It’s been a while since I even thought of visiting my blog.. We had a mad, mad summer with big and small weddings, adventurous and traditional designs, happy tears and moments of panic (tall ladders on the church steps… you get the idea) and lots and lots of beautiful brides & endearingly nervous grooms, and all types of meteorological conditions you can think of (we’re talking Irish summers, after all..) just to keep us on our toes and make things more exciting. We’ve had a ball!
I just love it when we are challenged to do something new, when the bride wants ‘something different’, when we’re told to let our creativity ‘run wild’; and we are so fortunate to meet people that think outside the box and trust us in bringing their floral vision to life!
Here are just some of our summer weddings’ flowers and floral arrangements. Hope these images will delight & inspire you!
Here’s to new challenges and amazing floral designs,
PS In case you haven’t heard, purple will be huuuge in 2016!!
This was a beautiful wedding in Marlfield in County Wexford – loved the colour combinations..
The bride chose a textural bouquet of bright green blooms and purple accents.
We used the perfect beauty of the exotic Vanda orchids as the main player of the bridesmaids’ bouquets.
Brittany chose an asymmetrical floral halo with romantic berried eucalyptus, light lisianthus blooms and citrusy-sweet dainty waxflowers.
I absolutely loved designing this oversized bridal bouquet. A lovely mix of peonies and David Austin roses, with accents of summery blooms on a background of textured green foliage and romantic eucalyptus. The setting was Trudder Lodge, in Wicklow, a perfect match for a loose, country, natural bouquet. Wicklow wedding flowers.
Simplicity in floral form: we filled lots of jam jars with fragrant peonies and dotted them on the crisp burlap runners. Less is more!
The fresh flowers complemented the delicious (so I heard!) buttercream frosting.. Cake by Emily’s Pantry
We travelled down to Kinnitty Castle on a bright summer morning to decorate the church and the venue with white summer blooms in a traditional floral design.
These bouquets were probably my favourite designs. The aim is to make them look ‘just picked’ from a walk through the meadows. Photo via Art Wedding Photography
There is nothing quite like the perfume of the delicate sweetpeas, delicately bunched in a simple posie with Astilbe accents. This was a beautiful summer wedding in my hometown, Wicklow.
One of the wedding guests wanted a bright coloured fascinator. I loved the challenge & the client loved her accessory!
It was the summer of oversized bouquets – huge bunches of organic, naturally flowing blooms and foliage. The long trails and scented jasmine blooms brought this bouquet to another floral dimensions…
The bride liked roses and she definitely liked pink.. Did I mentioned that I adore spray roses?
Not only I got to travel to the stunning Birr Castle, but I also had the chance to combine my two loves: peonies and succulents in a beautiful bridal bouquet.
Jam jars and summer blooms – a touch of floral softness in a beautiful whitewashed hall.
Hundreds of orchids and delicate green leaves on the bridal umbrella – loved every minute of it!
I do hope that you found some inspiration… I am grateful and fortuitous to call this my job & I find it extremely fulfilling when people enjoy my work..
