S+E - Winter Wedding Perfection - Bellinter House Wedding Photographer, Ireland

s+e_bellinter_house_wedding_photographer_livia_figueiredo732.jpg
We knew Livia was special when we met her, but my
god she exceeded every expectation we had. We work with photographers a lot in our industry, so we had specific and high expectations for what we wanted our photos to be. We knew when she joined us in Galway for our engagement shoot that we had made the right choice in photographer. She is amazingly talented, listens to what you want, is extremely creative, and the way she captured the day was just superb. We didn’t want stuffy posed “weddingy” photos. We wanted photos that captured the sense of the day, our guests, and all the small special moments that would mean so much in the years to come. Livia did all of this beautifully and was so subtle in her approach on the day that half the time people didn’t even realise photos were being taken. She went so above and beyond on the day and post-wedding and the results were truly amazing.
— Sarah + Eoghan

This is for sure one of my most loved weddings I ever shot! There’s not one client that sees some of the pictures on my website and don’t tell me what a dream it is and I always says that they are definitely one to beat!

Sarah and Eoghan put so much time and effort to make their wedding to look exactly what they envisioned and there was so much of their personalities in every corner of Bellinter House, which by the way is one of my favourite wedding venues in Ireland, and you can definitely tell that when you look at the photos.

I hope you enjoy the photos and if you are planning a winter wedding this one is for sure one to take loads of inspiration from!!!

Preview - A+S - Sunny Temple House Wedding- Sligo, Ireland.

Yesterday's wedding was just so good! When they told me they were looking to have an outdoor ceremony in Ireland the first thing I asked was: do you have a plan B? I know that sounds pessimist but being a wedding photographer in Ireland you have that fear of raining built in your system! LOL. 

Luck enough the weather was just beautiful throughout the day and we were able to take some awesome shots and have some awesome ice cream :) 

Here are a few pics containing awesome couples, large and epic bridal party and lots of sun. Hope you enjoy!

A+B Emotional City Hall - Angler's Rest Wedding - Dublin, Ireland

a+b_anglersrest_wedding_livia_figueiredo.jpg

Grab the tissues because this wedding is just amazing. 

Antoinette and Ben met in Seoul while teaching and they instantly feel in love after matching in a online dating website. They lived in Vietnam together before that they endure a long distance relationship which it was a tough one. 

After getting his grandmother ring after a trip to his family in Michigan and knowing he wanted to be with her for the rest of their lives. Sadly no long after their trip they found out that Antoinette had a lump on her breast and she would need to go under treatment in Dublin while he stayed in Vietnam still waiting to propose!

As he says: "Antoinette had started chemotherapy at this stage and had lost most of her hair. I knew I wanted to propose but I didn't know how much energy Antoinette had or how she would be feeling. On a whim, and since she was feeling up to it, we decided to take the ferry to Inishmore. Antoinette was weak but she wanted to rent a tandem bike just like we did in Gyeongju, South Korea. I wanted to get a horse and buggy but she refused. We rode our bike to the other side of the island, to Dún Aonghasa. There, high above the rocks and waves, I asked Antoinette to marry me. She said yes and we've both been giddy and smiling ear to ear ever since. I gave her my grandmother's ring, designed by my grandfather.”

When I met Antoinette we chatted on how planning the wedding whilst in treatment was helping her to keep the energy and the hope, her and Ben actually DIY'ed all the decoration which gave an extra special touch in the whole day. 

At the end their wedding was just so full of energy and love, they had a 1950's wedding themed day and even a tandem bike like they did in South Korea and in their proposal and they drove to the door of Angler's Rest which was just awesome!

Is weddings like these that being a wedding photographer is just a blessing and knowing and sharing stories of couples like Antoinette and Ben it's such a honour.

This wedding was very special because I actually shot the groom's sister wedding before and I knew that they were just great people and to be honest by the end of the day I was certain that not only the groom's family was great but the bride's one as well!

The day was surrounded with laughs and love and I'm dying to share more, specially on our couple portraits at the great surroundings on the Wineport Lodge
