“Every bride is beautiful. It’s like newborn babies or puppies. They can’t help it.” ― Emme Rollins
Most women dream about being a bride since they are little girls. And they always look outstanding on their wedding day. It is certainly one of the greatest pleasures for a photographer to capture these moments for the bride, her husband-to-be and their family.
The photoshoot preparation started early in the morning in Cork city at Hair Passion, styling our beautiful model Ruth. Dominika, one of the most creative hair stylists I’ve ever met, did the soft upstyle and Karolina looked after the make up. Karolina was on set all day with us – and trust me, it was a long day – and looked after all styling aspects and even took on the role of assistant as my other assistants had to leave due to other engagements, and from here I would like to thank Thorsten for being my assistant for a day!
WEST CORK – INCHYDONEY ISLAND
After the morning preparations we arrived to Fernhill House Hotel in Clonakilty, West Cork where we got ready for the main part of the photoshoot, the actual photo taking. It was a cold but beautiful day and I could not have been happier with the light at Inchydoney beach where I took photographs of Ruth. Flawless make up and hair by Karolina, headpieces from Hair Passion, fabulous and one of a kind gowns by Sue Pearce, jewellery from Azure in Cork and beautiful flowers by Indigo & Evergreen Floral Design together created these amazing bridal looks.
The first look was very feminine and delicate. It was quite windy at the beach which worked really well for capturing the long veil in all its beauty.
The second and third looks were inspired by vintage fashion and were shot near the channel at Inchydoney. No wind, just peace and quite. And a beautiful golden hour.
I must say it was a great pleasure to work with such a professional team. Of course it is important to know what you’re doing and do it well but it is also very important to have fun while doing it. Remember to always have positive people around you who you can be creative with and who you can laugh with. After all this is what matters most in life.
