When I received the e-mail from Shane’s mother looking to know if I could photograph Shane’s wedding as a western themed event I really was both excited and nervously apprehensive!! Could I capture the spirit of the day? If I am to get formal shots are they to be “formal” or western staged poses and themed? My head was active with all sorts of possibilities, questions and inquisitive curiosity.
As the guests started to arrive at the Palace Stables in Armagh where the ceremony was to be held, there were sheriff’s badges, cowboy hats, replica guns, poncho’s and various items of western clothing as they sought to enter into the excitement and fun of Jemma and Shane’s wonderful family wedding.
As the building filled for the wedding ceremony, it was clearly evident that Jemma and Shane were special to all present as the guests chattered and smiled with anticipation of their wonderful start in life as a married family.
From the ceremony through the photographs and on to the family home for the meal and entertainment, an atmosphere of fun and love prevailed.
Below are some photos from their big day
