Beach Bride™ – an unforgettable bridal shoot

There’s something enchanting in the dramatic beauty of the seaside. The beach isn’t all about buckets and spades: if you’re going to the beach any time soon, do what I’ll be doing and find a quiet spot, watch the waves, see the life and spirit of nature out there. Sometimes there’s nothing more fascinating than the wild beaches around our shores.

I have another breathtaking collection of photographs for you, this time with a seaside twist. Photos and words by Chris Hanley Photography

Anne-Marie is from the south coast of Ireland, a little village about 25 mins south of Waterford. Anne-Marie and Richard wanted a little bit of Ireland at their wedding.

They went to the beach where Anne-Marie spent her childhood. They collected pebbles as name place settings for their guests.
