I was delighted when an old childhood friend got in touch to ask if I would be free to photograph her sister's wedding back home in Northern Ireland over the Christmas holidays.  

Anne and Neil would say their vows in Anne's home Church in Garvagh and celebrate at one of Northern Ireland's top wedding venues, the Galgorm.

The wedding ceremony was held in Anne's home Church, St Pauls Church of Ireland, Garvagh.  

They decorated it beautifully, with gold and glass lanterns along the aisle, and delicate arrangements of roses tied with white ribbons at the end of the pews.

Congratulations, Anne and Neil!  Thank-you for picking me to be your wedding photographer.  It was such a fun and relaxed day, with so many thoughtful little details you'd planned to make sure your family and friends had a day to remember.
