It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a wedding, but what a wedding to get the blog going again. Sally and Emmet, like so many have been moved around so much in the past 2 years. I think this was date number 3 or 4. I don’t think there was ever going to be a scenario where their day wasn’t awesome start to finish. With my senior sales director Paula in the bridal crew, I was in good company too :)
It started out as all Dublin weddings (in my non-native experience) do… cursing missing a left turn in the city center and waiting for Google Maps to recalculate my route via Carlow. I arrived in the Westbury to a busy bridal party finishing up with hair and makeup, and cracking open the bubbles. The party had already started. At the Smock Alley Theatre things were still just warming up as Emmet greeted family and friends. One beautiful ceremony later and the new Mr. and Mrs. kicked off celebrations with their guests before a stroll about town.
Being based in Cork, I don’t do many Dublin weddings but I love a good walkabout in a city… any city, and we came up trumps on Sally and Emmet’s day. Crisp autumn air, blue skies, golden sun, and a model couple in every way. Days like this make my job a joy. Only the setting sun could stop Sally and Emmet in their tracks, and it was time for a quick pint in Nearys before the evening reception in the Westbury. The Westbury was everything someone could want in a Winter/Christmas wedding. It’s just instantly sucks you in with warmth and that giant tree.
Watch out for the dissapearing groomsman act in the Westbury further down :)
