Wedding at Tankardstown House

As in Ireland Wedding Photographer, I must say that Tankardstown house is one of those most stunning wedding Venues in Ireland. The light is gorgeous and the beautiful garden fits perfectly in every single shot!

If you are planning to get married at Tankardstown house for an indoor or an outdoor ceremony and have no clear idea about where to celebrate your wedding in Meath, take my word that this is a perfect place for it. Even in a rainy days the light filled orangery provides a lot of daylight and is super spacious.

Tankardstown house is one of those super wedding venues that was transformed magnificently into an absolute beauty. For winter weddings – the fireplaces in the rooms at the main house combine like nothing else – a super warm, fantastic and festive atmosphere. Offering a complete blank canvas style space for the couples. Their famous Orangery is an amazing option on a rainy day, or winter.

The wedding started on a beautiful Spring sunny day, where at 9am in the morning it was nice and crisp. Outdoor Weddings are always a joy for any wedding photographer that loves capturing natural frames and this was an outdoor wedding, which I was very much looking forward to.

rather than a traditional cake cutting shot, Khaiyisha and Neill decided to come up with a very interesting and photographically challenging idea of lighting lanterns with their close family and guests. OMG this moment was sooo magical! I still remember the calmed and loving atmosphere ant the deep emotions that they both had while doing this together.

Definitely one of the most memorable weddings I’ve photographed. And I could not thank both Khaiyisha and Neill enough for trusting me in capturing their memories. Also I want to give a massive “Thank You” to all the wedding suppliers involved, who did a superb job in looking after the newlyweds.

The Venue

18th Century House and Gardens that are magnificently turned into one of Meath’s TOP Wedding Venues. Perhaps also one of the best in Ireland? Tankardstown House capacity is 50 to 250 guests. The venue is exclusive to the couple that hire it for their special day. They are working hard to make your day special and they do a great job on it. I guess there are many things that could be listed when speaking of Tankardstown House as a wedding venue and the reviews are great from past couples. One of the most important values is their attention to detail, food and perfectionism for those that like their day just perfect!

Morning Preparations at the Boyne House Slane

Here the bride and groom planned to get ready in the same place (apart, but close). The Boyne House in Slane, Co Meath offers a cozy ambiance that fits somehow between being timeless and dreamlike at the same time, it is just unique. The natural light coming from the windows is soothing and evenly spread out, making everything look just beautiful. Catching candids of her hair and makeup was superb, and the house offers a lot of creative freedom for moving around and creating lovely compositions that enhance the storytelling vibe of the final batch. And I might have spent too much time shooting the dress, but I simply couldn’t resist that warm and soothing light.

The Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The magical outdoor ceremony was setup in the garden. Emotional wedding promises from both the bride and groom.

Family Photos

Family photos are very important part of every wedding, although not many people think they are exciting. I can tell – they can be fun and efficient if planned to be so. Here at the Tankardstown wedding grounds we had a planned list of family members to attend to family photo part and we had lots of fun and relaxed picture taking.

Portraits at Tankardstown Gardens

Tankardstown house is endless for doing wedding portraits as the possibilities are truly endless. They have massive tall trees, that look stunning and majestic in any weather conditions. The well maintained gardens create a perfect backdrop for high variety of photographs. The interesting thing is that you actually do not need to spend much time with your wedding photographer doing portraits as it is all there within 2 minutes of a walk, out of sight of guests. This gives the couple to have their own little break, while having a walk around the gardens and capturing stunning portraits.

Wedding Reception

The space at the house provide a very warm welcoming atmosphere. Open plan terrace for those days that are warmer and comfortable atmosphere inside the house on a wet days. On a spring day like this, the weather was fabulous and guests could enjoy their drinks outside. Orangery was decorated for the dinner and there was a lot of day light coming from the glass roof, which is providing extra spacious feel.


Lanterns in the Evening

Lanterns were the choice for the newlyweds instead of traditional cake cutting. This created such a warm atmosphere with everyone around enjoying this moment.
