Registry Office Wedding Photography
Registry office wedding photography. It was a lovely sunny winters day for Alison & Brendan’s wedding at the registry office wedding photography. Since it gets dark early Alison & Brendan decided to meet before the ceremony to have their pictures taken.So we all set off on a route we have planned out for wedding photographs near the registry office. It takes in the banks of the Grand Canal, Georgian Dublin and Merrion Square Park by the Oscar Wilde statue.
My Creative Approach to
Registry Office Wedding Photography
I always really enjoy registry office wedding photography. Situated close to the registry office are the nicest parts of Dublin. I photographed Alison & Brendan taking a walk through the city on their way to be married. This approach makes the bride and groom feel like they are taking a nice walk through Dublin on their wedding day and not like they were posing for wedding photographs. It also created a nice story of the day. Following their registry office wedding Alison & Brendan took a horse drawn carriage ride through the city to the Shelbourne Hotel. I sat up front with the driver and I highly recommend it. It is a lovely way to see the city on your wedding day.
What If It’s Raining?
I have photographed a number of weddings in the rain so I have a backup plan for locations. That said it has only happened on a few occasions and 98% of the time the weather behaves itself. Or it clears up so we can get all the pictures done.
On the few occasions it rained we were still able to get all the photographs with a few changes to locations. We can still do the group portion on the canal. Everyone can put their umbrellas up for one picture, like a parasol. Then take them down quickly so I can get that picture. So you will have both versions. There is good tree coverage on the banks of the canal to do the family pictures.
Then I go to St. Stephen’s Green with the couple. There is loads of good tree coverage there at all times of year. Close by is The National Library, Trinity College and The National Museum has beautiful architectural coverage to add to the story of the day.
When rain was forecast, a bride once bought a white umbrella that matched her dress. It thus added to the story and charm of the pictures.
So there are a lot of alternative options around the city centre so we can still get that nice sense of Dublin in the pictures. Whilst remaining dry and still enjoying the time. These are just ideas and of course if a couple has any other preferences around town.
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. Such as 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. Also capturing a wedding in a natural and unobtrusive way so I never need to touch or interfere in a scene.
Alison & Brendan were delighted with their photographs. I always find the most rewarding part of wedding photography. If you like my style and my registry office wedding photographs please get in touch.
