Elegant Summer Stormont Hotel Wedding: Kathryn & Nathan
Kathryn & Nathan had their elegant summer wedding at the Stormont Hotel in July. We started the Day with Kathryn and her girls getting ready at her mum and dads house in Belfast, We got a few shots of the girls getting their hear and make up done by the fab team from Gloss & co. downstairs before we nipped up to the front room to get all the details shots of the dresses, Shoes and and all the other bits. It was a really relaxed morning atmosphere and everyone was cheery and having fun. We got some great shots of the flowers from Cottage Crafts & flowers. before it was time for everyone to get ready to go.
We headed off soon after to meet up with Nathan and his lads at the Stormont Hotel. we arrived a little before the lads did so we took the opportunity to get into the ceremony room and get all these fab details that Kathryn and Nathan had put so much work into arranging. Soon enough Nathan arrived and we got some shots of him with his Mum and with the lads. Before the guests starred to arrive.
Soon Enough the girls arrived expertly driven by the guys from David Andrews cars. we got some quick shots with Mum, dad and the bridesmaids before it was time to head in for the Ceremony. The Ceremony was lovely performed by the local registrar. in front of their family and friends.
Following the Ceremony there was a champagne reception at the hotel, While their guests enjoyed a re glasses and some light refreshments we went across to the Stormont estate to get some shots with The couple and their bridal party. Stormont estate is popular with tourists to Belfast and just as we arrived we were passed by one of the many site seeing tour buses, which i think made their day as all the tourists were waving and cheering for Kathryn and Nathan. We got some quick shots with the Bridesmaids and the groomsmen along the drive before they headed back across to the hotel and we took the couple along into the parkland.
We got some great shots of the two of them, they are such a great couple so relaxed with one another. before it began to ran and we headed back across to the hotel.
We nipped into the reception room and got some quick detail shots of the room all turned around ready for dinner while Kathryn and Nathan mingled with their guests. Soon enough it was time for everyone to head on in for Speeches and dinner. The Speeches were funny and heartfelt and really set the mood of the day. Then while dinner was served we said our good byes and headed home.
