Emma and James rode the Covid wedding wave like many other couples in 2020. Their day was originally supposed to be in May but they decided to postpone until August. Turns out their date in May was a total wash out, but in August the shone shone down on them in more ways than one.

      Emma, a fashion designer, made her bespoke bridesmaids dresses herself and it was a real treat to document Emma in her design studio on her wedding morning along with her sewing machine. These are all the small things that make documenting a wedding so personal and allows me to tell the real story of you. Her carefully selected colour palette and use of dried and pressed florals throughout the decor brought a delicate touch to the plan.

      Emma and James wed in the most picturesque country church around, on the outskirts of Baronscourt Estate. The light streaming in on their day was something else. One might even call it Godly.

      After a quick pit stop at the family home for refreshments, Emma and James travelled to the beautiful Old Rectory Estate in Killyman to meet the remainder of their guests that due to Covid-19 regulations, were not able to attend their ceremony.

      Needless to say the greeting they got was electric. At a time in our lives when restrictions were lifting and before we knew what was ahead of us in the winter of 2020, everyone was loving being out, getting a chance to catch up and celebrate a wedding happening that had previously had to be postponed! Their guests were extra happy to seem them as Mr & Mrs at last!

      The grounds on the Old Rectory Estate are a photographers dream and the owners, Emma & Paul are continually adding new features and making the guest experience even more special. The lovely thing about having a venue with gardens and grounds is that you don’t have to go far to create beautiful portraits- meaning you can get back to your guests and party all the faster.

      When the bell rings for dinner call, it’s the perfect time to slip out with your photographer for some chilled, quiet portraits. It also give you both a bit of a breather before heading into to speeches, dinner and party time!
