Classic Relaxed, Carriage Rooms at Montalto Wedding: Emma & Neil

Emma and Neil had their Classic Elegant Carriage Rooms at Montalto Wedding back in August. We had a fab day with them there,  its such a lovely spot its fastly becoming one of our favorites. 

We started the Day with Emma and her lovely ladies at her and Neil’s home in Belfast, getting all the little details of the dress’s the shoes and jewelry.  We made a start with Emma’s fab Suzanne Neville Dress we got these stunning shots of it in her hall way.  Before moving on to the Bridesmaids dresses.  When we were all done with the stunning frocks we nipped down stairs with all the shoes to make the most of all the period features that were around the house. 

Soon enough though it was time for us to head off, to St Patrick’s Church in the city and meet up with the boys. We met up with Neil and Issac out side the chapel before getting some quick shots around the entrance hall.  Soon enough the girls arrived and we got some great shots of them in the street before with there elegant Calla Lilly bouquet from Tortraits Floral Design.

The Service was performed by Father Raymond McCullagh. Following the ceremony we went back into the Chapel and got some great shots of the couple at the alter and also some of the family shots here at the church before we all headed off to the Carriage rooms.

When we arrived, We took Emma off internally and got some great shots of her alone while Neil mingled with the guests. After a little while with the guests we grabbed Neil and took the couple out in to the gardens. We got some great shots of them before the heavens opened and we made a quick dash inside. The day was very relaxed so the couple mingled with their guests until the rain blew over and we headed back out to the stable yard and on down to the lake.  Emma and Neil were super relaxed and easy to work with even when Neil initially didn’t really want to have his photo taken. 

We got back up to the main rooms just in time to catch this lovely rainbow, before we headed in for Speeches and dinner.  Emma and Neil had decided to speeches thought dinner, which was really lovely making a real change from the usual format of all the speeches before dinner.  After Dinner we nipped back out with the couple and got these final great evening shots at the green house before we headed home Leaving them to party the night away.
