International Wedding Photographer – Destination Weddings in Co. Galway, Ireland

If you’re wondering where I’ve been & what I’ve been up to this summer & why haven’t I been working…

After Andrew & Abbie’s Wilmington Destination Wedding in early June, I left the States & spent a month & a half in Ireland where I did some consulting work for a pair of Wedding Photographers from Co. Galway, Ireland & I photographed THREE Weddings in Ireland while I was at it! 🙂

While I was in Ireland, I was still taking care of business remotely!

I edited Andrew & Abbie’s Wedding Photos, answered emails, corresponded with clients & booked Fall, Winter & Spring 2016 Weddings!!!

So, I WAS working, just not in Asheville! 😉

I LOVED every, single second of my time in Ireland & one of my fondest memories was my very first Irish Wedding!

Tommy & Michelle were Married on June 12th, 2015

{three days after I landed in Ireland}!

It was SO neat to experience Irish marriage traditions, they’re similar to American traditions but there are some big differences to note:

***

While many American’s choose to tie the knot in venue’s beyond a church {mountain tops, barns, gardens, country clubs, resorts & other lavish venues created specifically for Weddings}

1. The Irish typically get Married in Churches or Cathedrals.

While many American Wedding Ceremonies are finished in 20 minutes {tops}

2. The Irish take part in a Wedding Day {full} Mass where Ceremonies typically last about an hour, give or take!

Because of this, one gets the sense that the commitment is more serious somehow…

While American Wedding guests tend to dress a little more casual-dressy for Weddings

3. The Irish really go ALL OUT!!! It’s like a Fashion Show! 😉

{3-4 piece suits, beautiful dresses with the perfect hat & bag to match & sky high heels!}

 American’s throw big parties after the Ceremony to Celebrate – called ‘Receptions’

4. The Irish throw BIG PARTIES after the Ceremony to Celebrate – called ‘Afters’

While American Weddings are about the Couple & Celebrating the union with family & friends

5. The Irish make Wedding Day more centered around Family & the joining of Families…

it’s difficult to explain, it somehow just {feels} more family centered.

More about that on the next post {Allen & Michelle’s Tuam, Ireland Wedding, later this week!} 🙂

For now, enjoy a few images from Tommy & Michelle’s Big Day!
