Patrice & Paul – The Rock Farm Slane Wedding
In a tale that seems as old as time right now, Patrice & Paul originally enquired with me in 2018 to shoot their 2019 wedding. Due to a family illness, they had to postpone their original wedding til 2020. And we all know what happened in 2020. Fast forward to May 2022 and these two were finally able to have their wedding party with all their friends and family.
*Segway* I photographed Patrice’s sister Jess’ Dublin City Hall wedding, she enquired with me and got married in 2021.
I’m not gonna lie, when I arrived to a very rainy, and empty Rock Farm, I was full sure I was on an episode of don’t tell the bride. There was no sign of anyone connected to a wedding. The couple were getting ready in their respective family homes and meeting me for final touches at the Rock Farm. Throw a sleeping toddler, a laid back bridal party in to the mix and you’ve got the perfect storm of them being late for their own prep.
When the day finally got underway at the Rock Farm, the rain had stopped and they were able to enjoy their outdoor wedding ceremony under the stretch tent with views of Slane Castle in the background.
Elegant and rustic was the vibe for the reception in the Barn in The Rock Farm Slane, and they nailed the brief. The atmosphere was electric through dinner, speeches and straight in to dancing. What more could you want from a long awaited wedding day?
Patrice & Paul’s wedding at The Rock Farm was a truly magical event, filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. They created a celebration that perfectly reflected their personalities and values, honouring both their love for each other and their love for the natural world. It was a day that will be remembered by all who were lucky enough to be a part of it.
