Rural Loughguile Church & Lissanoure Castle Wedding: Claire & Zeedan

It was a chilly morning at the beginning of April when we headed off to Claire and Zeedan’s Lissanoure Castle wedding. It was an early start that day for us as Lissanoure Castle a bit of a drive from Belfast. We met up with Claire and her ladies quite early on at Claire’s parents house in Belfast. It was all calm at the house with Claire’s own sister (one of the Bridesmaids) doing everyone’s hair! Even the cat was relaxed. We got some great shots of the details and of the girls getting ready before we hit the road for All Saint’s church and Lissanoure.

We arrived at the church and met up with Zeedan and his boys, and our old friend the Rev Canon Tom Keightley, We have worked a few times with Tom and its always a pleasure to meet up with him. He is always very accommodating and puts everyone at their ease.

We headed out to get some shots with Zeedan and the lads while we waited for all the guests to start arriving. Claire and Zeedan live in England and so had hired a bus to bring all of their English Guests from their hotel in Belfast up to Lissanoure.

Belfore we knew it Claire and the girls were coming up the drive in the fantastic cars from David Lyttle Wedding Cars don’t the girls look lovely.

Once Claire arrived everyone was keen to get into the Church as although the sun was shining it was very windy and quite chilly for April. so we took some quick shots of Claire with her dad and the bridesmaids and then headed on in.

Tom performed a beautiful service full of touching incites as he had been Claire’s minister since she was a child. We were able to get some fantastic intimate shots both of Claire and Zeedan and of their guests.

Following the service, we headed up to Lissanoure Castle itself and then out around the grounds to get some intimate shots of Claire and Zeedan.

Claire was an absolute star and didn’t complain once that she was cold and it was very cold by this point!

We headed back to the main courtyard to get this cracking group shot and everyone headed in for Dinner. The meal was expertly provided by Posh Nosh

Following dinner we managed to persuade Claire to head out again for a few shots before her we gathered all the girls together for Claire’s bouquet toss.

After the first dance we headed off leaving everyone to party the night away.
