Joe recently had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Leanne Hale and Darren Langan. The wedding ceremony was held in the Church of the Virgin Mary in Shangan, Ballymun, with the reception in Trim Castle Hotel, County Meath. It has to be said that this was one of our more unique weddings that we've had here at Frank Gavin's - as the reception was entirely superhero themed!
This made for such a fun and vibrant day. Leanne and Darren, along with their two children, Aaron and Mia, are such a close, happy family and it was a delight to be a part of their special day.
The ceremony was beautifully simple, and family played a huge role. The couple had their daughter Mia as their flowergirl, and their son Aaron as their "mini groomsman", which was a wonderful way to include their children in the ceremony. Leanne walked down the aisle to "How Long Will I Love You" , and her groom's smile lit up the room. The couple's attention to detail on the day was amazing - each guest received a mass booklet which was beautifully designed, with two little love birds on the front cover!
As I mentioned above, the reception was held in the Trim Castle Hotel, County Meath. This was such a magnificent venue and the grounds made for some beautiful pictures. The couple really portrayed their personality on their wedding day, as Darren is a massive superhero fan, and this was reflected in the table plan - where each table was named after a different superhero movie - and also in the food! Their wedding cake was entirely superhero themed, as were some wonderfully decorated cupcakes around it:
This was such a unique and personal touch to their wedding day and one we don't see all too often! Other wonderful details at the reception included an "insta frame" (pictured below) and a huge love sign at the hotel.
The wedding as a whole was so unique and personal - from the heartwarming ceremony to the superhero reception! Leanne and Darren are such a wonderful couple and they both made Joe's job so easy for him. It's safe to say the couple and their guests had an absolute ball.
Here at Frank Gavin Photography we would like to thank them for allowing us to play a part in their special day, and we wish them the best of luck in their future together!
See you all next week!
