Just before Christmas I shot Elaine and Jared’s wedding at the Imperial Hotel in Cork. They came home from New Zealand to get married, well aware of the vagaries of Irish weather and lack of light in December.
The day did indeed turn out to be dark, wet and cold, but I was determined to get a few outdoor shots. It wasn’t possible for most of the afternoon, but I stuck my head out just after the speeches (and a pretty scary haka!) to find that the rain had stopped and the wind had died down.
Elaine and Jared were up for nipping out into the night for a few minutes while the band warmed up, and we made straight for the neon lit front of Arthur Mayne, an old pharmacy turned wine bar just round the corner from the hotel. A few shots there, and one on Oliver Plunkett Street with the Christmas lights, and we had our magic outdoor shots! Then back inside for dancing and partying …! Yay!
Many thanks to Magda Lukas for 2nd shooting and helping me out with this wedding.
