I feel like this blog needs a warning, it isn’t often that my breath is truly taken away when I see a bride’s wedding dress but seriously, check out this alternative dress from Harrods in London. Caroline is a jewellery designer, therefore I expected some style and flair in her fashion choices for the wedding but I was incredibly excited to see that she chose not to wear the traditional white gown.
Caroline and Paul got married in the Unitarian Church at St Stephens Green and chose the classically beautiful Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin for their reception. The bride’s proud mum walked her down the aisle to a nervous Paul where they exchanged their vows with a few tears and a few laughs as well.
Once the couple had said their ‘I do’s’ we were able to take a walk through St. Stephen’s Green to photograph their intimate portraits under the leafy shade from the sunshine. It’s always great to have some alone time for the photos and being able to relax and take a walk means we get the most out of the time there.
As stylish as Caroline was, I have to do a shout out for the groom too of course as Paul wore a deep navy blue three piece suit and navy tie to match. Both Paul’s suit and Caroline’s black and floral gown was offset with their bold flowers by Donna Ryan from Donna the Florist in Donnybrook. The flowers were filled with reds, pinks and purples. While their mini bridal party looked the cutest in their cream suits and dresses.
Once we’d taken all our photographs at St Stephen’s Green, the newlyweds had a stunning classic car to ferry them to the Intercontinental Hotel driven by Robert Gray. I loved some of the photos of them in it, it suited their stylish wedding vibe so well. I even won a highly commended award from the Irish Professional Photographer and Videographer Association for the black and white image of them in their car. It’s one of my favourites!
Once at the hotel, the party could begin! It was time for mingling with family and friends in the luxurious setting, and getting some fun photos of old friends. It’s often my favourite time of the day when everyone begins to let their hair down and let loose. No doubt the photos of the bride and groom with their dearest friends will be ones to hang on their walls for sure!
