Meghan & Jack met in Ireland while Meghan was doing her Masters at Trinity College – but actually met in a pub in Rathmines. Meghan is  originally from the USA and Jack from Dublin, and they got engaged on top of Sugarloaf Mountain in Wicklow.

The bridal preparation began in one of the Trinity rooms – and so they had just a short walk to the chapel for the ceremony. The chapel in Trinity is used by a variety of Christian traditions, and therefore, perfect for their wedding ceremony, which was co-officiated between a Catholic Priest and Protestant Pastor. Miniature Irish and US flags were provided for the guests to take on exiting the chapel. Rather than the usual “receiving line”, the guests formed up outside the chapel – waving their flags in the sunshine.

It was a lovely bright day, and we started with some photographs in Trinity, before travelling to St. Stephen’s Green for a few more. Then – on to the nearby Shelbourne hotel for the main reception and later dancing.
