Gemma & David met during their time at Trinity College, and their photos actually includes one of them standing outside the chemistry department. The day started at the home of the bride’s mother in Sandyford. This was in a modern apartment, with extensive views over South Dublin. Following some family and very informal photos here, I headed on into Trinity College , where the ceremony was to take place in the chapel.

Trinity College (TCD) Chapel

Candles in the chapel – they were briefly lit before the ceremony, as this makes them easier for the Bride & Groom to light later.

Various photos around Trinity College

As it was a lovely day, we had a walk around the Trinity grounds for a few photos – many of them had a special meaning for the couple
