I recently had the pleasure of filming this stunning Lough Rynn Castle wedding video for Emma Tuthill and John Ryan, who tied the knot on St. Patrick’s Day 2023. The beautiful ceremony took place in the picturesque Farnaught Church, followed by a grand reception at the magnificent Lough Rynn Castle nearby. As the couple exchanged their vows and celebrated their love, I had the honour of capturing every special moment on film, and I am thrilled to share their unforgettable day with you. From the breathtaking views to the heartfelt speeches, this wedding was truly a joy to witness and document. Here’s the wedding video preview film.
The wedding day started with a the bridal party preparation at the family home in Mohill, Co. Leitrim. There were a few light rain showers early in the morning but having two childs of Prague seemed to do the trick and the sun started peeping out! With the talented Irma Butkus on hair and Sarah Keogh on makeup it was a lovely relaxed morning. Bridesmaids were her sisters Sarah, Jayne, and Alice and they surprised the bride with a lovely poem. The atmosphere was filled with laughter, joy, and a sense of togetherness that truly set the tone for the rest of the day.
While Emma was getting ready at her family home, John and his best man, John Finnegan, along with his groomsmen Mark Bolger and Mark O’Rahelly, were getting prepped at Lough Rynn Castle. The atmosphere was lively and upbeat, with jokes and banter flying back and forth between the men. The groomsmen looked sharp in their suits, and John was the picture of a dapper groom. Even the couple’s dog, Freddy, got in on the action and the boys shared a joke and a beer while Freddy took centre stage
The wedding ceremony of Emma and John was held at Farnaught Church, just a few minutes away from Lough Rynn Castle. Emma arrived in style in dad Cecil’s vinatage car to the ceremony which was led by Canon Linda Frost and Fr Brian Conlon, who brought their warmth and wisdom to the proceedings. As the guests arrived, they were serenaded by the beautiful melodies of the Aria string quartet, adding a touch of elegance to the occasion. Emma and John’s family members also played an important role in the ceremony, contributing readings, prayers, and a reflection that added a personal and heartfelt touch to the proceedings.
After the wedding ceremony at Farnaught Church, Emma and John, along with their family and friends, made their way to Lough Rynn Castle for a day of celebration.
The talented Sligo based photographer Darek Novak was on hand to capture every moment of this special occasion. After taking some beautiful family photos at the church, the wedding party headed to the castle grounds for some casual photos, with the stunning backdrop of Lough Rynn Castle adding an extra touch of magic to the pictures. The guests then enjoyed a delightful drinks reception, accompanied by the melodic sounds of Harp Duets. As the drinks flowed and the merriment continued, the bell rang to signal the start of the meal. The guests made their way to the dining area for a sumptuous meal, followed by speeches.
Soon it was time for the party to get started properly and the band Late Night Radio soon had the music going and the lively crowd took to the dance floor.
Emma and John’s wedding day was truly a day to remember, and I feel honoured to have been videographer. Thank you for choosing me to create a Lough Rynn Castle wedding video that will capture the essence of this special day for years to come. It was a pleasure to witness and document the love and joy that surrounded you both on your wedding day. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, love, and laughter as you embark on this new journey together as husband and wife.
