Autumnal Culloden Estate Wedding: Judith & Chris
Judith and Chris had their autumnal Culloden Estate wedding in the Saturday before Halloween, we started the day with Judith at her mum and dads house in Bangor. We arrived and the house was full of Judith’s Brides team all in their very own brides team t-shirts even her dad and brother! We got lots of shots of the details, Judith’s dress designed by Ronald Joyce from Pronuptia Bridal. her bridesmaids dresses, the shoes and the jewelry the ring Judith is wearing is in fact her mums. We nipped out into the garden to get the shots of the flowers provided by Fleuriste don’t they look stunning!
Before we left the girls there was enough time to get some great shots of them getting their hair and make-up done by Red Carpet Angels and of them having a sneaky champagne all while little Lara made use of the time to have a power nap before the main event of the day 😉 soon enough though it was time for us to leave the girls and head off to St peters to meet up with Chris and his lads.
We arrived at St Peters, Church of Ireland and got straight down to work getting all the little details in the church before the boys arrived. When the boys pulled up we got some great shots of them around the grounds of the church including these great shots with little Rory who I think stole the show.
We didn’t have to wait too long for the girls ad Judith was determined to be on time, so much in fact that at ten to the girls pulled up! Expertly driven by the boys from David Andrews wedding cars We got some great shots with the bridesmaids and Lara all refreshed from her nap before Judith pulled up. We took some quick shots at the door with her mum and dad and the bridesmaids before it was time to get the service underway.
The service was really lovely, with prayers and words from Father Eugene O’Hagan who Graham hasn’t seen since his Castleward days so it was great to catch up with him. The music was provided by the very talented Acro String quartet and The Chapel Choir from Methodist College who were truly breath taking thought-out the service.
Following the service we took the couple back into the church to get some stunning shots of them at the alter before we all got in to the cars and headed off to the Culloden Resort and Spa. We arrived at the Culloden and headed straight around the grounds with the couple to get these super shots.
We headed back in to the Stuart suite to the family photos and the group shot before dinner was served. Before Dinner were the speeches, Judith’s dad Chris and Chris’s Mum all spoke and they were truly heartfelt speeches before Father O’Hagan said grace and dinner was served.
Following Dinner the room was reset and the dancing began. The couple danced their first dance and for us it was time to slip away and let the guests party the night away.
