Quirky Dublin City Wedding: Ashleigh & Andrew

Ashleigh and Andrew had their Quirky Dublin City Wedding back in August.  It was an early start for us as we drove down from Belfast to Ashleigh and Andrews home in Dublin where Ashleigh and her girls were getting ready.  We started off with the details upstairs with the dresses and shoes and jewelry.  I love the blush colour of Ashleigh’s dress!! once we got all the details done we got some quick shots of the fab team from Angel Hair and Make-up getting the girls all dolled up.  

Soon enough it was time to head off on the church and meet up with Andrew and his lads.  We arrived with plenty of time and were able to  get lots of detail shots of all the little things the guys had arranged, Soon enough the guests began to arrive shortly followed by Andrew and his lads.  We got these great shots of the boys coming up the street and then we took them into the garden and got these great shots of them together. 


Soon enough the girls arrived driven by the guys from the Station House hotel. it was very windy outside so we managed to get the girls into a lightly more sheltered part of the church grounds and then they were able to huddle in the porch of the church while we got some shots with Ashleigh and her dad in the car. 

Soon enough it was time to head inside and for the ceremony to get underway.  The service was lovely and really touching i don’t think there was a dry eye in the place possibly even including me and Hannah.  The couple had included a lot of their friends in the service for the band to the readers to the prayers it was all really personal to the couple and their lives.  Following the Ceremony Tea and cakes were served in the upper gallery of the church and we took some time to get some casual shots here before taking the couple outside the church of a few shots. 

Following this we headed off to the Station House Hotel.  We arrived a little before the couple and managed to get all the detail shots of the room before they arrived.  once the couple arrived we took them along to the hidden garden at the hotel and got these lovely shots of them.  We met up with the bridal party and got some shots with them there too before it was time for everyone to head into Dinner.  The Couple had decided to do speeches between main course and dessert so soon enough it was time for everyone to head in for Dinner. 

Following the Speeches it was time for us to head off home or well to our temporary home in a hotel near by.
