One Fine Day

LEOMARKWEDDING01

Leo and Mark Kinsella-O’Shaughnessy were the first same-sex couple to announce their engagement in the Irish Times, after the successful Marriage Equality referendum on May 22nd last year. A year later, and we are just back from their amazing celebration – in blazing French-Riviera-style sunshine – at Castle Leslie, for which I had the honour of designing their invitations and wedding stationery.

LEOMARKWEDDING02

In the immortal words of Brendon Marczan, ‘If this is the new normal, where one throws a celebration for 200 of your family and closest friends, where you get married at a castle where a Beatle married his supermodel girlfriend, then that’s a ‘normal’ I’m glad to be part of!

Rathmullan House – 50 years in business

TIMELINEfinal 2This October, Rathmullan House, a beautiful country house hotel on the shores of Lough Swilly, marked fifty years of being in business. To celebrate the occasion, the Wheeler family commissioned me to produce a fold out booklet – one side of which shows a landscape of the hotel as it is today, the other showing a history of the hotel and the Wheeler Family from the 1960’s to the present. Probably one of the most complex projects I have ever worked on and I’m really proud of the final result.
