The day before and after Debbie and Darren’s wedding were not the most promising if you were a “fair weather wedding guest”! But the day itself was just perfect. There were a few showers here and there, but none when we wanted to be outside. Groom, guests and bride with bridesmaids all managed to arrive dry at The Sacred Heart Church, Killinarden, Tallaght.
I, of course, had arrived earlier and was getting some establishing shots; one of which is the camera flying across the mass book. As I was getting this shot, a very kind priest called Fr. Tom pointed out to me that the current open page was for a funeral and that might look a little morbid for a wedding! He quickly changed to the correct page, leaving me gratefully getting one of my favorite shots. Throughout the rest of the day, I was to discover that Fr. Tom, just like all the other guests at this wedding were very friendly, down to earth, nice people
The reception was at the Castleknock Hotel. We’ve been here many times before and have always enjoyed the grounds, large reception areas and friendliness of the staff.
A great surprise was in store for the guests after the first few dances: Celtic Rhythm performed a set for us. These are a marvelous troop of Irish Dancers who put on short shows for weddings, parties and other events.
Here are the highlights of Deborah and Darren’s day:
