Introducing a Micro-Wedding at Dublin City Centre for the adventurers Amy and Paddy
This fun loving couple were due to have a big rustic themed wedding with dream catchers and all that fun stuff at Tulfarris Hotel in Blessington but like so many couples had to be postponed because of the Pandemic. So to celebrate the date, they ended up celebrating an extra rustic day as the wedding party was on their deck at home in the Wicklow mountains! With a micro-wedding at Dublin City Centre thrown in. The date for the original wedding was 20th June 2020. They were mad keen to celebrate this date even though their plans were ruined as that was the date they met five years ago. So they got in touch with Vincent Whelan of Spritual Ceremonies Ireland and were able to perform an intimate, safe ceremony at the Spiritual Ceremonies offices in Clondalkin. A true micro-wedding at Dublin City Centre with a hippie rustic theme for their later family celebrations at home in Wicklow.I was blown away by how cool my lovely bride Amy looked as the emerged from her car! Amy wore a 70s style hippie dress with bell sleeves and a crochet train, a flower crown and the best of all pink hair. Paddy looked so handsome in his kilt beside her. They were fun loving and asked for a few mask photos to commemorate the day. With such a boho looking bride and even though we were in Clondalkin, I managed to spot a meadow across the main road and it didn’t take the couple much persuasion to come across for a few photos to compliment their rustic themed wedding. And Amy being very organised had brought three pairs of shoes to suit all terrains. So we made sure she got a chance to change into them along the way.
We drove like police escorts behind them into town and stopped off at Liberty Lane for a more retro look with the colourful graffiti, her signature Doc Martens and I was blown away by the super cool engraved Guinness pint glasses they got to celebrate the day. Then we walked down Grafton Street to the shock of many passers by and hung out with Phil Lynott himself. I asked them to take a stroll to Anne Lane for the colourful sky of umbrellas. There was some outdoor drinking in the lane by city centre visitors and the pair were met with big applause. Amy couldn’t get out of there quick enough!
A last trip for their micro-wedding at Dublin City Centre would have to be the clock at Stephens Green Shopping Centre. We just managed to climb the escalators to the top before the security guards were telling us to leave. But the main thing, was we got the photos first!I left the happy couple to travel back to their family who were patiently waiting for them to party outdoors for the evening overlooking the wicklow mountains.
Amy and Paddy had some great words of wisdom when they thought about their wedding day.
“Literally nothing matters anymore wedding wise, the venue, the seating at the ceremony, location of ceremony, what way it’s done. Makes you realise you don’t need anything big and fussy and that’s how we knew we were doing it for the right reasons“
