Kilkenny / Fethard Co. Tipperary Wedding photography by Ni Riain Photography
October 4, 2012
Old Hollywood Glamour was the theme for the wedding of Pamela & Niall, I had great fun doing their wedding photos in the The Abbey Church Fethard and Hotel Kilkenny. I loved Pamela’s creative eye and attention to detail which shone through her wedding.
I loved using my new portable Studio lights run off battery, it brought out all the stunning detail in her dress that a flash on camera wouldn’t. Her dress was Pronovios “Fiona” in Jeutonic Bridal Kilkenny and Pamela “to make the dress my own I asked the shop to stitch on some beads onto the shoulder”
She wore and Ostrich feather wrap which for a winter wedding is both glamorous and warm.
The Brides Wedding Flowers were by Dot and Catherine Whelan – Sunflowers, Thurles Shopping Centre. “I wanted to keep things quite simple again with bouquets, Flower girl had a basket. Candelabra’s in the church, rose trees at entrance of church”
Pamela’s hair was done by well known Bridal mobile hairdresser Marie Hickey www.bridalhairbymarie.com her Hollywood styled makeup was by Yvonne Maher www.yvonnemaher.com
The furniture in Hotel Kilkenny lent itself to the wedding images. Brides love their shoes and Pamelas peep toe bridal shoes were from Pure & Precious
The Groom Niall and his brother Shane are well known for their love of horses.
