The Rectory, Glandore. The Wedding of Fay and Sam.

Fay and Sam tied the knot in July in the stunning seaside location that is The Rectory in Glandore, Co Cork, Ireland. This area is notorious for its micro climate which is more akin to the Mediterranean that the Atlantic. Sure enough, while there was record rainfall around Ireland on this day, Glandore lived up to its famous tag – the weather here was glorious. Here are some of my favourite images from the day. Images by Shane O’Neill.

Stunning South Coast NSW Australian Country Winter Wedding

Hey all, yes it has been a while since my last post, but I am finally getting around to doing more of this stuff (Blogging that is)

I photographed this beautiful wedding a couple of months ago, and I have really eager to share it!

As wedding photographers; dont you just love those very simple, elegant weddings where everything is in the one perfect spot! You can point the camera anywhere. No driving around, no traffic hassles, and to top it off, the most lay back couple you ask for. And then to make it even more amazing, the most perfect light/ afternoon (in winter!! Yes, this is winter!! How good is it!!) you could ever dream of! I can totally understand why the very talented Dean Dampney lives down that way.

I have chosen quite randomly (I apologies) there was just too many….and I hope I havent posted too many.

Anyways, please enjoy!

Tim 🙂

Rachel Tatem - August 16, 2011 - 9:04 am

Beautiful job!

Robert Speck - August 17, 2011 - 1:37 am

Abigail Winters - August 19, 2011 - 11:27 pm

You are so right. Who would have thought that this was winter?? The lighting was exceptional … but only because you knew what to do with it. Lovely, just lovely.

Claire & Enrico in Rome

We get a lot of inquiries for our services abroad and have shot weddings in Kenya, Spain,France, Portugal, Italy, Canada to name a few. I thought I would post a wedding from Italy that we shot, in the heart of Rome at Basilica St. Maria and then up to the Park Hotel at Villa Grazioli  for the reception. It was an amazing day with very high temperatures , over 100f!We manged to find pockets of shade to photography the couple in around the back streets of Rome. It was a very relaxed day with all of the couples closest friends and family around to share the day. A huge thank you to  Claire & Enrico for a beautiful day and all their hospitality.
