We had the absolute pleasure of covering Sadhbh and Adam's wedding day in March of this year. Sadhbh looked stunning in a tea length dress from Phoenix Gowns, and Adam stepped out in style in a Hugo Boss suit.
The bustle and excitement in Sadhbh's family home was palpable in the morning and went fabulously well with the flowing mimosas. We then headed into town and met up with Adam, his family and groomsmen in Davy Byrne's pub off Grafton Street, and after a sip or two Adam and his best man headed up to the Unitarian Church, where he greeted friends and family in the sunshine.
After a touching and beautifully lit ceremony (we especially loved the reflection of the stained glass windows in the piano) our newly weds and their families headed across the road to St. Stephen's Green Park, where we did their group shots. Once completed family and friends headed on to the Morrison while Sadhbh, Adam and ourselves strolled around the park, where Sadhbh almost lost her veil to the wind and we discovered Adam's cat-like reflexes. We continued our stroll down Grafton Street and across to Hogans for their first pint as a married couple. They were blessed with fine weather until about halfway down George's Street (en route to the Morrison) when the clouds finally gave way and we all hopped in a taxi for the last leg of the jaunt.
Undeterred by the weather, this infectiously enthusiastic couple popped open an umbrella for a last few couple shots on the Ha'Penny bridge, before arriving into the dry warmth of the Morrison to cheers from their guests.
The rest of the wedding and evening was spent among the immaculately designed Morrison Hotel bar and dining room, where the couple and their guests ate, drank and were merry. It was a truly enjoyable fun-filled wedding day that was a pleasure to cover. :)

Here are a few words from Sadhbh about her wedding:
"We met when I was on a family holiday in Dingle and Adam was working on the TV show 'Road to Croker'. We both ended up in a pub called an droichead beag. He thought my brother was my boyfriend but still chatted me up. The rest is history."
The best part of the wedding? "The whole day was amazing. We could't pick just one bit although walking down Grafton street was loads of fun."
Advice for other couples? "Enjoy every second and try not to stress. Ps don't make brownies for all of your guest two days before the wedding as favours (nightmare)."
