Jamie and Susan, St. Marys Church, Dingle and The Skellig Hotel

I'm thrilled to share with you some pictures from the lovely wedding of Susan and Jamie in Dingle last year.  I'm always delighted when couples 'share' with me
their beautiful  professional wedding photos.  Susans flowers were the perfect match for her beautiful, sunny personality!  Photography by McMahon Studios

Ballintaggart House....the great Irish outdoors!

Following on from yesterday post, todays pictures from Ballintaggart House feature the great rustic outdoors of the Irish countryside!  The day of the shoot was wet and cold ("a soft day thank God" as we say in Ireland!) but that didn't dampen our spirits one bit and some of the braver amongst our party even headed down the fields where Tricia O'Sullivan was even reportedly seen hearding sheep (a woman of many talents!)  Very brave gals........but the result was so worth it!
The fires in the house were blazing and created a lovely warm atmosphere where we could defrost and Pauline was able to capture the most amazing images!  Included are some of the wonderful tea pots from a fabulous collection by Ballintaggart House. 
Having developed a passion for wreath hearts I hung a lovely rustic one on the door made from moss which suited the rustic setting perfectly.   Be it made with moss, gypsophilia (babys breath) or fresh flowers the 'Heart Wreath' is fast becoming 'Buds' signature design....! 
Sit back put the feet up and enjoy these beautiful shots!

Two Gorgeous Red heads at Ballintaggart House.....serious eye candy!

Following on from my post a few days ago I'm delighted to present the fabulous photos from our shoot in the unique Ballintaggart House.  There is just so much eye candy in this shoot that I've decided to present them in two parts.....part two tomorrow!
I was delighted to work with such passionate wedding suppliers who are cutting edge in their field! 
First of all the wonderful award winning photographer Pauline Dennigan who's eye for detail and amazing talent is revealed in the texture and quality of these amazing shots.  I have to admit that I let out a little squeal when I uploaded the photos and got my first glimpse!
Fabulous hair by the weddingsonline.ie award winning hairstylist Tricia O'Sullivan of Munster Mobile Hairdressing
Seriously stunning make-up by Kathryn O'Neill who is head of make-up artistry (Ireland) for Daniel Sandler Cosmetics. 
Fabulously unique dresses and accessories by Dirty Fabulous.....all beautiful vintage dresses with a story!
THE most amazing cupcakes that I've ever tasted by The Cloudberry Bakery....they made a cake for Jamie Oliver!!!
And our beautiful model Sarah Breen whom Pauline discovered and twisted her arm to model for us as she had exactly the look we wanted for this shoot!  This was Sarahs first taste of modelling and she was a born natural!
For my part I took the opportunity to use my new line of brooch and gem bouquets and I think they compliment the dresses beautifully! I kept table settings simple using vintage massed carnations with accents of brooches and beautiful tulips who's beauty speaks for itself! And just for fun a little bunting! John in Ballintaggart House was so good as to provide me with beautiful mis-matched china.
Hope you enjoy and more to follow!
