Art Deco Inspired Winter Wedding at The Manor House Hotel

With glam, glittery Art Deco inspired bridesmaid dresses and a charcoal colour theme we knew it had to be wintery pastels for Linzi & Jonathan’s special day at The Manor House Country Hotel on the 7th January 2017. A fresh combination of Faith, Mentha, Vendella and Ocean Song roses for the bride with Pink Avalanche, Faith, Mentha and Ocean Song for the bridesmaids…a treat with the silvery seneccio foliage, silver brunia berries and frosty astrantia with wax flower and a little baby’s breath. Happy First Anniversary to you both and thank you for sharing these beautiful photos captured by Lauren Rutherford Photography. It was a pleasure to be involved and thank you for choosing Ditsy Floral Design as your wedding florist xx

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.

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!

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

 

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

Raspberry & Teal Wedding Flowers for a Seaside Wedding

Laura & Mark recently celebrated their first anniversary and I thought it was the perfect excuse for some beautiful memories from their September seaside wedding. They were married with a church service in the First Presbyterian Church, Newry and celebrated in style at The Whistledown in Warrenpoint which is right on the front with beautiful sea views. Laura gave me pretty free rein with the flowers and with the girls wearing teal, I wanted to incorporate a contrasting colour in the bouquets and raspberry pink was a perfect choice. The bouquets were country style with lots of textures including green thistles, astilbe and pink baby’s breath. The church aisle was lined with rustic jam jar posies which then moved to decorate the tables in the hotel and check out the fab cake…Laura is a professional baker! The beautiful professional photos were taken by Vickey Donaldson Photography. Happy anniversary guys xx

Quirky Vintage Wildflowers for an August Wedding

Julie and Shawn are celebrating their #oneyear anniversary today and I just had to share some happy memories of their bright and beautiful wedding day.12042896_480469482078368_9081309714319031813_n

They were married in the pretty little chapel in Magheralin and celebrated at Hugh McCann’s, Newcastle afterwards. The bridal bouquets were wildflower styled with a clash of bright summer colours, blue delphiniums, thistles, veronica, coral Miss Piggy roses, mini daisies and wax flower.

Julie hand-crafted the most beautiful jam jars for posy jars and these were placed on a pile of vintage style books to create a quirky table centre décor in the venue. My chalkboard ‘Mr & Mrs’ crate and Old School ‘Pick a Seat Not a Side’ Chalkboard complimented the quirky vintage theme. The professional photos were taken by Joanne Kearney Photography. Happy anniversary guys xx

Sarah’s wild and romantic bouquet contained vendella and bombastic roses, pink lisianthus, phlox, astilbe, astrantia, garden dahlias and seeded eucalyptus foliage. 13978155_10157288862120113_411829042_o

The venue décor included my authentic vintage ladder, vintage pitcher jugs, rustic wooden crates and jam jar pew ends. The tables were decorated with hessian and lace doilies and the jam jar posies re-used from the church.

Darver Wedding with Summer Wildflowers

Elaine and Steve tied the knot in the little Parish Church in Darver, Co Louth on a gorgeous summer day last August. The celebrations continued across the road in beautiful Darver Castle. The bridesmaids wore short vintage style dresses in blue/teal and we picked a strong pop of raspberry to contrast with the teal and styled the flowers on natural and wild summer wildflowers. The bouquets contained raspberry spray roses, lisianthus, scented stocks, blue nigella, baby’s breath and locally grown eucalyptus.  The Groom loves superheros, so a quirky twist was the addition of the gorgeous little lego superheros to the buttonholes. The bride sourced these on Ebay!

Happy first anniversary guys and thanks so much for sharing your beautiful photos by the very talented Peter Thomas Photography with me. Fab memories! x
