Wedding of Samantha & William at Kiltonga Hall with reception at Strangford Arms Hotel.
This was my first time photographing a wedding at Kiltonga Hall. It's a very intimate venue for smaller weddings with some gardens outside, and the sunshine definitely helps too. Disclaimer - Sunshine not always guaranteed!
I arrived and met William for some photos outside where I was also introduced to my little helper for the day... Jenson. Apparently he is normally very camera shy, or so I had been told, but he was more than happy to stand posing for me long before any of the other guests appeared.
Samantha arrived looking very nervous but the ceremony didn't take long and everyone was soon back outside enjoying the good weather. Samantha told me when we met up afterwards that she can't even remember the photographs being taken during the ceremony, so always make sure to relax and enjoy it!
After the group photos outside Kiltonga Hall (and some in a truck from a very willing driver) we then drove across to the Strangford Arms Hotel. The room and wedding cake were all set up so we got a few shots there before Samantha & William went out to the balcony to relax with their friends and family.
Once we dragged everyone back inside, it was time for the lineup and the speeches, followed by a delicious meal which was very much appreciated! The only thing left to do was to move the tables and dance the night away.
I have had some truly wonderful couples this year, including Samantha & William who were so laid back, it was a pleasure to photograph their day.
