Colourful Eglantine Parish Church & Riverdale Barn Wedding: Rebecca & Jonathan
Rebecca & Jonathan chose to have get married and hold a lovely Colourful Eglantine Parish Church & Riverdale Barn Wedding. It was a bit of a funny day for us as we also had a wedding show on that day in Belfast. You may remember Rebecca from a post earlier in the year where she was a bridesmaid at Naomi and Glenn’s wedding, Naomi was also Rebecca’s Bridesmaid and both girls booked at the wedding Journal show at the same time! so its as if wedding shows were meant to be for these girls! So we started the day with Rebecca at her Mum and Dads house. We arrived and got straight on with getting shots of Rebecca’s dress from Divinity Bridal and her gorgeous Irregular Choice shoes. We then got some lovely shots of the other details including the bridesmaids dresses.
WE headed across the road to Rebecca’s old school to get some great shots of her flowers from Imagine Flowers don’t they look lovely! and of course we couldn’t resist getting some of this little one!
We headed back inside and got some lovely shots of the girls getting ready before it was time to head off to the church.
We arrived at Eglantine Parish Church and met up with the Johnny and his lads, We headed inside and got some great shots of the Church itself. Then of the boys outside, while the guests arrived and we waited for Rebecca and the ladies. As I said We were also doing a wedding fayre this weekend so Hannah headed off then back to the SSE Arena leaving Graham at the church.
We got some great shots of the church and of Johnny then it was time for the ladies to arrive. They travelled in style in the fantastic VW Bus and Beetle from Star Cars.
We got some great shots outside the church before it was time for everyone to head on in and for the service to get underway. The Service was conducted by Rev. Timothy Close, and it was a very touching service filled with the couples own personal touches.
Following the service everyone headed off to Riverdale Barn with Graham getting a lift with Glenn from Naomi and Glenn’s wedding who very kindly volunteered to take him on to the reception venue so I could stay on at the wedding fayre. When they arrived at Riverdale Barn Graham Headed off around the grounds with the new mr and mrs assisted by the lovely Naomi who stepped in to my shoes and by all accounts was an absolute star.
Rebecca and Johnny had an engagement shoot with us back last year and it really helps calm the nerves for the photos on the day, I think you will agree they look absolutely stunning in these shots!
We then got the rest of the bridal party and got some great shots of them before it was time to head on into the barn for dinner.
Rebecca and Johnny had put in a lot of effort decorating their room for their gests and I think you will agree it looked amazing I particularly like their Dinosaur cake topper!
Before everyone else headed in for dinner Rebecca did a bouquet toss and look at this week princess who caught it making all the grown ups jealous! Once everyone was in for dinner., Rebecca and Johnny had one last surprise for their guests. The Amazing Cameoflage. We think these guys are brilliant and always enjoy the show when we see them.
Following the show it was time for speeches, which were funny and heartfelt by which time Hannah had arrived back to collect graham so as everyone began to tucking to there dinner we headed off home.
