I get photograph some pretty cool weddings at many new places I haven’t visited before. When my mate Patrick asked me to photograph Him & Laura on their wedding day at Killruddery House I was delighted to discover their venue was a little gem in Wicklow. Both are super chilled and down to earth which I think reflect in their photos.

He Wishes for Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

– W. B. Yeats


Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;

Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.

And yet all this comes down when the job’s done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.

So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me

Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall
Confident that we have built our wall.

Seamus Heaney
