haley + dave | Belfast Ireland countryside wedding

Haley and I have now known each other over 20 years which is pretty crazy to think. We introduce each other as “kind of cousins” and although not through blood, we are family. Haley and I always got along so well and when I saw that she was engaged, I couldn’t hold back from messaging her and saying “um, I will come to Ireland… just so you know”. Well, shortly after sending that message, contract was signed and my plane ticket was booked. I was going to Ireland to photograph Haley and Dave’s wedding and I was so darn excited about it.

Now this wasn’t my first wedding in Ireland, in 2018 I photographed Eva and Alan’s wedding at Lough Rynn Castle, only a few hours away from Belfast.

H + D planned a beautiful, laid back day at the Hilton Templepatrick Belfast. With the morning being on and off rain (It is Ireland you know!), everyone was on the edge of their seat as of course, the dream was an outside ceremony surrounded by the luscious greenery. Well, they got just that; A perfect garden ceremony, an outdoor warm + sunny cocktail hour, a gorgeous pink sunset and then one of the best parties I have seen in a long time.

Haley + Dave, thank you SO much for having me. Can’t wait to see you guys again in Belfast :)
