On Sun 22 January I was asked by Green Shoes Events to shoot the KBC Wedfest 2017 – Ireland’s biggest alternative wedding fair. It took place at The Chocolate Factory in the Williams & Woods building in Dublin.

The brief was to get shots of sponsors, stalls, stall holders . . . and people enjoying themselves!! So here goes with the story of the day in pictures. Check out lots more of my event photography at John Coveney Events, including high resolution versions of the days shots.

Here’s a panorama of the main space while it was being set up.
