      Describe your company in 3 words?   Relaxed, Down-to-earth & creative. (I know, that’s 5 words)    What is your wedding day must have?   A bunch of bananas for energy and with a bit of luck my sunglasses.    What inspires you daily?   My inspiration comes from my clients and family, I’m lucky to be doing what I love as my job. Their energy, enthusiasm and support keep me striving to become better every day.    Why are Irish Brides/Grooms the best?   They’ll do what it takes regardless of the weather to get great pictures. Our climate can be unpredictable at times but Irish couples are made of sterner stuff.   What is best thing about your job?  Meeting so many great people on a happy day, you can’t help being happy when you are surrounded by happy people. It’s a satisfying job, especially when clients write to you afterwards singing your praises.    What's the best way to get in touch with you?   Email is best  des@desrowan.com  initially but there’s nothing quite like having a chat on the phone or meeting face-to-face.     #MEETTHEMAKERS

      Light and White  Taking inspiration from simplicity and light, this styled shoot was inspired by crisp whites and ivory, minimalist styling, copper and gold metallic table accents, softened with wispy green foliage and soft neutral florals. we absolutely adore this style and it was a look we were eager to recreate, however we were keen to add a softer feminine side in order to show couples how this look can be interpreted to create a stylish yet pretty wedding theme.   For this shoot we wanted a space that provided a backdrop for this pared down styling and would help bring all the design elements together - Orange Tree House was the perfect location.  When we visited for the first time we were blown away by the stunning landscape, and being on the edge of the ocean provides a stunning quality of light which floods through the huge arched windows and illuminates the room. Internally, the rough stone interior lent itself well to the simple almost industrial backdrop we were looking for.
