Ryan & Laura are married!!

Now if every house had one of these stands – idea for the shoe photo 🙂

Laura looked amazing..

There was this strange yellow orb in the sky that day. I haven’t seen it since!

I always like the Galgorm for photos…

 Like this next one a lot!

Chris & Marie-Claire

I must admit I very much like this dress..


I think I arrived at the church before the groom!


Now over to the Galgorm…


Haven’t done a picture on this seat before – its great!

Also love the next one!

Let’s finish with a topic close to my heart – chocolate!!



Mark & Amy – Galgorm Resort & Spa

All of these real sunny weddings seem like a distant memory now 🙂 Another brilliant day with a great couple. Galgorm is a great venue – but as always its the couple that make the day!

Let’s start at the bride’s house:


I met the men outside the Phantom House, Galgorm.  

A few candid guest photos after the service:

And then for a few in the grounds of the Galgorm:  

Philip & Kathryn – Galgorm Resort & Spa

It was a privilege to be invited back to the Monaghan household for another big occassion! Kathryn & Philip where the first of my weddings the week after Christmas. You do so much running around at weddings – its was a good way to work off the Christmas dinner(s).


So here’s a few photos:


Now to the chapel. Mr Monaghan’s expression just makes me laugh in the next one – I’ve included the more sensible one below it for good measure 🙂



The bridesmaids where very classy indeed..

Love the next 3:

The red against white is really striking – perfect for this time of year. The room at the Galgorm was beautifully decorated – really amazing.

Neil & Claire – Galgorm

Neil & Claire’s wedding was nice and wintry. The closest thing to a white wedding this year! I’m going through a wee spell of having seriously awesome couples who are very easy to work with – and this one was no exception!

Here’s a few photos:

Below: colour co-ordinating your bedroom around the bouquet – shows dedication 🙂


Below: 2 flowergirls or 3?

Slippy roads – good job they had plenty of horse power 🙂

Now to the Galgorm:


Wasn’t sure whether or not to blog the next one – but its one of those photos that makes me smile – so it passes the test 🙂     

Love the sunset light in the next few:


Below: I got one of these done – i’ll stick it on my facebook in the next few days. Will make you laugh!

Anytime Claire & Neil are together there’s fireworks! Neil organised these as a surprise. So how did he lure everyone outside at 8pm in freezing temperatures? He told them the photographer was taking a group photo! They must have thought I was a complete plunker – but shortly thereafter all was revealed!

Sean & Louise – Galgorm Resort & Spa

It doesn’t seem that long since I met Sean & Louise at a wedding fayre – and now they are married!! The church was just up the road a bit for me, then down to the lovely Galgorm.

Here’s a few wee photos!


Then we headed off to the church in Finaghy….  

Its kinda hard to describe the decor of the church. Its a little 70’s, a little 80’s – almost a little Art Decor or something. Anyway, given that the Irish weather was doing it’s thing we took a few indoors – I think they are pretty interesting!

Very pleased with this next one (its not often I say that):

The river was really raging at the Galgorm which made for a nice backdrop. This is the moment that Louise’s umbrella went for a little white water rafting ride..:-)




James & Jill – Mount Stewart

It’s funny how I’d never done a wedding at Mount Stewart – and then I was there twice in two weeks! There are very few venues which you could visit and take two completely different sets of wedding photographs. Really is a lovely place and I know it means a lot to James & Jill. Talking about James & Jill – what a great couple. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bride smile as much!

So here’s a few photos:


And now for Jill’s two favourite people (apart from James of course 🙂 )  

After the service there was tea – those scones are making me kinda hungry 🙂

So over to Mount Stewart…

After Mount Stewart we travelled up to Galgorm Resort & Spa. The photo below left is at Galgorm, The photo below right is at Mount Stewart (and I love it!)

Christopher & Charleen – Galgorm Resort & Spa

Charleen & Christopher got married at the end of March and had their reception at Galgorm.

From the first time I met Charleen I knew it would be a stylish wedding – and indeed it was! I love the dress, shoes and pretty much everything else! Enjoy!

Above: The two flowergirls were great.

Above: Really like the silhouette photo. It was taken just after the service in a wee nook in the church..

Above: one of the album layouts..

Above: I took this photo during the first dance! Think it captures the moment well…
