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.

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.

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.
