‘Karen and Paul’s’ big day was my second time to shoot at ‘The Anglers Rest.’ . It’s such a lovely venue, right on the doorstep of the Phoenix park and the area really comes into its own in Autumn time.
Karen the lady of the day and her maid of honor Niamh got their hair and make up done in ‘Queen’ in Dublin City centre. I got to meet up with them for some some portraits at Karen and Paul’s apartment, before heading down to the Anglers to hook up with Paul for a few pre ceremony pics.
Karen’s wedding dress was from ‘Jenny Packham’
The weather was unseasonably mild, Paul,Paddy and his dad had a good laugh at the outdoor stove in full blaze in the early afternoon. I love the Ambiance of the Anglers, even though it’s only ten minutes from the city, once you turn down the road for the strawberry beds it feels like you are 100 miles away!
Karen and Paul had a lovely relaxed ceremony which set the tone for the day, after some family shots in the venue we then headed to the park for a few more photos with the wedding party. After the meal and speeches “Smooth” the band (the Dublin one) got the night off to a great start with the first dance song.
A big thanks to Karen and Paul for choosing me to document their special day!
