Liz & Tim, Finnstown House, Co. Dublin

The day started off Sunny as I arrived in Malahide early on the morning of Liz and Tims wedding- I stopped off to take in the beauty and serenity of the harbour...before I arrived to Lizs house where a fry was cooking and the atmosphere was  buzzing with hair and make up and family members calling in all morning. Liz and Tim tied the knot in Dublins Unitarian Church on Saint Stephens Green. The rain lashed down as Liz arrived.  It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony they were then whisked off to Finnstown House which provided a superb backdrop for their wedding photos where the sun came out especially for us. I wish this totally fabulous couple every happiness on their onward journey. x

Honeymoon Destination A week in Lanzerote, back to Dublin briefly for a hurling championship match (which Tim won :o) suitcases repacked for the next leg ! ..... that being a self drive road-trip in California, making our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles over 2 weeks .... all fabulous :o)

And Words of advice for brides and groom:
Don't stress over the small stuff coming up to your big day, the party will happen, everyone will enjoy themselves, regardless if the details are perfect or not. Do the best you can and trust what you can't do will work itself out. Treasure every minute of your wedding day, your journey towards each other and all the excitement that brings you to the day, when you both meet and embrace, and are joined "together as one", and in front of your family and closest friends. Save every minute to memory, after all it is the most special and important day of your lives, and it signifies the beginning of your new life together. And to keep a marriage brimming with love - don't sweat the small stuff, never go to bed angry, and when you are wrong, admit it and when you are right, shut up ... :)

The Labour Ward

It's lambing season, one of the busiest times of the year for my Dad and brother. I love these busy weeks, there are so many snapping opportunities. It never ceases to amaze me to see the birth of a new lamb even though I've seen it so many times. Feast your eyes here on some newborn lambs in the labour ward. 

Still wet from it’s transition from mother to world and covered with loose straw, it blinked its eyes and let out nearly inaudible little bleats as it tried to get to its feet. Mum was close by, not overly concerned that I was lying in the straw just a few inches away from her baby.
My niece Laura reaches out a helping hand to a newly born lamb seconds old while her Dad delivers his siblings Lambs 2 and 3!!

24 hours later the lambs are ready to make the transition from labour ward to open fields... there is some separation anxiety for the few minutes it takes to get to the destination.
