Wedding of Patrina Peacock and Conor Moran in Ballyroan, Co. Laois and Lyrath Hotel, Co. Kilkenny | Laois Wedding Photographer


I recently covered the wedding of Patrina Peacock and Conor Moran in Ballyroan, Co. Laois. The church was recently renovated and the parish did an amazing job with the lighting which led to a fantastic back drop for photos. We then went to the beautiful Lyrath hotel in Kilkenny for the reception. We were able to use the lovely lake in the grounds of the hotel for the wedding photos. It was an amazing venue and the couple had spend a lot of time getting extra things done to the room to create a perfect atmosphere for the reception. It was a fantastic night and lively eighties band got the crowd rocking just as I was leaving! Patrica Fitzpatrick was a great help to me on the day as a 2nd photographer and as a assistant.

    Hi we are getting married Thursday 9th June in Kinnitty Church followed by a reception in Kinnitty Castle. Our budget is quite tight just wondering what is the very best you could do for us. Thanks, Aimee
