Wild beauty meets aristocratic elegance in this sumptuous shoot, showing off the craft and passion of Ireland’s best wedding suppliers.

VENUE?TANKARDSTOWN HOUSE, SLANE ?PHOTOGRAPHS?DOREEN KILFEATHER ?STYLING CIARA?O’HALLORAN


THE MOOD?Where better than Ireland to find inspiration from nature’s own palette for the perfect bridal theme? For soft beauty, pair milky pink with duck egg blue for the perfect balance between warm and cool tones. Adding rich florals in berry shades injects a pop of contemporary colour, keeping the look pretty and fresh but still strong. The juxtaposition of different textures adds intrigue to the details. A sweeping tulle veil gives ethereal drama to loose, organic hair – and a found blossom branch, in lieu of a bouquet, grounds the look for the perfect modern bride.

The formality of this?three-tired cake is softened by the wild garden-inspired design while the embossed lace work and finely crafted foliage add elegance and the tiny golden bees an ethereal touch.

Stationery by Appleberry Press /?Crepe Louise gown with illusion lace back, Tara Keely, €2,170 from Alice May / Tankardstown House interiors

A bespoke stationery suite designed by Appleberry Press reflects the secret garden theme beautifully through invitations, hand-drawn location map, personalised venue envelopes and menus. A braided up-do is ideal for outdoor, warm-weather weddings, keeping your hair in check and off your neck and face. It’s also the ideal option to show off a dress with a statement back. The braid can then be undone later to fall into soft, loose waves.

dress

Plunging neckline gown with silk petal accents, Annocha by Anna Georgina, €2,400 from The Attic Bridalwear Boutique

The plunging neckline and daring low back here keep things contemporary and impossibly beautiful. Coupled with long, luscious locks caught back softly to add a demure touch – enough to bring out the die-hard romantic in all of us. A grand, tree-lined avenue cries out for sweeping romantic gestures, unfettered grace and a stunning floor-length gown.
