JEAN BARRETT QUINN
'Hi I'm Jean! I am Humanist Celebrant accredited through the charity Humanists UK.
I write and conduct joyful, inclusive, personal, meaningful and legal non- religious ceremonies in Northern Ireland.
I will always be humbled by my couples trust in me to write their love stories. Working together I learn about the joy, the loss, the pain, the heart break, the tears running down their faces and sides hurting from laughing and the incredible choices that they have made to lead them to celebrating with their chosen person on their wedding day. On the day I deliver a warm ceremony that encapsulates all of this celebrating you and those you are closest too, also whilst marrying the heck out of you of course!
I love my job, can you tell?!'
LIT PHOTOGRAPHY NI
'Hiya, I’m Lauren. Empath, deep thinker, happiness radiator, and a chatty and cheerful wedding photographer in Northern Ireland.
So I’ve got a little theory about wedding photography. If you wouldn’t do it on date night, you shouldn’t have to do it on your wedding day. Because whoever you love and however you show it, your love is special because it’s yours. You’ve found your person! Silly jokes only the two of you find funny, arms snuggling around familiar waists, a little look you only ever give each other. The smallest of moments that feel like home.
And that’s the love I want to capture. I want you to look at the photos and see you. Blissfully happy, hopelessly besotted you. So we won’t be spending all day working our way through a Pinterest checklist, chasing the ‘perfect photo’. I want us to get excited together, joke around, have fun, and go through the day as a little three-wheel team. I want to give you a wedding day where your experience comes first, and the photos follow after.
I’m going to give you wedding photos you’ll always love. And not because we’ve created picture-perfect frames. But because we’ve captured real moments, and the moments themselves were perfect.'
OLD BARN CATERING
'Old Barn Catering are delighted to have been catering weddings at Larchfield Estate for ten years – it is fair to say that we love the venue! From the effortless charm of the main barn to the wonderful and varied gardens, Larchfield provides the perfect back drop for us to cater to our guests'
