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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?! TC Photography NI are responsible for the gorgeous memories of this special day, thanks so much for sharing guys.

Real Winter Wildflower Wedding

Rich red tones with winter wildflower styling, blue thistles and calla lilies. Laura & Mark are celebrating their first anniversary today and I thought it was the perfect excuse to share some beautiful memories from their winter wedding.

They were married in Edenderry Presbyterian Church, Portadown followed by an intimate reception in the Tullylagan House Hotel. Laura loves calla lilies and wanted to incorporate them with a loose and natural wildflower style posy with blue thistles and berries.

A Dutch Inspired Real Irish Wedding

Denise married Stephen on the 14 April 2016 with a truly Spring inspired wedding. Having spent some time living in Amsterdam Denise knew the only flowers she could consider for her Spring bouquet were Tulips and I was delighted to oblige as they are my favourite spring flower! The service was held in the Church of the Sacred Heart, Cloghoge, Newry where pretty Cherry Blossom trees adorned the church doors. The church was even celebrating an anniversary, a centenary I think, and they had decked the outside with bunting which was a perfect match for the vintage VW Camper Van which delivered the ladies in style. They continued their celebrations in Ballymagarvey Village. These beautiful professional photos taken by Paula O’Hara Photography tell their story without the need for any more words. Thanks for letting me be part of your special day xx.
