The Blarney Castle Estate

Early morning access when the light is exquisite to shoot some promotional work for Blarney Castle Estate has culminated in some glorious scenes. This image, along with the dawn chorus, makes it all worthwhile!!

Wedding Shoot at Blarney Castle Estate, Cork & Gleninchaquin, Kenmare

Well the project has reached it's completion and I could not have achieved everything without a number of professionals involved throughout. Firstly I'd like to thank my models Agne Cvirkaite and Ciaran Power for being so understanding throughout & easy to direct.  Karl of Memories Bridal Boutique on Patricks Quay for their amazing Wedding Dresses. Tom Murphy of Tom Murphy Menswear, Patrick Street, Cork for their beautifully tailored Wedding suits. Mary Bernard of The Maryborough Hotel & Spa for opening the doors to their wonderful "old world charm" that only helped to inspire. Thanks also to the Blarney Castle Estate for allowing us all-access to their historic grounds. The mature gardens & grounds there are superb and only wished we had more time to venture further!!
Thanks to Emma in Seasons Beauty who so professional pampered & prep'd my models prior to all of the shoots. Lastly but not least, to my amazing team of Hair & Make-Up and Lighting assistants which consisted of Leah O'Sullivan & Ciara O'Connor of Peter Mark, Cork with huge thanks also to Elizabeth Long & Liz Jewitt for the wonderful flawless Make-Up artistry.

A great afternoon was had by all shooting for Tom Murphy Menswear in Cork. Thanks to Ciara O'Connor at Peter Mark for the wonderful working hand....I just wish I had the hair to allow you to do the same for me ;o)

The suits were modelled by the professional, as always, Ciaran Power.
