I photographed Tony and Úna’s wedding in Cork just before Christmas, including the bride and groom getting ready in their houses. I enjoyed this as it’s less formulaic than photographing the ceremony in a church and it’s nice for the couple to have memories of getting ready. I’m very good friends with the couple so it was a relaxed afair (as much as that’s possible) and I think it made it easier for them that they know the photograpaher.
This is the first set of photographs from their big day, the rest will follow soon. Black and white works excellently for wedding photographs but I decided to keep the last two in colour. They’re of Úna, the bride when she was finished getting ready so she deserves to be seen in all her glory in colour!
