Tania & Gary Get Wed

The Ceremony and Reception of Tania Johnston and Gary Williamson

It was back in May 2014 at the Mad Masquerade May Charity Ball in the Glenavon Hotel Cookstown that I had the good fortune of sharing the table with a then unknown Tania Johnston and her fiancé Gary Williamson.

As is customary, I had my Nikon on tow to record the event for posterity and after the formal proceedings did a walk around, capturing guests in all their finery and masquerades.

I thought little of it after posting the images of the event to Facebook (where they were very popular indeed) until I got a message from Tania in June this year asking whether I would be interested in doing the photography for her forthcoming marriage to Gary, in October 2015.

“Absolutely”, I said. And there I was, official photographer for the civil ceremony and reception at the White River House Hotel and Restaurant in Toomebridge.

From early on, it was clear that ‘Tania & Gary Get Wed’ wasn’t going to be some stuffy ceremony, but a fun event with a farming theme – including a Massey Ferguson 546 as the official wedding limousine!

That was my video trailer of the marriage of Tania and Gary, one of the most relaxed, yet uplifting days of photography I had the pleasure to record. Thanks Tania and Gary and all your guests for a great day and my very best wishes for a tremendous future of love and happiness!!
