Gemma + Steven’s Bishop’s Gate Hotel wedding

Gemma & Steven were married on Friday 2nd August 2019, during a ceremony at Bishop’s Gate Hotel, Derry, where they also hosted their reception.

I had a ball photographing these guys. They used to work together in Roe Park Resort, where Steven was the head chef and Gemma was a waitress.  They worked together for years, and then at a staff night out they really got to talk to each other and there was just an instant connection from then on.

I absolutely loved the style of this day and Gemma & Steven certainly showed that a city wedding can be oh so chic! Gemma wowed guests with her choice of mermaid style Justin Alexander gown, while her bridesmaids looked elegant in grey embellished floor length dresses. The gents definitely dressed to impress too, with navy tuxedos proving perfect for the occasion.

Following the beautiful ceremony, we were able to meander through the city, using cobbled streets and hidden gardens as our backdrop for photos.

We made our way back to the venue for the speeches, meal and cake cutting before the happy couple took to the dance floor for their first dance to James Bay’s ‘Move Together’.

Gemma & Steven jetted off to Mauritius for 2 weeks for a well-earned honeymoon.

Congratulations guys! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together.
