A City Chic Wedding In Dublin

Dan and Lisa’s wedding day is inspired by their love of old meets new. Eclectic and personal, this theatrical setting is the perfect spot to say 'I do'!

The Venue Finding a wedding venue that was slightly off the beaten track was high on our wish list. We went in search for unique and alternative venues across Ireland to which they could add their own stamp. With a love for buildings that were disused or repurposed, the spectacularly romantic Boy’s School and the Temple Bar were the clear front runners for us.

The Ceremony The ceremony venue had to have a little edge too. I works in the arts industry and therefore the oldest theatre in the island of Ireland was more than a perfect match. Smock Alley is a beautiful mix of something old meets something new; a dreamlike venue for any wedding.

The Vibe The incredibly historic Smock Alley spoke for itself, so we tried to ensure everything was left with a more raw and natural feel. We love natural materials like wood, brick, rope and foliage but also an industrial, metallic style. Low lighting and candles and sumptuous, wintery smells were added into the mix too.

Highlight of the day Strangely it was the same for both of us.; It was our moods. We were worried that it would be over in a flash and we wouldn’t remember anything or that Lisa would be too hyper or emotional to enjoy it.' Thankfully we were both just blissfully happy from start to finish. But if i had to pick one highlight, i would say it was the ceremony. Which was without doubt the most special part of the day. It was just so personal and relaxed.
