Martina & Thomas, Wedding, Belleek Castle, Ballina, Co.Mayo
Last Friday I shot Martina & Thomas’ super relaxed wedding in Belleek Castle near Ballina. With the ceremony taking place in the pretty newly open old stables on the castle grounds, which I have to say is one of the nicest rooms I’ve shot in for a ceremony…it oozes character!
With everybody ready really earlier in the afternoon, Martina & Thomas decided to do a first touch, and have a quick chat with each other before the ceremony, but without actually seeing each other. I’ve done this once before last year, and it’s a really nice touch to relax everybody!
Following the gorgeous ceremony it started drizzling so we all retreated to the warmth of the castle where the bride & groom met & chatted with all their guests. It’s a challenge inside some of the castle as it can be quite dark, but thankfully they had a beautiful dining room we were able to use for family photos, and when push came to shove, the bride & groom & bridal party braved a bit of the gentle rain & we found some shelter outside & got some nice relaxed portraits outside!
With the speeches taking place before the meal, I captured them before making my journey back to Sligo to prepare for the following days wedding!!
Congrats again Martina & Thomas!
