Alternative Wedding Photography Northern Ireland | Belfast | Pete & Tracy

Tracy and Pete, as you will see, do things a little differently, but I’ll get to that in a moment.

The bridal party made their preparations at the Europa Hotel; they then walked over to the ceremony at Belfast City Hall and held the reception at the Barking Dog Restaurant.

The Wishart wedding was understated and beautiful. It was also a day (and night) full of happiness and laughter.

But before all of the very funny speeches and epic dance moves from everyone, they wanted portraits taken around Belfast’s famous landmarks, and our transport around the city? A Black Taxi of course!

Tracy and Pete also wanted to make a statement. This is Lanark Way. In Belfast this street connects the Protestant Shankill Road and the Catholic Springfield Road. It’s what is known as the “interface” and these gates are still closed every night at 9pm to separate the two communities’. Why is this significant? Tracy and Pete are now married, but in Northern Ireland, their marriage is a “mixed marriage”. Standing in the middle of such symbols of segregation and separation shows how defiant they are against any hate in this world and shows their love can conquer anything!
