Carla + Stephen’s Fabulous Martinstown House Wedding

Carla and Stephen were married at the stunning Martinstown House recently. What an amazing wedding venue this is, suitable for both intimate and larger weddings alike. A private country house on the most amazing grounds close to the Curragh in Co. Kildare. Not only was the venue a dream to work in but this couple were too! I loved this wedding day <3

Carla and Stephen’s stunning Martinstown House wedding

I must have been snapping away at Carla’s parent’s house in Newbridge a good hour before I realised there was a Tullamore connection. It turned out that Carla’s Dad is from Tullamore and her Mum is from Kilcormac! Not only that, but I had photographed another family wedding the year before! It really is a small world and it was lovely to spend time with members of the Charles family again and working with the McTigues and Dempseys for the first time was an absolute pleasure.

Martinstown House is an amazingly private country house close to the Curragh, Co. Kildare. It’s not your typical wedding hotel and is perfect for both intimate and larger weddings alike. I first visited Martinstown House about three days before Carla and Stephen’s big day for a recce. Even in the wind and rain it still looked beautiful. It has its own magnificent walled garden as well as a covered area where the ceremonies take place.

Thanks so much for having me Carla and Stephen <3
