I was very lucky to be involved in recording the final of the annual Concern Worldwide schools debates. The Concern debates have been going strong since 1984. It forms a large part of Concern Worldwide’s development education programme which aims to inform Irish citizens about development and advocacy issues to do with the underdeveloped world.
Back in May I had the pleasure of working with Concern Worldwide again with a small project concerning Africa Day. Africa Day is an annual event which is celebrated across the world on May 25th every year. In Ireland Irish Aid organises a series of events that take place across Ireland which include music, art and other cultural events. The events aim to raise awareness of development issues across the continent.
Ancha & Kacee’s wedding was a unique experience. The wedding took place in a pentecostal church amid colourful celebrations filled with much dance and music and costume.

Peter & Altannaraa’s wedding was a simple and elegant civil ceremony that took place in Dublin with close family and friends.

Unfortunately I couldn’t be present for the Mongolian wedding but the Irish leg was no less memorable.
Tom and Emma’s wedding was a unique event in which friends and family had a central role in much of the proceedings. The ceremony took place in a traditional Quaker setting. Unfortunately by request of the church we were unable to film the wedding ceremony, however we were able to get wonderful footage of the bride’s arrival at the venue as well as the guests signing the marriage certificate.
