A Luttrellstown Castle Wedding in Sunny December

A Luttrellstown Castle Wedding by The Fennells

It was us, the bride, the groom, and Netflix. This is a great story of how two solicitors fell in love and their wedding is below, but as well as planning a wedding, Killian had started Irelands first wildlife sanctuary called Wild Ireland Sanctuary. They chose Dublin for their amazing Luttrellstown Castle wedding and we had the pleasure of photographing and filming their big day. A wedding that would feature on a documentary on Netflix.

We were intrigued with these two. Killian has a degree in zoology and a serious love for animals. He created Wild Ireland, which focuses on animals once native to Ireland, such as bears, wolves and lynxes and it opened in October last year. He set up the Wild Ireland Sanctuary. The lovely Katie is a incredibly successful solicitor and now a mum. The two of them are so lovely and a super team.

The musician was a special gift from Katie to Killian for the moment they entered Luttrellstown Castle. He would start to play the theme song from Jurassic Park, as a way to celebrate the new Wildlife Sanctuary Ireland.
