I have been lucky enough to be invited to photograph many memorable weddings. Tara O’Farrell and Daniel Anderson’s was no exception. From start to finish their day was perfect .
Tara is known around the country as one of Ireland’s leading make-up artists and models. Her husband Daniel Anderson, is a singer–songwriter making waves in his own right. It was a pleasure to be involved as their wedding photographer, along side many of their well known friends including fashionista, Pippa O’Connor.
The couple met on a night out in Whelans–which seems a perfect meeting place for this model/musician twosome.
Tara and Daniel held their wedding ceremony and reception on the fantastic grounds of Carton House in Co. Kildare. There was plenty of attention to detail during the morning. From the matching bathrobes provided for the whole wedding party by Robes For You, to the flawless make-up on the day by Paula Callan. Tara was a breath–taking vision in white in her wedding dress from Folkster . Her bridal look was made all the more complete with her jaw dropping Chanel earrings, right down to her purse and wedding shoes by Jimmy Choo.
Making the morning even more memorable was a pre–wedding gift Tara received from Daniel. The whole wedding party gathered around while Tara opened a jewellery box revealing a spectacular ruby ring.
Opulent white wedding flowers by Frog Prince surrounded the rooms of Carton House and also cascaded up the aisle which was accented by candle light. There was also a near 6 foot tall heart display decadently lined with hundreds of Ferrero Rocher chocolates which certainly kept the guests happy. The couples humanist ceremony was full of laughter, love and of course an emphasis on the carefully selected music.
The wedding guests mingled on the stunning ground of Carton House, making sure to make use of the days stunning weather by celebrating in the manicured gardens . They then retired to the regally decorated reception hall for the rest of the nights festivities including music by the wedding band The Classic Beatles.
It was pleasure to be part of this special day and I am happy to be able to post a blog about it. Seems I’m not the only one, as VIP and Xpose Magazine wasted no time publishing their own reports on the stunning event. Can’t say I blame them. Congratulations again Tara & Daniel!
