I first met Emily and Nick last year when they were guests at another wedding I had shot. I went to see them and they explained what they were going to do, I was excited as I knew it was going to be very different to most weddings I shoot. They were getting married mid week at the registry office but the main event was a pagan ceremony by a lake and then a mini festival wedding party.
First stop was the girls, they were getting ready at the family home, make up and hair to start with but then close friends were turning up to start the celebrations.
The weather was not the best forecast I had seen, looking out the windows as it was raining heavily and more heavy showers in the morning over the venue was not ideal as it was a field with tents, wellies would be required today.
This did not dampen any spirits at all, to be fair I don't think anyone cared. It would be what it would be and nothing could be changed.
The plan was to do a dress reveal from behind a curtain, as it was drawn I don't think I have seen so many shocked faces at a wedding. There was shouts of and joy and plenty of tears, No one was expecting the dress Emily had chosen.
I found the boys and grabbed a couple of shots with them before they made there way to the circle to await the bride.
Emily arrived and made her way to the circle where her and Nick took part in a lovely Pagan ceremony looked on by friends and family. A short while later it was congratulations all round and time to start the party.
After which the band started to play and got everyone bouncing to some cool Irish music.
