I love the traits of an Irish wedding and a fine example of this was at Breige Halferty’s house the morning of her big day. The family gathered at the ‘family home’ and everyone tucked in to a large breakfast spread where there was enough food to feed the 5,000. Scones, jam, cream, croissants, Ulster fry ups, you name it, you got it… And there was always a cup of tea on the go and placed in your hand whether you wanted it or not. Irish women don’t like to sit still especially on such a big occasion, and one way to keep idle hands busy is to make tea. It’s their equivalent of talking about the weather to break long silences. And even though I didn’t know Breige or the family, I was definitely made to feel part of the gang that day, so I too had a constant supply of scones and tea in between taking shots of the morning’s preparations.
It was a real family affair and a great deal of family and friends who came to wish them well, some making an extra effort as they came from afar which only adds to the sentiment of any special occasion. And I remember very vividly from that day just how effortlessly beautiful and relaxed Breige was and how Gerard absolutely beamed with pride when she was by his side.
The children on the wedding were full of personality giving me ample photography opportunities and in the evening Claire never stopped entertaining or singing, and Breige’s dad who took ‘dad dancing’ to a whole new level. It really was a gem of a day.
Breige and Gerard, I had a fantastic day with you both, thanks so much for having me and may I wish you all the happiness in the world.
