Emma & Robert


On New Year’s Eve 2019, we had the honour of capturing Emma and Robert’s beautiful festive wedding at The Keadeen Hotel.
Below are some favourite moments captured by us throughout their special day.

The Preparations

The day began as all good weddings should, with laughter, twinkly lights and of course, lots of bubbles! 
The morning was a buzz of activity and fun as Emma and her bridal party began their preparations.
The connection between Emma and her bridesmaids was evident as they played their part in creating a calming atmosphere for the bride.

Over at Robert’s, excitement was building and nerves were eased with bottles of beer, as he and his groomsmen got ready for the day.

The ceremony

Later at the church, guests gathered in anticipation and the altar shone beautifully with Christmas lights.
Notes of “From This Moment On” filled the room, as Emma and her father made those first excited steps down the aisle.

It was an emotion-filled ceremony with words of love from friends and family.
Following the ceremony, the couple made a quick pitstop to their home to celebrate with their fur babies, Ellie & Hendrix. They were met with excited wagging tails!

The venue

Arriving at the venue, we took full advantage of the clear December sky & beautiful grounds at The Keadeen Hotel with relaxed and joyful shots of the bridal party.
With guests warming up inside, we spent some time alone with the couple exploring the grounds in search of the perfect shot.

The Reception

Frank Sinatra’s “I Love You Baby” boomed as the newly wed couple entered the dining room.
The entire room erupted in a sing-a-long, the perfect start to an evening of celebrations!

Laughter filled the room and the tissues came out, as the wedding party took the mic for the speeches.

The couple, surrounded by their bridal party, embraced for their first dance, “Flying Without Wings” by Westlife.
Looking around the room, we felt the strong love and connection that the guests and couple had for each other.

As the evening grew darker, the group gathered outside and lit up the sky with sparklers.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1!

The night ended with a countdown. A countdown to a new year and the beginning of Emma & Robert’s new life as husband and wife.
We want to give a huge thank you to Emma & Robert for allowing us to capture their beautiful day. We wish them a Tanta felicità (tons of happiness for the future)!
