wedding photographer sligoI was a Formula 1 photographer in another life (almost 20 years ago, feels like another life at this stage!!) so I’ve photographed a few champagne moments…Fernando Alonso, Michael Schumacher etc on the podium! But it’s during wedding mornings that I’ve nearly been taken out by flying champagne corks, on more than one occasion!!

On arriving at Ciara’s home here in this image, the ladies were getting ready to pop the champagne and this image is part of a sequence I took, that sequence being the first few images I shot that day, no warming up with detail shots, just straight into some action shots! I was barely ready to shoot this…probably as ready as Ciara was for the cork to fly like it did!! Like most documentary wedding photos, it’s the reactions and emotions in the photo that bring you into that photo…Ciara’s reaction, the bridesmaids, mum of the bride! The flying cork getting captured in the photo is an absolute bonus!

From the full sequence I have from just before, to this image, to the next few with champagne spilling everywhere, and all the ladies laughing, this is my favourite, and the one where you know exactly what is going on!
