Hens and the Hummer!

Had a blast with these ladies who came all the way from the North for a photo shoot with us in the Ardilaun Hotel in Galway. The weather was blustery and rainy unfortunately but the spirits were high! These gals travelled in style all the way to Galway in a HUMMER! Here I was waiting to get the shots of them inside the Hummer when the driver was unable to swing the car into the gates of the hotel due to the size of it! Some traffic chaos later the ladeez had to hop ship and walk down with luggage in tow to the reception, brollies blowing but in fits of laughter. Managed to grab a shot of the hen Ms 'B' on her way in even though she had NO CLUE as to why I was there snapping her like the papparazi! The penny dropped a short time later when she was led into the room greeted with Bubbly, goodies (the girls brought a menagerie of sweets and chocolates and yummy things!) and her own photo studio with two makeup artists waiting to transfom her! A bit of drinking, makeup and posing ensued and eventually we got the group shots of the gang before they headed out to 'The city' to make their mark. I could not say enough good things about the Ardilaun who attended to our every whim and helped me carry out and in my gear. (Managed the shoot with a creak in my neck!?)  They are well set up for hen parties and could not have been more obliging. Big thanks also to Theresa Danaher and Trish Kenneally on makeup duties and of course the lovely ladies who made the event so much fun. Thanks for booking us Ciara x
Check out the cute shoes!

The stunning Bride to be!

What's on offer at the Wedding Fair?

Boudoir Girls are really looking forward to teaming up with Heaven Scent this saturday at the House Hotel for this exclusive Hen and Wedding Expo. Many select vendors will be offering discounts and competitions including ourselves. We will be offering discount flyers on the day for all you Ladies for Boudoir and Makeover shoots should you wish to treat yourself (or him!) You will be able to see some of our corsets, wigs and accessories on the day - the stand will be very girly indeed! I will be bringing along the camera and some lighting for those who wish to have a portrait taken after their makeover and a cocktail at the bar! The house hotel is a Boutique styled venue which is why we love it. It is ideal for photographing in from my perspective and a beautiful cosy and feminine place to have a drink with 'the girlies'! Enclosed are some promo snaps I took  for the event. The stunning models were Mary Lee, Sinead Lally and Victoria Stephens. Thanks to Costello's for bringing down the beautiful Beauford car which was perfect for the theme. (Classy Wedding\Fun and classy Hen!) Also thanks to Margaret in the hotel who ran uptown for the beautiful bouquet and Rococo for the loan of the stunning pink dress. The other wedding dress is VERA WANG ladies how careful we were that day with it! ;)
Hope to see you all there!

Ladies night!

Here are two fab women that decided to have a weekend of shopping and beauty for themselves in Galway. The amazing Sandra Gillen and myself arrived at the Ardilaun hotel with our gear and set to work in the room! We had some giggles and chats and dressing up while Sandra worked her magic. I then photographed them both individually and as a two-some.  Here is a peek at the 'after' shots - well done ladies ye were a blast!
