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!

Shannon & David - Old Court Chapel, Strangford

We had a blast enjoying a day of elegance and excellence. An old fashioned love story between Shannon and David.   Old Court Chapel is an absolute haven set beside Strangford lough. From the beautiful old church to the unique barn room dance floor, it really is high up there on our list of best wedding venues in Northern Ireland.   Guests were treated to a cocktail of rain and sunshine...classic Irish weather for those visiting from across the water...  The wedding was helped come to life by the fantastic Floral Earth, catering by The Yellow Door, and hair and make up by Lynette Murray & Ashley Morhej, both such talented girls and a great team to work alongside!

4 point 5 of us....

Changes are coming for our wee family... 4 will become 5 in February and having made the transition to 2 kids at school/nursery this autumn (and lots more kid-free time!) we'll be back to all-things-baby in 3 months time!  So we're squeezing all we can out of our free mornings... walking, running (while I still can), coffee breaks galore, netflix and just taking things at a nice pace.

 And with this gorgeous autumn weather we've been given, we jumped at the chance (finally) to take what could well be one of our last sets of photos as a foursome.  Olivia (6) and Jude (3) are at such a great wee stage, we have a lot of laughs, and Tim and I just adore being with them and lapping up our surroundings together. SO thankful we get to live where we do, it just never gets old!

Paul & Debra - Mussenden Temple Wedding

Paul and Debra brought the party to the north coast! We loved these guys. Another fearless couple that take risks and break some rules. They planned their day their way. Floral crown, sharp suits, epic temple, slick cars, shades, killer dj set, confetti with a capital C and a lush sunset.   If you're going to bring half of your wedding guests over from London this is the way to do it...

Matt & Ariana - North Coast Cliff Top Wedding

Matt and Ariana had a dream and it was a complete pleasure to document it unfolding. These guys live in Philadelphia, Matt moved away from Northern Ireland when he was 6 so for him and his family this was the right place.  There ceremony was indeed special.  They only decided on the location (at Dunseverick Castle) the day before and had their 2 dads, who are both pastors marry them -  Ariana brought her Greek routes into the day by having a Greek crowning ceremony which was just beautiful. These are two incredibly trusting and generous people. Their love and faith is infectious and I can honestly say this day has changed us. We will never see Antrim coastline in the same way again...

Ben & Olivia - Ulster Museum Wedding, Belfast

One of our first weddings this season and what a way to kick things off! When we met up with Ben & Olivia a few weeks before their wedding we knew it was going to be special.  The twinkle they both have in their eyes is something else, and Olivia's contagious laugh and ability to see the funny side in life is a gift from above (the gene clearly runs in their lovely families!).

Bikes, beer, books and beauty - Copenhagen

In October we headed off to Copenhagen, a culture we've wanted to experience for a while.  We like to get away for a few days each year, together, just us, exploring somewhere new. Our few days were pretty simple; run, eat, cycle, read, drink, repeat.

We don't take it for granted that we have able and willing parents to help with Liv and Jude, a true blessing.

Copenhagen, you blew us away, here's to the next time.

Behind the scenes at Lost & Found

This is a little snippet of an interior shoot we did a few months ago for some treasured friends of ours... There are a lot of amazing things about this house, but the best part is that they designed it around their heart for community and always having space for others.  The other great part is that a lot of this is house is  the behind the scenes of one of the most exciting new businesses opening in the Northern Ireland in the coffee and catering world.  Rather than us ramble on you can read more about Lost and Found Coffee Shop and Brew Bar here.  But if you like good (and we mean GOOD) coffee, you need to be checking this out!  We feel honoured to have watch this dream grow from the seed it started as, to the business it is today.  And we are loving seeing the excitement stir on the North Coast as their official opening draws closer!!

So this is where Dave and Emily live, and where they, with Dan and Kathleen, have been hosting weekly 'pop-ups' on a Sunday afternoon, for people in our community to drop in and drink amazing coffee.  And not only that, sample Kathleens incredible baking offerings.  Their house is a joy to photograph, with more light than a photographer could dream of, and colour pops at every angle.  It's totally them, and suits their every hospitable need.  We love it.




 

Ross & Emily

We get excited when couples tailor their wedding plans with places of significance in mind. Unfortunately it's not always possible. But Ross and Emily have pursued this with some engagement shots at the very spot Ross asked the question. If that wasn't significant enough their upcoming wedding will be in Queens; where their story started.  It's here that they drank coffee, wrote late night essays, went to gigs, got soaked in the Belfast rain and fell in love.

In years to come these images will remain, for future generations and family.  Ross and Emily - young and in love, in the very place it all began.

Graeme & Heather - Lough Erne Wedding

We enjoyed a special Cathedral Quarter engagement shoot with Graeme and Heather, and it has been great getting to know them.  The elegance and charm of the Lough Erne Resort was the perfect location.  After a wet and windy afternoon we were then blessed with evening sun, and hats off to these guys for popping outside after the meal and for just going with it!  I loved when I noticed a wee quote on one of the tables just before we left "sunshine always follows the rain"... perfect way to sum up their day! We adore...
