Bride and Groom at Front Square, Trinity College Dublin

Trinity Chapel wedding


A beautiful Chapel wedding at Trinity College, Dublin

A Church wedding with Dublin city crowds buzzing about, high-heels navigating cobblestones, tuxedos to beat the band and drinks to celebrate outside The Pav – there can’t be a better place to get married when you call this fabulously historic Dublin institution your alma mater, and we were so happy to be there on the day to capture the fun for Sophia and Shane.

Wedding Ceremonies at Trinity Chapel, Dublin

Trinity Chapel is a stunning building, the inside of which most dubliners won’t ever get to see and only a privileged few will get to hold their wedding in. Luckily we have Shane O’Neill’s wedding photography on hand from the day (which does it absolute justice!) to give you a sneak peek.

The only stipulation for applying to be married here is that at least one of you have a connection with the College (current, or former student – or are a member of staff) while the good news is that services in this traditional Church of Ireland chapel can be held for all christian denominations.

The building is old-style Anglican, meaning the pews face each other. The inside of the Chapel is absolutely breath-taking. You’ll need to apply to hold your wedding here about 6 months in advance but you can imagine that dates here aren’t the easiest to secure, particularly in summertime.

In July the college is closed and so remains the chapel. August dates are however popular as weddings can be held Monday through Saturday, with times at 11.30am or 2pm. Throughout the rest of the year only weddings on a Saturday are offered to enquiring couples.

For Sophia and Shane’s day Sophia got ready at her family home and arrived in style in a navy Rolls Royce while Shane (in fabulous Louboutins) and groomsmen made the short walk down to Trinity from The Westbury.

Reception at Powerscourt

From The Pav at Trinity it was onto buses bound for Powerscourt House – a 30 minute drive away where a magnificent reception awaited at the renowned Georgian estate in Co. Wicklow.

For Sophia and Shane beams of sunlight were streaming into the house throughout the day right up until sunset, before guest sat down to their celebration meal in Powerscourt’s Banquet Room. The evening’s entertainment took place in the Ballroom with glow sticks in hand and a definite 80’s kick with the Popgods throwing out the hits to a jam-packed dance floor.

Many thanks to Shane O’Neill from Aspect Photography for use of his gorgeous photographs from the day. Shane is a documentary style photographer, incredibly professional on the day and his work is always top notch. Thank you again Shane.

Emma and her team at edithouse are the best videographers you could ask for. They made the entire process so smooth, and of course the final videos produced by them were absolutely incredible. Thanks Emma & Co.
