I laughed so much with Jenny and Kevin as we headed out on what felt like the first day of Spring. Beautiful sunny weather late on in the afternoon. Looking forward to your day later in the month and hopefully we'll have a bit more of that sunshine!
A beautiful relaxed autumn wedding day where even the weather couldn't stop the smiles. Their service was conducted in Broughderg set in a stunning scenic location and then onto the amazing Lissan House for photographs. Leanne and Dominic stayed local for their reception traveling a short distance down the road to the Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown.
The day started with Dominic and his groomsmen popping into Omagh first for a quick pint of their favourite drink in McCann's bar before heading off to Broughderg. Thanks to my 2nd shooter Sharon for capturing their preparations.
Such a lovely day with a fantastic couple and their families. Congratulations x

Here's another gorgeous autumn pre wedding shoot where we also used the opportunity to scout locations for their wedding next October. Again, beautiful rich colours really enhance the photographs at this time of year. Looking forward to 2016! x
I'm not sure where to start with this wedding and have changed my introduction so many times! Sharon is a former colleague of mine and we worked together so many times on different shoots. She has always brought her own unique, quirky flair and when she asked me to photograph her wedding I knew it would be stamped with her own mark. Her wedding dress is original vintage and belonged to her granny. Sharon meticulously worked on the dress with the assistance of seamstress Kate to make her own customisation. Sharon designed her own bridesmaid dresses and they were then made by Kate. The amazing peacock bouquets, invites and jewellery were designed and handmade by her very talented sister Ellie of NI Bridal Couture. The final look was finished off with Vivienne Westwood shoes.
Such an amazing emotional day with beautiful weather just to top it off. Oh and we also flew by helicopter from Sharon's family field to the Crover House Hotel. I think I'd like to travel this way to all my weddings from now on! Congratulations x

I was so delighted when Kathryn and Julien asked me to photograph their wedding, I had previously photographed the weddings of Kathryn's sisters so it was a great honour to be called back to the family. I remember at Jane's wedding Kathryn telling me she was moving to France and then at Julie's wedding I met Julien. Kathryn's mum joked how she'd see me again for their wedding!
Kathryn and Julien have to be one of the most laid back couples I have ever worked with and even the stormy weather didn't cause any concern. On their wedding day we had all the seasons, high winds, rain, sleet, hailstones and sunshine with bitter cold temperatures.
Such a fantastic day with two lovely families. Congratulations x
