An Alternative Mount Druid Wedding for an Alternative Couple

I only got to sit down and meet Collette, Alan and her bridesmaids a few days before the wedding and I knew this was going to be an interesting day. The two of them are quirky and funny. Instead of running through the wedding details as I had expected for their alternative Mount Druid wedding, we were witnesses to a €50.00 bet as to whether one of the entrance songs was sung or just a vocal. And I am not prepared to say whether that €50.00 got paid out or not……Mount Druid Wedding

Collette is not your typical girly bride, she wore white wellies as her make up and hair was prepped! She kept laughing at herself when I was taking photos of her in her wedding dress. But, she really was stunning in her wedding dress from White Rooms Mullingar. In true Collette style she got to leave in a cool VW beetle to head to the tin chapel for her ceremony. Meanwhile, Anna had fun with the lads. who had to watch utube videos in order to get dressed! And then Anna ended up photographing Alan with some locals in the pub. lads getting ready for wedding at mount druid bride getting ready for a wedding at mount druid estate black and white photos at wedding at mount druid bridesmaids at wedding at mount druid wedding at mount druid wedding couple vw van at alternative wedding mount druid

reception at the boathouse mount druid weddingWith a flurry of lashing rain just as everyone left the tin chapel, it was a free for all to get to shelter in the boathouse. And wow, what a cool place to kick back have a few drinks and snacks. Even Collette and Alan sat out the back with a cuppa. Then, Piddles the dog, gave us a sign that the weather had improved – he was out and about. So we called our families out for some photos by the lake.

Inside the barn at Mount Druid, how cute are all the teacups lining the walls, the rocking horse and all the bunting. A real photographer’s paradise.

The guests all enjoyed another drink in the barn, before an informal dinner was served with time for some great speeches afterwards, then more drinks, and yes, after the first dance to a Phillip Phillips song, some crazy dancing with Collette seen holding her dress up in order to go crazy on the dance floor to the Madisons band. Truly a stunning alternative Mount Druid wedding. Looking forward to shooting more weddings in Mount Druid!
