The bride and groom listen to the words of their celebrant.
Heather and Casey came over to Northern Ireland from the United States to get married within the ruins of Dunluce Castle, an ancient venue surrounded by stunning coastal scenery. Their immediate family traveled with them, but there were no other guests apart from their celebrant, a videographer, and myself as the still photographer. The weather was exceptionally good, with unbroken blue skies for most of the afternoon, which is not typical for the area. The ceremony lasted for about half an hour, and once the family had congratulated Heather and Casey and spent some time exploring the castle grounds, Heather and Casey headed off to explore the surrounding area, including the nearby Dark Hedges and Kinbane Head, where I had planned some portraits.
