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?!

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.

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

Brownlow House Wedding Flowers for an August Bride

The wedding of Grace and Tom Light took place on the 7th August 2015 in Scarva Street Presbyterian Church, Banbridge with a reception in the fabulous surrounds of Brownlow House, Lurgan. Grace first contacted me after a recommendation from Laura in Ladybelle Bridal and I knew immediately her deep aubergine purple bridesmaid dresses with a dusky lilac belt were going to allow me to incorporate some of my gorgeous home grown purple pom pom dahlias and my favourite memory lane roses. Here’s what I created for Grace and Tom.

Happy first anniversary guys and thanks for sharing your special memories!
