Aoife + Brian | Kinnitty Castle Hotel Offaly | Dublin wedding photographer

Aoife & Brian
Date | 21.09.13

We recently had the pleasure to shoot this wonderful wedding of Aoife and Brian at Kinnitty Castle Hotel, Co.Offaly. From the moment we met Aoife and Brian we knew this was going to be a great wedding to shoot. Aoife and Brian had a music themed wedding which gave us loads of opportunities to be creative. The weather on the day was everything a photographer could ask for, beautiful warm sunshine which gave us the perfect conditions for shooting inside and outside.

On our route to Kinnitty Castle Hotel, we stopped off at our pre planned location of Moydrum Castle in Athlone. Keeping with the theme of the day, Moydrum Castle is where U2 once famously shot their cover photos for their album “The Unforgettable Fire”. As you can see for yourself the back drop of the castle makes for some amazing photos.

After our adventure in Moydrum Castle we head on our way over to the wonderful Kinnitty Castle Hotel. There are few places in Ireland that you get to shoot a wedding in which really lends itself to some of the most stunning images, Kinnitty Castle Hotel is up there with the best. The beautiful warm sunny day just kept giving which in turn allowed Aoife & Brian’s guest to enjoy the wonderful courtyard for their drinks reception.



Thank you Aoife & Brian for allowing us at to shoot your special day. Congratulations to you both from all here at Frainphoto.
