The happiest of wedding days – Louise and Joe

Louise and Joe met a few years ago. They fell in love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together. It was a match made in heaven as they truly are a couple in love. Living in Dumbarton they wanted to get married near home, and as they visit St Peter’s in Bellsmyre, that is where they wanted to get married. Unfortunately the weather wasnt too kind to us on this day, but that didnt stop the smiles from the guests, and especially from Louise and Joe.

Joe and all his groomsmen wore light grey jackets and kilts with light and dark grey and looked superb in their matching outfits. Joe was a nervous man while he waited for Louise to make her entrance – and make an entrance she did. Preceeded by all her bridesmaids and flower girls, she swept into the church wearing an ivory dress that covered in lace and a diamante waistline – plus the biggest beaming smile. She looked amazing.  Fr McGinley officiated the service, and with a solist and two readings, it was a perfect wedding.

The reception was in the gardens of St Patrick’s in Dumarton, where they have a wonderfully pleasant and large hall – and more than enough room for the 150 guests. With a brief interlude from the rain we managed to get some pictures in the gardens before their cake cutting and their wedding breakfast.

The evening started with Louise and Joe having their first dance, and then Louise danced with her Dad while Joe danced with Louises Mum, Mary – and then to the sound of  Gerry Cinnamon’s – You’re a Belter – the whole room erupted into a riot of colour and dancing with more or less every guest vying for space on the dance floor.  When I left the party had only just started and knowing Louise and Joe’s family and friends, I am sure that the partying went on throughout the whole evening. 

I couldn’t with to photograph a nicer couple, and Louise and Joe are a wonderful couple. I wish them well for the next stage of their lives and was truly honoured to be their photographer.
