There so many things that I loved about being the photographer for this wedding, I don’t really know where to begin. I met Ciara when I photographed her sisters wedding a couple of years ago. These girls have style, grace and great taste. They and their family made me feel right at home and I just loved being around such a calm, wonderful and loving family. When Ciara asked me to take her photographs at her home I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to see everyone again.
When I arrived the autumn light was gloriously shining over their beautiful garden, the marquee was being prepared and it was all hands on deck. There garden were full of flowers that Ciara’s mum had grown especially for the day and she was busy pruning and collecting petals. Tables were being carried on heads, cakes were being dressed and cats were hiding in green houses. It was calm and blissful.
Ciara’s dress is out of this world and Neal looked bob smacked. The ceremony was bursting with laughter and love. It was so great to see all the familiar faces back together to celebrate another beautiful day together.
Having a wedding reception in your garden in October is risky but their risk paid off. Drinks were drank on the terrace surrounded by autumn colour and fantastic evening sunlight. The craic was great. There is something about having a wedding at home that makes everyone feel so relaxed, the atmosphere was great.
The marquee felt like being in a grand hotel, it was perfect. The speeches were side splitting and tear jerking, the best kind of speeches. When I left the place was buzzing, dinner was being served and Ciara and Neal looked blissfully happy.
My only regret is that all of Ciara’s siblings are now married!
Thanks Ciara and Neal for bringing me along, see you soon x
