It's fair to say that working in the west of Ireland, you come across a few grooms who aren't all that turned on by photography and don't enjoy "working the camera" in America's Next Top Model style. Declan definitely didn't fit into that category - he was very confortable strutting his stuff in front of the lens, while the beautiful Katie is always going to look good on camera.
We had a stop at Westport House en route to the hotel. The wind whipped Katie's veil off, but Declan was quick to the rescue. It's a beautiful location to take photographs; I'd love to get back there in 2012 on a warm Summer's day. Then we had a quick whistlestop tour of the winecellar and swimming pool in Knockranny House before dinner & dancing.
