same sex weddings northern ireland
October 29, 2020


Siobhan & Angela’s wedding was so much fun from the minute I arrived to the very end of the day and was a wedding that was immaculate in its detail. Not only did it pack a punch visually but it was also so accommodating to the guests attending; everyone was thought of and made as comfortable and welcome as humanly possible.

Castle ward is one of my absolute favourite venues to photograph, especially when the sun shines. One thing that always stands out for me is the friendly and professional manner of the staff and management. So………… with Castle Ward grounds being so extensive and the management aware of this fact – it can mean only one thing……….. Golf buggies! It was certainly a surreal experience driving around in a golf buggy with a camera slung over each shoulder and two beautiful brides as cargo.

As we made our way across the landmarks Castle Ward has to offer, my second photographer Jake did a great job capturing candid shots and everyone having a fantastic time while I was away.

After the ceremony at Castle Ward sunken gardens it was off to Hugh McCann’s in Newcastle Co. Down for the reception and festivities. Jake and I were sad to leave as it was just brilliant fun and we both felt so welcome throughout the day.

I hope you enjoy my latest post and feel free to leave any comments below.
