I have just received my lovely books from Loxley Colour to show some of my work off, the coffee table book is the large one. The print and binding quality are nothing short of what I would expect from any top notch publisher.
I also delivered a Bellissimo Classico album to a couple last week who’s wedding I shot in Dunboyne Castle, they were over the moon with it and with the set of mini albums they ordered to give to close family members as keepsakes of the day.
I prefer to use the Loxley albums as the finish and presentation is first class, the Classico storybook albums come in a stunning presentation box to protect it from dust and handling.
The software Loxley supply users with works really well, I always sit down and design your album so it does tell the story of your day. I take it personally when doing this because when I photograph your wedding day and you choose the pictures I remember when they were taken and what was happening, so if I put two images next to each other it’s for a reason not just because the colours match.
Check out these beautiful books and albums, they really are such nice things to handle both the coffee table book and the album lay flat when open so they are really easy to hold, Shane and Deborah asked me to add extra pages to their album to take it from ten spreads and twenty pages, upto twenty spreads and forty pages, and it was still really nice to handle.
The storybook wedding albums I produce for clients are as personal as taking the pictures, when you show the book to a friend or family it is as much a representation of me as the pictures in it, so I make double sure it’s right before I click ‘order’
You can see more images of the albums here:-

Shane and Deborah’s wedding came to me through a friend referal which is a nice way to get work, I had photographed Shane’s sister and her family a while ago, and when Shane popped the question they asked to see some of my work.
After meeting the couple, and visiting the stunning Dunboyne Castle Hotel I put a plan together of how I would work on the day. It was to be a civil ceremony and everything would take place in the hotel, with it being an October wedding I was glad about this!
The Day before was Glorious, but we weren’t blessed with the weather… so we worked hard to get some nice pictures inside the beautiful Dunboyne Castle hotel for Shane and Deborah.
Like I said the weather was poor on the day but I had been to the hotel to do my recce and made sure I had plenty of different locations to use should the day be wet outside, the hotel has a nice mix of new and old so it was easy to get plenty of different looking images.
We did manage to sneak 10 minutes out in the cold and grey, and managed to get some lovely shots in the soft failing light at the end of the day.
I always ask the couple for permission to use the images of their day on my site, most people are glad for them to be used but sometimes people would rather not and I respect that, Shane and Deborah were happy for me to use their pictures in my post, so here they are…. I hope you enjoy them.
Wedding at Dunboyne Castle, this venue is just inside County Meath and has stunning grounds out side and beautiful interiors from the contemporary newer part to the older section with it’s lovely stair case and large windows.
