Brenda & Martin were married last month at The Ice House in Ballina, Co. Mayo. The original Ice House was built almost a decade before the Great Famine, in 1836, and overlooks The River Moy and its meandering estuary. This was my first visit to this beautiful wedding venue and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Brenda and Martin had a humanist ceremony, followed by a reception under a radiant West of Ireland sun. Celebrations continued into the small hours of the morning to the sound of Spring Break, one of my own favourite wedding bands. Finally, a special thank you to the staff at the Ice House, who kept me fed and watered throughout the day. Your kindness was much appreciated. So, here we go, a selection of authentic wedding photographs telling the story of Brenda & Martin’s wedding in Ballina. Hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed taking them, and feel free to leave a comment below.
