Just after uploading these images of Frank and Sara's wedding in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire on Friday just gone. The ceremony was in the Holy Cross church in Dundrum. The weather was very blustery which created some difficult conditions within which to photograph in, although thankfully it was not the severe snow we have seen of late. Does this look like Dublin in mid gale swing?. Both Frank and Sara were remarkably relaxed and a pleasure to work with. The day went smoothly and we stayed until the first dance to capture the spirit of their wedding. Winter weddings are difficult to work at times but this wedding was a sheer pleasure. Experience helps the seasoned photographer make difficult decisions easier for all concerned and I thank Frank and Sara for their attitude and gentle disposition. I know that they will have a great honeymoon.
This is my 2010/2011 Wedding Portfolio. The photographs are personally chosen from many, the aim being to capture emotion and real life in each photograph. I am an artist and I see things uniquely (just as we all do) so have a look and call me for a wee chat regarding your wedding day. You will be pleasantly surprised: 087 2861544 or www.aidanoliver.com

Sometimes you are away for a break, it might be Sheffield, Cardiff or Edinburgh - this time it is London, Brick Lane in fact. There is so much to see, taste and view, a veritable microcosm within the pulsing heart of a busy city once known as Londinium.
The face on the wall looks familiar, someone famous, a DJ or an actor? - not quite sure who but I certainly would be enlightened to know. This shot was taken on the 30th December 2007, a night away from New Years Eve where the Yuletide celebrations were still in full flow. It has a strangely calming effect on me each time I see it.
