Josh & Emma - Drenagh Estate Wedding

Josh & Emma came back from London to tie the knot close to where Emma grew up - Northern Ireland’s beautiful north coast. Drenagh Estate is a close drive from the most beautiful coastline in Ireland and so it was the perfect venue to show off Ireland at it’s best to their guests from further afield. We love when couples have their ceremony and reception in the one place, and Drenagh Estate lends itself perfectly to this. The stunning Moon Garden is the ideal for all types of ceremonies with a short walk back to the main House for a drinks reception. If you get lucky and the sun comes out, even better! But if not, it’s a beautiful place for guests to mingle and the party to start.

Wade & Hannah - The Carriage Rooms, Montalto Estate Wedding

Wade & Hannah came back from California to Northern Ireland to get married where Hannah grew up in Belfast.  After a beautiful ceremony in St Colmcilles in East Belfast, Hannah, Wade and their guests made the short journey to the beautiful Carriage Rooms at Montalto Estate.  Guests were greeted with the highest level of service from the (always brilliant) Yellow Door Catering and special guests in the form of two Alpacas who mingled perfectly with everyone and proved highly popular! 

We smiled alongside Hannah and Wade all day, we couldn't not - their energy and happiness was contagious and this day was just the perfect way to celebrate the coming together of two brilliant people.

We don't say this lightly, but we were privileged to have been there

25 Fitzwilliam Place Wedding, Dublin - Mick & Rebecca

We travelled down to Dublin to celebrate with the ever so sweet Mick and Rebecca on their wedding day.  It was our first visit to the fabulous Smock Alley Theatre which didn't disappoint.  We then scrambled our way across Dublin City to No.25 Fitzwilliam Place for a drinks reception, which was extra special as it's owned and managed by Rebecca and her family.  We had a 'knock your socks off' meal with the rest of the guests down below in Suesey Street Restaurant that Tim and I are STILL talking about!!

Thank you so much to these guys for having us and looking after us like guests.  What a day.  We'll never forget sneaking up to the roof top for those sunset photos, so special! Thanks also to Gavin at Dreamcatcher Productions for being great craic to work with on the day.

Harry's Shack Wedding, Portstewart - Caroline & Vincent

This lovely pair came from Paris, back to Caroline's hometown of Portrush for their glorious spring wedding, with a fabulous reception at Harry's Shack in Portstewart.  They got lucky with the weather and the sun shone down on them all day.  It couldn't have been more perfect.  The north coast of Ireland was showing off! 

Harry's Shack lended itself perfectly to their chilled beach vibes with it's gorgeous rustic decor and it's 'je ne sais quoi'.  We loved every minute of this wedding and would do it all again in a heart beat! If you are thinking of having a north coast wedding, definitely consider this brilliant venue - and us to take your photos!!!

Megan & Paul - Tullyveery House Wedding

Megan and Paul chose to have their whole day (ceremony and reception) at Tullyveery House, which in our opinions is always a great choice, guests just are instantly more relaxed.  And it has a great outdoor and indoor option depending on weather.  We had a fabulous day with these two from start to finish!

Marc & Ruth - Beechill House, Wedding, Londonderry

ruthmarcwedding-131.JPG

When you live around the corner from one of the North Coast of Irelands nicest hotel wedding venues, it's a no brainer that you host your own wedding there.  Especially when it comes with the sentimental value of actually living on the grounds when you were a tot, as it did for Ruth.  Marc and Ruth came over from the bright lights of London to celebrate with friends and family at the gorgeous Beech Hill Country House in Londonderry.  The neutral hues and tones of dresses and flowers fitted the autumnal time of year perfectly and the addition of a beautiful fur coat completed Ruths elegant get-up.  The ease of having their ceremony across the road from the wedding venue worked brilliantly meaning guests didn't have to think about transport all day. We loved getting to spend the day with this pair  and once again were looked after so well by them and the Beech Hill. Thanks for having us guys!

BeechHill House Wedding

 

Hugh & Reem - a Belfast City Centre Wedding

Ever wondered what an Air Bnb wedding looks like?  Wonder no more.  Reem & Hugh didn't have much time to plan their wedding before jetting off to live in Bejing, so they did things their way, and their way was epic! 

After officiating things in Belfast City Hall with their immediate family, they made their way down south to Longford where their guests awaited them.  With backgrounds in architecture they knew this air bnb was the ticket to a good party with their loved ones.  A blank canvas combined with good vision and help from their mates, they transformed this beautiful place into a perfect wedding venue.  With indoor sleeping space limited, the great outdoors was called upon, tents were pitched and voila, everyone had somewhere to spend the night!  

We don't need to say much more, feast your eyes on this....

Neal & Anna - Lissanoure Castle Wedding

Ah, we love Lissanoure Castle Weddings!!! It's where we tied the knot back in 2007, and it still has the same charm now as it did back then, probably even more! Tim went to school with Neal and we loved getting to know his lovely bride Anna in the lead up to the wedding. 

There's no denying, Anna's Rue De Seine dress stole the show, brought even more to life by gorgeous flowers designed by Floral Earth.  As always it was a joy to work alongside Tippy Logronio (MUA) and Lynette Murray (hair), two of the sweetest people in the industry!

Kevin & Mary, wedding at home, Northern Ireland

Kevin and Mary were fortunate enough to host their wedding at Mary's family home in Draperstown. The gorgeous marquee was provided by Eventco who we always love working alongside. The grounds were decorated with bottles, jars and bits and bobs found around the home and it all tied in so perfectly, we'll never forget the background folk traditional music echoing around the grounds as guests laughed, drank, ate and just had the craic!  As you can see, this was a magical wedding executed to an incredible standard and we loved every minute from start to finish.

Iain and Suzanne - The Carriage Rooms, Wedding

We had the pleasure of documenting Iain and Suzanne's gorgeous wedding at The Carriage Rooms at Montalto Estate.  Iain had only been home for a matter of days from The British Lions tour of New Zealand so we were seriously impressed at how fresh he looked and how well Suzanne had coped with planning so much of the wedding herself! Kudos to both of them.  The Carriage Rooms, as always, was the perfect elegant venue, with help from Grace and Saviour, and flowers by The Rosehip and Berry...  what a dream team!

Nathan & Jenny - Tullyveery House Wedding

Nathan & Jenny had a fabulous summer wedding at the gorgeous Tullyveery House, Co. Down, Northern Ireland.  Weather was idyllic, guests were relaxed (especially as they had the whole day there from start to finish), birds were singing and things couldn't have been more perfect.  When a sweet couple ask you to document their wedding day it's such an honour, and to get front row seats to this life changing day just never gets old...

John & Lorna - Galway's finest!

We are so grateful to have been invited down to Galway to spend the day photographing John & Lorna's wedding at  The Salthill Hotel. As you can imagine, with John's long term dedication and involvement with Connacht Rugby these guys had a huge number of guests  which meant all the more fun.  After a beautiful ceremony at Jes Church we headed into Galway town for drinks and to soak up some Bank Holiday vibes.  We even had time to pop into Lorna and John's new 'old' house which is a wee gem of a cottage bursting with character. Not only that, it's where John proposed so we definitely wanted to mark the spot with some photos.

One year of our youngest....

365 days ago we met Jonas (the bonus) in the flesh for the first time.  I can't say i felt overly comfortable walking about the maternity ward with a camera, i tried to be discreet and sensitive.  Although the staff, especially in the operating room, were very cool and i think they found the whole idea quite exciting.  I'm grateful for all the staff within the Causeway Hospital that day for their love, care and smiles.

Vanessa & Owen - Portrush Wedding

Vanessa and Owen travelled from Australia to get married in Owen's home town of Portrush at the end of last year, before re-locating to a new life in Oregon.  They kept everything on home turf by hosting the evening party at Owen's families pub, just a stones throw from their reception venue, 55 degrees north.  A brilliant, chilled out day for their friends and family, on a mild December day. They nailed this one!!

Katharine & Blayne - Drenagh House Wedding

We couldn't be happier to be sharing this beautiful wedding at Drenagh House that we shot in September with Katharine & Blayne.  We knew from the get-go that there would lots of us to gush over as both Katharine's sister and mum are florists at uber popular FloralEarth and Katharine herself works in the fashion industry. The dress... the dress! No words needed, just look! And Blayne kept up his side of the bargain by getting his suit handmade by Dee Graham and he just looked top dollar :) Let's not forget the epic cake table with Ursa Minor Bakehouse Donuts.... oh my!

Dan & Lois - Tullyveery House Wedding

You know it's a good day when The Red Arrows make a random surprise appearance just as you're saying your vows!  Dan and Lois brought their elegance, beauty and families to beautiful Tullyveery House.  We loved their style and relaxed ceremony, and any party with The Gents band and s'mores is a winner in our eyes.  Lois's cousin handmade her wedding dress which was just incredible, what a talent and how significant. Unfortunately Tolly, Heneretta and Bernadette couldn't make it over from London...their cat and two chickens.
