Here in Northern Ireland, we seem to have a bit of an extended wedding season, probably because we only ever seem to get good weather in Spring and Autumn! This year my wedding season started on the first weekend of March, and apart from a few upcoming winter weddings, it ended last Friday. 2012 has been an amazing year for me – I’ve been lucky enough to have a steady stream of beautiful and interesting weddings right through the past 7 months – and I couldn’t have asked for a better day to round off the busy season.
Fiona and Tim got married at Larchfield Estate, near Lisburn, which regular readers of the blog will know is one of my absolute favourite venues to work in. The gardens looked stunning with their autumn colours on full display, and as always the barn looked magical. Despite Fiona’s dad’s speech revealing that he had been told that this would be very much a ‘stiff upper lip’ kind of wedding (due to the large contingent of English guests), there was plenty of emotion on show. Fiona and Tim seemed over the moon to be getting married and all of their family and friends were obviously delighted for them too – as a photographer it’s a joy to work at a wedding with such a happy atmosphere.
I hope you enjoy looking through the story of Fiona and Tim’s wedding, as seen through my eyes. Highlights for me were definitely Fiona’s beautiful and elegant wedding gown, a fab ceilidh, and the finest selection of waistcoats I think Northern Ireland has ever seen!
