Belfast City Hall Wedding
Tara and Ryan
Tara and Ryan celebrated a Belfast City Hall wedding in the early autumn. The couple had a low key and intimate ceremony shared with close friends and family. Tara, a photographer originally from Belfast met Ryan, a videographer from New Orleans whilst working aboard cruise ships. A creative fun loving couple perfectly suited to one another.
On meeting the couple I was excited by their enthusiasm for their wedding photography as we worked through different ideas for their shot list. I could have felt pressure working with such a creative pair but in many ways it was easy and although it was a relatively short day, is one of my favourite weddings to date.
Together with the ceremony of their Belfast City Hall wedding we wanted to capture the grandeur of this magnificent building. One of the finest buildings in Northern Ireland I focused on it’s striking architecture inside and out.
After some formal family shots we jumped into a taxi taking us the short distance to the Duke Of York. One of the oldest and most popular Irish pubs in town I wanted to capture it’s quirky character and charm. It was still early in the day and the wet cobblestone streets were empty for the most part as was the pub. This allowed us to get the best shots without any distractions.
After enjoying some Guinness the wedding entourage made it’s way to Rayanne House in Holywood, County Down for their dinner party. The couple had decked the house and drive with Mardi Gras beads and umbrellas, a traditional New Orleans touch to the quaint Tudor country house.
It was a special day and a wonderful celebration for the happy couple.
Here is a selection of my favourite images from the day. I hope you enjoy them.
