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.
