Wedding of Lauren & Daryl at Bellingham Castle Co. Louth Ireland


Lauren & Daryl exchanged their wedding vows at St Oliver Plunkett Church Co. Louth shared by family and friends and it was a beautiful ceremony followed by the most beautiful reception in the jewel of Irelands crown Bellingham Castle. I have photographed many wedding over the past 11 years but there are few venues that make me feel the way Bellingham Castle does. It feels to me like home is the only way I can describe it and I know that is how all the bride and grooms feel and this is credit to the amazing staff there on their professionalism and needless to say the venue itself is absolutely incredible. Lauren and her bridesmaids had their bridal preparations at Bellingham Estate which is still the most perfect place I have ever shot bridal preparations, if you are planning your wedding at Bellingham Castle and have the option to book Bellingham Estate for your morning preparations don’t think twice BOOK IT!


Hair was styled by the amazing Olivia Muldoon and bridal makeup by Fiona Murphy and bridal gown was custom made for Lauren by REUDI and all the memories were captured on film by the coolest cat around Shane from The Garage Project. Despite this wedding being the first time I ever met Shane I will remember until I die the look on his face when the whole wedding shared the dance floor with the bride & Groom to sing at the top of their lungs along to “can’t take my eyes off you” it was a moment of pure euphoria that goes down in history as one of the best nights of my life !

Lauren & Daryl’s families are as they say in Belfast “the salt of the earth” and they looked after me like one of their own, if there was ever a family I wanted to be part of this is it.
