It's always extra special when I get to photograph a wedding for friends; so what better way to start my blog than with Kayleigh and Neal in Dublin City Centre. The ceremony was in the stunning City Hall on Dame street and the ultra chic Dean Hotel on Harcourt street.
I've been looking forward to finally getting a wedding in City Hall, as I haven't set foot inside since a school trip many (many) years ago. I recommend any couple thinking of having a Dublin wedding to consider this hugely overlooked venue,not only for the perfect location but for the epic interior.
The ceremony was a pleasure to photograph; the couple were full of smiles and giggles, and there was more than one tear shed amongst the guests. After all the hugs, congratulations and a few couple only shots in City Hall we headed for The Dean Hotel on Harcourt street.
The Dean Hotel has ultra chic rooms with a cool retro feel, but still has a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, which matched the wedding perfectly!
Kayleigh and her family had collected and created the hanging decorations, lanterns and geometric candle holders as well as the gorgeous wedding favours. These personal DIY touches echo a couples personality, and make the reception extra special.
I was so excited to photograph the awesome neon sign in the reception area, I used my favourite lighting technique to really bring out the couple and give it a retro cinematic style.
Kayleigh and Neal created a unique, creative and memorable wedding truly befitting of such an awesome couple.
