I always ask the wedding day priorities of my couples. It’s so important to me to capture faithfully what truly means the most to them. Which is why it’s the first question I ask when we start to plan your wedding day timeline.
For Elaine and Adam their priorities were their first look as the bride walked down the aisle to meet her groom and photos with their bridal party and close family.
Bride and Groom Wedding Day Preparations
We began the day covering bride and groom prep which were both based in Omagh. Elaine at her home and Adam across town with his grooms party at the Silverbirch Hotel. It was really important for them to have a relaxed and comfortable environment on their wedding morning so they curated their surroundings and plans carefully. For example, their bridal party elevated their experience and helped them to remain calm and organised. Their suppliers were chosen that shared their vision and ethos and they had their attire organised and hung ready to dress.
Wedding Day Details
Details matter. These elements, meticulously chosen, become the visual and tactile memories that make the day truly personal and unforgettable. I really enjoy documenting your details in an artistic way that will introduce your day perfectly on the opening pages of your wedding album. Elaine curated a beautiful and bold set of wedding day details which truly reflected her personal style. Jude Mitchell from High Maintenance did hair and another talented bride of mine, Zara Henderson from Zara’s Beauty Hut created a stunning and natural make up look.
Elaine’s showstopping gown was found at Ivy and White and the designer is Laudae. The statement sleeves are so dreamy!
As the bridal party had planned their morning with such thoughtfulness, there was plenty of time to document a special reveal with Elaine’s mum and capture lots of photos before leaving for the ceremony. Logybear Campervan Hire provided the cutest of wedding day transport in their baby pink camper for the bridesmaids and cream soft top Beetle for the bride.
Wedding Ceremony Photos
Elaine and Adam’s ceremony was held in Omagh. They added personal touches with carefully chosen readings and music from Nicola Moody. It was a beautifully sunny day and they arranged an ice cream cart for their guests to cool off after the vows.
A confetti toss was such a fun way to close this portion of their heading before travelling by camper to the Manor House Country Hotel to continue the celebrations.
