Rachael & Glenn got married on the 29th of July at Ballyscullion Park in Bellaghy. It was a truly beautiful day with a lovely couple and it is easy to see from the photographs why Ballyscullion Park has immediately become one of our favourite wedding venues.
We met up with Rachael and her bridesmaids at her Mum and Dad's home in Carrickfergus to photograph everyone getting ready. It was a nice and relaxed morning, we knew it would be having got to know Rachael a little better when we shot their engagement session at Crawfordsburn Country Park.
After arriving at Ballycullion we met up with a very excited Glenn. The weather in the morning had not been great, but just before we arrived the Sun came out which allowed Rachael & Glenn to have a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Ballycullion’s Strawberry Garden. After the ceremony, the heavens opened and it absolutely poured down and everyone had to run for cover. Thankfully, it did not last long though and we were soon exploring the grounds around the venue.
Ballyscullion is a stunning wedding venue, an absolute dream to work in for a wedding photographer in Northern Ireland and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The grounds offer many interesting places to use for photography, including a few areas that you can use when the weather is not ideal.
While the venue was amazing, the best part about this wedding was the couple themselves. Rachael and Glenn are childhood sweethearts and have already been together for a long time. There excitement for both their wedding and the love they have for each other was easy to see and was very infectious. Every single person that attended this wedding had huge smiles on their faces all day. We loved all the little details they had incorporated into their wedding day with our favourite being the story of our lives table plan.
