Whoop! Back to back Segrave House! I should take up residency there :) This time I got to spend an amazing day with Megan and Eoin, all of it on the grounds of Segrave House. I think we just about covered all of it too… the coverted barn accomodation, the marquee, the gardens, the outdoor ceremony… Eoin even stayed in a cute cottage across the road, as if this wedding needed a quaint Irish cottage thrown into the mix! Speaking of the outdoor ceremony btw, Megan’s bridesmaids featured not one but two beautiful voices providing the music. Particular shout out to the moment where I thought I was going slightly mad, swearing I was hearing a selection of Ruby’s favourite Disney princess hits in my head… until I realised that is exactly what I was hearing and it was stunning.
As much as a venue like Segrave brings to the party, and it brings a lot, it’s always about the people. The bride, the groom, the moms and dads, the grandparents, the quirky aunt, the friends. Every now and then though, you hit on something a bit special, and I’m not talking about Megan and Eoin here (you guys do rock though), it’s Megan and her Dad. From the moment he walked in to see her in her dress for the first time, his eyes were locked on her for the day. Pride, joy, probably a small sense of letting go, Wijaopiusadgj p9wtg… sorry some water spilled on my keyboard there… why is my screen all blurry. During the shoot, I’m just ‘go go go’, but sitting down and going over the day during the edit… yeah, I’m gonna be a mess if/when Ruby gets married.
Megan and Eoin too though. What can I say. I guess they’re alright :p A sincere, heartfelt couple if ever there was one. They filled their day with little touches, notes, gifts, moments with each other and family. They also happened to be a dream to shoot. Definitely one of those couples where you just want 5 more minutes with them, every 5 minutes.
If you’ve read this far, check out this wedding below. I love everything about it, I hope Megan and Eoin will too. Thanks guys for having me as your photographer and getting me up to Segrave Barns again :)
