Richard & Emma – Crawfordsburn Inn

I’ve been looking forward to this wedding coming around in my editing pile! It was a lovely, relaxed day – it hardly felt like work at all!

Emma got ready in the Crawfordsburn Inn:

Then over to the church in Holywood:

Love the next one!

And then down to Crawfordsburn Country Park:

Mark & Helen – Crawfordsburn Inn

Helen pulled up at the Crawfordsburn Inn in a big limo – and suddenly I realised I knew her parents from way back! Small world 🙂
The old N.Ireland weather didn’t disappoint with all the seasons in one day – but hey thats a small price for living in the world’s best wee country! Right, enough of my ramblings – here’s a few photos:

Down at Crawfordsburn Country Park…(love the umbrella photo!)

Any bride & groom who have a VW camper van at their wedding earns instant credibility with me 🙂

Talking about cars, looks like Mark’s single-man tax is about to run out…cool cuff-links eh?!?!?

Now for perhaps the most interesting rings picture i’ve ever taken:

Tyrone & Alexandra: Clandeboye Lodge

I’d take a fair guess and say that Alexandra likes her shoes! Not only were Alexandra’s shoes amazing – but Tyrone is the first groom I have ever seen wear cool blue shoes! Was a great day.

Here’s a few photos:

And now a few at the Kingdom Hall…

Below: It’s so easy to miss these wee moments – love this one:

The reception was at the Clandeboye Lodge Hotel:

The next photo makes me smile:

And finally two candids – the first of the cake cutting and the second of the bride chatting to friends:

Richard & Kirsty – Carnlea Golf Club

I had a great day with Richard & Kirsty. They enjoy laughter – something thats very, very infectious. I’d also never been to Carnlea Golf Club before. We did alot of the photos at Crawfordsburn, but it was nice to take a few at a new location…

So…here’s a few photos…Let’s start with the grooms preparations:

And then off to the bride’s house:

Meet the two brothers! I was a little uncertain whether to post the next two photos but here goes. Kirsty had bought her brothers a little wedding gift. The ‘Potty Putter’ is an ingenious idea 🙂 – but I wasn’t quite expecting a demonstration!!

So after being somewhat emotionally scarred for life at the Potty Putter incident, I headed down to the church.

For whatever reason, I really like the picture above right in the doorway. Now to Crawfordsburn…

And to Carnlea – the views are simply stunning. I quite like the black tiles too…

Rachel and Mark

Rachel and Mark are relaxed, fun people to be around. The photos where in Ward Park which was new to me and nice. Even better, it was a 20second walk from the church! Here’s a few photos:

Above: checkout the shoes!!!

Above: really great bridesmaids – I’ll show you a picture of the others later on…

I think the next two photos sum the couple and the day up pretty nicely:

Above: Our final stop at the Ramada, Belfast


Wedding at Bangor & Crawfordsburn Wedding

Here’s a few photos from Andrew & Lauren’s wedding! I always like the Crawfordsburn Inn (indeed I had my Christmas Dinner there!), so it was good to get back on the beach again.

I’ve selected a few of the more formal (ish) photos to show you this time.

Outside Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church, Bangor

Inside the church!

On the left: I’m not actually the biggest fan of sepia colour – but I think I’m maybe changing my mind!! The last few albums have had sepia pages in them – brides seem to like it and I have to say it gives a very timeless feel.

Haven’t done this photo before – think I’ll do it again in the future!

Above: Just for the blog, I’ve desaturated these a little to give a 60’s/70’s look…

This couple went for a traditional, square album – you can see the mockup here
