I have tried to make this wedding story short and sweet, but I’m afraid it’s impossible. Simply because of the Ashling and Andrew’s special connection. I have meet them over a year ago. We even did a pre wedding shoot. That time I have met a somebody special and close to their hear, a dog named Chewy. Never realised that would be my last time to meet their special friend. Chewy did not make to the Big Day. But Ashling and Andrew has never forgotten about him, and so they put in a small memorial inside Ashling’s flowers.
I was pretty confident that this day would be really special. After meeting A+A for their Engagement Shoot, I knew they had a very clear idea of their wedding – relaxed, fun, laid back, with closest of friends. Oh boy we had some fun! Inflatable toys for adults made a great entertainment for drink reception and many hours after as well. The Millhouse in Slane once again did their best in what they do best – hosting intimate, personal and warm weddings for people who love different approach to their love and Wedding Day. Ever thought of a Prosecco Mobile Bar? Check out the Vintage Vanp then. Ashling was lucky enough to win their services at the competition, what a threat to have at the drink reception.
I could go on forever how incredible that day was. Instead, I think it’s worth to share what Ashling and Andrew said after having their photos delivered:
“When we got engaged in June 2014 and booked our venue shortly after, we knew that our next job was to find the perfect photographer to capture our day. We never imagined we would get so lucky…
We stumbled across Tomasz’ website in early August. We had agreed that we didn’t want our photographs to be posed or copied or formal. That just isn’t “us.” What we wanted was a reflection of OUR day, our REAL moments. And boy were we in for a treat. As soon as we looked through Tomasz’ photographs online we were very excited. But it was equally important to us that we felt comfortable in the company of the photographer we chose. Within 5 minutes of meeting Tomasz we were sold. Not only because of his incredible talent and stunning photographs, and albums. But because of his lovely, warm, friendly and relaxed nature.
We booked Tomasz right away and the following September we met again for our engagement shoot. Tomasz was excellent at responding and communicating before the shoot. It was really important that we included our wee dog Chewy in some of the photographs and this was not a problem. There was so much fun and laughter that day. Not to mention the stunning photographs Tomasz captured. We couldn’t wait for the big day…
Tomasz arrived on the morning of the wedding full of smiles! He is such a warm person and immediately put us all at ease. Getting ready that morning was such a fun, relaxed affair. Tomasz snapped away, capturing every single moment. The memories we didn’t even know we were making at the time and the ones that can easily get lost in the mania. We now have a physical reminder of all of those special moments.
We decided to do a first look as part of our day for two reasons-to share a special intimate moment before the madness began and to get some snaps so we could have more time with our guests later on. Tomasz chose the most stunning, unique location for these and the result brought immediate tears to my eyes! This set the tone for a fun, relaxed day ahead. The photographs never felt like a chore, even the “posed” ones. Tomasz snapped away keeping the experience fun and fast!
We were confident that Tomasz’ photographs would be amazing, all you need to do is look at his portfolio. But we never imagined that he could capture the essence of the day the way he did. The smiles on the faces of our family and friends, the mad facial expressions, the warm embraces, the emotion, the fun.
Tomasz made us feel like the only couple he ever shot! He felt like a friend. And it couldn’t be more evident how much he loves his job. While on honeymoon he sent us our sneak preview of some snaps. Cue floods of the happiest tears. What was to come after just blew us away.
We have no idea how we will pick an album! We want them all. I have, and will be recommending Tomasz to anyone who will listen. Just meet this guy, see his work and you cannot help but be sold.
