A Ballymagarvey Village Wedding . . . 

When Gillian and Curtis first got in touch about their wedding at Ballymagarvey Village, not far from Dublin in County Meath, it's fair to say that I started looking forward to it straight away. Ballymagarvey Village has quickly built a reputation as one of the most exclusive wedding venues in Ireland, and for very good reason!

I started the morning with Gillian and the girls in the purpose built bridal prep suite at Ballymagarvey, with coffees, croissants and prosecco were all in bountiful supply

I then headed to see Curtis and the lads, who had spent the morning at a local hotel, before heading down to The Snailbox pub just down the road from Ballymagarvey for a wee bit of dutch courage in the form of a pint of the local black stuff, expertly pulled by the man of the moment.

Back with the ladies it was all starting to get a little bit real for Gillian as she slipped in to her beautiful flowing two piece wedding dress and put the finishing touches to hair and make up, before taking the short but sweet walk to the ceremony room . . . . 

In the ceremony room a slightly nervous Curtis awaited his bride, who made her entrance to a stunned reception from family and friends for the emotional ceremony.

After walking back down the aisle as husband and wife there were plenty of hugs, smiles and congratulations before we all headed to the fabulous lawn for some drinks in the sunshine

In amongst all of the mingling we took a wee 15 minute break from the action for a quick walk and a talk to get some nice relaxed and natural images whilst strolling around the beautiful grounds at Ballymagarvey . . . 

With the guests assembled in the resplendent dining room it was time for the delicious wedding banquet, but not before some simultaneously entertaining and tear jerking speeches! 

With the light fading we headed outside for a few more shots before it was time for the first dance;

Family and Friends didn't need much persuasion to join Mr and Mrs B on the dance floor after Gillian and her Dad had finished rocking away , and I was on hand to get in amongst everyone with my cameras; 

I'll leave the story there with one last image from the beautiful Lantern Tree at Ballymagarvey Village. I loved showing this to Gillian and Curtis on the back of my camera screen at the time, just to prove that there is no computer trickery or Photoshop cheating going on!

Gillian and Curtis jetted off to the white sandy beaches of Jamaica with a brief visit to Florida for good measure, I hope you guys had half as good a time as I did at your wedding - thanks very much for having me!

If you are reading this and think that you might like me along to capture your wedding day in a nice relaxed and natural style (with a couple of creative shots like the last one in there too!) please just get in touch
