As an Dublin Wedding Photographer, I was privileged to capture Ruth and Olly’s beautiful wedding celebration at Tankardstown House in Ireland. It was a stunning day filled with laughter, love, and joy. This beautiful venue provided a stunning backdrop for their special day, making it the perfect setting for their wedding story.
I arrived at Tankardstown House Wedding on the morning of the wedding, eager to capture the preparations for this special day. Ruth and her bridesmaid were getting ready in one of the estate’s charming stone cottages, surrounded by a warm and loving atmosphere. The bride was breathtaking in her stunning wedding gown, which was accented by traditional Irish elements such as delicate lace and a hint of green.
Once Ruth was dressed and ready, I took some beautiful bridal portraits, capturing her radiant beauty and the happiness in her eyes. I also took some sweet photos of Ruth and her bridesmaid as she helped her into her wedding veil. Ruth’s hair and makeup were immaculate, and she looked like a true Irish princess. I captured every moment of her getting ready, from her putting on her dress to her having a special moment with her father.
