Relaxed Rustic Mill at Ballydugan Wedding: Grace & Terry

Grace & Terry had their rustic relaxed Mill at Ballydugan wedding earlier in the year. We had been out for engagement shoot with these guys back last year and it was great fun so we knew that there would be lots of craic on the wedding day. 

We started the day with Grace at her family home in Annalong getting lots of shots of the details, The dresses, the shoes and the jewellery. Of course not forgetting their 3 lovely wee pups. We got some lovely shots of the girls too before it was time to for us to shoot off up to the Mill to meet up with Terry and the lads.

We got some great shots of the boys with John, Terry’s brothers vintage Ford Serra Cosworth. the boys I think we more nervous than the girls had been! Soon enough it was time for everyone to head up to the top floor for and for us to get ready for the girl’s arrival. 

Once everyone was in place it was time for the Ceremony, Grace and Terry had chosen a slightly different layout for their ceremony with all their guests facing them & the aisle which was just lovely.  The ceremony was performed by Fred Cowan and it was really heartfelt.

Following the Ceremony, we headed out to the Courtyard and got the group shot, with everyone. Then the Couple us and the bridal party went on the wee trek down the road to the Mill’s garden and got some fab shots of the guys there. We then sent the bridal party on back up to the mill. We stayed on with Grace and Terry for a little while getting some intimate shots of them. On our way back up to the Mill though we cut through the garden and discovered some fantastic bales of hay! Grace was game so we got her sat up on them! We then headed back on into the courtyard.

Soon enough it was time for everyone to head into dinner. Grace and Terry kept everything casual with only one speech, from the Bestman John. Followed by dinner. 

following dinner, the couple had their first dance and as the party started it was time for us to head off home.
