Tranquil Summer Clandeboye Lodge Wedding: Jordan & Darren
There are certain venues that we just love to shoot at. Places that we are so familiar with they are like our second home. Clandeboye Lodge, near Bangor in County Down is one of those places. It is a beautiful venue set within its own landscape gardens. For a time you would forget you are in the ratrace, and just think you had retired to your own country pad. So when Darren and Jordan booked us to photograph their Sunday Summer Clandeboye Lodge Wedding there we were happy to be going home. Here are some of our favourite shots from the day.
We Started the day with Jordan at her parents house, we got some great shots of her dress including these fab ones hung on a large window. We also got some great shots of Jordan to make her dads day on his pride and joy, his sparkly clean Harley Davidson motor bike. We spent some time taking shots of all the little details in Jordan’s Mums craft room. Hannah said that we should send a photo of this to her mum as its everything she wants to turn her old room into in wales 😉
We then headed off to meet Darren and his lads at the hotel, we got some casual shots of them around the grounds and at the love seat, and of course looking just a little bit nervous up in the blackwood suite.
soon enough Jordan and her bridesmaid arrived and it was time for the ceremony.
following that we headed back out into the grounds for a group shot I decided to mix it up a bit this time and rather than taking everyone out to the front of the hotel we set it up in the back of the hotel and I looked out one of the blackwood suites windows. This was because it was such a lovely day that most of the guests had headed out there following the ceremony so it seemed such a shame to move everyone around to the front of the hotel just for one shot.
We then headed around the grounds with the couple to get some cracking intimate shots of them before we headed up to the reception room to see the set up and to photograph the cake, or should I say cakes which were provide by the fabulous J-Bird Bakery 🙂
It was soon time for dinner and speeches, which were funny and warm making the whole crowd feel welcome.
We finished the evening with the couples first dance before heading home.
