Robert and Ruth’s Gorgeous Canal Court Hotel Wedding in Newry
Ahh I just love this couple!
Ever since I first met them in the Killyhevlin Hotel Wedding Show back in February 2016, it was clear that they’re very much in love! They’re both really easy going too and relaxed, despite planning well ahead. It didn’t take long to come around at all and we got to celebrate Robert and Ruth’s Gorgeous Canal Court Hotel Wedding, Newry on the 27th May 2017.
There was a few firsts in this wedding for me: Newry is a new area for me which I’m delighted to say. Another, potentially alarming, first was where I arrive to photograph the brides preparation and I get there before the makeup artist has even arrived! They’re normally at the finishing touches stage with just an hour to go when I arrive but an incident at the petrol station somewhat delayed her arrival…eek! But alas, we all managed to keep calm with a chat and a cuppa, and I’m glad to say that Ruth was still looking as beautiful as ever and made her service on time! She was definitely a lot more chilled than Robert that’s for sure, as he looked rather anxious when I got to the ceremony, but he soon relaxed when he first caught sight of his stunning bride to be!
After a lovely service in the Newry Metropolitan Tabernacle we headed off, in the driving and pouring rain lol, for photos at Carlingford, County Louth. The rain didn’t ease off one single moment, but we found a semi dry spot underneath a cute little archway that leads onto one of the cobbled shopping streets for a few lovely photos.
The driving wind funnelling up through the street almost blew us back into the wedding cars so we headed back to Newry to their reception venue, the Canal Court Hotel, where thankfully, Ruth was granted a few days off from her usual chef’s role in the kitchen!
After getting the family rounded up for a few quick photos we headed into the lovely function room. Their speeches were brilliant! Filled with love, laughter and also a few touching moments which required the inevitable tissues to come out for a few. With a meal fit for a king following speeches it was then time to party to the night away!
A fabulous day, with an amazing couple that look perfect together and the gorgeous styling details to match (just check out those Jimmy Choo’s for example!!).
