CLONABREANY HOUSE WEDDING – HOLLY & DANIEL

Holly and Daniel’s Clonabreany House wedding took place on a glorious late winter day last month. The house opened in 2009 after a major restoration of the 18th-century estate manager’s house and courtyards and is located at Crossakiel, County Meath.

After wedding prep, their ceremony kicked off in the beautiful ceremony room at Clonabreany House. They closed their ceremony with a “Jump the Broom” exit. Jumping over the broom is an old wedding tradition where both the bride and the groom jump over a broom together during the ceremony. This action is a symbolic ‘sweeping away’ of past worries and concerns, making way for new beginnings.

Clonabreany House provided a wonderful backdrop for Holly and Daniel’s wedding. Daniel is Irish and Holly is Canadian. They travelled all the way from Canada with many of their guests in tow and were rewarded after their long journey with wonderful low winter sunlight. As a wedding photographer, this kind of light on a wedding day just adds another element to the photography.

With everything happening at Clonabreany House, the day had a very relaxed feel to it. The guests were in the good hands of all the excellent Clonabreany staff. Holly’s wonderful smile beamed throughout the day and there is an obvious spark between her and Daniel. As always I captured the day with minimal intrusion, simply letting the story of the day unfold.

Andrew from Eyecapture was again with me on the day and you can check out his super wedding film of the day here.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
