Summery wedding at Finnebrogue Woods by Belfast Wedding Photographer Crazy Happy Love

Sarah & Garth’s Finnebrogue Woods Wedding

Welcome to the stunning Finnebrogue woods

As a Belfast wedding photographer I love the chance to photograph weddings at venues I’ve not been to before. Finnebrogue was one of these – I had admired it from afar and never been. Until Sarah and Garth got in touch with just six weeks to their wedding day! Yup this awesome pair pulled off the wedding of their dreams in just 6 weeks. So to anyone stressing about not having enough time – don’t worry you can do it!

Sunny Summer Vibes

Sarah and Garth had no reason to rush, but also no reason to wait! So they decided to go for it and planned a stunning summer wedding at Finnebrogue .With a bit of help from friends and family of course. Their gorgeous humanist ceremony by Helen McIlveen was absolutely wonderful as the sun shone down on them, though we did have some serious showers and the tipi was a life saver! After the ceremony We got a spin in the Finnebrogue landrover around the stunning grounds to take some portraits. We even met some cows. Then as the rain really came on we headed back for some absolutely hilarious speeches in the tipi. Sarah had planned and decorated it beautifully to give a really colourful summer vibe.  We even managed to grab some sunset portraits later on making this photographers dreams come true!

Sarahs stunning gown was just perfect for the setting and Garth and his groomsmen went with a nautical inspired look found in his love of sailing with yellow bowties (Sarahs favourite colour). The bouquets were explosions of colour made by Wild thing in Donaghadeee, just down from the couples home!

So even though I’m a Belfast based wedding photographer I am more than happy to travel! So far work has taken me as afar as France and as close to home as Titanic Quarter (4 minutes drive to be exact) so hit me up whatever your venue!

Here are some photos to make you crave some sunshine!!

Tying the knot in the sun by the lake

These guys planned an absolutely gorgeous day outside and for once the weather in Ireland played ball. Not fans of posing they asked for lots of candid photos and a small set of family pics. That’s a really great mix for when you want to keep everyone happy. Some family pics but also no spending ages getting photos. I’m a big fan of letting people enjoy their day with guests rather than look at me for hours.  Erin & David actually live in Montreal but David grew up in Finaghy, my old hood. They wanted to come back to have a Belfast wedding here with family and fell in love with Ballydugan.

David and Erin tied the knot quite literally with a hand fasting ceremony at the lake at the gorgeous Ballydugan mill. They used a piece of family tartan to carry out the traditional Irish ceremony.  Set against a backdrop of sun reflecting on the lake it really was beautiful. A really nice alternative to wedding rings if you are looking for something different for your ceremony.
