So... it seems Áine and Mark's party went on until 6am. I keeled over at 1am - God only knows what I missed!

Theirs is a classic love story too. Sort of. An Irish one anyway... In their words, 'Mark fell in love with Áine aged 12. Through sheer determination and an intensive exercise and personality improvement regime, 7 years later she was his.'!

In short, this was an all round cracking wedding. Áine and Mark had exactly the kind of day they wanted - simple, relaxed, fun, torrential rain taken in stride.

As for the tunes.. We stole the first dance song again - 'Breathless, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.' We'd been listening to Mark's bandIdles, on a loop in the run up to their day - bloody brilliant - you need to check them out. A special shout out also to the 45s, our most favourite band that we've heard play a wedding in a long time.

Not a dry eye in the house. And barely a minute passing without huge belly laughs either.

Christabel and Roy's wedding was about the most authentic, heartfelt day you could imagine. Fist-pumping couple, sword-fighting kids, impromptu karaoke from Christabel, people passing out asleep on the sofas, Guinness galore... Wedding heaven.

It was also a bit of a history tour, with their wedding ceremony at Clifton House - a Georgian manor and one time Belfast poor house - and a reception at Grace Neill's - the oldest pub in Ireland.

I came home from Christabel and Roy's wedding wide awake and still laughing. Thanking my camera for scoring me the invite to the party of the year.

Ps. if you're thinking of getting married in a pub, you're our kinda couple. Do it! And give us a shout!

From the first moment I met them in London for coffee, I knew this was going to be a incredible day. The warmth, generosity and creativity of this pair is off the scale.

I love how the photographs of the early part of the day feel full of nervous anticipation, and how this gives way to absolute joy the minute they lay eyes on each other.

Seema and Neal had a civil ceremony followed by a Hindu blessing. Everything took place in Maunsel House, which is the most magical, higgeldy-piggledy menagerie/military museum/treasure trove you can imagine. The wedding feast, in the garden under the pergola, was perfect. I was a ridiculously happy vegetarian for once this weekend... And the party... let's just say that these photos are the tip of the iceberg : )

Jen + Mårten Beach Wedding Donegal, Ireland by This Modern Love

A wild and unplugged place to start the wind down after a crazy season. The sun will either be splitting the trees, or waves will be crashing onto the seafront houses in the mother of all storms. Donegal is a bit like that.

Jen & Mårten's beach wedding in Rosbeg and Portnoo encapsulated everything we love about the place. Jen spent a long summer with her family each year in Rosbeg growing up, and couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Her childhood friends cleared the beach of seaweed and flotsam for them to set up. Fishermen went about their business on the sands as Jen & Mårten exchanged vows. The reception was in Joe's Seafood Bar, which Joe Jr. had taken over running from Joe Sr.  The clouds gathered and parted and gathered again in this most wild and beautiful of settings for a wedding. And despite the wind and the cold, I don't think there was a break in the laughter or the banter all day long.

Mårten is a pilot by the way, in case you were wondering why people suddenly start throwing model planes at them...

Or put our heads above the parapet very much at all. We've been crazy busy travelling, shooting, editing, delivering. And our little guy just turned six months this week and finally gave us our first full night's sleep since March! I swear my right leg is twice as big as my left leg, rocking the baby bouncer as I work...

Here are a handful of frames from Iris & Brendan's New York-Chinese-Irish wedding back in July. They got married in Ballyfin Demesne, which is pretty much one of the most breathtaking estates we've been to in Ireland. A treasure-filled house, a Chinese tea ceremony, a midnight sparkler dance. Beautiful stuff.

A total pleasure to have the wonderful Aga from White Tea Photography second shooting this one. Double trouble ; )

Winnie + Simon //Mussenden Temple Wedding by This Modern Love

[audio:http://thismodernlove.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/06-Slow-Show.mp3]Mussenden Temple Wedding

When we posted a single image on facebook, the first frame here of Winnie and Simon at Downhill Demesne, Winnie wrote back, 'So beautiful. Puts us in our proper perspective. A tiny part of an epic sky'. I loved that.

Winnie and Simon's day blew me away to be honest. They got married in Mussenden Temple, with friends and family forming a circle around them. The circle was a constant - the temple walls and the dome above, the wedding bands and the cycle of Atlantic waves 120 feet below us. They mixed together two vials of sand, from Sandymount and Downhill, the two beaches they grew up on. The vows that they wrote themselves were poetic, beautiful, heartfelt. They choked me up.

Later on the speeches, no less poetic than the ceremony, set everyone off again. Myself included.

This wedding will stay under my skin for a long time I think.

Louise and Pete's wedding was a spectacular retro inspired celebration - so much fun and totally them. A pink polka-dot dress, teddy boy suits, Hairspray beehive hair, 60s garage songs and girl-groups. Genius. Louise's friend Russell Taysom illustrated all the bits and pieces you see here, which we totally loved.

Louise grew up near Parkanaur Manor House, where the wedding was, and swam in the pool when she was little.  Loved shooting some portraits there with them.

Once again we've pinched the guys' first dance song. It's just too perfect - Lou Reed, Satellite of Love.

Big thanks to Kat for featuring Louise and Pete's wedding on Rock n Roll Bride today. Head over there to see more details and hear Louise's story...

 

Siobhan & Sam //Wedding at Trudder Lodge, Wicklow by This Modern Love

[audio:http://thismodernlove.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/03-Step-Outside-In-The-Morning-Light.mp3] siobhan-b-2 storyboard005 siobhan-b-1 siobhan-trix-1b rosemary lemon wedding Ireland alternative Wedding Photography

Siobhan is a brilliant photographer who we've had the pleasure of getting to know over the last year or so. She and Sam pretty much epitomise the kind of people we love to work with. Their ceremony was in the garden at Trudder Lodge. Intimate and honest. Their day was so laid-back, soulful, full of warmth and every one having a great time.

And there was something about Trudder too.  The rambling, secretive garden and the house itself which had a homeliness to it, like you could move in tomorrow.

Siobhan and Sam also chose one of the best first dance songs and we’ve pinched it for this - Step Outside in the Morning Light by David Kitt.

I caught the same flight as Nicklas and the boys one grey Friday morning in Dublin. Just a couple of frames later and we're in Porto, making our way to the Swedish-Portuguese gathering that was Yaili and Nicklas' wedding.

Hotel Rural Casa dos Viscondes da Várzea, just outside the city of Lamego in the beautiful Douro region, was the perfect setting for the feasting. I've never seen so much food. If this is how weddings roll in Portugal, I'm totally in.

From a photography point of view this wedding was a dream. There was no brief other than the freedom to try and push things creatively. Can't ask for more than that.

Two weeks after baby no. 2 made his appearance here (more on that soon...) I photographed Vanessa & Colm's wedding in Belfast. Family is at the heart of nearly every wedding, but it's particularly special when a couple's kids get involved. Especially when they're as great as Daniel and Laila. Added to the mix was the Jamaican contingent - Vanessa's family - who helped make this day hilarious and unforgettable.

Vanessa & Colm's wedding was a brilliantly Belfasty day with a ceremony in the City Hall, dinner at Deanes and the reception at one of the city's finest watering holes, the Garrick. The third last image is the DJ telling me to F off ; ) I'm usually pretty good at sneaking around unobserved - but it was pretty hard to hide in the Garrick. Made for a good photograph though!

Esther & Michael //London Wedding by This Modern Love

Esther & Michael's wedding is a special one for us. Esther is an old friend and it was a total privilege to be asked to tell the story of her and Michael's day.

Things kicked off with fry-ups at their house, followed by an amble around the neighborhood to take some portraits before the ceremony. Most laid-back wedding morning of all time... We soon wound our way to St Vedast alias Foster, near St. Paul's Cathedral in London, where Esther and Michael walked each other up the aisle and exchanged vows in a really beautiful, personal ceremony.

Many hours later, the floorboards of the Old Finsbury Town Hall had been well and truly stomped on, cake-smushed and beer-christened in what was a truly epic celebration. That'll be a hard one to beat, 2013!

Danielle & Cian //Carlingford Wedding by This Modern Love

[audio:http://thismodernlove.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/01-May-It-Always-Be.mp3] Danielle&Cian-024b 37storyboard001 storyboard003 Danielle&Cian-547Danielle&Cian-568

Danielle & Cian met at a Bonnie Prince Billy gig in New Zealand (where Danielle is from). A conversation started over Cian's Johnny Cash t-shirt - and the rest is history...

The tune here is 'May it Always Be' from Bonnie Prince Billy's Ease Down the Road album - probably the best first dance song we've heard yet. We're pretty biased though - this is the first album Tim ever bought for Claire, so it has a lot of sentimental value as well as objectively kicking ass.

And what of the wedding? Simple, soulful, hilarious, beautiful. Wish we could do it all over again.
