Dublin City Centre has a huge choice of venues to host your wedding, big or small. But this one is definitely among my favourites! Overlooking the iconic Ha’Penny Bridge, the Woollen Mills is a fantastic space for an intimate family celebration. I was especially excited to hear that you can even host your ceremony there as well! And that’s exactly what Cliodhna and Conor did on a gorgeous summer’s day, surrounded by their closest family and friends for their wedding at the Woollen Mills.
The Woollen Mills has centuries-old history and it’s most certainly one of the most iconic buildings in Dublin. Can you believe that James Joyce himself worked here?? In this quintessentially Irish establishment they take Irish heritage with pride and serve an incredible quality of food and drink. I love seeing a quirky menu at a wedding dinner, and the Woollen Mills certainly won’t disappoint in this regard!
The four-storey is almost literally sitting on top of the Ha’Penny Bridge, in the very heart of Dublin. There is a roof terrace overlooking the iconic Dublin skyline, and it’s really a magical feeling being totally surrounded by the city. If you watch people for long-enough you’ll definitely spot a familiar face!
Cliodhna & Conor and their Wedding at the Woollen Mills
The venue is perfect for mid-size and intimate weddings. The most popular Riverrun Room seats up to 28 people. It is filled with light and offers stunning views of the Ha’Penny Bridge. It’s right across from the Roof Terrace – a larger space accommodating 80 guests. It has a fully retractable roof for rainy days but Cliodhha and Conor were in luck and got to have their outdoor ceremony there!
It was really important for them to incorporate as much of their favourite Dublin into their wedding day as possible, so we took a long-stroll pre-ceremony along O’Connell Street, across into the Temple Bar with a stop at the iconic pub itself. Cliodhna and Conor are young parents to a beautiful baby boy, and the morning stroll was a wonderful opportunity for them to spend time as a couple, before joining all their family and friends for the festivities.
They incorporated their son’s naming ceremony into their wedding, which was extra special with all the family present. I absolutely loved all the joy and love surrounding their beautiful family, it was truly an honour to capture it.
