Rainy Summer Leighinmohr House Hotel Wedding: Naomi & Ryan

Naomi and Ryan got married on the August Bank Holiday at Leighinmohr House just outside Ballymena. We started the say on the very top floor of the hotel with Naomi and her Bridesmaids all getting their hair and make up expertly done but the Guys from Gemini. One of those bridesmaids was a familiar face to us as we had photographed Joanna, Naomi’s sisters wedding some 5 years ago now at the Tullyglass Hotel. We got some great shots of Naomi’s stunning Blush colour dress out in the lobby as the room with the help of Johnny, Joanna’s husband who lent a rather tall hand putting the dress up for us as both Me and Hannah as both challenged a bit in the hight department. We spent some time with the girls getting all the detail shots before it was time for us to head off to the Church to meet up Ryan and his lads.

We made it to the crescent Church and got the boys out onto the street as the weather was still holding. We got some great shots of the lads and of the arriving guests. Soon enough though Naomi and the ladies were pulling up and it was time to get the service underway. The Service was performed by Samuel Maze Ryan’s grandfather which was a real personal touch 🙂 Following the service we got some of the family shots and these great shots of the couple outside the church before moving inside as the rain had started.

Following the Church we headed up to Queens University with the Bridal party and got some great shots outside there. The whole team were troopers even little Imogen as the rain had started in earnest by this point and everyone was getting soaked. The Bridal party headed off back to the Church for tea and cake while we kept the couple for a few more shots around the grounds at Queens. When we were done there the couple headed off to make a quick visit to Ryan’s Grandmother who was recently taken ill and unable to attend the service. While we headed off along the motorway to Randalstown.

There was one more stop off at the Second Randalstown Presbyterian church for Naomi & Ryan to visit at Naomi’s mum’s grave. We got a few very discrete shots of this intimate moment both with Naomi and Ryan and then with Joanna, Johnny and Little Imogen too before we jumped back in the cars and were off to Leighinmohr House.

Once we arrived we got a quick scout out of the function room before heading out for a group shot of everyone. Then it was time for Speeches.

Following the speeches the room was rest ready for the evening’s entertainment provided by Rising Sour The ceili band. We got the first few dances of the couple and the bridal party before it was time for the dancing to start and for us to head off home.
