Irish Wedding Photographer David Frain | Jenny & Alan’s Castleknock Wedding
Jenny and Alan met 10 years ago outside a local nightclub, and as they say the rest is history. Alan proposed to Jenny at Dublin’s eye on Halloween night, and of course, she said Yes! Their wedding took place at St. Mary’s Church in Lucan and the reception was held on the lovely grounds of Castleknock Hotel and Country Club, in Dublin.
It was a pleasure to shoot this fun and relaxed couple, and photographing Jenny in the morning, while she was spinning around and dancing in her dress, was a perfect start to their special day. After the couple arrived to the church, the kids in attendance, and their Moms, made good use of the red carpet, providing me an opportunity to photograph their impromptu fashion show.
Following the wedding service, we stopped at a lovely park near by for a chance to photograph the newlyweds, in one of their first moments as husband and wife. The relaxed, natural environment, provided a great background for the Bride & Groom portraits, including some infront of a stunning, wise, old, oak tree.
The wedding reception its self was beautiful, and wedding favours were forfeited in lieu of donations made to Barrettstown charity,–which highlighted the positive, generous side to the couple.Their wedding tables were marked with album covers from Jenny and Alan’s favourite bands– including Bananarama, and New Kids On The Block, to name a few. Adding some further excitement was the mariachi band hired by the couple called Tropic Storm–who took the time to visit every guests table to play any requests that were made, acoustic style. After the meal, Jenny, Alan, their families and their wedding guests brought the sparkle from inside to outside, literally, as the couple equipped their wedding guests with enough sparklers to light up the evening sky. The perfect end to a wonderful day!
