In September I photographed a really beautiful Mount Stewart wedding for Catherine and Dermot. When Catherine told me of her plans to have the wedding ceremony in Mount Stewart itself I knew it would be visually very exciting for me as a photographer. When shooting ‘storytelling’ wedding photography, where you don’t stop the action but, rather, capture it live as it’s happening, it’s always really cool when you have an amazing backdrop like Mount Stewart for the story to unfold. The drinks reception took place outside in the sunken garden with evening celebrations happening in the marquee just to the front of the house. My thanks go to the couple and their families and friends for a lovely welcome, their confidence and trust. As ever these were my personal favourite images from the day.
