Celebration in Dublin Smock Alley Theatre

Its still very busy time with shooting all weddings and will be until November. The good thing is I have a lot of beautiful parties to share with you. I will be login another amazing Dublin City wedding soon. This one is from a unique place in our beloved Dublin. Smock Alley Theatre is a performance venue but you can have a wedding there also. I have been there before and remember you can have a dinner there also. This time it was a ceremony and short drink reception ad than all guest move into the city to one of old pub for part two. It was great, especially in the great warm day. Perfect to sit outside and enjoying good company and few pint of Guinness. This time I have a great company of George B.Griffin as videographer and heck yeah, he even organise great ice cream from Murphys thanks for this man:)

So here are few photographs from Niamh and Declan day.

Was there a theme, colour scheme or central idea for your wedding, and if so what inspired it?

We had a losing theme of sorts based around Dublin. Our friend Stephen is a graphic designer and he sourced a Dublin skyline image and edited it to suit us. We included this on our
wedding stationery. We are both pretty fond of pints of Guinness so we our table names were our favourite Guinness pubs in Dublin.

How did you find & pick your venue?

We initially wanted to have a wedding abroad but after a trip to Spain to look at venues, we figured it was too much hassle. So instead we went the complete other direction and thought a wedding in town would be fun. We saw both Smock Alley Theatre and House on One Fab Day so we popped into town for a look and booked them straight away. We decided on having a humanist ceremony.We really liked the history of Smock Alley Theatre and it's a beautiful building. We loved House with its different areas and thought it would be lovely to be able to eat outside in the garden/glasshouse area in the summer.

Was there anything unique in the day? (were any of your, interests, history together included)We had adopted a boxer, Georgia, from the DSPCA the year before and were delighted she made an appearance after the ceremony! We had a few photos of us together as kids dotted around the reception venue.

Did you or friends/family make anything for the day?

We had a little photo booth area with a Polaroid camera and Declan made the frame for people to hang their pictures on. This is a great reminder of the day to have on display in
our house.

Your favourite moment of the day?
After popping into a pub by ourselves to let it all sink in, Declan and I joined the rest of the guests for a pitstop pint in Kehoe's on South Anne St. We were all outside in the sunshine having the
