Real Weddings: Aisling & David
?Working on the first shoot for Bash was an epic experience. I don’t often work as a bridal stylist but the opportunity to be involved with this team, on a super fresh new publication, was too good to pass up. And, as it turned out, this was my last shoot before heading off to get married myself. We had a dream team… one of my closest friends and long-time collaborator, photographer Rich Gilligan and the amazing model and friend Laragh McCann (who I have been working with since she was 15 years old). Our location was fairytale, the clothes were beautiful and really it all came together so effortlessly. Of course, I was a bit giddy with my own big day just around the corner. This will definitely go down in my history as one of my favourite shoots of all time.?
And then they got hitched?
Aisling & David
They are fashion stylist Aisling Farinella and David Wall, co-owner of graphic design company Conor & David. Together over five years, they met at the wedding of some mutual friends (thanks Zonja and Rocky!)
?We brought family and friends together in this little Sicilian town, to celebrate our wedding. We wanted no fuss or grand display – the location was beautiful, so we focused on this and kept everything simple, in keeping with our own style (no mean feat, in Sicily). We chose this location, because Gangi is my dad’s hometown and that of all my family. It was really important to me to be able to share this celebration with them – we loved every minute.?
