Homemade Intimate City Hall and Merchant Wedding: Carly & Matt
Carly and Matt held their Homemade intimate wedding at Belfast city Hall followed by dinner in the Merchant Hotel. it was a fantastic day you all know how much graham loves a small wedding and this one was perfect with just 30 guests in total!
We started the day at Carly and Matt’s home. Unusually the couple decided to get ready together, which was really lovely. it made for a really relaxed morning, with them getting themselves and their wee ones ready. The fantastic Claire Gibson was there to do hair and makeup for Carly and Penelope Flowers provided Carly’s bouquet and the buttonholes. We started off getting some shots of the girls getting ready, before we nipped off to get some shots of Carly’s dress which was hand made by Carly’s mum! we then got a few shots of all the little details of the jewellery and shoes, I just love her bright red shoes don’t you! Before it was time head to town for the wedding we got some great shots with the boys outside with Carly’s dad’s vintage CV.
We headed off to Belfast city hall for the ceremony and took some time getting shots of Matt around the grounds before the girls arrived. We got the some great shots of Carly and her dad and brother just outside the ceremony room before it was time to all head in. It was a lovely ceremony full of laughter.
Following the ceremony we headed off around town to get the couple shots. These were really important to Carly and Matt and they were super sports. We spend about a hour with them walking from City hall to the Merchant Hotel stopping off all the way to get these stunning shots of them. We feel we were able to really capture these guys personality as it was such a relaxed shoot, stopping at the big fish and a café and at this book shop and not forgetting the fun on the Belfast bikes! they were super fun to shoot.
Soon enough we arrived at the Merchant and got some shots of the room and the family shots before everyone went in for dinner and we headed off home.
