The Westin Hotel Wedding
Dublin Wedding Photographer
The enchanted Dublin city wedding of Denise and Thomas.
From East Wall, not too far from the banks of the river Liffey to Tallaght.
From the bustling city streets to the most elegant Westin Hotel on Collage Green.
This couple completely embraced their wedding day while in the midst of a pandemic.
Denise with the gals getting ready, relaxed laid back and having fun.
Makeup and hair, the scent of flowers fill the air, who doesn’t love a wedding day?
Shoes and bags, perfumes and jewellery, bridesmaids’ dresses on hangers.
The wedding dress ooh the wedding dress, soon stunning and yet to be worn.
Then there’s the lads, no panic here.
Suits hang in a row with shoes lined below, cufflinks and ties, buttonholes and sighs.
This couple had one rule and it was simply to have fun and party. Those lucky family and friends that were gifted the opportunity to share their most special of days.
A story of “love conquers all” even as the country had virtually come to a standstill. This couple laughed and smiled throughout the day and night.
Tying the knot in a church in Tallaght as the autumn leaves tumbled and floated to the ground. Falling from a line of beach trees that arched over the path.
In the church Thomas waited, head bowed down and hands crossed. Catching and holding his breath as the guests gasped when Denise entered the church.
She looked stunning almost floating up the aisle, her hand held tight by her very proud dad.
Eventually standing beside her best friend and partner.
Thomas slowly turns to sees his life’s love. The one he worships, both ready to make that most ancient of promises to each other.
The rest is as they say is “history”.
Inspiring all who looked on, they walked the streets of their fair city and owned it.
People clapped and cheered as they strolled passed the world-famous Trinity College, Molly Malone Statue, Grafton Street and the Ha’penny Bridge.
Standing under the umbrellas of St Ann’s Street and bringing a glow of love to our crowded streets. It was like watching two celebrities walk among their adoring fans.
Laughing and chatting with passers-by, posing under the mural of “Joyce’s Ulysses” what a day.
This couple walked and walked; this was their town on their big day.
Even those on the Ha’penny Bridge stud aside in respect as people whistled from the arch at the entrance of Temple Bar.
Like rock stars outside the iconic Hard Rock Café. They made their way back to their guests who awaited their company at the magnificent, impressive and historic The Westin Hotel.
Their reception was held in a private bar just a few meters from the spectacular Banking Hall where they sat for dinner.
Denise and Thomas did all that should be done at a wedding. They laughed, they cried, they loved, they hugged, they prayed, they had fun.
Most of all they enjoyed their day and forgot about life’s stresses and hardship.
