Hampton Hotel Wedding
It was a lovely summers day for Louise and Damien at the registry office and their Hampton Hotel Wedding.
I always really enjoy photographing a Dublin registry office wedding because of all the nice backdrops in the surrounding areas. The most beautiful and historic areas of Dublin are right on the doorstep.
I have a favourite route that I like to take couples along after their registry office wedding. It takes in the banks of the Grand Canal, Georgian Dublin and finally to Merrion Square Park.
I find it makes couples feel like they were taking a nice walk through Dublin after the wedding. It is not like they were posing for wedding photographs, it is also fun and relaxed.
I also came up with the idea recently of having the guest stand on the Locks crossing the canal for the group photograph which I think looks lovely.
That area of the canal is only a three-minute walk from the registry office. Thus, it is also very convenient for family pictures. It all makes for a lovely story of your wedding day.
The whole process from the registry office to Merrion square takes around 45 minutes. It will thus not take a lot of time out of your wedding day.
Given the current situation I am still able to capture your registry office wedding beautifully whilst adhering to social distancing protocols. I always photograph the portraits outside. Using some of the loveliest areas of Dublin that are close by. The Grand Canal and Georgian Dublin. I use a portrait lens so technically I have to be at least 3 metres from the subject to achieve focus. Capturing a wedding in a natural and unobtrusive way means I never need to touch or interfere in a scene.
If you are getting married at the registry office or in Hampton Hotel wedding, please get in touch. I would love to hear about your wedding plans.
