Lisa & Lee’s Clandeboye wedding (with gin themed tables!!!)

Lisa & Lee love gin as much as I do – so much so they named all their tables at their Clandeboye Lodge wedding after their favourite tipple which I instantly fell in love with. Not only is it a great drink but there are so many pretty bottles it worked brilliantly! Their day in September last year was full of laughs from start to finish (including one at my own expense when I very nearly knocked over a candle stick during the ceremony but thankfully managed to catch it in time) and lovely moments like getting both their dads to light candles during the ceremony and the best man having a wee cry during his speech. We got the kind of autumn day wedding photographers would pay money for if they could (unfortunately ya can’t book the sun I’ve tried) and were able to make the most of it and get some gorgeous photos. They’re a pretty shy couple as they told me before hand so I shot a lot with a longer lens to ease them in, basically going for a walk and me following along at a little bit of a distance trying not to make them nervous. When I’m shooting portraits I tend to get people to head to where the light is perfect then go from there – I much prefer candid relaxed shots to overly posed grinning at the camera ones.

Lisa sadly lost her brother Tom many years ago in an accident and wore a locket with his photo in it to make him a part of the day which I thought was a genuinely lovely touch – she got her mum a matching one too. That and Lee and his new wife dancing with their gran after their first dane were my fave moments of the day – near had a wee cry behind the camera *shush no theres something in your eye* ahem…
