Ross and John Wedding Day

Capturing Love: My Journey as a Gay Wedding Videographer


As the morning sun painted the lush Irish landscape with golden hues, I stood outside the gate lodge of Cabra Castle, my heart brimming with anticipation. Today was no ordinary day; it was a celebration of love, commitment, and joy. As a wedding videographer, I had the privilege of capturing every precious moment of Ross and John’s union.

Preparations at the Gate Lodge

Ross, the groom, was surrounded by laughter and excitement as he prepared for the day ahead. Bridesmaids flitted around him, adjusting ties and pinning boutonnieres. The air buzzed with nervous energy, and I discreetly captured these candid moments—the shared glances, the whispered words of encouragement.

John’s Preparations

Next, I moved to John’s room. There, amidst the camaraderie of groomsmen, I witnessed the bonds of friendship. Ties were straightened, cufflinks secured, and nerves masked with laughter. John’s eyes sparkled as he donned his suit, ready to meet his soulmate at the Granary.

The First Look

As the clock ticked closer to the ceremony, Ross and John stole a private moment at the back of the Granary. The sun filtered through ancient trees, casting a soft glow on their faces. Their eyes met, and time stood still. It was a first look filled with tenderness, vulnerability, and the promise of forever.

The Ceremony in the Granary

Inside the Granary, the air was fragrant with flowers—roses, lilies, and wild blooms. The couple exchanged vows under a rustic arch adorned with ivy. The celebrant spoke eloquently, weaving their love story into the fabric of the day. Tears flowed freely, and I discreetly wiped my own as I filmed their union.

Cabra Castle: A Majestic Backdrop

After the ceremony, we moved to Cabra Castle Hotel, nestled amidst rolling hills and ancient woodlands. The castle’s stone walls echoed with centuries of history, and its grounds were a photographer’s dream. We explored hidden nooks, capturing stolen kisses against ivy-covered walls and laughter under the ancient oaks.

A Brief Rain Shower

Nature, too, wanted to be part of this celebration. As if blessing their union, a gentle rain shower graced us. We seized the moment, creating a magical video on the castle grounds. Ross twirled John, raindrops clinging to their suits, and their love shone brighter than ever.

Sparklers and First Dance

As twilight settled, the reception hall glowed with warmth. Ross and John’s first dance was poetry in motion—a waltz of love and commitment. And then, as if the universe conspired to end the day on a high note, we lit sparklers. Their laughter echoed across the courtyard, illuminating the night.


As I packed my gear, I reflected on the privilege of witnessing love in all its forms. Ross and John’s wedding was more than an event; it was a testament to resilience, acceptance, and the power of love. And as I drove away from Cabra Castle, I carried their story with me—a story of two souls who found their forever amidst the ancient stones and blooming flowers.

Your moments, our artistry.
