this wedding and hope you get inspiration if your planning an Autumn wedding.
