Sabah & Darragh


Powerscourt Hotel, Wicklow


Sabah & Darragh had an amazing Pakistani/Irish celebration in Powerscourt Hotel Co.Wicklow.

Their day was such fun to photograph and both Sabah and Darragh were a joy to be around.  Sabah began her day in Powerscourt Hotel with her family and friends. Her make up was done by the uber talented Faye Miller. A very calm and relaxed bride, Sabah choose to do her own hair which turned out beautifully.

Her bridsmaids hair and Sabah’s veil setting was done by Razia Afzal from Bonton Salon.  Her incredible wedding flowers were by Mimosa Flowers in Blackrock and of course the stunning Floral Arch.

Darragh prepared for their ceremony in his family home in Greystones with his mother and father. He travelled to the ceremony in his father’s Citroen 2 CV which had been restored and beautifully kitted out.

Their ceremony was a beauty to behold, set in Powerscourt Hotel’s outdoor sunken garden. Sabah made her way down one set of stone stairs to the centre whilst Darragh approached from the opposite side.  They said their vows and did their hand fasting ceremony beneath their stunning floral arch in front of their family and friends.

After the ceremony we took some family photographs before driving the famous Citroen 2 CV to take some couple photographs in front of the sugarloaf. The grounds of Powerscourt Hotel are ideal for wedding photographs, as the weather was perfect we took our time strolling around the grounds before the couple entered the dining hall for dinner.

During the dinner service Sabah and Darragh changed their clothes to more traditional Pakistani wedding attire. We ceased this opportunity to get a few more couple photographs to capture the wonderful colours as the sun began to set.

Their evening continued with lots of dancing, singing and games. It was an absolute pleasure to capture their day and we would like to thank Sabah & Darragh for choosing us as their wedding photographers and to Powerscourt Hotel for their hospitality x

PHOTOGRAPHY: Weddings by KARA | VENUE: Powerscourt Hotel |

Kind words from

Sabah & Darragh

“Rachel and Karina were our wedding photographers in August 2018. Our photographs are absolutely spectacular and no matter how times we have looked at them since, we always comment on how lucky we were to have ‘Weddings by Kara.,’ take them. There are some absolutely beautiful photographs capturing us with the mountains and trees where we got married which could easily be in a magazine. In fact, we both have wedding photographers in the family and even they have commented on how stunning our wedding pictures are. We’ve had a tough time picking out our favourite pictures to put up because there are so many!Rachel and Karina have also been brilliantly organised from our very first email to them. They were always prompt with their replies and Rachel took the time out to Skype us whilst already being very busy on a shoot in Portugal at the same time. These interactions gave us a lot of confidence in them and though wedding planning was often stressful, planning our pictures was not a problem at all. In fact, when we had trouble contacting our initial videographers Rachel gave me some contacts to try and we ended up going with one of those who also did a brilliant job.We also want to mention how lovely these two were on the day itself. They were calm, happy and genuinely interested in the two of us and our friends and families. At some points we felt that it was like having friends take our pictures. They also stayed beyond their scheduled time in order to capture all the different aspects of the day which was so kind. They were very keen to make the best of the light on the day and clearly had all the skillset to maximise the opportunities.‘Weddings by Kara’ is an absolute dream. Not only are the pictures going to make you absolutely giddy with happiness, the process of getting the pictures taken will be calm and a lot of fun. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone and hope you’d feel the same.”
