If its good enough for Game of Thrones then surely its good enough for a newly wed bride and groom who live nearby. It always makes me proud to be a local when you see how often locations around our beautiful North Coast have been used to film scenes in the worldwide TV smash. Having been to Ballintoy Harbour many times, it wasn’t until a friend pointed out the little secluded beach to the right, that i realised just how often this area pops up on our screens.
Sara and David had first wanted to visit the tiny picturesque church on the west side of White Park Bay, known locally as the smallest church in Ireland, it sits nestled amounst the cliffs in the tiny village of Portbradden. Discovering on a recki that sadly its now closed until further notice, I suggested we visit this secluded and normally sheltered private beach as an alternative. Not so sheltered on the wedding day, the bridal party stuck with me and we grabbed what we could before we froze from the chilly wind blowing through it like a tunnel.
Davids grandparents then welcomed us to their humbling and picture perfect gardens, where we continued the photoshoot with both families. After a quick catch up and a warming cup of tea we made our way across to The Manor House Hotel in Kilrea so the bride and groom could get the party underway.
