Ken & Shea, Anglers Rest


Ken and Shea were such a nice couple and it was a joy to photograph their wedding! It was a beautiful hot day in August which resulted in sun-kissed photos outdoors. It's difficult to think of a more stunning location to hold a ceremony than Dublin's City Hall. The celebrant was a personal friend of Ken and Shea's and it made the ceremony even more special to them. After all the greetings were done and the family photos were taken, I took the couple to the War Memorial Gardens in Islandbridge for some shots. They were driving an red Alpha Romeo Graduate which drew a lot of attention! The reception took place in the Anglersrest at the Strawberries Beds. As the weather was so nice, the guests were able to sit outside and enjoye the sunshine. The room upstairs where the meal took place later was beautifully decorated. During the reception, I photographed the guests as they were chatting and enjoying themselves, catching up with old friends or relatives or making new friends, getting plenty of natural and unposed photos. I must say that Shea and Ken's friends were particulary elegant, as they were themselves, and there was a formidable array of dickie bows and waiscoats that came in many colours. The speeches were emotional and drew much laughter. I stayed to cover a few dances and then I left as the party was in full swing and the revellers were doing their Beyoncé moves on the packed dance floor.
