Leighinmohr House Hotel Wedding | Rachel & David

Rachel & David got married on the 10th of April at Magherafelt Baptist Church, with their wedding reception being held at the Leighinmohr House Hotel in Ballymena.

We started the morning with a trip to Rachel’s parents beautiful home in Magherafelt to photograph everyone getting ready. It was a relaxed morning, everything went according to plan and there wasn’t the need for the usual last-minute dash to get ready before it was time to leave.

Upon arriving at the church, we had just enough time to say a quick hello to David before Rachel arrived. The ceremony itself was lovely and as so often happens we got quite caught up in the moment ourselves. After the ceremony we where approached by one of the wedding guests who said it was the first time he had seen wedding photographers joining in with the hymns during the wedding service. Rachel & David walked out of the church to fistfuls of confetti being thrown by their guests which was lovely to see as so often we speak to couples who want to do this but the venue does not allow it.

After the ceremony we left for Springhill House, a beautiful National Trust property in Moneymore. This was our first visit here but we are sure it won’t be our last. The grounds around the main house even at this time of the year are amazing and proved to be a really good choice of location by Rachel & David for their bridal party photographs.

It had been threatening to rain all day but luckily enough it stayed away until we reached the Leighinmohr Hotel for the wedding reception. Once back at the hotel, it was time for the speeches and the cutting of the cake. It was very important for Rachel & David to spend as much time as possible with there guests and with that in mind they decided not to have the tradional first dance so that instead they could spend that time chatting with their guests.

Tullylagan Wedding | Victoria & Darrach

Victoria & Darrach got married on the 24th of February with the ceremony taking place at the Church of Assumption in Pomeroy and with the reception at the always amazing Tullylagan Country House Hotel.

This is a lucky couple, not only were they lucky enough to find each other, they also have two amazing daughters, Niamh and Ethain. They have been together since they were teenagers and had been planning there wedding for some time when lady luck smiled upon them again and they won a competition run by Belfast Live and the Wedding Journal to win the wedding of their dreams. The prize they won included a wedding reception at Tullylagan, venue styling, a honeymoon in Dubai, the wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses, suits for the boys and their wedding rings. A wedding photographer was not included so they had the option of choosing any wedding photographer in Northern Ireland so we were especially pleased that they decided to choose us.

We started the morning by meeting up with Victoria and the rest of the ladies at the Glenavon House Hotel in Cookstown to photograph everyone getting ready. Victoria had originally planned to get ready from home but with the distances involved, they decided at the last minute, that it made more sense to get ready closer to their ceremony and reception venue. As it turned out this was a good choice as the ladies took a little longer to get ready than expected and ran quite late for the ceremony as can sometimes happen with so much going on.

We met up with Darrach at the ceremony who looked relieved to see us, as he then knew that Victoria was on her way. Victoria arrived a few minutes later and made her way down the aisle to a beautiful song played by Davey Music Weddings. After the ceremony we made our way to Tullylagan, we did not need to stop of anywhere else for photographs, as the grounds at Tullylagan are perfect for wedding photography.

We have photographed a few weddings at Tullylagan Country House Hotel and it is one of our favourite venues. The staff here are very friendly and it was good to see a few familiar faces from other times we have visited. The reception room was stunning and as per usual the staff at Tullylagan put everything together perfectly to make sure that Victoria & Darrach had an amazing day.

5 Apps that will make planning your wedding a whole lot easier

When you get married, it will be one of the happiest days of your lives but actually planning your wedding will take a lot of effort and organisational skills. Thankfully, these days there is an app for everything and wedding planning is no exception.

If you are anything like us you will spend a large part of your day messing around on your phone so instead of checking out crazy cat videos on YouTube why not spend some of that time planning your wedding with this list of useful wedding planning apps. While there are tens of thousands of wedding planning apps, these are the most recommended by couples whose wedding we have photographed.

1. Pinterest – Wedding Inspiration

Pretty much the obvious choice to start with, most people are well aware of what Pinterest can do. For those of you that do not, Pinterest is a digital scrapbooking app that you can use for bookmarking images found online. You can use it via your web browser or you can download either the iPhone or Android app depending on your preference. Use this app to pin images you find on the web for everything from wedding dresses, wedding flowers and Jewellery.

Pinterest is also one of the only wedding planning apps that photographers sometimes get concerned about. Every wedding photographer in Northern Ireland at some point has had a bride who has showed them a Pinterest board made up of wedding photographs taken in front of an epic waterfall in Iceland and been asked to recreate that at a registry office wedding in Belfast. Do not be that bride! This app should be the first one you download after you get engaged. Set up individual boards for everything you need for your wedding and use it as a reference tool for later on. For example, set up individual boards for wedding gowns, wedding bouquets and so on.

2. Appy Couple – Everything you need all in one place

This free app, which is available for both iPhone and Android, is a complete solution for keeping your guests up to date with all of the information they need for your wedding. This app will allow you to share information on travel options, accommodation and contact details for the wedding party with your guests all in the one place.  Your wedding guests can also download the app free and can read your story, book their travel and direct message you with questions all direct from the app.


3. Top Table Planner – Take the stress out of the seating arrangements

Putting together, the table plan for your wedding can be a real headache and can be even more stressful than choosing who you should to invite to your wedding. This website will do all the heavy lifting for you. Simply add in your table type, the number of seats and the names of your guests and you can move them around until you are happy. Top Table Planner can be used on a PC, Mac, tablet or a smartphone. Visit http://www.toptableplanner.com for further details.

4. Shazam – Find your first dance song

You are out for the night and a song gets played that you have not heard before and you think to yourself that would be great for our first dance song but you never quite get around to finding out the name of the song and before too long you forget all about it. While not strictly a wedding app this is where Shazam comes in. Hear a song you like and want to find out what it is called or want to add it to your music library, Shazam will do this for you and is available for both iPhone and Android. You can check out a list of our top 10 first dance songs here.



5. Wedpics – Photo sharing app for your guest’s photos

This free iPhone and Android App can be used to gather all of the photographs taken by your guests from your wedding. Those out of focus iPhone photos your Aunty Doris took when she jumped in front of us as you walked down the aisle can now all be collected, stored, and shared from one place. In truth these type of Apps can be useful. Even though you may have booked amazing wedding photographers like us to photograph your wedding, the photos your guests take can often be amusing and show you a part of the day you would otherwise have missed. For example, photos from the antics that happen late on in the evening after your wedding photographer has long since left or photographs from your guests journey to your wedding.


We also have a group on Facebook filled with wedding vendors with everything from videographers, make-up artist, hairstylists and much more check it out here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/466214243532635/

Wedding planning in 2018 is easier than it has ever been before. If you know of any other great wedding planning apps and websites, please share them with us in the comments below.

Hugh McCanns Wedding | Aileen & James

Aileen & James were married on the 15th of January at St. Pauls Parish in Lurgan with their reception held at Hugh McCanns in Newcastle.

Before the ceremony, we met up with Aileen and her family at her Mum & Dad’s home in Lurgan to photograph everyone getting ready. Aileen’s mum and James & Aileen’s lovely little daughter Robyn kept us entertained all morning. Everyone was ready on time and we were able to get too St.Pauls with plenty of time to spare.

From a photography point of view, St. Pauls Parish was ideal for us. There is plenty of natural light to use inside and we did not run into any of the normal issues you expect to have when photographing an indoor religious marriage ceremony.

After the ceremony, we made our way to the seaside town of Newcastle in County Down for the reception, which was held at Hugh McCanns. Unfortunately, James, Aileen and the majority of their guests where delayed by a jack-knifed lorry and arrived at Hugh McCanns a fair bit later than expected. However, there was enough time for us to get the photos of Aileen & James on the beach that they really wanted.

No trip to Newcastle is complete without hitting up the amusement arcades so we were pleased when Aileen & James agreed to letting us grab a few quick photos in the arcade as well. Big thanks to the staff at Kent Amusements for accommodating us at such short notice! This place is a bit of a local institution even our parents can remember going there as kids.

Once we got back to Hugh McCanns it was time for the speeches and the cutting of the cake. Before the first dance Aileen was serenadedby a young guest and then they had a fun game of Mr. and Mrs.

Engagement Photography Northern Ireland | Crawfordsburn Country Park | Laura & Andy

We recently met up with Laura & Andy for their engagement session at Crawfordsburn Country Park in County Down. They will be getting married in early 2019 at the Clandeboye Lodge in Bangor.

We normally prefer to let our couples choose the location when they book us for an engagement session and Crawfordsburn was not Laura & Andrew’s first choice. They had originally planned to use Portavoe reservoir in Donaghadee but unfortunately it is currently closed to the public so was not an option. They had asked us for recommendations and straight away, we thought of Crawfordsburn Country Park. It is somewhere we have visited a lot recently to photograph weddings and other things. It is one of the few local locations that offers both a beach and a forest area and always works well.

We chose early morning for the session, as Crawfordsburn can get quite busy even at this time of the year. We had a little bit of concern about the weather leading up to the session and although the weather forecast was for a dry day when we arrived, it had started to rain. Thankfully, it was not heavy and was gone before too long.

As you would expect Laura & Andy are both excited about their wedding and seem to be well on their way to having all of their arrangements made. This was the first time we had met them both so the engagement session gave us a good chance to get to know each other a little better before we photograph the big day. We have not doubt that their wedding is going to be a lot of fun.

Ten Square Hotel Wedding | Rachael & Lee

Rachael & Lee got married on the 27th of December at the Ten Square Hotel in Belfast. Ten Square is a boutique style hotel right in the middle of Belfast city centre. In between the ceremony and the speeches, we made our way over to Belfast’s historic Botanic Gardens with Rachael & Lee.

We met up with Rachael in her suite at Ten Square in the morning to photograph everyone getting ready. It was a fun morning with plenty of giggles and everyone was excited about the day ahead. Later in the morning, Lee arrived in a huge stretch Hummer limo and we grabbed a few photographs with him and his groomsmen in the hotel bar.

It is rare to have a wedding and not have something go slightly wrong on the day and with so much to organise and remember it is not really a surprise when something happens that means the day does not go exactly to plan. For Rachael & Lee, it was the marriage licence as it was left at home. Thankfully Lee realised upon arriving at the hotel and arrangements were quickly made to send someone back for it. This meant that the ceremony was slightly delayed while we waited for the licence to arrive and everyone thought it was hilarious, well maybe apart from Lee.

After the ceremony, we made our way over to Botanic Gardens with Rachael & Lee. It was a bitter cold day and at one point, we had to take cover from the rain but Rachael & Lee where both good fun to spend time with and they did not let the not so good weather get in the way.

On arriving back at the hotel, we photographed the speeches and the cutting of the cake and then it was time for the dancing. Rachael & Lee had booked Skip Alexander as their wedding D.J so we knew straight away that we were in for a good night. Skip is one of the best around at getting everyone up and dancing. It was also nice to bump into David & Rachel whose wedding we had photographed a few weeks before.

Malone Lodge Wedding | Carly & Alex

Carly & Alex got married on the 20th of December at Glengormley Methodist Church in Newtownabbey, after the ceremony we made our way to Sir.Thomas & Lady Dixon Park for photographs before heading of to the Malone Lodge Hotel in Belfast for the wedding reception.

We met up with a nervous looking Carly at her sister’s home in Ballyclare early morning to photograph everyone getting ready. Carly was not nervous about getting married to Alex of course but just about the occasion. The girls did run a little late getting ready but we had just enough time to grab a quick photograph of Carly in her dress before we left to meet up with Alex at the church.

Upon arriving at the church we had, a quick chat with the minister who was a concerned about how many people there was capturing the wedding. As well as ourselves, Carly & Alex had also arranged for two guy’s to video their wedding but we promised to be as unobtrusive as we could and throughout the ceremony we tried to stay in the background. We also explained that we never use flash during the ceremony so as not to be distracting. This is a pet hate of ours when we see other photographers doing this, professional cameras and lenses are so good now that even a dimly lit church can easily be dealt with by exposing correctly without having to resort to using a flash the whole way through the ceremony.

After our chat with the minister, we met up with a very excited Alex. We assured him that Carly was only running a little late and was on her way, but he was not worried and told us that he expected her to keep him waiting. After all it is traditional for brides to run a little late on their wedding day. The ceremony itself was beautiful and Alex even stepped up to serenade his new wife, it was a touching moment and Alex is a fantastic singer.

After the ceremony we quickly made our way too Lady Dixons, we were a little worried about time as at this time of the year it gets dark so early but it worked out okay although it was proper night time by the time we left to go to the Malone Lodge. On arriving at the hotel Carly & Alex did their speeches, cut their cake and had their first dance, as you can see from the photographs everyone enjoyed themselves.

Leighinmohr House Hotel Wedding | Deborah & Kyle

Deborah & Kyle got married on the 12th of December at the Ballymena Elim Church. After the ceremony, we stopped off for photographs at Antrim Castle Gardens before heading to the Leighinmohr House Hotel in Ballymena for the wedding reception.

The journey to meet up with Deborah and her bridesmaids to photograph them getting ready at Deborah’s Mum & Dad’s house in Ballymena was less like our normal leisurely drive to a wedding and more like an episode of the television series Ice Road Truckers. The roads were chaotic due to severe black ice and along the way we seen many other motorists abandoning their cars and we also seen a few car accidents due to the poor weather. Thankfully, we arrived okay and although Deborah had been feeling unwell for a few days on the lead up to the wedding, it was a fun morning that went all too quickly.

Upon arriving at the church, we met up with Kyle and his groomsmen and it was easy to see how excited he was to get married to Deborah. We would be very surprised if there was a happier man in the whole of Ballymena on the day. When Deborah arrived at the church we got to share a very special moment between the two of them as each of them stood on either side of a corner in the church holding hands, while not being able to see each other as the minister gave them a blessing. This was a beautiful moment and we felt quite emotional ourselves as we made our way into the church afterword’s to photograph the ceremony.

After the ceremony along with Kyle, Deborah, their parents and the wedding party we headed of too Antrim Castle Gardens. With winter weddings you have to expect the unexpected and Deborah & Kyle's wedding was no exception. The weather was not ideal not only did it snow it also rained as well as being bitter cold. Due to preparation for an event that was, being held in the gardens large parts of the grounds were cordoned off and we couldn’t get access to the areas we would have liked to use. While it was unfortunate that we didn’t get to revisit some of the places we visited when we photographed Deborah & Kyle’s engagement session a few months back and that the weather wasn’t what we had hoped for it really didn’t matter. These two are probably the most loved up couple we have photographed and nothing could have stopped them from having an amazing wedding day. We had a lot of fun walking around the gardens with them and got some beautiful photographs.

Once we got to the Leighinmohr Hotel, it was time for the speeches, the cutting of the cake and the dancing. The room looked amazing, everyone had a good time and it was a fun evening for us to be a part off.

The Old Inn Crawfordsburn Wedding | Rachel & David

Rachel & David got married on the 8th of December at the Crawfordsburn Old Inn. After the ceremony, we made our way to Crawfordsburn Country Park, before returning to the Old Inn for the wedding reception.

This day for us did not start as we had hoped. There was a snowstorm the night before so we knew that travelling conditions would be difficult so we left extra early. However even with leaving early, it took us over 3 hours to reach Crawfordsburn because of the traffic and the difficult driving conditions. It was absolutely worth it though as this was a really fun wedding to be a part of.

Rachel had stayed at the Old Inn the night before so we met up with her and the rest of the ladies in there room to photograph everyone getting ready. Throughout the morning, it was obvious how excited Rachel and everyone else was for the day ahead. David arrived a little later in the day and we were able to grab a few quick photos with him before the ceremony.

The Old Inn has its own unique atmosphere and with the fire roaring and the Christmas tree in the corner, the ceremony had quite a festive feel, which was perfect for this time of the year. After the ceremony we headed of too Crawfordsburn Country Park with Rachel & David. It was a bitter cold day and it rained and snowed but we made the most of it.

Once back at the hotel it was time for the speeches, which were funny and emotional. Rachel’s dad even brought along her favourite childhood toy for the party as well as presenting David with an elf’s outfit. (You had to be there to understand why) After dinner, everyone rocked out to one of Northern Ireland’s best wedding bands Fusion, who are one of our personal favourites.
