This wedding will forever hold a piece of my heart. I will never forget the day John came into my office, sat down in front of my desk and began describing various reason why he and his fiance Alex would no longer be getting married in Kingston, Ontario. I genuinely believed he was telling me that the wedding had been called off. However, John’s visit resulted in an invitation to an Irish castle to photograph their intimate wedding. After a quick visit to Ireland over Christmas, John and his beautiful bride, Alex, decided they would commit their lives to one another in the most rainy, beautiful place in the world, Dromcollogher, Ireland. The keepers of the castle, Betty and Jonathan Sykes, promised that they would finish restoring the 15th century tower on site for their one of a kind ceremony. A promise they kept, between the acoustics and the soft light pouring through the stain glass windows, it was every bit as magical as it sounds.
Both myself, and my husband were very aware that opportunities like this don’t come along very often, and we did our best to soak in every moment of this experience (like we try and tell all our couples every weekend). From the peacock affectionately called Steve who wandered the property, to the ethereal woodlands that surrounded the castle, our week spent with John and Alex felt like a dream.
