Peonies & Wildflowers in Carlingford

I can hardly believe Helen & Kevin’s beautiful wedding in St Paul’s, Lurgan and The Four Seasons Hotel, Carlingford was a whole year ago! Time flies when you are having fun! Helen wanted my signature wildflower styling with beautiful peonies for a pop of decadence. I absolutely loved the bridal bouquets which were filled with fab seasonal flowers such as scented stocks, mini daisies, september flower daisies, veronica, astrantia, lisianthus and peonies. Beautiful photos by Thompson Photography.

Garden Wedding at Larchfield Estate

Rachel & Michael enjoyed a glorious outdoor ceremony in the sunken garden at Larchfield Estate last May.  Simple posies of baby’s breath lined the aisle and a rustic wildflower styled log arrangement sat up front on the ceremony table. Sarah Bernhardt peonies were the stars of the show for the bouquets and the perfect contrast to the pretty aqua bridesmaid dresses from Perfect Day. I loved all the planning with this bubbly bride, her mum and sister, thanks so much for sharing these beautiful memories with me.

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

 

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
