We had a lot of fun documenting this day! House party weddings, with their free flowing nature, offer so many spontaneous moments for curious photographers to capture. It also made a refreshing change for us to spend most of the day outside in the sun!
Claire selected her grandmother's old house for her outdoor reception party. In the morning, her friends helped her prepare the garden for the guests. Claire joined Alastair around midday for a short civil ceremony officiated by the mayor in the town of Cauneille. After one last dress change back at the house (this dress was designed by her friend Juliette) , Claire met Alastair again for a Catholic service at the neighbouring church.
In the evening, guests dined outside in the garden and listened to the speeches. Some spontaneous ceili dancing erupted before it was deemed too dark to dance outside. The party continued inside the neighbouring outbuilding, with a DJ set by Guy MacNamara.
