Welcome to the first blog of 2019! The first of MANY. (No I really mean it, there are so many weddings from the past 18 months that are just incredible. I need to show them! Inspiration aplenty.)
I first met Nicola and James way back in November 2015, when I was acting as wedding photographer for Nicolas bestie, Jane. I remember sneaking a little photo of them on that day, when they were in a little bubble of their own, totally unaware I was there (click this link to see!)
Little did I know I would be shooting their own wedding some three years later. The bridesmaid became the bride. It’s a great privilege when you are invited back, especially for such a good humoured and funny group of friends.
Nicola is a former Rose of Tralee representative for Armagh. When I first leaked a few images from their wedding, a few people thought it was a styled shoot. No. This is a real life bride on her wedding day. And they are simply a stunning couple! They met way back in the day at the Canal Court, the ballroom of romance 😀 James impressed Nicola with his jiving skills. These were put to great use later on in the evening, indoors as well as outdoors when the entire wedding crowd had an impromptu Opera singing competition as they watched a spectacular fireworks display. So much fun! I have never seen anything like this at a wedding before. Everyone standing in the mizzly rain, singing opera to each other, laughing, hugging, all the while fireworks lighting up the sky. Perfect days indeed.
Much love and many years of happiness to these two! x
