This Christmas wedding started on a bright but chilly day at the bride’s home. Carolyn and Cathal are now living in Vancouver, and I had met them during the Summer for a chat and a few “Engagement Photos” in St. Stephen’s Green. One of these was used for the signing photo you can see below. As I was photographing the bride, a colleague of mine Stephen Sheridan was with the groom and groomsmen.
We then went on to the University Church. It’s a hidden gem in St. Stephen’s Green, and often overlooked by casual passers-by. It’s had a few refurbishments in recent years, and is now looking very well, with a gold Baroque interior. It can be a little dark though – especially on some Winter days. Following the ceremony, we went into the park and then onto Grafton St. for some more photos. It was still a little early for the Christmas Lights to be visible, so we went into Neary’s Pub for a quick drink. Then, back to the Shelbourne, to be welcomed in to the sound of bagpipes.
Inside there were some more photos – some family ones and a few posed ones – mainly on the stairway landing. Finally, we went on the the main reception room for the meal, followed by dancing. The couple had a magnificent Cheese Cake as an interesting alternative to the usual wedding cake.
