The last wedding film I made before the lockdown was a civil ceremony on a windy day in Breaffy House Hotel. I started the morning in the brides house to get the morning wedding preparations of the bridal party and it is usually one of my favourite times as I can get some really nice and creative shots of the dress hanging and the final touches of makeup being applied to the bride.

It was onto the hotel to get set up and meet the photographer Rob Coakley. Rob is a friend of mine and a very talented photographer and we work a lot together I would highly recommend any couples to check out his work if they are looking for a photographer. After setting up and grabbing some shots of the groom and guests arriving the civil ceremony took place in the Hotels main hall, and they always do a great job in setting up the room to look fantastic.

One of the reasons I like filming weddings in Breaffy House Hotel is the beautiful grounds they have for photography and video couple shoot. Myself and Rob shoot in a very relaxed and documentary style so there is very little posing and time spent on it (more time to spend with your guests!), but it was even less this time with the howling wind and rain not being our friends! However they braved the weather for 5 minutes or so to get some nice shots that are alway worth getting as they do look great for the highlight film.

I have some more wedding films shot at Breaffy House Hotel on my Vimeo Page and if you would like some more information on my work or would like to check for wedding availability you can contact me on the website here or drop me a line at
