It was a lovely Spring day in Dublin for Amy and Oliver’s Dublin City Hall Wedding. Amy and Oliver chose me to photograph their city hall wedding for my style. I like to photograph a wedding in a natural and unobtrusive manner. This was just what they were looking for. I find that most people who choose me to photograph their wedding do not like having their photograph taken. So my approach really suits people who are a little camera shy.
I like to think people also feel very comfortable working with me so they actually end up enjoying. I also feel that brides look at their most beautiful on their wedding day. Especially when you photograph them in a natural way. Hopefully, they do that feel like there are being photographed. The guests also look at their very best when they do not feel like they have to pose for photographs. Firstly I like to keep things simple and not make a fuss which I find couples really appreciate.
I always like to give a sense of story and place to a couple’s wedding photographs. The setting of City Hall and Dublin Castle nearby make for lovely backdrops for wedding photographs. It also gives a nice sense of Dublin to the story of the day. I met with Amy at her family home for the getting ready pictures. These pictures are always a nice addition to the story of the day. I never do any posed pictures at the house. I just blend into the background and photograph what is happening. We all then travelled onto City Hall for the wedding. There were some lovely pictures of Amy arriving with her Father and walking along Dame Street. The view from the front entrance of City Hall down Parliament Street is always a lovely vista for photographs.
It was a beautiful wedding ceremony in the City Hall Atrium. It also makes for a lovely backdrop for the city hall wedding photographs. After the ceremony, we did the family pictures in the city hall. I also try to keep these as natural looking as possible and incorporated the beautiful architecture of City Hall. There is also a nice area by the side door of City Hall with an overhead view from the staircase. This makes for the perfect spot for a group photograph.
I then brought Amy and Oliver for a walk around the grounds of Dublin Castle for the bridal photographs.. Amy and Oliver felt like they are taking a nice walk through Dublin on their wedding day. So they did not feel like they were posing for wedding photographs. The grounds of Dublin Castle are also a lovely compliment to the City Hall wedding photographs. It all took only 10 minutes. So Amy and Oliver did not miss too much of their Morrison Hotel wedding reception. Amy and Oliver were delighted with their wedding photographs. This is always one of the most rewarding part of wedding photography for me.
