– Wedding Photographer Old Court Chapel | Jade + AJ –

This wedding was so much fun. Jade and AJ just have that in their DNA, I think. They’re lovely to be around and I think their families share the same approach to life!

Old Court Chapel is incredibly beautiful. It’s right on Strangford Lough, tucked away in a corner all of its own. The views are really lovely everywhere you turn. These guys made it their own for the day, and everything felt completely relaxed and welcoming. High-end wedding suppliers zipping all over the place in the background, but just this lovely calm vibe for the whole day…

It was good to see familiar faces too, with some couples from other weddings I’d shot being amongst the wedding party.

Thirteen hours is a *long* day, but it went all too soon. I arrived for bridal prep around half past nine, and stayed for much of the dancing … and I loved it.

Anyway. Photos …

    Larchfield Estate Wedding Photographer | Krys & Ross

    groom and bride walking for photos during drinks reception
    I was walking along a beach on the north coast when I first got to chat to Krys about her wedding to Ross.

    She found me through Floral Earth, who were already booked for flower duty. As I walked, I pretended to myself that the beach was actually my office.

    I felt on the same wavelength as Krys about a style of photography that would suit the venue, Larchfield Estate. It’s one of my favourite spots in Northern Ireland, and I was really excited when the wedding finally came around.

    The day was every bit as good as I’d expected. My only regret is that I didn’t set up an IV caffeine drip to keep me going past the 13 or so hours I shot with them. I’m pretty sure the partying continued long into the night …

      Aisling + Pauric | Wedding photographer Errigal Country House

      Wedding photographer Errigal Country House Hotel

       
      This wedding was class. A riot of love and laughter in the depths of the Cavan countryside, at the Errigal Country House hotel. Actually the day started up in Tyrone, where Aisling and Pauric are from, with the ceremony in Fivemiletown. Then we headed down through Co. Monaghan to get to the reception at the Errigal. A few photos along the way, of course. But either way, my lasting memory is of a summer wedding with two beauts who rocked the whole day. I loved it.
       
      Here are some favourite shots …

        2018 Wedding Photography Highlights

        belfast portrait photographer

        Happy New Year, belatedly.

        2018 was some year too. There were so many lovely moments to relive whilst picking some favourite shots for this post. One dad’s tears at the sight of his girl now looking so grown up and so beautiful. Nerves before the ceremony and the sheer relief heading down the aisle together afterwards. Embraces from friends not seen in too long. Shapes cut on the dance floor …

        Being there to capture it all has been awesome. Again. What a job.

        It’s humbling to get really kind feedback too once everything is done. This summer, Aisling said “The pictures are fantastic Jonathan. I can’t believe you were able to capture so much. You’re worth your weight in gold.”

        I’ll take that.

        Thanks so much to everyone who I worked with last year. I can’t wait to get stuck in again in 2019…

          Family photographer Northern Ireland | Coastal Portrait

          Our children grow so quickly. School rolls on. The weeks slip by and the weekends clock up. Then, they’re growing out of their clothes. We stand them up straight against the kitchen door and pull out the measuring tape. And there it is. They’ve grown – and we didn’t even see it happen.

          The last time I shot with Nadine and Donal’s beautiful family, Issy wasn’t walking. Now, I could hardly keep up. Thank heavens for auto-focus …

            Claire + David | Belfast Wedding Photographers

            documentary wedding photographer

            Winter weddings have a habit of turning out really sweetly. Maybe it’s that coming in from the cold never felt so good. There’s something that just works, anyway.

            Claire and David’s was the same. Claire rocked the whole day in a stunning and unique dress, despite the cold, and David was looking very fine too. By the time the drinks and the dancing got going later on, I’m sure everyone was as smitten as I was. It’s always good to get back to The Merchant to shoot a wedding as well. It’s known as a super luxurious spot in Belfast with good reason.

            Here are a few favourites from the day.

              Lizzie + Andrew | Wedding Photographers Donegal

              Wedding Photographers Donegal

              Weddings are full-on, roller-coaster days for us wedding photographers. We see so much on the day, and feel it all pretty intensely too. Looking back over Lizzie and Andrew’s wedding photos to pick some out, it all came back. It was bracingly cold, beautifully wild (well, Donegal, so you know …), and unswervingly passionate. Lizzie’s laugh and Andrew’s dry wit come back to mind especially. And Lizzie’s dress. And Andrew’s dance moves, which were all kinds of awesome.

              It was great to get back to this corner of Donegal too. Might have to move in soon.

              Here are a few highlights. I hope you enjoy looking through them …

                Claire + Jack | Northern Ireland Garden Wedding

                first dance photos

                Claire and Jack’s wedding was a first for me in more ways than one. My first trip to Ringdufferin House, my first Jewish wedding, and my first garden wedding (some garden, too). I loved it. So much to see from behind the camera, wherever I turned.

                Claire and Jack are just made for each other as well. So smitten and happy. It was great to be with them both and all their guests for the whole day.

                Here’s how I saw things …
