” Darren we’re obsessed with the slideshow, we absolutely love it! “

As a wedding photographer based on Lough Derg myself, I am very fortunate to live close by some of the most beautiful and unique venues in the country and Coolbawn Quay is right up there with the best of them. Coolbawn Quay is hidden away on the shores of Lough Derg in North Tipperary and is the perfectly picturesque waterside setting. It’s such an incredible setting to get married in, and Cáit and Gary enjoyed the most wonderful day with their family and friends in this idyllic waterside setting.



Morning Preparations in the Cottages

Cáit and Gary both got ready in the cosy cottages in Coolbawn Quay. While hair Cáit and the girls enjoyed their morning in the cosy cottage, Gary and the guys took a dip in the waters of Lough Derg before getting suited up.

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

In warm afternoon light, Cáit and Gary exchanged vows on the waterside decking of Coolbawn Quay in a beautiful outdoor humanist wedding ceremony.

Outdoor Reception

After the ceremony the adults relaxed with a drink in hand overlooking Lough Derg, with the kids played with garden games in the fresh air. When the light was right we took a few minutes to stroll around the waters edge and created some beautiful portraits. The brilliant thing about Coolbawn Quay is you can skim a stone from one amazing spot to the next for photos, everything is simply a matter of feet away.

Outdoor Speeches

Speeches outdoors before the meal are just brilliant. I’ve seen this more and more over the last couple of years and whether they are inside or outside, it gives a more relaxed feeling, which perfectly suits the vibe of Coolbawn Quay.

Evening Time in the Lakeshore Pavilion

Cáit, Gary and their family & friends spent the evening wining and dining in the gorgeous Lakeshore Pavilion at Coolbawn Quay before the dancefloor filled to the sounds of the Ian Hendrix Band as they danced the night away.
