WHAT A DAY !
An epic wedding day for Arthur and Erin (from the USA) that started early in the morning with a wedding day WOD at Crossfit Belfast (thanks Andy) so happy to see Sam from Amber Tree filming everything. Then a dash across the city for the girls and some pampering at the Merchant (with the dream team in charge Kerri on makeup and Dani on hair) . Whilst the boys headed straight to the Larchfield Estate to get read there.
First Look was aa dream – such a joy to shoot. what can I say… Then family photos before the ceremony, what??? I love it, super easy and no one hiding for the camera in the bar?
The outside ceremony in the Sunken Garden, was amazing, sunshine all the way, crying guests and a flower girl trying to trash here bouquet – special mention to the floral installation (WOW). Perfect country reception in the courtyard, plenty of fun guest moments for me to shoot… Then we whisked the Guys away for a very relaxed shoot in the garden. Their 1st dance was BEFORE dinner in the great barn. I can safely say you had to be there to appreciate how funy the speeches were, special mention to the Titanic and a commemorative Tshirt fro all guests (I didn’t get one??) .
Eat and chill time
then FLASH MOB (very well done) under canvas on the courtyard…. Ok after 12+ years of shooting weddings I thought I had seen it all (I was wrong) the dancing reached new heights of excellence, enthusiasm, energy and perhaps nudity – still its a wedding, you are meant to have fun !!
Not forgetting I had some smoke grenades in my bag – I think the rain only made these shots look more dramatic.
Sparkler exit to Finnish. (+ fish n chips)
