AUTUMN WEDDING AT BELLE ISLE ESTATE
Wedding Photographers Northern Ireland
When Claire and Padraig first got in touch with me about their Belle Isle Estate wedding in Enniskillen, I was so thrilled – they were planning the most beautiful autumnal wedding with a church ceremony, a relaxed reception at Belle Isle and even a fireworks display. Claire and Padraig seemed like the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I turned up at Claire’s, where the bride and her family was getting ready. It was so relaxed. Everyone was in a great mood. Claire wore the most timeless dress (with pockets!!!!!!) and veil which she had their names stitched into! Look at that stunning bouquet. Such gorgeous, vibrant colours.
The wedding took place in a church where Clare’s mum walked her up the aisle. They had close family and friends perform the music and their lovely little nieces and nephews did the readings which was so beautiful. After the ceremony the couple skipped back down the aisle together to greet everyone as they left the church. After a few group shots, we made our way to the beautiful Belle Isle Estate.
Belle Isle Estate
The wedding reception took place Belle Isle Estate, which was adorned with gorgeous flowers and Edison bulbs. It was so unique. Everyone took full advantage of the gorgeous rooms in Belle Isle Estate and mingled over canapes and cocktails.
It was a overcast, crisp Autumn day, which was perfect for photos. We wandered off for a short while for some lovely portraits of them both. My favourite photo from our portrait session is this beautiful black and white photo of Clare and Padraig in front of the ivy on Belle Isle Estate.
During the reception they had live music, which gave the afternoon a really chilled vibe. They had the most amazing dessert buffet after the meal. It was super yummy. After dinner they had some wonderful speeches, then everyone was called outside for a sparkler sendoff and the couple surprised everyone with fireworks!
Then the epic dancing started!
Here’s their beautiful October wedding!
