The day was finally upon us and it was time to help celebrate and photograph the wedding of Darryl & Billy. This date had been one that I’ve been looking forward to for quite a while as I knew it was going to be a day to remember, I wasn’t wrong there and the boys celebrated in style. They had planned to get ready in separate locations and they had their own teams of bridesmaids to help with their preparation. The whole day was to be held at Emirates Spinnake Tower in Gunwharf Quays, so straight away there was going to be a huge wow factor about the day.
It was a absolute honour to be asked to photograph their special day as they had originally seen my work from Darryl’s cousins wedding a few years back and to share their journey over the year really was a lovely privilege. I was to start the day with Billy and his.... what I can only describe as “crazy” bunch of bridesmaids. It was dangerous for a single man to step into a room with these girls but I must say it was great fun and we all had such a laugh. It was a afternoon full of laughter, fun, giggles, tears but one thing was clear and that was the love that everyone had for each other. Here are a selection of images that I captured in the preparation stages with Billy and the girls…
After a short journey around the corner, it was time to meet up with Darryl and his team of bridesmaids who were all getting ready at Darryl’s mums house. Its always lovely to see some familiar faces and today was no exception as I have know the family for many years and they are always a pleasure to be around and without fail always a great laugh. Darryl’s preparation was a lot more chilled thou and it was nice to have a bit of chill time from the crazy crew around the corner.
As with most of my couples, the mornings preparation always flies by and before you know it, time is running out and we need to get those final preparations in place before our handsome couple tie the knot. Here are some images I capture of Darryl’s preparation before he left home to meet the love of his life at the end of the aisle…
I would just like to take this moment to say a huge thank you to both Darryl & Billy for letting me be such a big part of their special day. I can honestly hand on heart say that it was such a beautiful breath taking day and the love you have for each other is infectious. It was so lovely to watch you both become the beautiful couple we see before us and I would just like to wish you all the happiness for the future and all the little adventures you have planned.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to all of your friends and family for a day full of fun & laughter. I had such a great day and you guys really did keep me on my toes from the word go.
