Wedding Season in Derry and Donegal by Neil Mellon Photography

August 18, 2015  •  1 Comment


I'm totally new to this blogging melarky and will start to put them up as i go along wedding by wedding, or even on other shoots. 

I am well into the wedding season at the minute and am shooting 3 weddings over the next 2 weeks which is gonna be fun. On top of that we are also doing 6 photobooths in the same time period, so the pressure is on!!!

I have to say that i truly love it and absolutely thrive under the pressure of a big day. I totally love the buzz and am thrilled that the couple have chosen me to be part of their special day and to capture the moment in my own special way.  I love the excitement and nervousness throughout the houses in the morning, and the excitement at the service just before the bride makes her grand entrance......with her partner waiting excitedly at the alter. 

From there of course i love whisking the couple away with the bridal party for a fun photoshoot, keeping the couple behind after for a one to one shoot in which you can truly feel their love for each other. 

From there its onto the reception where we cover the arrival of the couple along with the general atmosphere of the party, speeches, cake cutting and first dance along with some other party manouvers which are happening on the dance floor!!


If you are interested in booking me to be part of your special day anywhere in Ireland or the UK, please don't hesitate to contact me on 07514289650.

We also look forward to seeing all of you future brides at the upcoming Perfect Bliss Wedding Fayres!! -

Sorry i havent got to update this, so here goes!

Well with Christmas fast approaching we have a few things planned for the coming month. We are just off the back of two weddings with two lovely couples - Shauna & John and Paul & Eugene. We also just shot two formals in the lovely Everglades Hotel in the city ( ) which were really busy. This is our favourite time of year as we get to do a lot of santa shoots with pets, as well as with children!!!

We will be in the Waterfoot Hotel ( ) throughout all of the Sundays in December (starting on November the 30th) up to xmas along with Santa, so feel free to call in and get a pressie as well as your picture taken with Santa!! Meanwhile our Saturdays will be busy working with Jollyes Pet Stores doing pet portraits with an Xmas Theme!!! These are very busy, so come early to avoid disappointment. We will be in Bangor, Ballymena, Coleraine and the Derry/Londonderry Store. Ring your local store for more details.

We hope to see you all at some stage throughout our travels, either way have a happy xmas!!!!

Hi folks and welcome to my new website. I'm very excited and to be honest this is a long time coming. I should have had this sorted out 2 years ago, but ach well, its here now!!

Over the past two years, i have been concentrating on photography portrait work with families, children and even doggys. Moving forward, I will be still doing the portrait work, but i will also be concentrating on weddings, as its something that i LOVE to shoot!!! We have been covering weddings mainly in Derry and Donegal, and have also covered some weddings other parts of Northern Ireland too, as well as in the south (Dublin).  We have been very busy with our photobooth and 2015 is almost booked out!! Which is great news and a testament to how brilliant it is as a lot of bookings are word of mouth.  You can check out the photobooth facebook page at . Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any queries at all. You can contact us on the 'Contact' page of the website. I'll blog some more soon once i get up and running!!!
