Elegant Summer Christ the Redeemer Church and The Carriage rooms at Montalto Wedding : Orla & Joe

Orla and Joe Married at the Christ the Redeemer Church and then held their reception at the Carriage rooms at Montalto back in June during our lovely summer heatwave. 

We started the day with Orla and her team at her parent’s house in Dunmurry, we got some great shots of the girls getting their hair and makeup expertly done by the guys from Peter Mark and by Colleen Sessay.  we got some great shots of all the little details too before it was time to head to the Church and meet up with Joe and his lads. 

We met up with the lads and they were tremendous sports keeping their jackets on for the photos been as it was one of the hottest days of the year, poor Joe too was in a wool suit! we took them to the back of the Chapel and kept them in the shade as much possible before it was time to head into the Chapel itself. 

Once the Ladies arrived expertly driven by the Logy Bear Camper van team, the service began.  It was a lovely service, performed by Fr John Forsythe.  

Following the Service, we headed on to the Carriage rooms where we got some great shots down in the conservatory with the couple followed by some around the interior of the venue.  Soon enough though it was time for dinner and everyone took their seats for the speeches. Everyone’s hearts were melted by wee Matt and his poem. 

Following dinner when it had got a little cooler out and the light was just perfect we took the guys down to to the lake and got these amazing shots of them before heading back up for the dancing.  

We love shooting weddings! Why not check out some of our other weddings here on the blog, or in the gallery,  or why not get in touch and pop out to our studio and see our lovely handmade albums in person over a cuppa.
