Dee and Paul wanted a city centre Dublin Wedding, and they got it in bucket loads. I started off photographing the girls in Templelogue while Anna popped over to Knocklyon. I loved Dee’s fabulous Laboutin shoes which she assured me were easy to walk in. I travelled into the Unitarian Church on St Stephen’s Green with the bridesmaids. The ceremony though solemn was quite quirky, we loved the music in the church performed by their friends. Unusual to see a sax in a church! After the ceremony, we managed to fit the guests all on the footpath in front of the Luas for a group shot and then went over to Stephens Green with the family for some photos.
It was quite hectic in the Green with loads of Spanish students passing by and tourists sunbathing on the grass. They loved watching all the action of the wedding photography in Dublin city centre.
Everyone headed down Grafton Street to meet all the guests at Kehoes Pub. We photographed on the move with the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street passers by. We stopped by the flower sellers for a moment and they gave Dee a sunflower! In Kehoes, it was packed, everyone was enjoying a pint either inside or outside on the street. After about an hour, all the guests were collected by a bus to bring them to the Clayton Hotel while I headed off with Dee and Paul to Sandymount Strand for some calm and Anna travelled on the bus with the guests. I didn’t spend too long on the beach as the newleyweds were keen to get back to the party. All the guests were outside in the front garden soaking up the summer rays when they arrived. Dee and Paul got some friend shots before heading in to see the stunning banqueting room. We loved the three tier naked sponge cake decorated with fresh fruit and all their party props. We left them to enjoy the night festivities, and their subsequent honeymoon in Sorrento, Italy.
