So it appears it is possible to have an amazing fun filled wedding in this day and age.
Loved every part of this wedding from the moment I arrived. No stress, no tension and just plenty of laughs (well apart from when one of the men destroyed his shirt with an Iron) and before you roll your eyes ladies he was multi tasking at the time so not his fault. Anyway here's a quick look at how the day went, hope you enjoy!!
What a year ! But im not even going to go there...............So here is a quick selection of shots to show you how it went.
2020! We are sick of hearing it so I'll mention it now and get it out of the way. COVID.........it has alot to answer for and its been a long struggle from a business point of view but one positive to come from it all is garden weddings. Intimate, personal, extremely relaxed with no real strict schedule to stick to. Think of the best house party you have been to but better dressed, better food, better craic and with a wedding ceremony dropped in early on in the day. Hannah & David are a couple absolutely suited to a garden wedding.
Free spirits, layed back, full of fun and so well matched. So what better place to get married than their beautiful home they have made for themselves. (think cottage,chickens,and self sufficiency)
I must also give out two awards at one wedding - The grooms hair style award AND the Brides shoe award!
Any how I like to think my images speak better than me so heres a small slideshow to give you an idea how the day went.
Tom & Rachel travelled from England to have their wedding at the Europa hotel......have I told you how much I love city centre weddings?
The day started with the ladies in the morning getting all the preps, super laid back and relaxed.
I headed to the hotel to get some shots of the men getting ready before the service. Its funny the contrast between the men and the women on the morning. Ladies- hair, makeup, flowers, jewellery, perfume, putting the dress on, putting double sided sticky tape on all sorts of areas, then the sewing kit is produced for an emergency and then OMG heres the cars!!!! ,Men- shower, shave, suit , beer lol
After the service we headed with the bridal party to the Crown Bar for a quick pint ( I didnt have one, the pictures would be blurry) and then onto Botanic Gardens.
After all the formalities were out of the way the party started and didnt stop until I left.
A brilliant couple and family to work with and heres just a very small selection as to what went on . hope you like.
Sarah & Gareth travelled from their home in Australia to get married and Im super glad they did! Within 30 seconds of meeting this couple I felt like I had known them for years. Their laid back and fun personalities rubbed off on everyone which made what was an amazing day so much better.
The Mill at Ballydugan as usual were unreal ........the venue , location, staff and food cannot be faulted.
Anyway , heres just a very small selection of images from the day . Hope you like them
What a wedding!!
Here is just a small selection of photos to show what we got upto on the day.
I love the morning prep stage of the day and this one reminded me why, brilliant fun and stress free as Katharine was so laid back.
After the Service we headed to the Walled Garden in Bangor for some shots and then back to the Royal Ulster Yacht Club which I suppose wouldn't be well known for weddings but as usual they nailed it with fantastic service and food ohhh and of course the views!! After the meal I could see a bit of a storm heading in (it is Ireland after all) so we knew this would be a great opportunity for some dramatic photos. Check them out they were most certainly dramatic !
Riverdale Barn.....what a venue! So....... I had Kirsty & James being two amazingly easy people to photograph, a fantastic family, an unreal venue, the laughs and fun created from Cameoflage to Rodd Hogg stunning people with the best magic I have ever seen!
As a wedding photographer that is all I needed to create some stunning and fun filled images.
It was my absolute pleasure to be part of this day and thanks soooo much to Kirsty & James for choosing me to be their photographer.
Here is just a small selection of images from the day.....hope you like them!!!

Stuart Macrory - Wedding Photographer
I've been photographing weddings since 2013 and have covered all corners of Northern Ireland and further afield. I have shot hundreds of weddings for which I'm extremely lucky to have witnessed! My approach to wedding photography is to be discreet and ninja like! This allows me to capture all the little moments that happen so quickly and can easily go unnoticed.
