Throwback to 2018 The Wedding of Peter & Lorna

Peter & Lorna got married on 14th August 2018 at Bishop’s Gate Hotel in Derry, the wedding between Peter & Lorna took place.  I was there for a little while just to get some photos of the newly married couple. At Gerard Gormley Photography, I like to take photos in a fun, natural and classic way.  The guests were all gathered at the hotel when I arrived.  I met Peter and Lorna and we decided just to do some images inside in the beautiful library area of the hotel.  The light was almost perfect for us and as you can see below, we got some lovely images.  Many thanks to Peter & Lorna for allowing me to enjoy their day, if only for a little while.  I wish you both many happy years together.  Please feel free to contact me if I can help with any photography needs.  You can get me here or on Facebook at Gerard Gormley Photography.

A little about me.

I’ve spent years helping people to find the perfect sole. In my shoe shop in the heart of Derry and now through my passion for photography
I get to photograph people with their soulmates! My daughter Bronagh and parents have always been and always will be a big part of my life. We have shared so many moments and enjoy looking at older photos and laughing together. Moments and the moments between moments during a wedding or a portrait session hold so much emotion. I love to capture images in a fun, natural and classic way. I’ve been passionate about photography for years, from the darkroom to my digital camera today, and storytelling is at the heart of what I do. I’m Gerard and I look forward to telling your story.

Bride on the Wedding Morning

Bride on the Wedding Morning – here are a few images from getting ready to meeting the man she loves. This is Martina and Justin’s wedding. The morning of a wedding can be chaos but it is so much fun. This is obviously the bride’s house and will be very different to the groom’s house. Here you have hair and make up along with so much stuff going on. The main focus is the bride but if kids are involved things can get tricky lol. These images are when everyone is ready and starting to get ready for the trip to the Church.

Ciara and Nathan

Ciara and Nathan had their photo shoot at the Pollan Beach near Ballyliffin. This really is a fabulous location in Donegal. Many bridal parties arrive here for photos so we were lucky with the weather. Ciara and Nathan were great fun to work with and they all just got stuck in and had a fun day. Rain had fallen earlier in the day and we got a lovely photo of the couple under the rainbow. Without the rain you will not get that shot.

Christina’s Wedding Prep

Christina’s Wedding Prep. This is just a quick look at Christina’s Wedding Prep on the morning of her wedding with Noel. It really was such a fun morning. As a wedding photographer, I find it a privilege to be asked to document the day. I arrived around 930am to Christina’s  parents house where she was getting ready. It was organised and chaotic all at the same time. It was a fun time for them all. When her dad came in to see the dress she did a little emotional which is to be expected. The raw emotion was palpable. The hair and make up were all done in the house which worked well for Christina. There is of course the usual bottle of bubbly to be opened.

Gillian and Dee Wedding Day

Gillian and Dee Wedding Day

Gillian and Dee Wedding Day – where do i start? It was a fun filled day from start to finish. Gillian was just gorgeous and Dee was looking well also. Kids always make photos more fun so their two children were just brilliant to have on board. One was a little more sticky which proved great for photos because Dee and Gillian wanted candid images. From the church, we went to Bishops Gate Hotel in the town. This was great as it as not too far away. On arriving there, guests were there before us so plenty of photos immediately. Here are some black and white images from the day.

Pre Wedding Shoot with Christina & Noel

Pre Wedding Shoot with Christina & Noel. I met up with Christina & Noel yesterday for a pre wedding photo shoot. It is always good to try and get couples used to the idea of being in front of a camera. Noel told me that he had never did this before, but, after yesterday I think he was having a laugh. He loved it lol. Christina was just brilliant, and now really looking forward to their wedding this month. We went to Lisnagra Woods near the village of Muff in County Donegal.  The weather was a little off so we knew we would be under the trees for a little protection.

The woods at Lisnagra are west of Muff and can be reached by turning right at Harkins on the way to Derry. They featured recently on RTE and BBC but are not generally known as a tourist attraction. Some visitors have seen squirrels emerge from the wood, and they are quite numerous. A walk through the woods on a warm day is something to remember. Muff is a village in County Donegal, Ireland. It is near the mouth of the River Foyle and sits at the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The village of Culmore and the city of Derry are to the south. We chose this location also for the pre wedding shoot as it is very close to where we all live in Derry. Many thanks for looking and please feel free to like and share this post – thank you again Gerard Gormley Photography, Derry.
