Wedding Ceremony in The Millhouse
I know i have not been blogging for while. Its crazy busy time of the year for every wedding photographer. It will be even busier with all weddings i have to be shoot all over Ireland but will try to update my blog as much as possible. I can skip this wedding as it was special very special. Not only because two amazing young people tie the knot in one of the most recognised venue around Dublin “The Millhouse” . This celebration is proof how great you can plan your wedding if you stick with simple rule: organize everything in one place! Adelle and Stephan do exactly this, even with planing a wedding from abroad as they work and living in Uk. Everything , whole day was smooth.
For me as photographer who witness so many weddings i can easily see how relaxed and stressless day is if couple stay in same place , get married in same place and whole party is in same venue. We have a lots of time from morning preparation thorough ceremony , drink reception etc. The Millhouse has a great potential also for wedding photos, with various background from industrial stairs, doors ,walls but there is also orchard, river ,rocks you can use whatever suite best. I saw recently also so many wedding venues have a massive dinning room to accomodate as many guest as possible but take care less about space for guest during drink reception. This is what many couples do not consider when they plan their wedding. In result you may end squeeze in few rooms with other 100+ guest. its not only bad for your guests comfort but also makes nearly impossible for photographer to takes some documentary style photos from your day. This is why Millhouse build their new conservatory room to create much more space for mingling which i found so good. Big shout to you guys for such a great idea and makes your venue even better.
How cool and emotional
Not sure where to start . First thanks big thanks to Adelle and Stephen to choose me I’m really grateful i can witnessed what happens that day! The Ceremony in old Mill was something special, I’m there as photographer after so many weddings i thought i saw everything . crying groom, beautiful brides, great music… but i did not . Its amazing how sometimes we discover something new. I was realy touched emotionally when Stephen brother get his guitar during ceremony and start singing , even now i can remember this moment. It was beutiful (saying this being totally music ignorant:) You can see on photos groom reaction, it was real it was something he can not hide. Moments like this remind me how cool my work is. Weddings like this one keep me believe i can experience something new something what give me energy to bring my photography to another level even by small step.
Ohh … so natural look, so stylish dress. Believe me or not but Adelle did not have a pro makeup done. All what you see on photos is her natural skin! Its very rear you can photograph bride with just lips touched! It work great when it comes to photos. Why I’m writing about this? Well its important if you like your photos to look good. Having to much make-up or tan compare to groom which does not have any. You can end up with big difference on your skin tones. It will be dificult to achive natural look if you would like to have one. No i do not recomand to do not have a make-up done:). Just adore what Adelle decide to go for as results in my opinion are so good.
