Victoria & Richard The Station House Hotel

Winter Wedding at the Station House Kilmessan

Truly Life has those moments that come full circle. I started out as a photographer and would get my film processed at the Lab. A little communal hub of like minded crazy photographers. There I met David, fondly known as Dave. An expert printer.


He asked me to shoot a family portrait with his wife Ita, two kids Sam and Victoria. And now here I am photographing Victoria and Richard’s Winter Wedding at the Station House Kilmessan.


With a family background, passionate for Irish Railways, it was a given to choose their Winter Wedding at the Station House in Kilmessan. Ever optimistic, this couple though it was January, planned an outdoor ceremony at the train turntable in the woods performed by their good personal friend Áine Nerney. And guess what all the stars were aligned that day, as they got perfect winter sunshine.


And with their close friends Val and Zoe performing the live music, Richard became “Wifey-for-Lifey” to Victoria. With Victoria’s parents putting up with Richard and his kettle bells living with them during a pandemic and Richard’s mum knitting Victoria a Michael Tea Higgins tea cosy- they were welcomed into each family.  All the family and friends were excited to witness the Winter Wedding at the Station House.


With a quick change of shoes, outdoor photos took place to the setting sun in the Station House woodland among the twinkling lights. To some by the Signal House, with kitchen staff photobombing!! The two of them never stopped smiling. Our last photo of the Winter Wedding at the Station House had to be Richards mum’s handknit replica of them both.


With a train never staying too long in one station, we know this Station House wedding couple will continue on their journey together with many more adventures.
