Ballyfin Botanical Editorial for Confetti Magazine (Part I)
…With Paula O’Hara Photography

With Confetti’s latest edition currently gracing the shelves, I can finally share a glimpse of the adventure I had styling their Spring Editorial! You can see the full feature in print, but I couldn’t forget the few that couldn’t be included. Ladies and gentlemen, I can honestly say Ballyfin Demesne in Co. Laois, is one of the most mind blowingly amazing places I have ever visited. If you ever get the chance to stay there or if you’re looking for an out of this world Irish wedding venue, jump at it!

Inspired by the elegance and history of the Edwardian conservatory (which is coming up with more prettiness in part 2!) I styled the shoot around botanical elements and was so lucky with the fab wedding professionals that helped me to make it a reality. Paula O’Hara never fails to amaze with her stunning photography skills, and the ladies at Pretty as Picture really nailed the fresh botanical look I had in mind with their gorgeous invitation suite.  Making Faces on make up and Julie Caulfield on hair, worked their magic on Julie and Edward from 1st Options to bring it all together.

With 8 dresses to share, a styled tablescape and lots of pretty details to boot, I decided a part 2 was in order, to really do it justice. You can see the rest here on Friday but in the mean time you can find the full 12 spread and all the details on the dresses, dreamy accessories and where to source them in Ireland in the Confetti Spring 2013 issue.
