L + D ~ Civil Wedding Ceremony in Cork, Ireland ~ Camden Fort Meagher
June 20, 2014
Dream about Your perfect Wedding Day, full of joy and happiness, fulfilled with people that you love, beside your newly wed better side. This is the best way how to describe the moments, that I witnessed during this Civil Ceremony. Day has promised to be sunny and warm, and it did not let us down. I met David beforehand, while he and his mates were getting their shaving done locally. Moved up quickly to meet Laura and two beautiful bridesmaides. Sister and a Friend. At her side. It was a joy to see girls getting ready with such a positive spirit. Bride2Be also found a bit of time to take down the washing, which made us laugh really hard.
Ceremony took place in a beautiful Camden Fort Meagher. It was truly historical moment for Laura and David, but also for that military fortress. It was a first ever civil ceremony taking place on this site. What an honour to document it ! After the vows and that stressful part, we enjoyed a small cuppa in a Tearoom. Very moody and vintage location for a quick afterparty. While all the guests were getting ready for a long evening, we popped out to discover beauty of the location. And it did not disapoint us. Underground tunels, stairs and anything else you wish to see in an undeground military fortress. It was a truly enjoyable moment. Boys made it even more entartaining by… ekhm ;-)
Couple of family formals and we headed off in a blue VW Beetle over to Bunnyconnellan Restaurant for a serious BBQ! It was nothing like you could expect on an evening wedding meal. No speeches, no first dance or anything that you would expect on that day. Instead, it was a really relaxing and laid back evening, full of celebration, laughs and smiles. It created very special, positive mood for the evening. We have managed to run away for ten minutes to a local beach. How surprised we were to find out it was full of people ! People stared at us, as they did not believe that a Bride and Groom just came down to a beach. We took our chance and something that did not look like beautiful scenery, gave a great background for truly interesting photographs.
One of the Weddings that I will remember for long. Laura and David are truly special and very close to my heart. The Day could not have been better for them. I shall invite you to a story of the day. Do not forget to hit play to make that journey even more relaxing !
I would also like to thank to Paul from Camden Fort Meagher that supported us during the entire stay in Fort. It was truly enjoyable moments. Thank You.
Laura’s few words about the experience:
“I can’t express enough just how grateful I am to have found such a talented photographer to capture such special moments of our big day. Tomasz throughout the day you made us feel so relaxed it just made the time fly by and if we could have gotten away with spending more time taking pictures we would have. Every picture you’ve taken you’ve put in time and effort and it shows and you really have created a beautiful story for us to treasure.”
