Chantel and David - Tullyveery House Wedding

Chantel and David - Tullyveery House Wedding

The week before Chantel and David’s wedding I visited the venue in absolutely torrential rain and I had a pit in my stomach. That’s not to say you can’t get amazing photos in the rain (‘cos you definitely can) but it does make life a little more difficult for everyone involved. But alas we live in Northern Ireland and the weather is temperamental at best.

Then came the day of Chantel and David’s wedding and the weather couldn’t be better, add to that the gorgeous bride and stunning location and you get one happy photographer!

Lesley and Matthew - Watermill Lodge Lisnaskea

Lesley and Matthew are fun, energetic teachers…yes I said teachers! But these pair aren’t your stereotypical teachers. In fact right now they have given their lovely English life up for teaching posts in Thailand. I’m not jealous…you are!

Anyways, a week before the big move off their lives across the world they got married right on the water at Watermill Lodge in Lisnaskea and they got a glorious day (I may have even got a little sunburn).

There were tears, laughs, dancing, a boat ride and a stunning sunset. Check it out!

Conna and David - Belfast City Centre Wedding

Sometimes you photograph a wedding when you don't now what to expect and you just have to show up and roll with it. I think that about sums up David and Conna's wedding.

When a nervous male on his own approached me at a wedding fair to photograph his wedding that very week I was not expecting that what I was actually signing up for was a tv show that I can't mention but where the groom must book and choose everything for his wedding day without the bride's knowledge. You're smart people so I think you may have figured out what I'm talking about...

That being said I agreed before I knew what I was agreeing to and was terrified about what I was walking into. Normally I like to meet and get to know my couples so I have a very clear vision of what they want and I could deliver on the day. Without having met the bride and very briefly spoken to the groom, my anxieties were sky high.

That being said, the day was a very pleasant surprise but i'll simply let the pictures tell the rest...

For The "Unbride" Bride Part 2 - Bridal Editorial Styled Shoot

For Part 2 of this Bridal Shoot for the alternative bride, I wanted a more ethereal feel. I love and am inspired by art and this shoot was very much influenced (if I'm honest subconsciously) by one of my favourite art eras - the Pre-Raphaelites.

Again the flowers were by Memento and the dress was actually one I already owned. I just imagine how the chiffon would move and flow with the water.

Apart from a canine photo bomber, this shoot turned out exactly how I wanted. Enjoy....

For The "Unbride" Bride Part 1 - Bridal Editorial Styled Shoot

As a wedding photographer here in Northern Ireland I have been lucky enough to see all types of brides from laidback boho to full on princess. But there is one thing that always stands out, all my brides want to be different but not all my brides want to go full on white wedding.

I used that as the inspiration for this 'unbride' bridal shoot. I got to style, do the makeup and photograph (it was a busy day!).

I was very lucky to collaborate with some great businesses here in the North. The wonderful guys from Memento florists on the Ormeau Road. Honestly, if you want someone to read you mind go here!

The outfit from this part of the styled shoot was from Marmalade in Ballymena. If I wasn't already excited for the shoot, Molly, from this quirky fashion boutique, had me revved up and ready to go such is her infectious enthusiasm.

Hope you like part one and keep your eyes peeled for the next instalment...
