'A moment that just happened': Irish photographers behind Home and Away wedding reveal their favourite snap

"This photo just says it all."

The Irish photographers behind Home and Away's Sarah Roberts and James Stewart's wedding have revealed their favourite snap from the day.

Fiona and Mark Fennell - aka, The Fennells - were on hand as the soap stars tied the knot in the gorgeous surroundings of Luttrellstown Castle last month.

And the talented photographers told Her about how the Aussie actors first got in touch with them - and what it was like to help the celebrity couple plan out the photographs they wanted for the day.

Mark explained they knew the wedding was "going to be brilliant" from the moment Sarah and James got in touch.

"They loved our work and natural style of photography and had been checking us out on our website and Instagram.

"We recently won Wedding Photographer Of The Year and other awards previously so this also helped in them making their decision.

"They then contacted us on email and immediately we got on great. They are such a lovely couple and a lot of fun."

The photographer also revealed that, given the couple's high profiles, there had been a few extras required for the wedding - namely, "a lot of planning and extra confidentiality."

Chatting to Her, Mark said:

"We’ve had the pleasure of shooting big weddings before, but this would be one of the most famous ones, especially as they are both very famous together and independently of each other on an international level.

"Weddings like these are always an honour to be a part of. They require a lot of planning and extra confidentiality which we are used to providing, so we couldn’t tell anyone we even shot the wedding until we had their consent."

Mark explained he and Fiona have "so many" favourite photos from the big day - but there was one in particular that stood out.

He continued:

"Favourite shot, there are just so many. There are more we haven’t revealed yet so watch this space.

"But one that stands out would have to be the fireworks photo because we always find that the natural unposed photos are just the best photos every time.

"It was a moment that just happened as they embraced and looked at each other.

"This amazing skyline of fireworks couldn’t distract them from each other and that’s exactly how James and Sarah are, they are smitten with each other and super in love. This photo just says it all."

Although James and Sarah are based in Australia, there weren't any difficulties planning ahead of the big day.

Mark explained:

"We work with a lot of couples planning weddings abroad and so it was no problem. We were also able to meet up prior to the wedding so we had everything they wanted all set out before the wedding day.

"This meant they could just relax and enjoy the day and know it was all in hand. They are both so relaxed and lovely to be around, so it was a pleasure to shoot."
