Deirdre & Michael’s Laidback Wedding at The Seafield Hotel
Michael & Deirdre must be one of our most laid back couples! We met in Howth and chatted over Tea and I was delighted when they asked me to photograph their wedding in Seafield Hotel, as Michael’s brother & Best man, Kev, is a friend of mine! Deirdre always wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony and she got her wish thanks to Seafiled and of course just a bit of luck with our changeable Irish Weather.
They both got ready in Seafield surrounded by family & friends, with a few of bubbly to calm the nerves. Deirdre walked down the aisle with her mam to a gorgeous outdoor ceremony with the sound of the sea and a few horses grazing in the grass behind. The tied the knot with a handfasting ceremony and the guests clapped and rang bells as they walked away as newlyweds.
The sun came out while the guests were mingling on the lawn and we took the time to do some photos with the whole bridal party. Seafield’s Wedding Coordinator Patrick then whisked us away on a golf buggy down the beach for some more pics. Deirdre threw on her Converse so she could stroll on the beach and I think they both enjoyed the little break before heading back. They both really relaxed when we got back and were having the craic with their friends and family before heading into dinner. The speeches were great, their love of music came across and I think Bruce Springsteen was mentioned about three times! Their first dance was ‘Only You’ by Yazoo and then everyone joined them up on the dancefloor! We really enjoyed the day too thanks, Deirdre & Michael! XX
