A beautiful summer’s day for Sarah and Declan’s Carlingford Wedding. I always like to give a sense of story and place to my wedding photographs. Carlingford makes for a perfect backdrop to wedding photographs. I photographed the majority of Sarah and Declan’s wedding candidly.
Therefore to capture the atmosphere of the day in a natural and unobtrusive manner which they both really appreciated. Primarily I like to keep things simple and not make a fuss.
I met with Sarah and her wedding party at The Four Season Hotel to photograph the bridal preparations. If you are photographing a wedding in a documentary style are always a nice part of the story.
I photographed all the preparations candidly. I find you capture nicer moments if people are relaxed and do not feel like they have to pose. It was then on to The Carlingford Heritage Centre for a lovely wedding ceremony in a beautiful setting.
After the ceremony, I set off with Sarah and Declan to take pictures around the town. I had visited Carlingford about a month before the wedding. I planned out a route for the walk taking in the mediaeval streets.
The Lovely Wedding Route in this Carlingford Wedding
The Tholsel, the remains of Dominican Friary and down to Carlingford Lough is a lovely route. Finding nice backdrops is always one of your primary concerns as a wedding photographer. In Carlingford, you have a load of choices.
I primarily photographed the couple walking through the town of Carlingford. It was like they were taking a nice walk on their wedding day and not posing for photographs.
It took about 30 minutes so Sarah and Declan did not miss too much of their wedding party. We arrived back at The Four Season Hotel Carlingford for a lovely wedding reception. The Four Season gardens were a nice spot for the family pictures.
Sarah and Declan were delighted with their photographs. It is always one of the most rewarding parts of wedding photography for me.
