Sunny May Wedding in Banbridge

Kathryn & Richard Wright were married in Ballydown Presbyterian Church back in May and celebrated at the beautiful Larchfield Estate.

I loved all the planning with Kathryn and my signature ‘just picked’ style added a relaxed, natural feel to the bridal bouquets. Huge congratulations to you both and thank you for sharing these beautiful memories captured by Adam & Grace with me.

LOVE filled Rustic Ceremony at the Mill

Kelly & Niall married 30 Sep 2017 with a beautiful ceremony in The Mill at Ballydugan.  Kelly chose a woodland theme to compliment the venue’s rustic style with log slices for her guest tables and rich autumnal colours and texures in her bouquet. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of pale pink hydrangea with baby’s breath, while the men’s buttonholes featured Black Bacarra roses with blue thistles! Wishing you both lots of happiness as you celebrate your first anniversary and thank you for sharing these beautiful memories with me.

Wildflowers & Wheat: a Rustic Wedding

I love a wildflower wedding and when Mary married Jason last August in my home village of Loughbrickland, I got to mix fresh seasonal wildflowers in shades of lilac and lavender with a little bit of wheat for a nod to the season and the resulting bouquets were just fab!! Plus we had lots of pretty details with hair flowers, rustic buttonholes and gin bottle tablecentres!

Mary & Jason are celebrating their first anniversary today and I wanted to celebrate it by sharing some of their precious memories. Happy anniversary guys and thank you for choosing Ditsy Floral Design to be involved in your special day. Photos by Mark Barton Photography.

Mary also sent me this lovely comment:

“Thank you so so much Elaine!! I loved my flowers!!! You made everything come together so perfectly!!!! Amazing job!!!”

 It was my pleasure xx

Gorgeous sweet avalanche and sweet dolomiti roses with scented stocks, lisianthus, astilbe, nigella and baby’s breath.

Enchanted Woodland Wedding at Riverdale Barn

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.

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
