Tamsin & Chris – Orange Tree House Wedding

Chris and Tamsin’s beautiful Orange Tree House Wedding.

This Orange Tree House wedding is one that I have wanted to blog for some time now. There’s a lot to talk about!

Sometimes weddings can get really emotional. Not all the time, but Tamsin & Chris’ was a definite exception. They had such a beautiful circle of family and friends around them and that good energy ripples through the day. People who love lots, smile lots and care lots always make for the best photos.

From the first chat I had with Tamsin and Chris, they wanted it natural. Lot’s of candid shots of guests and family mingling. I tried my best to blend into the background to achieve some truly natural portraiture.

After the stunning ceremony they decided to go to the Abbey for some pics. This grand ruin is a great backdrop for photos! After having some fun with the group shots there was one thing on Tamsin and Chris’s mind – that jump lift from the movie dirty dancing. They had been practising this for some time and nailed it in one go. The smile on Tamsin’s face just shows how much joy she felt in that moment. See, that’s what weddings are all about for me. Having as much fun as possible.

Weddings at Orange Tree House

On to Orange tree house. Ther room was dressed to perfection with an air of boho chic and rustic charm. The hanging cake was a showstopper and the little touches around the venue really made it their own

As the sun set we wandered out into the bay and got some gorgeous sunset shots. One nice thing about Orange tree house is how close its located to the waters edge. It’s even firm under foot – no sinking heels. Perfect to get some isolated and romantic shots with the Mournes far off in the distance.

Everyone had a blast that evening! Lots of jumping round and dacing in that ver hotel room!

There’s no denying that Tamsin and Chris were loving life! For me weddings like theirs always stay with me. There is something very natural and easy about their connection. I wish Tamsin and Chris the very best of luck for the future.

This wedding was photographed before COVID-19; no social distancing required.
