Fairytale Weddings by TaraD

I often refer to Ballyseede Castle as my second home, (a girl can dream can’t she?)….

There is always such as the incredibly warm welcome received from the moment you step over Mr Higgins or Molly (the irish wolfhounds) who are often found lying on the steps of the castle.

So when you are planning your special day, it would be silly not to consider a castle for the perfect setting!

It is a Photographer’s dream as well as a couples. You can get married on site, in or outside. The gardens and various rooms of the castle mean that you do not need to travel off site for your photo shoot giving you more time to spend with your guests!

The food is AMAZING, the decor is beautiful and it is located only minutes from Tralee town and Kerry airport which makes it super easy for your guests!

Don’t just take our word for it, look at some of the features that have been published of our weddings there….

How do we make each wedding unique? by TaraD

Often we get asked how do we make each wedding different. Well it’s quite easy really 🙂 We take inspiration from our couples, the locations that they have chosen and their personalities.

We spend a lot of time before the wedding chatting to our couples to get to know them. Sometimes this is at our home, in a pub or restaurant or sometimes at while the kids are having a play date. Our style is very informal, our approach is also the same. The more relaxed a couple are around us the more fun we can have on their wedding day.

Alan and Courtney were married last week at the beautiful Ballyseede Castle in Tralee. The day before their wedding they called to our home and we drank coffee, Courtney played a game of catch the hens and our rooster “Lucky”. Then while Alan and myself chatted about how they got to know each other, Courtney popped on a bee suit and went to investigate the bee hive with Dave. The whole afternoon was very enjoyable and relaxed and we even managed to fit in a few photos too!

This meant that when we arrived to photograph the wedding the next day, we had stories to talk about to the rest of the family and Courtney and Alan were completely at ease with us. We had also found out that Courtney loves comics, while Alan tests video games for a living and this is how we came up with the idea for these images.

We LOVE what we do (I am sure you can tell that from our images) and we also want to challenge our creative minds on every single shoot so we don’t get bored! The creative mind needs to be challenged constantly! It is the blessing and curse of any artist!

So if you hire us, expect to LAUGH a lot, CRY a little (as it does get emotional) and most IMPORTANTLY have lots and lots of FUN!!!!

Wedding photo’s shouldn’t be boring, they should tell a story about you and your families for generations to come.

Make it the best story ever! 🙂
