Northern Irish Elopement Newforge House Wedding: Karen & Mark

Book your session online now

Karen and Mark booked us only a few weeks before their wedding,  They came out to meet us at the studio and we were instantly intrigued by their plans. They told us that there were just slipping away to New Forge House for a couple of Days on their own and while they were there they would get married just the 2 of them.  They were having a real Northern Irish Elopement. They had engaged the local registrar to perform the ceremony and they had persuaded the Guys from New Forge to act as witnesses so it was all set.  We chatted a bit and between us came to an arrangement where we would come for 3 hours to get them getting ready before for the ceremony, to cover the ceremony itself and to get photos of them after around the grounds of the House.

So we started the day with both Karen and Mark up in their room which was a really fun time full of nerves and excitement. Although they were both much braver than Hannah and I as they were sure that their families wouldn’t be annoyed they missed all the fun.  We got some great shots of the couple up in their room before it was time to head down for the Ceremony.

The Ceremony was really lovely so intimate with just the couple the Registrar, the witnesses and us.  

following the Ceremony we headed outside, we honestly spent about 2 hours with the guys around the grounds of New Forge House getting all these fab images of the couple before it was time for us to hit the road and them to go get some dinner. 

Following their wedding we processed a handful of sneak peeks for them to show their families at their big reveal! Everything went well and they were right, nothing to be nervous about their families thought it was great. 🙂
