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.
The flowers and bouquets were a bit different – and included some specific flowers and colours at the request of the bride
Personalised satin/silk kimonos for all the bridal party
Candles in the chapel – they were briefly lit before the ceremony, as this makes them easier for the Bride & Groom to light later.
The celebrant (The Venerable David Pierpoint, Archdeacon of Dublin) preparing the altar before anyone arrived
The bride arrived in a vintage Rolls-Royce (from 1948, as you can gather from the number plate)
Love the white-walled tyres
The bride was “given away” by her mother and brother.
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
