Tradition says a Child of Prague Statue in your garden guarantees good weather on your wedding day – Maria & Kevin’s day showed that he can also work his magic from a glass cupboard in the kitchen…
I arrived at Maria’s family home under a clear blue morning sky, and it stayed that way, more or less, throughout their day. Inside final preparations were made – to a very personal soundtrack DJ’ed by Maria herself – regardless of complaints from the rest of her bridal party that Scooter wasn't very wedding appropriate!
A quick drive St Patrick’s Church, Loughguile enabled me to catch up with Kevin & his Best Man & Groomsmen, who only had a short wait before the big event began… after a slight delay as the back rows of the congregation were ‘encouraged’ by Fr Gillen to move forward for a better view.
After the wedding ceremony it was straight onto the picturesque Ballyscullion Park which provided the sunny landscape for the rest of the day; with a quick spot of Gaelic Football & Hurling the bridal party really made the most of the wide open green spaces; The Gribben Girls, as in the church earlier, provided the soundscape throughout the afternoon – with Infinity Wedding Band taking over the evening duties.
So anyway, that’s more than enough words from me – I know you're here for the photos!!
It was a pleasure to spend Easter Monday at the wonderful Ballyscullion Park as I second shot with Natalie Doherty at Nadine & Cathal's Wedding... The joy of second shooting was not only the chance to watch a talented photographer work up close, but also having the freedom to indulge my love of documentary / candid wedding photography while wandering among Nadine & Cathal's guests as they enjoyed the bright spring day in the wide open spaces of Ballyscullion.
Here's a few of my shots from their special day.
