VICTORIA & TIM
Victoria is English and Tim is Irish and I couldn't have asked for a nicer couple. Tim had the biggest smile and Victoria was beaming all day. They live in England but decided to have the wedding in Ireland, in Arklow Bay hotel. Even tough it was late October, the sun was blazing and the sky was blue. Victoria arrived in the bridal suite after having her hair done in Arklow by Browns Hairdressing and Jess got started on the makeup which was flawless. It was a fun morning with Victoria, her Mum and her four bridesmaids, including her sister and her adorable little niece and emotions were high, especially when Victoria read the card Tim had written for her. I also went over to Tim who was getting ready with his groomsmen on a different floor. The excitement was palpable and a glass of whiskey went down a treat! Victoria looked stunning in her Riki Dalal dress. and the flowers by Roses Florist were gorgeous. The ceremony room was beautifully set up and the wide bay window provided excellent lighting to capture all the keys moments and take lots of portraits. After exchanging the vows, they had a sand mixing ceremony which was lovely. It was a beautiful ceremony full of emotions, smiles and a few tears as well. Later we stepped outside in the sunshine and after all the group shots, the three of us went for a walk on the grounds, through the woods and by the pier... so many photos opportunities! It was fairly mild and the late afternoon light was gorgeous. The speeches were great, Tim's Dad was especially entertaining and I loved capturing the reactions of the guests and the bridal party. After the first dance, the guests were treated to some Irish dancing. Tim and one of his brothers were trying to outdo each other and it was hilarious! Working alongside me was talented videographer Doug and the band Jaker kept the dance floor busy. The light up letters by Lovinletters were a great addition to the décor. Thank you so much Victoria and Tim for choosing me to capture your big day!
