The day that Christina told me she was wearing a gold polka dot wedding dress I know we were a great match. This wedding was shaping up to be a dream day for me and it did not disappoint. Not only were there polka dots but Christina and Colin had chosen some of the most amazing venues and setting for their wedding day. They got ready in The Dean Hotel, had their wedding at The Chocolate factory and chose some amazing settings for portraits. There were so many personal touches and such a laid back party feel to the day, it was magic.
Like many of my couples Christina and Colin decided to have a first look (the blue door shots). This was fun and so romantic and meant that we got to take some portraits and all of the family formals before the ceremony. We were so lucky to be able to use the magnificent Ivy garden as a back drop for some portraits. The sun was shining spirits were high and like most city weddings there were lots of well wishes from random passers by.
With most of the photography covered we headed over to The Chocolate factory . One of the reasons that they chose the Chocolate Factory is because they first met just next door at D.I.T as students many years ago. One of the most exciting things about the day for Christina and Colin was having all of their college pals back on their old stomping ground, they all managed to pop out to their old local for a sneaky pint. However the icing on the cake was having some portraits taken in D.I.T its self. After gaining permission we were able to wander around the corridors where they first met and take some beautiful shots.
The personal touch's did not stop there. Christina's sister is the owner of Green and Wild, an Irish flower farm. She chose and designed all of the amazing flowers, bouquets and botton holes. I just loved the long yellow ribbon that hung freely from Christina's bouquet, an amazing pop of colour.
