As a photographer, Joe always says his favourite part of his job is being able to attend such happy occasions day in and day out, such as weddings, birthdays and christenings. Being able to provide photographs of special occasions that people can treasure forever is what he takes pride in the most. He had the pleasure of being a part of one such special occasion a little while ago, when he photographed Frank and Rita Lawlor's Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations in Clontarf Castle! Frank and Rita were fifty years married this August and had their celebrations in the same place that they had their wedding reception all those years ago. Interestingly enough, Joe's dad, Frank Gavin, originally photographed Frank and Rita's wedding, and they still have their wedding album today. We were so delighted that they decided to have their celebrations photographed and they made for some stunning photographs.
The day was a huge success, as the couple celebrated their anniversary surrounded by their friends and family - and there were even some people their from the original bridal party! They were treated to a beautiful meal, and had a cake with one of their original wedding photographs printed on it! This was such a gorgeous way of putting a personal touch on their evening, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.
Frank and Rita then had lots of fun recreating pictures from their wedding day, except of course this time they had their children and grandchildren with them. They recreated a picture taken by Frank Gavin of them standing on a beautiful staircase in Clontarf Castle and its safe to say they still look as good today as they did on their wedding day fifty years ago!
Frank and Rita are such a lovely couple and we'd like to thank them for again choosing Frank Gavin Photography to capture their special day, and we wish them many more anniversaries to come!
See you all next week!
