I love when a couple decide to do things their own way and Shannon & Noel did just that! The happy couple choose the stunning Smock Alley in Temple Bar, Dublin, for their ceremony, before hosing their reception at the picturesque Castle Leslie.
Shannon is from Canada and Noel is from Ireland, so they were being joined by many out of town guests for their wedding day, all of whom were keen to experience a true Irish wedding!
The cobbled streets of Temple Bar were the perfect place to catch up with the groomsmen, who enjoyed a calming pint prior to the ceremony. Bridal preparations also got off to a great start, with everyone excited about the day ahead.
After the ceremony, we made good use of the area’s many colourful backdrops as I captured some photos of the happy couple, before making our way to Castle Leslie.
Shannon and Noel’s two passions; cycling and ice-cream were definitely brought to life. The couple met while doing an Ironman in South Africa, and their first time alone together was on a practice cycle, which of course, led to them sourcing an old fashioned ice-cream bike! This was located outside the gates of Castle Leslie, proving a huge hit with guests, both young and old alike!
The couple were drawn to Castle Leslie for its glorious lake and boathouse, so we made good use of the grounds on the beautiful day, taking photos as we meandered around.
Guests enjoyed beautiful food, entertaining speeches and the cutting of the cake, so all that was left to do was join the newlyweds on the dance floor.
