Miriam and Pierce decided on a traditional church wedding, held on a breezy summer’s day. What I enjoy about religious weddings is the wonderful atmosphere that builds in the church in the minutes before the bride arrives. Church buildings generally have great acoustics and the noise of friends and family arriving and greeting each other, taking their places, and having a catch up before the big moment lends itself to a wonderful sense of excitement as we wait for the bride to arrive.
After the ceremony, the guests headed off to the reception held at the Ferrycarrig Hotel, Co. Wexford whilst Miriam and Pierce joined me for a quick shoot by the beautiful Loftus Hall, a place that holds sentimental value for the bride. I managed to capture a great image of the couple here in the golden fields outside Loftus Hall. They enjoyed this moment alone together as husband and wife before returning to their gathered guests, eager to welcome them to their party.
The festivities went on into the night and I was there to capture the fun, including some lovely shots of the couple’s first dance. As you can see in the images here, Miriam’s stunning low back dress provided a glamourous edge to this rite-of-passage moment. A great evening was had by all.
