Mark & Maelíosa’s North South wedding
North and South
The joy of living in Northern Ireland is ya can easily nip across the border and back again. It’s like a wee trip where nothing changes except the money and the speed limit is in km. That did not stop my hubby’s grandad from driving back from Dublin at 120mph once though as he didn’t realise!! When Mark and Maelíosa planned their wedding they decided to make the most of the two countries opportunity. They married in the stunning Newry Cathedral where Mark’s family were from, then headed to the Ballymascanlon not far down the road and not far from Maeliosa’s family home in Ravensdale.
Newry Cathedral is a stunning venue. Made more personal by the fact Maelíosa’s uncle came out of retirement to preside over her ceremony. Having never shot in the cathedral before I was well excited and it did not dissapoint. We then headed to the Ballymascanlon to make the most of their gorgeous grounds and gardens for some fun portraits before dinner. Family photos were super important to Mark and Maelíosa so we took a bit of time on those to make sure everyone was in for a shot. It’s such a good idea to take time out to get these as it’s rare that everyone is all together at once. Definitely don’t overlook it when planing your photos.
More brides making speeches that make people cry please. Maelíosa’s speech left not a dry eye in the house. But with that in mind I’ll stop talking now before I make ya cry and show you some photos…
