Mac and Kevin approached me to be their wedding photographer earlier this year. it was a two day event with their Roman Catholic wedding at Our Lady of Lourdes in Klang, followed by lunch and their tea ceremony. It turned out to be one of the most fun tea ceremonies to date, possibly because lunch was so much fun.
A few weeks later we were down at Cyberview Lodge to cover the official wedding banquet dinner. As you can see it was a lot of fun!
Jasmine and Francis celebrated their wedding in style with an out-door ceremony at Cyberview Lodge. The wedding ceremony included the release of some fairly “reluctant-to-fly” doves, and, as Francis was formerly of the Alley Cats, the evening was filled with wine, women and songs from many of the guests.
Andrew and Joanna contacted me to come over to Northern Ireland to be their wedding photographer. We had shot for some of their friends down here in Malaysia, where they met us the first time,Â and they loved our work so much (or maybe it was our comparatively cheap prices) that they were very keen for us to pop on over to Ireland. We stayed in a fantastic place in central Belfast called Benedicts Hotel. If you are headed to Belfast IÂ thoroughly recommend the place. Awesome cooked Irish breakfast every morning and the place is a party house every night with the pub usually packed and most Irish love to share a pint and have a chat. Sunday lunch features a traditional Irish band singing all the favourites. You can also hire aÂ car from fairly close by so you can go for a jaunt up the Antrim coast. Well worth it. I WILL be back.
The wedding was held outside Belfast in a small town called Bangor. Bangor had been on my list of places to visit since I was a kid thanks to a rollicking ditty by a group called “Fiddlers Dram”. The Clandeboye Lodge is a nice venue for weddings and has been set up to cater specifically for them. There is an upstairs area for ceremonies and another location for the reception/wedding breakfast. Both families were so much fun and we had a ball covering the day. Big thanks for a memorable time!
Final note: I LOVE Ireland. The Irish are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. If you are having a wedding in Ireland, do drop me a line.
