Emma & Johnathan // Backyard wedding

A beautiful day of Emma & Johnathan was at the end of August and it took place in Co. Laois at its own backyard.

Do it your way.

Johnny is a dairy farmer and at the time they met Emma was working on a stud farm in Kildare, they got engaged on a weekend away in Sligo in June 2017 and set the date for 24th August 2018. They bought a beautiful 300 yr old farmhouse just up the road from Johnny’s home farm near Borris In Ossory Co.Laois and both being from a farming background decided where better to have their wedding reception than in the farmyard at their new home.

After moving in permanently in April 2018 the race was on to get the house and yard refurbished enough in time to host 100 guests, no small feat! With a lot of hard work, the once derelict hayshed was transformed into a unique drinks reception complete with bottles of beer cooling in the old feed troughs and straw bales for lounging on. A marquee was put up in the silage pit behind the hayshed for the main reception. More straw bales and homemade furniture completed the rustic theme with guests sitting down to a pig spit dinner and dancing the night away to DJ Stevie Dee. They wanted their wedding day to be all about what they hold most dear, the family, the friends and the love for all things farming, essentially it was a big barn dance with lots of prosecco and good food and they couldn’t have wished for a better day to celebrate their marriage surrounded by so much love!

It was my first wedding being filmed at own couples backyard and it was just perfect! It was privilege to be there and we are so thankful that Emma & Johnathan choose ERFilms being their Videographer for the day! We have created three films for Emma & Johnathan, teaser aka Instaclip which is perfect for Instagram, Cinematic Highlight film which is long enough to tell the story of the day and short enough to keep everyone watching, and Documentary film which is include most of the day and will be treasured most in a years ahead!
