Smock Alley - Sharon's & Joe's Theatre Wedding in Dublin
So sweet - in Dublin are their roots.
When Sharon & Joe got engaged they were looking at wedding venues in the UK. But as mum Margaret has heard the great news about the engagement, she had only one wish. "Please get married in Ireland". A beautiful relationship between mother and daughter - Sharon immediately said that's no problem, we find a venue here in Dublin.
And what nicer location for a creative heart than getting wed in a Theatre!
In 1662 Smock Alley theatre opened their doors for the Dublin audience. "Opulent & glorious" as it says. After years of entertainment the theatre had to close down again due to structural issues... times have changed in 1787. And then in 1811 the theatre was re-created to a church.
How beautiful that now both is combined... being open for weddings & also offering - to those who are hungry for play - theatre of the finest!
Sharon & Joe couldn't have found a more suited venue for their big day! Followed by a stroll (or drive in a classical car) to The Westin Hotel just a few minutes away where breath taking areal performance has taken place during the evening.
It was another emotional day - for me too. When I left with a warm hug from Sharon's mum & the words "It feels like you are one of the family".
I can't thank you all enough for making my job - not just "a job".
