Inspired by natures simplicity. I wanted to put a shoot together which allowed each element to shine in its own light without fussy backdrops, or complicated setups. There are so many incredibly talented crafts people, creators and wedding suppliers in Ireland. I was very lucky with the wonderful suppliers who could give their time and skill to collaborate with me on this shoot. Horetown House in County Wexford was the perfect setting, not only is this amazing venue family owned and operated, it really has the warmth and atmosphere to match. It encapsulates just the right mix of old world charm and modern day simplicity. Their white room, was just the right fit for the style I had in mind.
Every detail was given consideration. Choosing dresses from the fabulous range at Alice May Bridal, tailored suits from Benetti Menswear Ireland , headpieces or should I say very cool hats from FAO Millenary, Inspired floral creations from Wallflower – Lennie Wall, beautiful hand crafted jewellery from Lina Varna Designs, wonderful talent by make-up artist Apryl Brennan at Making Faces Gorey, Gorgeous hair styling by Elaine Murphy Bridal Hair, creative cake designs by Louisa at Croft Cake Designs, minimalist elegant stationary by Leuska Designs, and perfect table styling by Paula Asple, owner of The Wilds Ireland. I also have to mention my great Dad, who helped me gather up fallen branches from around our farm land to use as props.
With the shoot I wanted to show that even with sparseness there is beauty. I asked the brilliant Wallflower by Lennie Wall florist to work with me on styling the floral designs for the shoot. Her amazing work helped to bring the whole shoot to life.
I hope you will take some inspiration from this shoot to help with styling your own wedding day. You do not need to complicate or overwhelm yourself with lots of decor and elaborate props. Let the creations you choose speak for themselves on the day.
