Angelika and Damien travelled to Cork to meet me last year. They hadn’t spent a night in the city before, so I put on my best tour guide hat and gave them a few tips for eating and drinking and generally enjoying a night in the city centre.
They told me about their wedding plans, taking place in the lovely Kildare village of Straffan, and then on to the amazing and very beautiful Village at Lyons. I had never visited there before, so when I arrived to shoot their wedding six months later, I was blown away by how stunning it is. A very unusual venue with lots of meticulously restored buildings, it was a joy to photograph Angelika & Damien’s wedding there.
