Alexandra is from Russia and Philipp from Germany but Dublin is where they fell in love. They met when they both studied in Smurfit Business School just a few short years ago in 2013. Fast forward to a beautiful Autumn day in 2015 and Alexandra and Philipp returned to Dublin and flew their families and very closest friends to Dun Laoghaire to witness their wedding in the place where they first lived together. On our first Skype meeting about their wedding in the Royal Marine Hotel, Alexandra and Philip already knew they wanted to do a "first look" and take some time alone together before their ceremony to have their photographs taken somewhere that showed the beauty of the area. Where better in glorious Autumn sunshine than the forest and views from Killiney Hill? We even had time to stop off for some sea air and sea views at Colliemore Harbour. And of course the wedding day of a couple who fell in love in Dun Laoghaire wouldn't be complete without a little stroll on the pier before dinner and a chance to show Alexandra's maid of honour and Philipp's best man the town they spent that happy year in.
Thanks for a beautiful day Alexandra and Philipp and for the reminder of how lucky I am to live in this gorgeous town! I hope we meet again on the pier someday xx
