Foyle Park Wedding.
Sayijan & Vidya Foyle Park wedding was a beautiful day. Both the bride and groom had stayed at the venue the night before their wedding.

I arrived a little early to find the ceremony room had already been decorated so I took a few photographs before joining the bride and her bridesmaids as they prepared for the dig day.
Vidya’s dress was beautiful and the bride looked stunning in it. Sayijan had sent his wife to be a lovely note with a single red rose. As the couple had both stayed at Foyle Park I was able to join the groom and his groomsmen to get some extra photographs as they were getting ready for the wedding day. Sayijan looked smart and handsome as his father, uncle and best man helped him to get ready for the day. After briefly rejoining the bride it was time to get myself ready for the wedding ceremony downstairs.

While waiting for the ceremony to start I took some candid photographs of the guests and the groom. The bride was led down the stairs into the reception room by her father. I had photographed the couples Hindu wedding earlier in the year and this was more of a christian blessing. Once the formalities had taken place and the newlyweds had been announced to the guests’ everybody stood and showered the couple in confetti as they made their exit.
The weather had turned and it was now aiming outside so we took the opportunity to photograph the formal group shots in the venue.
By the time we were done the shower had passed so we were able to take advantage of the venue and its beautiful grounds for some couples photographs. The bridesmaids and groomsmen quickly joined us.
The couple took a few minutes to freshen up before the wedding breakfast and I took this opportunity to photograph the reception room.

The newlyweds were announced in and went straight into cutting the cake, Another good photo opportunity. I left the wedding guests to enjoy the wedding breakfast and have the meal they had provided for me. This was a good opportunity to take a beak and gather myself ready for the speeches.
The wedding speeches.
There were a few wedding speeches. A few of the couples friends wanted to take to the floor and wish this lovely couple all the best. There were some very touching and moving comments from the speakers and many laughs too.
Sayijan had many sweet things to say about his bride and had a few of the guest in tears by the end.
After the wedding speeches, the couple took to the dance floor for their first dance. We had the opportunity to get them outside once more for a few more posed photographs. I didn’t keep them long so they could get back to their guests and enjoy their beautiful wedding day at Foyle Park.
A lovely wedding and one along with their Hindu wedding I had been looking forward to for quite some time. I met the couple a few years ago when I was photographing an event that was their first date together. I am proud to say I took the first picture of the couple together. Being there to photograph their weddings was a real honour and wrapped things up nicely for me.
