Relaxed Summer Wedding at Darver Castle: Paula & Daryl

Paula and Daryl had their relaxed summer Wedding at Darver Castle back in August. We started the day unusually with Daryl at his and Paula’s home getting some great shots of him and his lads getting ready. WE got some great shots of them getting all suited and booted before it was time to head to Paula’s parents house to meet up with the girls. 

When we arrived at Paula’s parents it was all go in the front room with Hair and Make-up in full swing. rather than get ourselves in the way here we headed up stairs and got on with capturing all the details of the dresses, shoes and flowers before nipping into the front room briefly to get a couple of shots with the girls. 

We met back up with Daryl and the lads at St. Patrick´s Church, in Lisburn and got some quick shots here with the boys before the guests all started to arrive.  soon enough though the girls were spotted and it was time for everyone to head on inside. 

The Ceremony was lovely it was performed by Fr Eamon Magorrian and it was a really lovely service inducing readings picked by the couple.  Following the service we got some quick shots with the bridal party at the church as it looked like the weather might break so didn’t want to risk driving all the way to Darver only for it to be pouring down when we arrived and not get any shots with the guys outside. 

Once we arrived at Darver though the rain had blown over, but it did lash down on the motor way on the way down. but as it had stopped we were able to get out and around the grounds with the Couple for their shots and even did the family photos outside. Soon enough though it was time for Dinner and speeches. 

Daryl and Paula took the decision to speak together which i thought was a really nice touch,  they kept the speeches short and everyone enjoyed them. Following dinner we managed to persuade the guys to come across to a wheat field just outside Darver and we got these stunning evening shots with them before we headed back in for the Dancing.
