I love photographing Dublin City weddings! I know many people complain about lack of parking and crowds in the streets. But there’s such great vibe to a wedding in the city! The usual streets and buildings come out in a completely different light. Everything around you becomes so happy, festive and special! The streets you walk every day suddenly have a new meaning – they are now the streets you walk as husband and wife… Isn’t it magical? Elaine and James felt the same way. They organized their Dublin wedding at Fallon & Byrne, a chic spot with gourmet food. And it’s a stone’s throw away from Grafton Street.
Autumn Wedding in Dublin City
The couple said that their wedding was all about location. They originally met at work on South William Street and spent many a lunchtime walking through St Stephen’s green with a coffee in their hands. This was the reason why Elaine and James picked that part of Dublin for their wedding. Elaine got ready in the Shelbourne Hotel in the morning. Their unique and personalized ceremony was held in the beautiful Unitarian Church. Afterwards we went off to the Green itself for amazing couple photos. Dublin didn’t disappoint – the late September erupted in a festival of sunshine and colourful leaves.
Elaine and James aimed for a relaxed city wedding with a look of elegance and lots of botanical elements. Elaine looked like she walked off a magazine cover in her Folkster Bridal wedding gown. Fleur Weddings created the most amazing flower arrangements to complement the look.
Wedding at Fallon & Byrne
Being personal was a key factor for Elaine and James, and you could see it in every part of their day. The Unitarian Church is a beautiful place that allows for a unique personalized ceremony. Elaine and James had heartwarming readings and Celtic music, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church as the couple said their vows. Elaine continued to cry throughout the whole ceremony! Fallon & Byrne itself is also famous for being a fantastic blank canvas for your wedding at Fallon & Byrne. Its location is hard to beat, and the food and wine are remarkable. The venue has large windows and white walls that you can use to create any atmosphere you want.
Elaine and James were so relaxed in their wedding planning, and it paid off in full. They were a beautiful couple to watch on the day, enjoying their time together. After the emotional ceremony they took a slow walk through the sun-lit St Stephen’s Green and streets of Dublin. We ended up in the familiar Long Hall pub for a romantic pint before heading off to meet the guests. The whole day was about joy and laughter, with heartwarming speeches and dancing late into the night.
