A Wexford Girl and a Dublin Boy marry at a perfect Kerry Wedding. With heavy rain forecast for their wedding day, Amy and Mick's Kenmare wedding at Dromquinna Manor was meant to be a wash out. Somebody must have put out a lot of Child of Pragues for not only did we get no rain we also got sunshine. We were able to take full advantage of the stunning grounds of Dromquinna to capture wonderful wedding photographs. Amy wore a 2 piece bridal dress with a wonderful hairstyle by Trish O'Shea from U Nique U Hair in Kenmare. Make Up was by Ann Marie Gaire at Jewel Beauty and the bridal flowers were by Kenmare Flowers. Amy and Mick were married by Spiritual Ceremonies at Dromquinna Manor.
Ireland has always been known as a nation of Immigrants and most of us have relations that have left these shores. London Bride Lisa Kelly had her heritage in mind when she was planning her Kerry Wedding. What better place for your wedding than in your mother's home town of Listowel. Having spent many a childhood summer in Kerry, Lisa knew that it would be the perfect destination for the wedding party. Like any good Irish wedding we managed to capture Lisa & Michael with a creamy pint of Guinness in the hotel bar as we waited to enter the wedding reception. Lisa's Hair was by Tricia O'Sullivan , Make Up was by Annette O'Brien, The Listowel Arms looked absolutely gorgeous for the wedding reception.
We don't have to go far to take great wedding photographs in Kerry. For Greta and Johnny we were able to use lovely country lanes outside their own homes to take wedding photos. After Church we headed a short drive in their vintage Volkswagen wedding van to a local spot to take the coolest bridal party photographs. Thank you to Nicola's Haven & Brush n Blush for having all the girls ready in time for Church. The beautiful wedding flowers and flower girl crown was by All Seasons Florist and Brendan Reidy was on hand to capture the whole day on video. We all headed to The Killarney Heights Hotel for the wedding reception.
Part of the charm and the magic of living on the coast in Kerry is the weather and you never know what the Atlantic will bring. As we left for Triona and David's wedding Storm Hannah approached Ballybunion but it failed to put a dampener on this wedding party. With the help of an amazing couple and bridal party who braved the elements we managed to create some wonderful wedding photography. Triona's hair was by Expose Kilflynn, make up was by Glamour Listowel, her wedding dress from Finesse Bridal. A beautiful Spiritualist Ceremony at The Listowel Arms Hotel was followed by the wedding reception.
Spring brings with it the arrival of brighter days and the return of colour after the dark heaviness of winter. It is a lovely time of the year for Irish wedding photographers. Eleanor and Padraig's Kerry wedding was a return to pastel hues, most evident in the bride's choice of wedding dress. Eleanor's stunning gown was from the Bridal boutique Finesse. Best described as a blush pink it was a delicate move away from the traditional white and ivory that we are used to seeing at Irish weddings. Thank you to MKBeauty and The Hair Gallery, who had Eleanor ready in plenty of time for the Church. Tie the Knot Flowers and Stephen O'Donoughe Video for helping to make great wedding photographs and finally Ballygarry House hotel for wonderful wedding reception.
2018 was a great year for Irish Wedding Photographers. We had a summer heat wave to remember that produced some amazing wedding moments. Here are the highlights of our wedding photography for 2018. Thank you to all the couples who chose Paper Hearts for their wedding photography. Looking forward to meeting our new couples and having fun planning unique wedding photographs.
As any Irish wedding photographer will tell you no two weddings are the same. Working as a wedding photographer I have seen it all - the calm & the chaos. However whatever way the morning goes I've never seen a day where the bride isn't having fun. What I have learnt from wedding photography is that there is no right or wrong way to have a wedding ♥️
One of those perfect mornings which dawn bright and clear when you just know that the Irish weather will bring out the best in wedding photography! Taken at 9am as the staff at Helen's Pub Kilmackillogue were beginning preparations for an outdoor Kenmare wedding.
This lovely wedding photograph captures that gorgeous time of year when the leaves begin to fade. Taken on the grounds of Dromquinna Manor this natural wedding photograph shows that a simple background is all that is needed to capture a special wedding moment with a bride. Irish wedding photographers have to work that little bit harder as we usually have the weather against us but as I often discover working as a photographer in Killarney if we wait out the rain we can grab our chance.
Sometimes you don't have to go far when looking for a place to take your wedding photos. It can be right on your doorstep that you get the best images and a place that is significant to you. How wonderful these images will be for future generations to look back upon. A benefit of being a wedding photographer in Kerry is that we are never too far from farm yards and country roads. What better place to take your wedding photographs than on your own family farm.
Lela & John are a young couple very much in love and their elopement is the stuff that romance is made of. On a perfect Irish summers day they exchanged their wedding vows overlooking Derrynane beach. Click on the link to View Wedding Images

2018 is turning out to be a Summer to remember. Without a doubt this is the longest stretch of unbroken sunshine with no rain in recent memory. A hot day for your wedding can be both a blessing and a curse but this gorgeous photo of Katrina with her bridesmaids and flower girls shows how a fun relaxed moment can make an epic wedding photograph. It helps having the great Kerry Coast on our doorstep.
All the best laid wedding plans can be disrupted by the unpredictable Kerry weather, especially if your wedding is surrounded by mountains and the stunning lakes of Killarney. We not only had the rain but the mist and fog that comes with being in high altitude. Louise and Maurice from Kenmare were not put off and we got some wonderful and fun wedding photos.
