I’ve been referred to as a photographer many times and even though I’ve studied it, gotten paid for it, had full and half page spreads in the Irish times, the Daily Mirror, Hot press, and the RTE Guide and my first exhibition “Liberties Inked” launched in the National College of Art and Design in June of 2013, from there it took pride of place in Dublin City Hall as part of Culture Night where it ran for a month. The exhibition is currently touring libraries around Dublin. I will always be a student of photography. I say this because it is one of the only art forms that will never cease to evolve and personally I’m constantly discovering new and interesting ways to make my work better as I strive for perfection.
If you are looking for memories as lasting as the vows you will exchange, then celebrate your wedding at Westport House, voted Ireland’s Best Exclusive Wedding Venue by weddingsonline.ie in 2011 and shortlisted again in 2013.
The historic Westport House puts the WOW into your wedding, and its one-wedding-a day policy will ensure that you can relax in the comfort of knowing that the house is exclusively yours for the day.
Wedding Party on Front Steps
Westport House provides a fairy tale backdrop for capturing those first moments of your married life. Situated in a splendidly romantic parkland setting, the venue has ample photo opportunities with a lake, waterfalls, terraces and beautiful gardens all overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Clew Bay and Clare Island.
Dancing in the Long Gallery
All three floors and thirty rooms of Westport House itself are exclusively open to the bride and groom for your special day. Once inside your guests will be wowed by period features such as the marble staircase, the Angel of Welcome, the intimate library and even, the quirky dungeons.
A welcome drink may be served in the stunning Entrance Hall with guests mingling on the front steps or in the library or touring the house at their leisure. For the meal, your guests will move to the Drawing Room (seating up to 60), a very intimate room where there is a beautiful 19th century hand painted ceiling.
These wedding portraits speak for themselves, capturing not only the beauty of the moment but also the magic of the surroundings!
