Rustic Country Barn Wedding at Larchfield Estate

Hayley & Luke were married on the 10 May 2017 with a beautiful church service in Dromore Baptist Chruch and celebrated with a barn reception in the tranquil surrounds of Larchfield Estate.

hayleylukeprints-021.jpgHayley’s indulgent country style bouquet contained the gorgeous Lady Bombastic garden spray rose, pink avalanche roses, deep cerise scented stocks, pink snapdragon, veronica and lisianthus…and smelt divine! She wore a stunning embellished Pronovias dress from La Boda Bridal Banbridge with bridal hair by Lil’ Miss Colour, Banbridge.

In Larchfield we dressed the guest tables with rustic wooden slabs and country style vintage pitcher jugs of flowers while the Top Table was adorned with a decadent floral runner. Soo much prettiness and a huge thank you to Hayley & Luke for sharing these beautiful memories. It was a pleasure to be part of your special day. Professional photos taken by Gather and Tides.

Love & Happiness in Richhill for R & P

So much love, happiness and kindness remembered from Rachel & Peter’s special day on the 9th September 2016 in Richhill Presbyterian Church and the fabulous Slieve Russell Hotel. Rachel came to me via recommendation from her cousin Laura whose wedding flowers I’d created the year before and we had so much fun planning the shades of pink and blue flowers to contrast and tone with her platinum blue bridesmaid dresses. The bouquets feature seasonal blue hydrangea, sweet avalanche roses, lydia spray roses and lisianthus and baby’s breath. The boys wore natural style buttonholes with blue thistle, pink astilbe and baby’s breath. Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs Lundy and thank you for choosing Ditsy Floral Design as your wedding florist!

This is one of my Epic Weddings of 2016 and as Heather & Gary celebrated their first anniversary over the weekend it’s timely to share these beautiful images captured by Kirsty-Lyn Jameson Photography.

The Ceremony and Reception were held in Riverdale Barn and with Grace & Saviour involved in the Enchanted Woodland creative vision it was stunning!

The venue florals featured on-trend greenery with an unique Floating Arch Installation at the front of the ceremony room with wild and whimsical trailing foliages (yes, it was me up a ladder an hour before the guests arrived). While the long tables in the barn were dressed with flowing greenery garlands created by Ditsy Floral and twinkly mercury glass tea lights and linens supplied by Grace & Saviour. It was all so pretty and perfect for the rustic surrounds of the barn.

The girls wore decadent silver bronze sequin gowns and the bouquets were large, loose and lush in strong shades of lavender, coral pink, burgundy with lots of foliage texture. And as for the bride, well she was stunning in a vintage style slim fitting embellished fish tail dress and quirky birdcage head piece, her bouquet was a fresh free-form design with trailing foliages and gorgeous garden dahlias. Thank you and Happy Anniversary Heather & Gary xx.

Striking Peacock inspired Wildflowers for Fiona & Mark at the Ballymac Hotel

I am so excited to share these stunning documentary style images by Dylan McBurney Photography that capture some of the special moments of Fiona & Mark’s real wedding Sat 4th Feb 2017. Fiona wanted to mix dramatic peacock feathers with wildflowers and spring tulips for something a little different to the norm…a fantastic creative brief for Ditsy Floral Design. Fiona wore a beautiful dress from Petticoat Lane Bridal and the bridesmaids in teal wore stunning hand crafted headpieces and capes by Lorsha Design. The girls all looked stunning with makeup by Stacey at S.A.K Designs. The reception was held in the Ballymacscanlon House Hotel, Dundalk. Enjoy x

 

Wild Romantic Winter Wedding

Throw back to my first wedding of the year when Heidi married Edward and it’s a corker! When the brief is ‘wild romantic’ and the bride marries the groom under a whimsical foliage arch it was always going to be one I wanted to receive the professional photos from and they do not disappoint! Thank you to the very talented Paul of Signature Photography.

Heidi and her bridesmaid carried wild free-form bouquets, let me emphasize ‘wild’! They were filled with shades of cerise pink roses and a fabulous king protea, daisies and seed heads with lots of fern and natural foliage for a greenery look which is so on trend right now!

Heidi & Edward thank you for sharing your special memories, I absolutely loved being part of your special day and wish you lots of love and happiness xx

Café au Lait Dahlia steals the show at this Real Irish Summer Wedding

Nicola & Christopher celebrated their wedding last August in St Patrick’s Hilltown followed by a reception in the Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan. The flowers were shades of pastel pink, blush and blue to contrast and tone with the soft blue bridesmaid dresses. Nicola just fell in love with the stunning Café au Lait dahlia when she came for her consultation and with dahlias in season late summer and early autumn it was the perfect choice for an August wedding. Nicola’s dress featured a stunning beaded bodice giving a hint of glamour and decadence. The boys wore blue nigella with a blush spray rose! It was an absolute pleasure to be involved in this gorgeous wedding and these beautiful memories were captured by Catherine McAviney Photography. Thank you for choosing Ditsy Floral Design – Wedding Florist x

 

Shades of Lavender for a Real September Bride

Rebecca and Daniel were married on a lovely September day last year in Annaclone Presbyterian Church and the celebrations continued by the sea at Ballygally Castle Hotel. The bridesmaids wore a deep lavender 50s style dress with full tulle skirt from Perfect Day and we chose gorgeous shades of lilac, lavender and pink with pretty snowberries for the flowers. Bouquets of sweet dolomiti and memory lane roses, lisianthus, scabious, waxflower, phlox, limonium, astrantia, snowberries and eucalyptus in a ‘just picked’ garden style for the girls. The boys wore rustic buttonholes of snowberries with lisianthus buds, astrantia, wax flower and foliage…who says the boys have to wear flowers?!

2016 Best Bits

2016 saw me celebrating my 3rd wedding season and really developing my love of wild and natural wedding flowers with a vintage vibe. It was a riot of colour, beautiful blooms and hard work! Here is just a snap shot of what I got up to.

I cannot help but look forward to everything 2017 throws my way. Seriously love my job lol! Thanks for being and continuing to be part of this wonderful floral journey.  Elaine xx

 

Rich & Velvety Real Banbridge Wedding

Fiona & Keith are celebrating their ONE year anniversary today and I thought it was the perfect excuse to share some beautiful memories from their autumn wedding.

They were married in Saint Therese Church Banbridge and continued the celebrations in elegant surrounds of The Manor House Hotel. The bridesmaids wore a deep Bordeaux Red colour and the bride accessorised her lace embellished dress with a grey belt, grey shoes and a cosy grey fur stole. So I wanted to bring the deep red and grey colours into the bride’s bouquet with contrasting lilac and soft blush colours and the result was one of my absolute favourites from 2015 which makes me so excited to share these gorgeous images taken by Wild Daisy Art Photography.

The bride’s bouquet contained black backer, memory lane and upper secret roses with silvery succulents, silver brunia berries, peach hypericum, astilbe, wax flower, baby’s breath and eucalyptus. The bridesmaid posies were fluffy clouds of baby’s breath mixed with wax flower for a wintery touch!

The new Mr & Mrs McVitty had a biscuit themed table plan which I just loved and had to mention as it makes me smile to think of it. I would definitely have wanted to be on the custard cream table!!

 Happy anniversary guys xx

Coral Charm Wedding Flowers for a May Bride by Ditsy Floral

As the nights draw in it’s just lovely to sit down and sort through some beautiful professional photos shared by a summer bride.

Niamh married Mark on the 28th May 2016 with an intimate garden ceremony at The Carriage Rooms Montalto Estate an exclusive luxury estate in the rural heartland of Co Down. Such a beautiful venue, it’s easy to see why this couple chose it for their special day. Niamh’s vision for her flowers was the stunning coral charm peony with lots of foliage texture in a large and natural ‘garden style’ bouquet…just my favourite!

It’s a pleasure to share this sneak peak by Ken Haddock Photography and thank you for choosing Ditsy Floral Design xx

“Thank-you again for all your hard work for our wedding day. The flowers were gorgeous. I have recently got some photos through from our photographer, Ken Haddock, and thought you might like them.” Niamh & Mark
