LETS GO OUTSIDE
Today in my Blog I'm going to be talking about the lovely Emily and Anthony. They very kindly let me 'direct' their day and were very good at letting me drag them outside on one of the worst days in December for some photographs on Portaferry harbour. We are wedding photographers based in Northern Ireland so we are normally prepared for rain but it was very windy as you can see from the photographs.
Emily is from Portaferry and was keen on the idea, but living in Northern Ireland and knowing that it permanently rains we knew it was going to be a 'call it on the day' opportunity to get outside wedding photographs. The ceremony was indoors and the bride was walked down the ailse by her beloved father who kept insisting that he was in too many photographs and kept asking 'Are we done yet?'
From her church service at Portaferry they drove to Ramada Shawsbridge for their reception and as it was christmas time there was a huge tree as the backdrop for some bridal party and family photographs and of course it was the obvious choice for the group shot.
The reason why I enjoyed this wedding so much was because the Bride and Groom really really enjoyed themselves :)
I know everyone enjoys their wedding day, but these guys really didn't mind that the wind was blowing, that the brides hair wasn't perfect and that her dress got a bit damp running in the rain from the car to the pier. Emily had just married the love of her life she was delighted with herself and she absolutely showed it with her lovely smile.
I said to the bride and groom that I wont be able to photograph another wedding like it. Im sure they thought I was talking nonsense. But honestly Ive yet to meet another bride who was up for a bit of craic and wanted to just be with her new husband didnt care that her veil was being used as a deadly weapon nearly strangling her best man or nearly went into the lough.
She was relaxed and in love and I think it shows :)
