One day trip to the Aran Islands

A small break on the wedding posts to share our one day trip to the Aran Islands!

I was down in Connemara for a wedding and that was a perfect excuse to do something that my partner always wanted to do: go to the Aran Islands.

Since we live in Ireland Gianluca always said he wanted to go there so after the lovely wedding at Rosleague we decided to give it a go on the next day, the weather wasn’t amazing but the Islands were! That’s the beauty of my job is that I get to travel all over the country and is great to able to share with my partner (and as you will see later in the photos, every time I see good lighting I get him to pose for me, so there’s some of that to look forward lol).

The Aran Islands were such a beautiful place, just proving once again that Ireland is freaking amazing, we got a bus tour with a lovely man who showed us around (there’s several buses just when you leave the ferry, not really a need to pre book, in my opinion, and they all do the same kinda tour) you get to see most of the island in a few hours.

If you are considering going I would say DO IT! Beautiful locations and lovely crowd (there’s a lot of tourists so maybe bring a sandwich with you because the restaurants are usually packed, specially around lunch time) .

We finished the day having some lovely food and great memories, hope you enjoy some of the photos

Our photos are incredible and capture every single part of our day perfectly. You were so lovely to work with and knew exactly the images that needed to get. Some of our guests even referred to you as a ninja, always in the right spot to capture our special moments. We couldn’t have asked for better photos and a better person to spend the day with. Thank you so much for allowing us to relive all our special moments
— Aideen + Colin

Want to know how to have a black tie wedding and look incredible but also have the best time and have so much fun? Well, this is the wedding you can take inspo from!

Aideen and Colin first priority was to have a relaxed day where they could have the most fun with their friends and family and choosing to do everything at Tinakilly House (from getting ready up to their dancing) was for sure the right choice.

Often couples are faced with the decision of having everything on site or being in separate venues and although I understand why couples would like to have their wedding in a church, if you are not having one and choosing a fab venue and they can accommodate you two getting ready I would highly recommend! Is the easiest hassle free way to get the most out of your day and make sure you are not running around all day which mean more time to spend with your guests ! \o/

Hope you like the images and get some ideas of how to look amazing like these two without losing a minute of fun!
