Amanda & Peter, Ashley Park House.
July 15, 2019
Ashley Park House in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary was the venue for this gorgeous wedding on May 4th last. The sun decided to shine all day too which always helps in making a great day even better.
Amanda from Abbeyleix and Peter from the UK met while studying at Trinity College back in 2009. They dated briefly and became friends. In 2011, they rekindled their relationship and the rest, as they say, is history! This wedding was one of my favourites of 2019 so far. I got the warmest welcome from Amanda’s family on arrival at their home. Her family and friends are so down to earth and lovely, I immediately felt at ease. I was also very lucky to work alongside the very talented videographer Sheena Faughnan from Croiative Films.
Arriving at Ashley Park was just stunning. This place is a sight to behold. The best thing about it has to be the owners and staff who are all so friendly and welcoming. The food is out of this world. The venue itself is so serene, so beautiful. I hope to document many more weddings here 🤞
There were a lot of special moments dotted throughout this day. The most emotional for me was when Amanda’s Dad Mark saw her for the first time in her wedding dress. The poor man was overcome with emotions seeing his beautiful daughter in her wedding dress. I had to contain myself behind the camera. I always choke up myself when I see Mums and Dads get emotional. It makes me imagine how I will feel when/if any of my four girls are standing in front of me on their wedding day.
The beautiful bond between Amanda and her bridesmaids was amazing. Talk about being happy to see her happy. These girls were ecstatic. It was gorgeous to see. Peter and the boys have a great bond too and those speeches were just hilarious. I don’t think any of them held back and the wedding guests couldn’t contain their laughter.
As soon as ”All The Best Wedding Band” hit the stage, the Irish decided to show their English friends how we dance and soon after, it was time for me to go 😉
Thank you, Peter and Amanda, for trusting me to document your day. It was my pleasure <3
