This was an interesting wedding as I went to Down high school with Chris in Downpatrick many years ago now! I hadn’t seen Chris in years so it was great to see him again and meet his new wife Lauren. I went to Lauren’s house first and got some photos of her and her bridesmaids getting ready before heading down the road a little to Chris’ house to get some shots of the men finishing getting ready. They had the ceremony in Granshaw presbyterian church which is close to Ballygowan. The ceremony was lovely and after we all headed to Orange Tree house in Greyabbey for the reception and dinner.
This was the first time I’d been to Orange Tree house and it really is a fantastic venue for a wedding. It’s not too big or too small and right on the edge of Strangford lough looking back across to Scrabo in Newtownards. The views are incredible and the old buildings have been restored really beautifully. It was a great wedding and great fun to photograph such a brilliant couple!
