Love at First Sight
Adan & Simone met by complete chance. Adam was an American in Belfast working as a trad musician. Simone was taking a break from work and travelling on her own from Austria. They both ended up staying in Vagabonds hostel in Belfast. here they met after a night out and ended up chatting into the small hours. Fast forward a few months and the pair decided to return to where they first met to tie the knot. Literally tie the knot. It’s an Austrian tradition to tie the bow on your bride’s dress after the ceremony.
Simone’s stunning traditional Austrian dress was embellished with gorgeous detail and Adam looked incredibly dapper. I don’t shoot many elopements so this was a rare pleasure for me. Roping my assistant in so we could be witnesses as well as photographers (you need 2 witnesses to legally marry) we spent the afternoon walking around Belfast getting photos in the places the two had discovered on their first trip.
