Bethany & Ricky, 30th September 2016, Burrendale Hotel Newcastle

Yesterday we had the pleasure of photographing Ricky and Bethany’s wedding day. At the start of the week the weather forecast was giving rain, and as the days went on the wind started to get worse each day, come to the big day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. I began by heading to Bethany’s to photograph the girls get ready for the day ahead. Hair was by Danielle of Danielle’s unisex hair studio and makeup was by Martina – Essence of Beauty. Everyone was nice and calm and all the wee-uns were full of beans having the craic! The next stop was to photograph the lads get ready. Lads really have it easy compared to girls, 5 minutes and we’re ready! Service was held at Kilhorne Parish Annalong. After the service everyone went into the church hall for a bite to eat and cup of tea before making our way to Tollymore Forest Park for a few photographs. When the photographs were finished we then headed to the Burrendale Hotel and Country Club where the reception was held. We were treated to a nice big ice cream on arrival supplied by Johnny’s Cool Ice-Cream Trikes. Thanks very much for having me as part of your big day, it was brilliant craic all day. I hope you had a great day and have a fantastic honeymoon! Here are a few images of what we got up to below.
