Wedding of Louise & Darren at Marine Court Hotel in Bangor with photographs at the Walled Garden.
First stop was to find Louise and all the ladies getting ready in her mum's house. Plenty going on with makeup and hair in full swing, plus Lucy & Lola running around keeping everyone on their toes! I think Lucy set the record for photos with her tongue sticking out or making a funny face!
A little rain shower on the way to Bangor made me panic slightly but the sun was out again soon enough thankfully. I found Darren looking a bit nervous in the bar so I tried to distract him and the groomsmen with a few quick photographs before the action started.
Didn't take long for Louise and her bridesmaids to arrive, then it was straight upstairs for the ceremony and to make everything official.
Afterwards we drove round to the Walled Garden for some group photographs. Plenty of visitors to the garden at this time of year so it can be difficult to get photos without people in the background... but sure it would be boring if it was easy!
The bridal party went back to the hotel when we were finished, I then kept Louise & Darren for a little while longer to get their photos. We finished up just in time for the rain to start so rushed back to the car. They kindly let me catch a lift back with them, it was a highlight for me being in a 1960's Bentley!
Back at the Marine Court Hotel, we went upstairs for some photos in the honeymoon suite and a chance for the new Mr & Mrs to relax for a while. Great views from the balcony over the harbour and busy funfair across the street.
Then it was back down to Nelson's bar for some natural photos of everyone mingling and having a chat. I even got a few more photos of Lucy doing her poses as you'll see in the slideshow below!
The speeches went down a treat and so did the food that Louise & Darren kindly got for me too! (Thanks folks!)
After dinner I found an unattended table with sweets on it... so one or two may have gone missing. Purely for research purposes you understand!
The lights were dimmed and entertainment was soon set up and ready to go. Next up was the first dance!
