This is the story of Ciara & Aisling and their very slick Smock Alley Theatre Wedding. Dublin City is such a beautiful place to get married however there is something very cool (expose the pun) about a Winter Wedding (during the Christmas Holidays) in the City.
Ciara & Aisling contacted me two full years before they tied the knot to see if I would capture their big day. These are two outrageously organised Brides who knew exactly what they wanted. You see a few years back I captured a candid picture of these two lovebirds dancing like nobody was watching at Dee & Rob’s beautiful Wicklow Wedding (www.fotograph.ie/gallery/dee-and-rob-wedding/). When they saw this photo, they told me that they wanted me to be apart of their wedding day.
And what a superb wedding day it was! The winter sun was shining as the Brides-To-Be for ready in the 4 Seasons Ballsbride. They had a very emotional ‘First Look’ then visited ‘Dakota’ on South William Street where they’d enjoyed their very first date. Next we strolled around the uber cool part of Dublin to various locations I had previously scouted for their wedding portraits to include some beautiful and funky Dublin City Backdrops. At ‘Love Lane’, Temple Bar the Ladies popped opened smoke grenades for some slick photos and all of this happened before the ceremony!!!
This was my first time capturing a Smock Alley Theatre Wedding (www.smockalley.com) and I have to say I absolutely love the venue. The light, the simple space and the stunning stained glass windows. For those of you looking for an intimate civil ceremony in the City, Smock Alley is a superb choice. Both ceremony and the wedding reception at the Angler’s Rest were decorated to perfection by the outrageously talented Vintage Affair (www.vintageaffair.ie). The icing on the cake however was the table plan and individual place cards! The lady’s commissioned the artist Charlie from ‘Hey Draw Me’ (www.heydrawme.com) to draw caricatures of every single guest so that your cartoon face adorned your table place. Possibly one of the coolest and most unique things I have ever seen at a wedding to date…FACT!!!
