Glamorous Winter Wedding at Galgorm Resort & Spa: Aine & Paul

Aine and Paul had their Glamorous winter wedding at Galgorm resort and spa just after Christmas. and although it was pretty cold we got a really lovely day for it.  

We started the Day with Aine and her girls at her mum and dads home,  it was lovely to be out just after Christmas to see all the Christmas trees and lights still up.  we got some great shots of all the details, the Dresses the Shoes the jewelry and all the little details.  Aine had made a gift box up for each of her bridesmaids too. What a lovely idea! We got some great shots of the girls having their hair and makeup done buy the guys from Olivia Muldoon. Before we braved the outside and got these great shots of the flowers from Deirdre Brannigan.  Soon enough though it was time for the girls to go and get their dresses on and for us to head off to the Galgorm to meet up with Paul and all his lads.

We arrived at Galgorm and headed down to the Phantom house were the ceremony was going to be held.  We met up with Paul and his lads there and got some great shots of them before their guests started to arrive.  It was great to catch up with Mark and his wife Laura, Mark is Paul’s best man and brother who’s wedding to Laura we had the privilege of shooting a couple of years ago you can see it here if you would like, it was a very different day in the summer time at Larchfield estate.  Soon enough the guests started to arrive and it was time to get into the warm of the Phantom house for a while while we waited for the girls to arrive. 

Once the girls arrived it was time to get the show on the road as they would say.  Aine and the girls all looked absolutely stunning. There was enough time to get a couple of shots with them outside before it was inside and the ceremony began. 

Following the Ceremony we got some group shots with the bridal party around the Great hall before they headed in to warm up and we took Aine and Paul down to the river for a couple of shots.  As it was so late in the year we didn’t spend very long outside both as the light was beginning to fad and it was sooooo flipping cold! in the little time we spent out with the guys though we got these absolutely cracker shots of them on the walk down and back and at the river itself. Then it was back up to the renaissance suite and inside for a cuppa and a warm up. 

While the guys were warming up we took the time to get all the little details of the room including these shots of their amazing sequined cake from Gemma’s Cakes.  isn’t it so elegant!! Soon enough it was time for everyone to head into Dinner and for the speeches to begin.  The speeches were great really funny and heart felt. 

On a side note its so nice to see couples using our engagement photos at there wedding 🙂 and we had a fab day with these guys in Hillsborough park. you can check out the rest of their shoot here

Following dinner the dancing began lead by the couple, and with The Allstars providing the music, everyone was set for a fab night ahead as we headed off home.
