Blaine + Jayne, Abbeyleix Manor Hotel.

I first met Jayne a year before her wedding day when she was on the hunt for a wedding photographer. We hit it off right away and before we knew it, we realised we had chatted for well over an hour about anything and everything but weddings! I think throughout our lives we meet people that we are instantly comfortable with and Jayne was one of those. By the time we were going our separate ways, it felt like I had known Jayne for years, and I knew we would enjoy working together.

Meeting Jayne

I first met Jayne a year before her wedding day when she was on the hunt for a wedding photographer. We hit it off right away and before we knew it, we had chatted for well over an hour about anything and everything but weddings! I think throughout our lives we meet people that we are instantly comfortable with and Jayne was one of those. By the time we were going our separate ways, it felt like I had known Jayne for years, and I knew we would enjoy working together.

The Rain

After about six weeks of continuous sunshine, the rain decided to appear on the morning of Saturday 28th July last.  I always remain positive, that the weather will clear, even for just a few minutes, to give us a chance to get some outdoor shots and it did! I don’t think anyone would guess looking at these images that the day was as showery as it was!

Thank you

Thank you, Blaine and Jayne, for a lovely time documenting your special day. Thank you to the super flower girl Aoife, and the bridesmaids Nicola, Ashley and Laura and groomsmen Ronan, Cian and Richard, who made my job so easy. Much gratitude to the Dempsey family for such a warm welcome when I arrived at their beautiful home and to the Lyons family too. It’s never easy on the morning of a wedding to have a photographer arrive into the thick of it all.

Abbeyleix Manor Hotel

Blaine and Jayne had their wedding reception at the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel, a gorgeous hotel on the outskirts of Abbeyleix in Co. Laois. Thanks to all the staff there for their welcome and professionalism.
