Kate & Yaco were married in Dublin City Centre while Ireland was in Level 5 lockdown and only 6 guests were allowed to attend a wedding. Dublin Registry Office & Bray Seafront Wedding Photography

I’ve known Kate for a long time.  In art class, she was always the best. So needless to say, it put the fear of God in me when she got in touch for me to photograph her wedding. I hadn’t seen her in roughly 16 years and due to Covid-19 we weren’t able to meet up before the wedding. We’re instagram pals though so I knew she was momma to 2 beautiful boys and that they were a super important part of their wedding day.

Their wedding day was really chill. Yaco had injured his knee the week before the wedding so needed crutches to move about. That didn’t phase these two one bit. I met them at the Dublin Registry Office 15 minutes before their wedding ceremony was due to kick off. They personalised their ceremony with a reading by Kate’s sister, a poem written by their pal, read by their little boy, as well as music that was special to them.

After the ceremony, we skipped off to Bray Seafront. Kate grew up in Bray and they now live there so it made sense to go somewhere special to them. Yaco is from Peru, to be honest, I would have rathered go to Peru for portraits but you can’t win ’em all (jokes). We took advantage of nap time to steal away for some couples photos on the beach before family photos at Bray Bandstand. I left them there. They were heading home to Kate’s parent’s house for a feast and dance around the kitchen!
