Elaine & Colum had their wedding recently on an bright Autumn day with lots of sunshine. The day started in Elaine’s house for the hair, makeup and usual bridal preparations. Then on to Trinity College Chapel for the wedding ceremony.
During the ceremony, the singing and music was provided by the Anthem Singers choir. Following the ceremony, we had some time to take photographs in the grounds, before heading on to the reception.
The reception was held in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Blackrock. It’s set among beautiful, well-kept grounds, and has many locations to relax, walk and take photos. This time we stayed mainly in the gardens at the front, but also used the rear hotel entrance. There are some steps here and a portico, so I find this perfect for the more formal family and group photos.
Following some photos in the grounds, we went indoors for the main reception. They had decided to have the speeches at the beginning – before the meal. as always, there are advantages and disadvantages to this – but it worked out very well in this case.
