Megan + Max | Springfield Castle, Ireland

Megan and Max knew they wanted a destination wedding, the only problem was they could not find a location that felt quite right. When they could not settle on the perfect Caribbean resort, they thought that perhaps they were not looking in the right place. And then Ireland came to mind. With ample golfing for Max and beautiful scenery to suit Megan, the country that neither had ever visited suddenly hit the mark. And just like that, a beach wedding turned into an Irish castle wedding.

Nothing could have prepared Daniel and I for the stunning landscapes and rustic charm of Ireland. Springfield castle, complete with resident peacocks, was definitely one of the most unique locations we have photographed yet… even without any ghostly encounters (much to my disappointment!). On the wedding day, I was happy to play double duty and jump in to do Megan’s makeup – a real testament to this bride’s low-key nature! Megan and Max chose to have their ceremony in the former dungeon, which happens to be the oldest part of the castle, dating back to the 13th century. The space’s dark and moody feel was the perfect contrast to Megan and Max’s joy; shared by everyone in attendance. Following the ceremony, Megan and Max’s intimate group of 15 gathered in the parlor for traditional Irish mead (quite tasty, we thought!) and then feasted on a meal prepared entirely of local – and delicious! – ingredients.

A visit to Ireland simply would not have been complete without a tour of the stunning cliffsides the country is known for, so the day after the wedding, we all piled into a bus and headed off to explore the Dingle Peninsula. With breathtaking views consisting of rolling hills, cliffs, ocean, sheep, and the classic dry stone walls, we could not resist the temptation to grab a few more portraits of Megan and Max. Keen to be a part of it, they literally changed in the back of the bus and trekked through wind and lumpy grass to give us just a few more images!

Thank you, Megan and Max, for allowing us to join your intimate group of 15, for braving the elements for a few more portraits, and for trusting us with the task of capturing your wedding weekend memories.
