Emma & Gareth's wedding in the beautiful county of Sligo was amazing! September 2020 saw these two legends show nerves of steel and determination as they went ahead and got married surrounded by their close family & friends.
Another true testament to Emma & Gareth's character was how they handled the extra curve ball thrown in by mother nature on the day of their wedding! We had a plan to take in the stunning surroundings of Rosses Point for their outdoor portraits but a storm accompanied by a yellow weather warning halted that plan. So what did we do? We made magic happen using the calm indoor surroundings of the wedding venue with a massive dollop of their love for each other. That's all we need! It's all about the couple, their connection with each other because nothing else matters. These two are awesome and their photos are full of joy!
Emma and the ladies were in fine tune when I arrived with them on the morning. There was champagne,there was laughter and come to think of it I think Emma even had a strong brandy in her hand whilst the hair stylist worked her magic. Have a peak at a selection of their wedding photos below, all the little moments and emotions on a truly lovely day.
I caught up with the groom Gareth and his groomsmen at the chapel in Rathcormack. They were in top form as they greeted both families as they arrived for the wedding ceremony on what was a lovely, dry morning.
Emma wore a stunning Justin Alexander dress from Brummel & Co in Athlone The couple held their reception at the beautiful Diamond Coast Hotel in County Sligo. Whilst it would have been great to have taken their portraits outdoors along the Atlantic coast, sadly it sometimes rains in Ireland! *haha* However I tell all couples, a good backdrop only enhances a photo but the most important element of the wedding photos is your connection with eachother. Real love, real joy and authenticity is all that matters. Dramatic mountains and sun-soaked beaches can't create that feeling. These two have bucket loads of authentic love so my job was easy! Two total beauties.
Best wishes to Emma & Gareth for many years of happiness and love. Enjoy the images!
