We’re delighted to say that we have set our dates for not only our next Enchanted Forest and Wizarding Workshop events, but for all events in 2017! Demand is so high for these special magical portraits that have started booking for the rest of the year. NO FURTHER DATES WILL BE ADDED in 2017. As the famous ad says, ‘when they’re gone, they’re gone!’

The Enchanted Forest is a magical fairy & elf experience and photoshoot which takes place in our lifesized forest set in our studio. Turn your children into fairies and elves while they play and walk away with stunning fine art portraits that you’ll treasure for years to come. Each session can accommodate up to 3 children of all ages. We have all of the costumes and accessories, just bring yourselves!

Aimed at older children (and adults alike!) The Wizarding Workshop is a movie set experience for the Harry Potter fans in your life! The children play the part of an actor playing a wizard or witch in a scene from a fantasy movie. The set is a beautiful wizards office in a towere, filled with magical details such as a crystal ball, wans, magic books and ingredients such as Ogre Snot! (may or may not be real Ogre Snot!)

Each of these  magical sessions cost just €50 to book, which comes off whichever package you choose after you see your portraits. The packages start at just €240. Each session type has exclusive products tailored to the look of the images. To see detailed packages for the Enchanted Forest see here. And for The Wizarding Workshop packages see here. 

Here are the dates for 2017, including one weekend only in Cork city! :

Fairytale wedding in Kettles Country House, Swords, Co Dublin

We held it together until the vows. It’s ok though, everyone else was crying too.

We first met Kassie & Jay at a wedding fair in their future wedding venue, Kettles Country House Hotel in Swords, and we knew from the moment we met them that we kinda wanted to be mates with them, even if they seemed far too cool for us! Jay had bright multi-coloured trainers that you could spot a mile away. Kassie had beautifully coloured hair that made her look a little like a mermaid. They had that effortless style and laid back charm that just draws people to them. ‘We don’t like stuffy photos!’ they said. ‘Perfect’ we said! Read More
