I can't believe its over a month since our photoshoot in Ballyseede Castle! What fun I had organising it with photographer Tara Donoghue and it has given me a taste for the creativity, organisation and fun that goes into styling such an event! Many thanks to Sandra and all the staff at Ballyseede Castle and all the great suppliers and models who gave so generously of their time and creativity.
I'm a lover of all things vintage and this became the theme of the shoot. Hope you enjoy some of our fabulous pictures! Full list of suppliers below.
The enterance to Ballyseede was adorned with lanterns decorated with fir cones and moss and the front door with a romantic heart wreath made with frothy gyp.
Lanterns available to hire.
Gyp heart made to order.
Being an animal lover it was only to be expected that Arthur the Irish Wolfhound would be the star of the show and boy did he love it (along with my beautiful daughter Sarah!)
Some of the table and mantle decoration in the hotel
Bouquets of the day were a vintage carmen rose and a black and white bouquet of roses, anemone and brunea berries.
Wedding Wish Trees are a modern twist on the traditional guest book. Have your guests write their thoughts and wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs. and tie onto the tree.
These can then be put into a frame or a book and make a beautiful keepsake!
Trees available to hire or can be made to order.
Beautiful letterpress stationary and tote bags were provided by Farrell and Chase
