Clandeboye Lodge Hotel Wedding | Rachel & Daniel


As a wedding photographer in Northern Ireland, I have the privilege of capturing weddings in some of the most amazing venues throughout the country. Recently, I photographed Rachel and Daniel's wedding at the Clandeboye Lodge Hotel on a sunny winter's day leading up to Christmas. The lighting was incredibly beautiful, especially for a winter's day.

The day started with photographing Rachel getting ready on-site. It was a relaxed morning, and everyone was excited for the day ahead. Rachel prepared for the day with her two daughters, a memory that they will undoubtedly cherish for the rest of their lives.

The ceremony was held in The Blackwood Suite, and it was breathtaking. The arched timber beams, gothic windows, and enchanting ambiance created a truly magical atmosphere. The couple exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends, and the ceremony was wonderfully delivered by Stewart Holden, a humanist celebrant who gained fame as a contestant on Mastermind.

As the day drew to a close, we were treated to a stunning sunset that provided the perfect backdrop for portraits of the couple. The lighting was absolutely gorgeous, and we took full advantage of the opportunity to capture some incredible shots in the stunning and immaculate gardens at Clandeboye Lodge.

The couple's first dance was made extra special with a surprise performance by famous country music singer Nathan Carter, which undoubtedly delighted them. The dance floor was lively and further enhanced with smoke machines and sparklers, creating a fantastic atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed documenting Rachel and Daniel's unforgettable wedding at the always-impressive Clandeboye Lodge Hotel, where the staff's professionalism is consistently admirable. This venue is truly outstanding and never fails to impress.
