The Gathering: Irish Wedding | Styled Inspiration
I’m totally swooning over this gorge-fest of a bridal inspiration shoot on the WTW blog this morning. The pretty mint and teal green colour palette blended with blush and nude tones denotes a sheer, paired back and natural beauty. Set amidst the wild & rustic Emerald Isles, could you get a more perfect location for an ethereal bride?
On a bright freezing crisp cold day it all came together… The inspiration for this beautifully rustic and ethereal shoot was 2013, the year of THE GATHERING. The Gathering Ireland 2013 is a spectacular, year-long celebration of all things Irish.
We chose shades of mint and teal for the wedding stationery as a nod to the Irish green and to link in with the wild landscape.
Little birds bake created a heavenly dessert table ~ velvety chocolate cupcakes, sugar dusted tartlets, mini mint meringues and everything in between.
Jordan the groom was the perfect nervous groom wearing paired back cap and braces, with his trusty best friend (the photographers dog) by his side.
Our model bride had the most amazing red hair with a natural kink. We enhanced and exaggerated her own natural beauty with a fresh and dewy look, using pretty nude tones.
The dresses we picked for the shoot had a soft, feminine and relaxed elegant feel to them. I felt that the surroundings and earthy feel of the grounds would really bring these designs to life. I also wanted to reflect January’s beautiful skin tone and colouring with the winter white and blush pink silks.
The wild romance of Boyne Hill House was captured by Paul Kelly, a documentary style photographer ~ capturing laughter and moments of thought with moment of still pose.
Such a beautiful, beautiful styled shoot! I’m loving the contrasting of pretty rustic detailing and romantic ethereal styling! What says you?
Lots of Love
and remember… keep wanting!!
