Introducing a wedding at The Baths Clontarf.
Like most couples, Sarah and Patrick dreamed of a typical Irish wedding but the dreaded Covid for the last year had thrown a spanner in the works. Sarah was conscious that her mum and dad had not been well and did not want to wait any longer to have that precious moment of her dad walking her down the aisle. So the pair of them decided for now to have a little 6 guest wedding under level 5 restrictions.
With the family connections in Clontarf, they planned a wonderful intimate Wedding at the Baths in Clontarf, getting married overlooking the Clontarf strand, followed by some photos and then a little dinner celebration.
The day turned out to be pretty wild, blowing a gale and spitting rain. But, the minute, little Robyn, their daughter rocked up in her red coat with the cutest cheeky grin, the day just felt so bright and amazing. And with such a stunning backdrop as the beautifully styled Baths in Clontarf, it really didn’t matter.
A few well wishers were waiting outside to welcome Sarah and her dad who arrived in style in a vintage Rolls Royce. It was so nice for the pair of them to be married by their good friend that Sarah had worked with and is now officiating weddings.
I think a wedding during Covid is very special as its been a rocky road to get to that moment. It really showed in the love and emotion when the pair of them got to see each other. The tears just fell.
There were some funny moments too during their wedding at the Baths when the ring was left in the car and a quick exit was needed to get it. They had set up zoom call too and lots of friends and family who probably should have been at work, watched the ceremony and even took part with readings while on zoom.
With the weather being so dismal, it was decided to do most of the photos indoors but the newlyweds were real sports and agreed to go out just for a quick walk along the strand to take in the sea breeze.
Boy was it cold and windy, with Sarah’s hair flying in all directions but it was exhilarating and a nice moment to just capture the Poolbeg chimneys in the distance, even if the tide was out. They raced back in to the warmth of the Baths Clontarf to enjoy their dinner and be thankful to have made it officially to Mr and Mrs. Robyn definitely seemed the happiest about that, jumping for joy, the moment her parents tied the knot. Now officially a little unit, ready for life’s new adventures.
