On a thousand acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes this timeless wedding inspiration took place. CASTLE LESLIE in County Monaghan, Ireland is one of the last great Irish Castle estates still in the hands of its founding family. Since the 1660s the distinguished and somewhat individual Leslie family have lived on the Estate. They have welcomed everyone from politicians to poets, ambassadors to ufologists to world renowned celebrities. AMV RETREATS held a workshop there and took advantage of the beautiful horses they also have on the property and featured them in this editorial captured by Connecticut wedding photographer NICOLE DANIELLE STUDIOS. With florals by FROG PRINCE WEDDINGS and a beautiful paper suite by LAURA ELIZABETH PATRICK the scene was set for high voltage romance!

A big thank you to Connecticut wedding photographer NICOLE DANIELLE STUDIOS for sharing this beautiful inspiration with us. "I’m a New England based destination wedding photographer with an insatiable desire to be seaside. Even when I’m not documenting love stories, I’m likely still settled behind the lens taking photos. Whether I’m walking the cobblestone streets of Italy with gelato in hand, dipping my toes in the North Sea of the Netherlands or wandering down the street for a New England lobster roll, I’m pushing the shutter — freezing — moments in time. Having traveled to over 12 countries and counting, I am passionate about creating experiences that feel well-lived in and well-captured. While adventures abroad can certainly awaken the soul, there’s really nothing quite like home. For me, that’s seaside alongside my 75lb. Goldador — and a glass of cabernet.
