Lena & Paddy, Glasson Country House & Golf Club

As Lena and Paddy were busy making their wedding plans, little did they know what would happen just six weeks shy of their big day... The lives of the Bracken family were turned upside down when Lena's Dad was extremely fortunate to survive a serious accident. So it was no surprise when the emotions got the better of everyone (including me!) as Lena and her Dad walked up the aisle in Kilcormac that day. It was a journey of determination and pride, this Dad was not going to let his daughter down.

Award-winning image

I am very grateful for having been asked to document Lena and Paddy’s wedding. Every wedding is a responsibility to shoot and an honour¬†to be part of, and this one even more so. The picture I captured at the top of the aisle won an award, which meant a lot to me, and to Lena and Paddy. Thanks to the Bracken and Malynn families for allowing me to share and enter this emotionally charged image (in the IPPVA Bank of Ireland Wedding Photographer of the Year 2018 awards) and to the judges for recognising the enormity of that moment.

Lena and Paddy, I wish you all the very best for a long, healthy and happy life together. Thank you for having me <3
