Intimate Dublin City Centre at The Merrion Hotel

Intimate Dublin City Centre at The Merrion Hotel – Doreen & John

2020 was quite the year for rolling with the punches. Nothing really turned out how we planned it. Doreen & John were originally going to get married with 200 guests in a big castle in the countryside. Covid-19 forced them to change their plans and in August they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in The Merrion Hotel with just their family present. Some of their extended family and friends were able to come to their Intimate Dublin Wedding Merrion Hotel l later in the day for a small drinks reception and dinner.

The beauty of an Intimate Dublin Wedding at the Merrion Hotel is that it’s just so gorgeous that you don’t even need to leave the building to get some alone time, and some stunning wedding photographs too. We took 15 minutes away from the drinks reception to capture these intimate moments between Doreen & John and it was worth it.

If we learned anything from 2020 it’s that you don’t have to have a big wedding in order to have the best day of your life. In fact, a lot of couples I’m talking to lately are happy to keep things small. Some couples are opting for the smaller event now and throwing a bigger party in a year or two. This means you can spend more on food, flowers, (photography ahem) or even have your wedding in a venue you never thought was possible. I really try to be optimistic in these situations and at the moment, I’m looking for the silver lining wherever I can find it.
