What a fun and sun-filled day at this wedding at the Haven Hotel Dunmore East! When Suzanne told me about their plans I couldn’t wait for her and Tom’s big day. I mean, a Tim Burton-themed wedding on Friday 13th with 2 snow white husky bears?? How is this not one of the coolest ideas you’ve heard? Then I met Suzanne and Tom together for their engagement session in Fitzwilliam Square. We talked about everything in the world and I knew that we’d get along fine.

Haven Hotel Dunmore East Wedding

I’d gone to check out the Haven Hotel Dunmore East a few weeks before the wedding and fell in love. No wonder Suzanne chose it in her native Waterford! The day I visited the sun was beaming down, the sea was gorgeous and inviting, and the hotel setting looked heavenly. The little park across from the hotel is an ideal spot for photos. It has gorgeous greenery and a little hidden away beach. The cliffs overlook the bay dotted with brightly coloured yachts. Suzanne assured me that it would rain on the day (she and Tom have a history of attracting rain!) but we were in the middle of the summer heatwave and not a drop fell from the clear sky.

Wedding Day

The day went along exactly as planned. The morning was as hectic as it should be, despite Suzanne’s famous lists. The bride was radiant and the ceremony beautiful with cherry blossom trees all around the church. The bears were 100% adorable even in the July heat and the guests had tons of fun. The speeches flew by in the roars of laughter and a few emotional tears, and the dancing went on well into the night. As perfect as it gets!
 
“I am complete amazed! When a photographer can work with bears, sun and probably the most random family in the world, you know it’s good. I can’t believe it. They are wonderful and I’m very excited with the beautiful photos.”
