Livia,

That day was so special and you helped make it that way. We have incredible ones to cherish the actual wedding day from you. Thank you so much. These are so beautiful. They made me cry my eyes out!
You not only took incredible photos os us, you really helped me through the stress of that morning and that lead to a fairytale kind of day with my husband <3
— Liz + Kevin

Liz found me through a photographer friend that shared my love for pugs (who knew pugs would get me new customers?! That's one more reason why pugs are the best, lol!) and we hit if off instantly! She decided to Elope in Ireland and wanted a wedding photographer that could capture their elopement the way they dreamed of and I couldn't be happier to have been a part of it! 

Then the Hurricane Ophelia came one day before their big day and we didn't give up! Although her makeup artist didn't show up I, who am slightly obsessed with makeup,  did my best to help out, but Liz was such a bad ass and took charge! Surprisingly the weather was lovely and full of sunshine and no fallen trees were in our way so the rest of the day went smooth. 

From their intimate ceremony in Cork just with their parents to stopping on the way while we drove back to Dublin we managed to capture some of the beauty Ireland has to offer like the ruins of the Rock of Cashel, which is just stunning! Please have a look through the end of this post and check how stunning those surrounding are!  

If you are thinking about eloping I say: be prepared for the things you can't predict, open your hearts and embrace the moment because it's magical and totally worth it!! 

Hope you all enjoy the images xx

LIVIA!!!!

You have killed me, these are so amazing. I absolutely love what you managed to capture. Thanks so much for sending this over - we’re delighted.
— Gemma+Phil

I often get asked "Livia, what happens if it rains on our wedding day?" rain is one of couple's biggest fear when it comes to wedding but what I say, as a wedding photographer that seen it all, is: you are the one that makes your day special, not the weather!

When it rains on a wedding I'm shooting my main job is to make it something to be incorporated (that doesn't mean running in the rain, although that would be fun too!) but to find light, beauty and special moments regardless of the weather and this wedding I'm showing today it's an example of that. 

 Gemma and Phil had planned their day up t the smallest details (Gemma was fantastic and there was a impressive spreadsheet involved when we met!) but one think you can't really predict is Irish weather, but they didn't let a little rain be an obstacle and as you can see in the images there was no short of happy faces all around! 

One thing that they decided to do that it's having their first look and their couple's portraits before the ceremony, that I believe helped with the nerves and they were able to enjoy their reception with friends and family without rushing to have their photos!

If you are planning your wedding at Rathsallagh House there won't be any problem when it comes to lovely places for photos even with a little bit of rain! 

Hope you enjoy the images xx

Oh Livia!!
So many tears and smiles from Melbourne ❤️ You are so talented!.. Which we knew already as that’s why we asked you to document our big day but couldn’t have imagined such a stunning collection of photographs. Every single one captures the essence of the day perfectly. We’re both so happy with them all, as are our family.
— Esther + Tomas

Esther and Tomas were the most easy going couple I ever met in a way you always dream your clients to be (well, if you are a wedding photographer). Their intimate wedding at Ballilogue (a fairly new venue for weddings that it's just the cutest!) was what I believe weddings are about: love, loved ones and lots and lots of joy! 

On their wedding day there was rain (just a little - the sun came right back and gave us a beautiful golden hour towards the end of the day) but even if it had rained all day it wouldn't really made a difference because as you can see in the images there was not one person that wasn't beaming with happiness and I felt such an immense pleasure to be a part of such a lovely day. 

What I say to you, if you recently got in engaged is this: planning a wedding and making all those decisions can be tough but do it light handed, take your time and make sure to enjoy the process because when you take the time to enjoy your day (one that you've been planning for so long and that goes so quickly) the memories you will have forever are priceless and I know that when they look at their images they can re live all the happiness of that day once more!

Amy and I couldn’t be more delighted with our photos. Our only regret is that we didn’t ask you to stay for the whole evening. It is a really excellent collection, thanks so much for capturing our day.”

— Amy + Shane
 

Shane and Amy got married in one of the sunniest I've seen Ireland being since I've moved here 6 and half years ago. 

They decided to have tall at the grounds of Temple House in Sligo which I have to say is a fantastic wedding venue specially if you get the chance to enjoy the outdoor and you can see in the pictures that they definitely were able to enjoy all that Temple House has to offer! 

From the ice cream for the reception, the table decorations inspired by Harry Potter, the bubbles, their huge bridal party and the lovely outdoor speeches all I can say is that this day wasn't short of lovely moments to capture. 

Hope you take the time to look their beautiful wedding, even take inspiration from their lovely touches while preparing for your own wedding! 

Hope 2018 is bringing you already all the happiness! x

S+E | Fabulous Bellinter House Wedding Photographer - Preview

s+e_bellinter_house_wedding_photographer.jpg

I knew this would be an amazing wedding from when I receive their email in my inbox. Sarah and Eoghan had a clear vision and when I went down to Galway for our engagement session I knew that not only they were just the nicest people they put so much effort to make their wedding one of a kind.

One of the requests they had for me on the day of the wedding was to have an epic Vanity Fair/Magazine Cover photo in the award winning bathroom at Bellinter and oh boy tI think we got it, right? Look at this bridal party! A-mazing!

I can't wait to share the rest of the images but I couldn't help myself to squeeze in before the 2017 ends a preview of their wedding photos in Bellinter House, which by the way is just such a fab venue! <3
