Gemma & James
Wedding preparation to the party
From the wedding preparation to the party were the instructions, once we sit down for dinner we want to relax…. ok I said.
Gemma & James live in coventry, Gemma is Irish and James is English and they got married in Ireland, and were married in one county and had their reception in another…what could go wrong?
The answer is easy nothing, the day went off without a hitch… except they got hitched!
I photographed these guys when I still lived in Ireland, it was may, the weather was fine and the day was a fantastic celebration.
After we chatted about what the bride and groom wanted from me and how long they wanted to book me for we agreed that I would photograph the wedding preparation to the party.
An as I lived two miles from the reception hotel, I was home in time for a beer and chat with my wife, this is unusual for a wedding photographer!
I met the bride at her mums house and started work, bubbles were already flowing and spirits were high, the ceremony was in Dundalk and reception in Slane. we agreed that if the weather was fine we would stop at the famous Hill of Slane and shoot the bridal party there.
once we got the group shots done the bridesmaids and groomsmen left and we spent 20 minutes or so getting the bridal portraits done. all that was left was the throwing of the bouquet , a ritual that seems less popular these days.
I photographed the bride and groom cutting the cake and got out of their hair, a great day all round, enjoy the pictures.
