Wedding of Kelsey & Stuart at Loughshore Hotel, Carrickfergus.
First up was a trip to see Stuart and the groomsmen who were getting ready around the corner from Kelsey. The guys all had their kilts on early and were ready to go, so it was just a few quick photos with the champagne and it was time for house number two.
The makeup and hair were already underway when I arrived but I had plenty to keep me on my toes...
It's almost becoming a tradition for me to have a little helper on the day of the wedding. This time around it was Miley who followed me around the house asking to take photos of anything (and everything) with her Mum's phone. She even managed to completely fill the memory card before we left the house! Quite good at posing though as you can see, so all is forgiven.
I arrived at the Loughshore Hotel under a very grey sky but luckily the rain stayed away. Took a few photos of the rings and the room before the bridesmaids arrived, followed by Kelsey & her Dad.
Little bit of an emotional ceremony but it all held together nicely, I think Kelsey & Stuart were both relieved when they got back outside for some air.
It was then time for a group photo with everyone, which is normally one of the most challenging parts of the day, followed by a visit to Carrickfergus Castle with the happy couple. Not sure where the strong winds suddenly arrived from when we got there but it's one way to speed up the process! None of us could wait to get back to the hotel and relax.
Next up were the group photos on the staircase, followed by the speeches where Stuart presented Kelsey with a cook book, much to everyone's amusement. I'll keep my comments to myself on that one! Then it was dinner where I got a really nice meal (thanks folks!) and a catch up with Victoria & Adrian who's wedding I photographed last year.
The DJ and dancing were right on schedule... and just when I thought all the surprises had finished, the Irish Cup showed up for some photos too!
