Bellingham Castle Weddings

Bellingham Castle Weddings

With so many venues for weddings around Ireland, as a wedding photographer, you get to travel alot and see alot of wedding venues.  It is unusual to be in the same venue two days in a row and even stranger to be in the one venue 3 weddings in a row.  This is what has happened this last week.  Each wedding was stunning and I could not pick one to blog, so I have decided to show the diversity of Bellingham Castle for wedding photographs.  Three very different brides and styles.  This is why each wedding is unique and exciting.  First is Claire and Ryan who were married in St Peters' in Lurgan and then travelled to Bellingham Castle.

Claire was so pleased with the service at Petticoat Lane in Hillsoborough for getting the flowergirls dress in on time for the wedding as it is part of the 2017 range. We should be seeing alot more of this floral fabric in weddings in 2017.  When you have a little girl, the wedding day is huge for both bride and her daughter.  I love this shot of her wearing her mums fab gold heels with the angel wing backs.

When Claire was ready, she did the big reveal as she walked down the stairs.  Her daughter was so excited to watch.

Emma and Ryan were married in Newry Cathedral and later held their reception in Bellingham Castle.  Emma was so elegant in her delicate couture gown and Jimmy Choo shoes.

As Emma was dressed, her dad handed her a glass of champagne.  I love this natural shot as she sipped the champagne.  This is a reflection on one of the doors and I just love the feel of it.    As Emma left her family home, we captured this beautiful image showing off the back of the dress.

While we were photographing all this elegance and regal styling, the boys were up to something much different.  Ryan farms sheep. He bought the boys new huntsmen wellies and their morning starting in the fields

The third wedding was Sinead and Pascal.  They got ready on Bellingham Estate on the grounds of the castle in The Coach House.  Anyone getting married in Bellingham Castle  should really consider the Coach House.  I will let the photographs do the talking.

The staircase, landing, bedrooms and hall were all opulent, huge and designed to allow in the most beautiful light.

Downstairs there was a large conservatory area where the girls had breadfast prepared, and area for hair and make up and still lots of room for lounging around.

Just as we were about to get into the car to head to the church, we spotted a rope swing hanging from a tree.  We just had to use it for a quick photograph.

After the weddings we headed straight for Bellingham Castle for the wedding photographs.  Below is a selection of wedding photographs from each of the weddings to showcase the amazing wedding venue of Castle Bellingham.  Autumn is my favourite time of year and each day was dry and allowed us to use the stunning backdrop and captue the fabulous colours.
