Alternative Outdoor Wedding Venues Ireland

I’m a big fan of shooting at different locations special if it’s alternative outdoor wedding. So many stand out for me. One of the best things about having an outside ceremony is the fact that it will allow you to take advantage of natural beauty. it could be in your own house garden or on the beach. Although this will largely depend on the specific location that will be chosen. The outdoor setting can be breathtakingly beautiful. The sight of the greens and the fresh air will surely make your wedding more special. For sure, your special event will be more photogenic because of the stunning outdoors.

I’ve recently had a chance photographing a wedding for Linda & Derek at the small but unique restaurant near Westport House. The ceremony included traditional Irish Druid blessing, and tying the knot. They super easy and laid back manners help me photograph as I like . Having reception in Gracy’s Bar is a big fun-filled celebration. If you in searching for alternative wedding venues in Ireland or ideas for drink receptions that stand out from the norm have a look through the post to get some inspiration from this amazing place. There is a lot of DIY details and decorations done by the bride and groom and their friends. You can also check my Pinterest board which is full of detail from different Irish wedding parties I photograph recently in 2016.
