The Honan Chapel on the grounds of University College Cork is (if I’m not mistaken) probably one of the busiest wedding locations in Cork. But hold on now, before you go booking the picturesque setting for your big day, you have to be either a student, a graduate or a staff member. It’s probably the most ideal location as far as wedding photography is concerned. A thirty second walk from the church door and you’re within spitting distance of all the scenery you’ll need for your wedding photos. From there, it’s a short (or for some people a long) hop to the hotel of your choosing for the rest of the party. Had the pleasure of shooting a wedding in the Honan last weekend in gorgeous sunshine when we wanted it and subdued, soft light when we needed it. It’s nice to be able to look at a set of photos and be completely pleased at what you’ve shot. Even more so because the couple were so relaxed and just plain nice & cheerful on the day!
Walking into St. Carthage’s in Lismore, Waterford. The cathedral, which dates back to the 17th century, is under a lot of restoration and renovation work inside but that in no way detracts from the splendidly cavernous experience you get once you walk in. It sits on well kept grounds in a very peaceful area of Lismore town. Well worth a visit.
